Applications for Broad Band Communications

  • Stephen B. Weinstein


Are there any applications for broad band communication, at rates of tens of megabits per second and higher? There are good reasons to question the assumption that a large number of people will want anything more than those activities - let’s call them “applications” - that can run very well on existing lower rate communication networks or on existing broadcast systems. The concept of broad band communication implies a high degree of interactivity at high transmission rates, although it does not exclude broadcast and lower-rate interactive applications.
