Once again displaying its ability to provide a competitive advantage to multiple system operators (MSOs), Global Capacity reached a new agreement with National Cable Television Cooperative (NCTC), allowing the cable cooperative’s members and affiliates to expand network reach across North America, particularly in rural markets. NCTC is a not-for-profit corporation that provides its members access to programming networks and industry-leading technology.
The reality of the cable environment today is that cable operators face the challenges of expanding their networks more cost-effectively and efficiently across a wider geographic footprint, addressing the growing customer demand for increased quality and reach of voice services as well as decreased margins for voice customers.
2013 is slated as being a huge year for cable broadband. According to Infonetics Research Directing Analyst for broadband access and pay TV Jeff Heynen, “Cable operators worldwide have a number of bandwidth-hungry applications on tap that will drive…growth throughout the year,” including voice, multi-screen services and carrier Wi-Fi services.
