The article focuses on the increasing demand for adaptive switched digital services (ASDS) in cable networks in the U.S. Switched digital services and ASDS enable cable operators to transform an existing wastage into a pre-installed advantage against satellite and telecommunications competition. Both services will increase revenue per subscriber by deploying the reclaimed bandwidth for value-added services and both also reduces churn through service differentiation.
