The article focuses on digital simulcast and the cable industry's crossover into the wireless world of voice. Bandwidth management crept to the forefront, as operators mull how they will gain efficiency out of what they have, to serve up growing services such as video-on-demand and high-definition television. With competition heavier than it has ever been, the cable industry has more than enough challenges on its hands. Bandwidth expansion is yet another option, but it has yet to become an option that operators are ready to roll with or at least that is the MSO wide consensus on the subject when discussed in public forums. INSET: Egloff takes Games title.
