Re: Upstream
It weems to be more along the lines of 10:1 or 5:1 ratio. I have seen Cox standard offerings of 5:1, 25:5, and 50:10.

Re: DOCSIS 3.1: What's Next?
This is not a tough one. It's either 3.2 or 4.0.

I prefer cordless shaving. That way, I can do it while I'm in the bath tub.

Re: Transition
"Cord-shaving." I love it. New one on me. I presume that's consumers cutting back on cable in favor of OTT video? In other words: "I won't cut off ALL my cable but I'll cut back to basic cable and go to Netflix/Hulu/whatever for the rest"?

Re: Transition
Mitch,

That's totally true and not just for cable but for telecom operators as well. At a rural telco event a few weeks back, the small telcos said they lose money on video and are using OTT video to attract consumers to higher tiered broadband, on which they make their money. 

Legacy voice business is dying, cord-cutting and cord-shaving are very real trends and broadband has become THE essential and profitable business.

Reading over the coverage of this conference, I'm impressed by the extent to which Internet service is becoming mainstream business to cable companies. Video is becoming a legacy business.

Upstream
Whatever happens, a lot of cable companies need to really start focusing on the upstream. Charter is making a lot of noise about their upcoming "Spectrum" rebranding offering the "fastest Internet speeds possible," yet the upstream on all of their packages is, IIRC, 4 Mbps. Pretty paltry and far-removed from being considered "next-gen."

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
