The article presents the author's views on how cable operators can get their arms around the plant requirements for cable-based business services. As the cable industry directs their increasing attention to the sizeable opportunity presented by business services, a detailed understanding of market structure and resulting technical requirements is necessary both for plant construction planners and business planners. The author tries to relate the geography of business customers to resulting traffic density to develop a model for the amount of symmetric data capacity MSOs will need to fully exploit the business services opportunity.
