How cable TV networks can help make power generation more efficient.
We’ve seen this movie before, three times.
In the early 1990s, the cable TV industry positively disrupted the television industry by rapidly developing and deploying video delivery standards and technology at scale. Almost overnight, new digital TV network and customer premises equipment enabled hundreds of channels to be delivered across America and around the world—where only ten or fewer channels had been available.
Then in 1997, cable operators disrupted another well-established industry — telecommunications — and created the DOCSIS® multimedia Internet delivery standard. The resulting products outperformed dial-up and non-standard cable modems to launch a new realm of always-on high-speed Internet connectivity that made us leaders in the business of broadband.
