The article reports that Time Warner Cable Inc. has always been the technology leader in the cable industry. It developed the hybrid fiber-coax technology that all cable operators use today. And it has been at the forefront of digital and SVOD deployment. That technological leadership is not about to change, CEO Glenn Britt adds. Britt says that having been the technology leader, that is also a never-ending process. He thinks that they've gotten very good at rolling out new products. There are logistics involved, there's training involved, but it's pretty amazing what people can do once they set direction and get people pointed in the right direction. He said that it's a challenge, but it's a challenge of organization and execution.
