Story


APPLIED BROADBAND

Uncompromised focus on enhancing the connected experience for billions of people worldwide.

The Applied Broadband purpose is the transformation of broadband technology from a hardware-centric system of interconnected devices into a powerful, new programmable platform.

As leaders in broadband, we’ve pioneered some of the industry’s most important milestones – from piloting the world’s first Cable Modem deployments and broadband network management systems to developing new service models based on subscriber consumption and dynamic Quality of Service (QoS).

Today, we partner with service providers and network hardware suppliers to co-develop the future of the connected experience.

Applied Broadband has been a significant contributor in broadband since it’s genesis. We are active in the revolution underway today, as we leap into a new age of low-cost and reliable gigabit connectivity for broadband consumers. 

By providing the broadband industry with our co-development software delivery model and design methods we disrupt the traditional technology lifecycle and offer a fresh and agile new approach – the result is better, stronger, faster broadband networks that offer the most reliable Internet experience yet.
