On January 9, 2019 at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the annual gathering in Las Vegas for all those who thrive on the business of consumer technologies, NCTA CEO Michael Powell, CableLabs CEO Phil McKinney, Comcast CTO Tony Werner and Cox President Pat Esser hosted “The Future of the Broadband Network”, a moderated panel discussion. The panel announced and discussed the introduction of “10G” garnering global recognition as an innovative push to bring faster speeds, low latency and more reliable network responsiveness to the masses.
A Great Leap, Already in Motion
The foundation of 10G is already proven with cable networks offering 1 gigabit service today across 80 percent of the U.S., up from just five percent in 2016. Similar gigabit services are available by cable operators, like Mediacom, across the world. Ultimately, 10G will deliver symmetrical speeds that are up to 10 times faster than today’s fastest networks.
Redefining Experiences and Opportunities
10G’s promise of faster speeds, more capacity, lower latency and greater security will enable and help fully realize a wide variety of new services and applications that will change the way millions of consumers, educators, businesses and innovators interact with the world. “CableLabs creates the technology that supports the deployment of high-capacity broadband networks and gigabit services at scale for the industry,” said CableLabs President and CEO Phil McKinney. “With the 10G platform, CableLabs will help ensure the broadband infrastructure will be in place globally with the capacity and performance needed in the future to fuel new innovations and emerging technologies that will transform and enhance the way we live.” Simply put, the 10G platform promises improved security, seamless connectivity, reliability, increased capacity and, as the name would imply, up to 10 gigabit per second speeds.
The 10G platform will help new innovations transform consumer experiences in homes, businesses and wherever people connect. It creates new possibilities for smart cities, healthcare, connected gaming, video streaming, virtual and augmented reality, education and businesses of all sizes.
Watch the panel discuss the platform that will support our imagination and keep us at the forefront of progress as we enter a new generation of technology innovation.
