Make Broadband Delivery Like a Utility
To support the wide range of applications in diversified fields that FCC's National Broadband Plan is contemplating, we need to characterize broadband as a utility after water, gas, electricity and telephony. So that it will be a simple facility to do all of the different tasks without distractions of its own. We should demand for building up the network infrastructure, in particular that on customer premises, with block-box modules.
Do not be deceived by current offerings on the market. They use "simple" as the smoke screen to promote intertwined end-to-end product and service packages that each is hard to understand, let alone to manage.
It is now possible to put together home networks that can be easily managed by owners without the mystery of "high-tech" flavor that get everyone frustrated. With universal broadband utility outlets, consumer will be at ease in participating various applications.
Please have a look at a pair of white paper type of presentations on the web at:
There are two parts: The "Marketing Overview" is from end-user perspective. The "Technical Summary" provides technical ingredients for realizability.
Comments, recommendations and discussions are welcome.
