The article focuses on the benefits of wired broadband as well as wireless broadband network. Craig Easley from Actelis, believes that in wired broadband, Ethernet allows carriers to easily support a number of critical distributed applications in both the public and private sectors. Easley says that basic Ethernet services are being used to deliver the next generation of business services, including virtual private networks, high-speed internet and voice over IP. Andy Hood, managing director at Sarian Systems, believes that wireless networks offer many benefits over wired lines, hitting on valid points such as geographical coverage being more widespread and less restricted by extreme terrain.
