How Working and Schooling from Home has now Driven a Change (2021)

By Charles Cheevers, CommScope

This paper is the result of a poll of ~2,200 CommScope employees during the height of the pandemic last year in November 2020 when according to the NCTA Covid-19 dashboard – home downstream/upstream connectivity growth had not yet hit its peak (which seemed to happen during Christmas/Holiday Season end of December and early January 2021). The poll sought to understand the connectivity drivers and conditions of consumers during the pandemic and their robustness of connectivity and performance ratings. The paper will use some of this feedback to try and put the case forward that there are potentially new requirements for the Broadband delivered home. Based on the survey analysis it will then try and propose the potential for new pandemic home architecture and services potential and outline some of the new device and system elements that could play a new role for Cable Operators to continue to own the digital connectivity and services for their consumers.
