Going into the 1998 Western Show, much of the tech buzz was about packet-based services over IP, and in particular, voice over IP. In part 6 of this panel, we discuss challenges in getting to lifeline voice services. For MediaOne’s Jeff Turner, it’s network-powered CPE that can perform lifeline telephony. For Broadcom’s Rich Nelson, DOCSIS 1.1 is in market, but what’s needed is a combination cable modem / VoIP device. For Dave Bukovinsky, of CableLabs, the one challenge is specifying QoS parameters for DOCSIS 1.1. “It’s somewhat unchartered water.” (Note to self: Don’t ever color your own hair again.)
