As cable operators face an increasing threat from telcos, especially those leveraging FTTx networks to deliver very competitive, advanced service bundles such as Verizon and AT&T, what options do the cable operators have that will enhance their ability to deliver competitive service bundles? Verizon’s GPON-based FiOS service represents the most technologically advanced competitive threat, at least in the geographic areas that have been fortunate enough to be selected for the FiOS network build out. AT&T’s U-verse service, while not delivered over a full-fiber network, still leverages “deep fiber,” i.e., fiber-to-the-node (FTTN) technology that enables AT&T to offer very competitive triple-play bundles that can support multi-stream HDTV services.

With this in mind, what technologies can cable operators leverage to fight back the telco threat effectively? Also, does it make sense for cable operators to continually upgrade their networks, or just transition to a full-fiber access architecture more quickly?
