Research and Markets: USA - Fibre to the Home (FttH) Market - Insights, Statistics and Forecasts

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/24n7r9/usa_fibre_to) has announced the addition of the "USA - Fibre to the Home (FttH) Market - Insights, Statistics and Forecasts" report to their offering.

In recent years the US has been engaged in a more concerted fibre deployment effort, principally from the two incumbents Verizon and AT&T but notably also from Google with its successful investment in Kansas City. In addition, the smaller competitor carriers continue to deploy fibre deeper into their networks. Significantly, an increasing number of municipalities are sponsoring FttH networks, and the recent FCC National Broadband Plan envisages a greater role for public FttH networks in the pursuit of its goals.

Verizon has adopted an FttH approach while AT&T has chosen mainly FttN with FttH for new developments and multiple dwelling units. However, Verizon's fibre-based FiOS network will no longer be built out beyond its existing footprint, and for both Verizon and AT&T there are significant regulator considerations regarding the companies' legacy copper networks, which are to be mothballed.

This report provides an overview of FttH and other fibre network developments, including details of the major fibre deployments and key market statistics and forecasts.

Key Developments:

- AT&T to invest $14 billion in LTE and U-verse network to 2015;

- Maine Fiber Co completes 1,100 mile open network fibre backbone;

- market developments to November 2012.

"The Striim platform is a full end-to-end streaming integration and analytics platform that is middleware that covers a lot of different use cases," explained Steve Wilkes, Founder and CTO at Striim, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
