    The Universal ADSL Working Group (UAWG), composed of
    leading PC industry, networking, and telecommunications
    companies, developed a set of contributions building on the
    present ANSI T1.413 standard intended to create quick
    deployment and adoption of G.lite ADSL. The UAWG's work
    complements recently announced, full-rate ADSL products and
    services. In addition, the group aims to accelerate both
    full-rate and G.lite ADSL deployments. The group foresees
    G.lite ADSL modems being a preferred PC modem technology
    by the year 2000.

    This last sentence is what
    counts, but the article is mainly about ADI chipset being
    compatible with everybody else.

    Also, modiey: Once
    you get above 1mps, a single user will not notice the
    difference in any more bandwith capacity. G.lite is a
    consumer product, it's not geared towards business. Why
    would a person pay through the nose for full rate DSL
    if there is no noticeable difference? Don't get me
    wrong, full rate DSL will be big, as will cable and
    fiber, but g.lite has huge potential also because it's
    the cheapest last mile solution to install and
    maintain. The great unwashed masses don't need 8mps,
    yet.

    Gotta go, ' talk later.

    peace,

    juan

    • In order to supply streaming video on demand, a
      steady 7mps is needed. Yeah, we really don't need it as
      we currently use a modem but the commercialization
      of the product will come with all the features
      needed to raise our monthly bill! Classical capitalism.

      • I agree, but the market for streaming video on
        demand is quite a ways off. g.lite will be the first to
        market version of DSL for the consumer IMHO. Compaq's
        shipped 100,000 units already, Dell's not far behind,
        3Com.., Creative Labs.., etc. I also think people will
        opt for downloading a video for playing at there
        leasure instead of watching real time also, ala
        Blockbuster. I don't think the market's dead before it rolls
        out and Aware is positioned well. They have the right
        clients. They are interoperable with everybody. They're
        not the end all it bandwith, but bandwith will only
        grow in stages as processor speed has, as far as the
        consumer is concerned.

        But, I'm not awake yet. You
        may disregard anything I
        said.

        peace,

        juan

        Is that with or without MPEG compression?

    • please don't forget that the latest ADI/Aware chipset (the AD20msp918) is *DUAL-MODE*. That is, it is both full-rate and G.Lite! It is easily changed from one to the other via a software upgrade.
