The article discusses the home networking (HN) targeted by multichannel video programming distributors (MVPDs) to support iPads and video streaming consumption of their subscribers. It focuses on Comcast's gateway model Dory that features two-line embedded multimedia terminal adapter (EMTA), a cable modem, and a wireless fidelity (Wi-Fi) access. A chart depicting the high-end consumer demand for 100 megabits per second video bandwidth is presented.
