Benefit of Coax or Phoneline Home Networks

Wireless home network connections are fine for many routine Internet access applications. However, when people need to stream high-definition video to other devices within the home -- such as an HDTV set -- wired network connections tend to provide better performance.

Coax and phoneline networking is becoming increasingly important among home network connectivity alternatives, particularly for service provider provisioned networks.

Cumulative households with an in-home provider network utilizing coax or phoneline technology will more than double from 2008 to 2010, according to the latest market study by In-Stat.

"Consumers want web video on their TV and also increasingly want whole-home DVR capability" says Joyce Putscher, In-Stat analyst.

Networking over coax makes particularly good sense in North America where 90 percent of homes have pre-existing coax wiring.

In-Stat's market study found the following:

- In 2010, average PC home network throughput will exceed 150 Mbps in North America, ahead of throughput in Asia-Pacific and European households.\

- Nearly two-thirds of consumer respondents from In-Stat's survey expressed an interest in watching Internet Video on their TV.

- Two segregated home networks (HN) have been evolving -- a service provider-centric network, and a PC-centric network. Each is leveraging different business models and technologies.

Trillion-Dollar Smart Power Grid Transformation

The global energy landscape is undergoing a significant transformation. Renewable energy sources like solar and wind are rapidly gaining ground as we transition towards net-zero emissions. However, this transition hinges on a crucial but often overlooked factor: the modernization and expansion of our aging power grids across the globe. For decades the backbone of our electricity delivery system has been largely static. The influx of variable renewable energy sources like solar and wind presents a new challenge. Smart Power Grid Market Development Integrating these resources effectively requires a Smarter, more Responsive grid that can handle fluctuating power generation and efficiently distribute it across vast distances. This is where a new trillion-dollar energy market growth opportunity emerges. According to a recent worldwide market study by ABI Research, global investments in public grid digitalization and transmission network expansion must exceed $4 trillion by 2030 to meet our
