Iskratel's Broadband Masterstroke

12:10 PM -- PARIS -- Broadband World Forum -- When a company says it has developed a broadband access platform with fat pipes and a unique in-built application designed to please the masses, it's usually a claim without legs.

But this year, things are different thanks to Slovenian vendor Iskratel d.o.o. , which has delivered the goods with what must be the most innovative broadband development ever.

What is it? See below.



Yes, along with their line cards, the Iskratel team has integrated four fat beer pipes that have been keeping the show floor visitors happy throughout the first day. A pint of central European beer with your 24Mbit/s connection sir? Don't mind if I do....

Not only that, Iskratel has come up with a winning slogan to go with its crowd-pleasing development: "Access that tastes better." That's class, pure class.

I think Ray stumbled onto a feature that cable should consider the next time it tweaks the specs for CCAP. JB

Is that box designed for double-fisted, er, 1 + 1 redundant consumption?

I forgot to mention in the blog - thanks to Christoph Schierstaedt, head of media relations at German chip vendor Lantiq, who first drew my attention to Iskratel's pumps...
