February 12, 2007 -- Research and Markets (Dublin, Ireland) has released a report entitled "FTTx and BPL: Analysis and Outlook."
According to the firm, the report analyzes market trends and significant events that will impact FTTx and BPL deployments over the next five years. It also addresses consumer and competitive pressures that will influence these methods, the economics associated with the deployment of these technologies and the opportunities FTTx and BPL provides for vendors and service providers.
"Both consumer demand and business factors will drive growth in BPL," comments Chris Roden, research analyst at Research and Markets. "On the consumer side, many rural residents don't have access to DSL or cable, but every house in the U.S. has access to power lines. This technology is often the only option for these residents to receive broadband service. On the business side, utility companies will also drive BPL's growth. BPL gives utilities more information to better manage power demand and troubleshoot line issues."
The report provides a concise, executive-level summary of the current state of the market, evolutionary path, and the implications for companies doing business in this space, as well as a wealth of consumer survey data and company profiles aimed at product/market planners.
