This article presents an interview with Gareth McIntosh, Senior Vice President of Engineering at Bresnan Communications Inc. According to him, the top priorities for 2006 has got to be the completion of their telephone service. On the engineering challenges of a mid-sized MSO, he said, the first challenge is that a higher percentage of their subs are in multiple locations. He said they would like to do consolidation whenever they can. On potential bandwidth crunches, he said that they are somewhat fortunate because they don't have the 80-channel analog problem, which a lot of systems have.
