CAS ROLL Out-V The D-Days Arrives

The year ends with a new beginning for cable TV viewers as CAS finally rolls out in Delhi, Kolkata and Mumbai. All news and articles appearing in a section of the print media about the problems in the implementation of CAS and that DTH being considered as a replacement has been put to rest. The viewers can now decide what to watch on their TV and also control their cable bills. 
The Ministry for Information and Broadcasting issued advertisements in the three metros to end all speculations about the failure in implementing CAS by the year end. The advertisements listed the notified areas in Mumbai, Kolkata and Delhi to be covered by CAS in the first phase of the implementation. It clearly stated that the viewers of cable TV in the mentioned areas will not be able to view pay channels without a Set Top Box (STB) from 31.12.2006. 

C A S Gets Power Hungry

To achieve an efficient broadband delivery network and maintain Quality of Services (QoS) standards in the CAS areas, powering systems become much more important.
Change is the only constant” is an oft-used but appropriate theme for the broadband industry. Changes and developments seem to occur almost daily, which now brought CAS enabled digital signal to our home . This will affect everything from the business structure of the industry to the technology required to deliver new and enhanced communication services. Expanded video offerings such as Pay-Per-View (PPV) and video-on-demand (VoD), as well as internet access and telephony are regular topics of discussion. And while few would disagree that it’s an exciting time to be involved in the industry, the volume and extent of change has created both opportunity and challenge. 

FTTH Explained: Delivering EfficientCustomer Bandwidth and Enhanced Services

Telecommunication carriers worldwide have come to the realization that their aging copper access infrastructure is being taxed as residential and business customers utilize ever-increasing, symmetrical bandwidth-intensive applications. The telecommunications landscape has matured to a point that carriers seek to offer network convergence and enable the revolution of consumer media device interaction. These demands are being met by the deeper penetration of optical fiber in access networks and increasing deployment of fiber-to-the-home (FTTH). As a result, FTTH is the fastest-growing global broadband technology, with significant deployments in Asia, Europe, and North America.

The ‘D’ Day Arrives

After a long wait of four years, CAS has officially been rolled out in the remaining three Metros of Mumbai, Delhi and Kolkata. It was legislated in 2003 and implemented in Chennai in 2004. Ministry of Information and Broadcasting as well as TRAI, the Regulator are dead serious this time in its implementation. Infact, some independent Cable Operators tried to thwart the CAS implementation and went to the court but were disappointed not to get any relief and both the Ministry and TRAI have been regularly updating and preparing the public for CAS through newspaper advertisements.
If the favourable atmosphere continues like this CAS will be all over India by the end of 2007. This will be a turning point for the industry and pave way for an organised functioning, not only of the Cable Operators but the whole sector. This will also bring Cable TV and DTH on a level playing field creating a healthy competition.
