Fiber-optic Internet access has received attention across the technology industry out of proportion to its actual subscriber figures, as Internet content and infrastructure companies call for faster home connections to support video, music, telephony and other advanced Net services. Industry lobbying group TechNet has called on policymakers to support the installation of 100MB per second fiber-optic connections--roughly 1,800 times faster than a dial-up modem--in 100 million homes and businesses by the year 2010.
However, the construction and financial requirements of building out fiber-optic connections to homes make it impractical or wildly expensive in urban regions and other areas with a developed infrastructure, As a result, fiber-to-the-home services are largely becoming available in new housing developments or in smaller cities with municipal governments willing to take on the costs and headaches of recreating their infrastructure, An earlier study produced by Render, Vanderslice & Assoc, found that about 72,000 homes in the United symmetry series case for apple iphone 7 plus and 8 plus - muted waters States will have fiber-optic connections available to them by the end of 2002, As with DSL and cable services, only a small minority of people who have broadband services available to them subscribe to the services, however, According to the survey, about 21 percent of people with access to fiber-optic connections actually sign up..
Despite obstacles, more and more American households will be able to tap into fiber-optic access to the Internet in coming years, according to a new survey. The new study, conducted by market research firm Render, Vanderslice & Assoc., shows a fiber-optic broadband market growing steadily despite the economy's downturn, with the fast Net connections expected to become available to about 1 million United States homes by 2004. Fiber-optic connections to individual homes are viewed by many in the technology industry as the next leap forward in broadband Internet access, as they are far faster than DSL (digital subscriber line) or cable connections. But because the technology requires expensive investments in new infrastructure, the networks remain relatively rare. This means few mainstream consumers have access to the connections at home, and even fewer actually sign up for the connections, which often cost more than today's average $50 monthly broadband fee.

Network processors are aimed at taking the cost out of making networking equipment. Historically, network equipment makers like Nortel Networks designed the chips, software and other components that went inside their boxes. The telecommunications meltdown, however, has forced them to lay off employees by the thousands and slash research and development budgets. "We're tracking about 500 to 600 design wins with network processors," said Linley Gwennap, principal analyst of the Linley Group. The security functions for the IXP 2850 should help make it an attractive offering, he added, because of the heightened concern about security.
