Gigabit broadband killer application call

CIO website recently published a signed Steven Max Patterson's article "Gigabit Internet out of the small market." The article said that Google Fiber Gigabit Internet can be verified attractive prices to win market. Now, users have, the next step is to find the killer application.

Since 2011, Google launched the $70 per month gigabit fiber-optic broadband service in Kansas City since, according to market research firm, principal analyst Michael Render of RVA LLC company data, the United States currently has 83 ISP learning Google started to provide gigabit broadband services , prices are between $50 to $150. Over the past few years, the average annual growth rate gigabit broadband users reached 480%. From the third quarter of last year to the second quarter of this year, the number of users Gigabit to 174,000 from 40,000. Moreover, Comcast and other companies have even launched a 2Gbps of broadband services.

Optical devices as well as optical equipment, continuous improvement and falling prices of fiber optic cable technology led directly to the decline in the price of broadband services. According to data DrPeering website, since 1998, the price per Mbps broadband services has remained slow down more than 30% annually. (This will be another of Moore's Law it?)

Broadband service prices continue to decline, the direct driving force behind the competition. Google such companies seem unattainable with conventional prices provide gigabit broadband services. Traditional telecommunications operators have been complaining endlessly. Broadband is no longer able to become an effective telecom operator revenue sources, like the previous voice services, SMS same. Now more like a Gigabit broadband internet. With Patterson to the article, as iPhone has just launched the era, the real significance App, few users are few, and the platform to wait until there are more applications and users increase came in.

By the US government as well as Juniper, Cisco, Verizon, Google, Comcast and other non-profit organization jointly sponsored US Ignite now are trying to play a gigabit broadband era of application incubator to help developers and researchers to showcase their Gigabit applications. HD video, remote meetings, remote education, remote industrial control, virtual reality, telemedicine, etc., may be the opportunity to show their talents gigabit broadband. HD and low latency Gigabit broadband two advantages. It has been through the use of Gigabit broadband demonstration halfway across the globe violin ensemble. No ultra-wideband, this trio is not possible.

Editing in the Dabie Mountain area travel these days, a particularly deep feeling is that there's a beautiful, if we can take advantage of broadband networks configure remote education, health care and other resources, there is a remote meeting to address the business office, plus high-speed rail will attract more more people settle in their hometowns, and even stranger to pioneering, for the construction of China's urbanization significance. Editing years have seen a Cisco's video conferencing system, which went to the site of feeling is very strong. But that system was very expensive, now can reach that level conference system is not cheap. Editing was wondering if we can use to launch a low-cost Gigabit broadband or even free desktop video conferencing system, the enterprise will be very attractive. SDN and cloud now appears to promote all software-based, cloud-based, but with Gigabit broadband can truly cloud-based.

Telecommuting is one aspect of telemedicine is one thing more interested in editing recently. Fiber broadband will focus decentralized medical resources, work best thing. A few days ago in Denver, is there a summit on health IT, which has a lot of discussion on telemedicine. HCI (Health care informatics) website gives a detailed report. The article said that the United States might is at a turning point in telemedicine. The US government has introduced subsidies telemedicine development policy. The meeting room, 40 percent of the audience said they had begun telemedicine attempt.

With telemedicine, distance education, and so on, Chinese people still have to go to Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen to focus it? Gigabit fiber era to come quickly.
