ABSTRACT
The article presents information about companies, technologies and people that played a big role in broadband technology industry in 2005. IP Multimedia Subsystem has emerged as a bridging technology for wired and wireless, potentially providing a signaling architecture that can reach out across multiple IP networks. The best part of broadband technology DOCSIS 3.0 is "channel bonding," which topped technology headlines earlier this year for its ability to leapfrog the fiber dreams of the telcos. Time Warner Cable Inc. is leading the way with an ambitious spin on the network-based digital video recorder. "Start Over," a product spawned from the MystroTV division, enables Start Over-enabled shows to be available on-demand just seconds after their original broadcast.
