1998 Western Show: Technology Forum, Part 1
Going into the 1998 Western Show, much of the tech buzz was about packet-based services for the IP side of the plant, served by cable modems. At the time, this was a big change from the current mode of providing telephone services over cable, using traditional circuit switched techniques. To delve into these topics, I moderated a technology panel that included Jeff Turner of Mediaone, David Bukovinsky of CableLabs, and Rich Nelson of Broadcom. Focus: PacketCable, Internet Protocol, IP telephony, and HSD. (Note to self: Don’t ever color your own hair again.)
