About this title

Synopsis:

Understand what broadband is, why it is the fastest growing consumer media product since the VCR and what it means to you

  • Learn about the historical development of broadband and understand its future course
  • See how this technology will alter how we live, think, and do business
  • Hear how recognized leaders in business, academia, and government see broadband literally reshaping their institutions, through thought-provoking interviews and commentary

The fastest-growing consumer media product since the VCR, broadband is a lightning-fast, always-on connection to a world of digitized media content. A technology that transforms the Internet from a dry medium of words and pictures to a multimedia extravaganza. Until recently, high-speed broadband data connectivity was purely the province of corporate America. But now, thanks to an ambitious multi-billion dollar investment by the telecommunications industry, broadband is fast becoming the most influential medium of communications since the telephone.

Planet Broadband helps readers understand the looming era of broadband communications and how they can profit and prosper from its onset. Written in an informal-but-informed voice, it begins with an observation about the broadband age. Each chapter discusses a key element or implication of the broadband era, including references to its historical development, explanations of how it works, and discussions of its influence on various elements of society. The book includes anecdotes, quotations, and interview excerpts from recognizable leaders in business and government that reinforce the subject's importance.

Rouzbeh Yassini is the founder and CEO of YAS Broadband Ventures of Andover, MA. A technology incubator and venture capital firm, it supports novel applications of broadband technology. He is also a senior executive consultant of Cable Television Laboratories, Inc., a research arm of the cable television industry. In 1991, he founded LANcity, introducing the first high-speed communications modem designed to integrate with cable television networks, spawning a new consumer electronics technology category known as the cable modem used today by more than 12 million U.S. households. In 1999, CED Magazine named him its Man of the Year, recognizing his contributions to the industry.
