V High-Bandwidth Individual Remote Access
As the industry advances, new and faster ways for individuals to connect to the Internet (and sometimes corporate networks) are becoming available.
These technologies, providing for fast Internet access via phone lines, your cable TV connection and even your personal satellite dish are known as broadband, indicating their ability to handle larger throughput rates than other technologies such as ISDN and POTS dial-up. These new technologies are great for allowing fast downloads, watching and listening to streaming audio and video, and using the Internet for voice calls. Below we discuss the most popular consumer broadband alternatives:
As we discuss these, bear in mind that some of these technologies do offer speeds fast enough to be used to connect remote offices in a corporate environment. However, because theyre more often (in our experience) used in individual-to-network or SOHO-to-network scenarios, well describe them from that point of view.
