Consider: Set-top suppliers already added cable modems, routers and hard drives into the hunk of hardened plastic that does its work near the TV set. They want the TV to be the center of the home universe, and they sometimes call that center a gateway. Similarly, cable modem makers are binding in the stuff of voice services, plus routers and bridges, so that the PC becomes the center of the broadband household. They, too, like the word “gateway.”
Usage: Ask a lot of follow up question when someone says gateway– it could mean any of a half dozen different types of devices.
Usage: On April 6, 2005, EarlyBird, the first satellite placed into geosynchronous orbit, turned 40.
Tactically, GigE showed up first in backbone and national networks. Slowly but surely, though, it’s moving deeper into the network and closer to homes and businesses.
Usage: It’s just too tempting to not put this usage example in here about GigE: Some people talk about gettin’ jiggy with GigE. I know, I know. 😉
Usage: The GHz upgrade is one of three popular techniques to conserve or expand bandwidth – the other two being switched digital video (SDV) or analog spectrum reclamation. The techniques are not mutually exclusive, and will likely be used in combination, over time.
Usage: The guard band between the upper end of the cable return path spectrum and the first analog broadcast channel (channel two) is a 12 MHz slice, between 42 MHz and 54 MHz.
