Utilities positioned to drive residential gateway market

The technology is the residential gateway, and research and consulting firm Parks Associates has reported that the market for this technology will more than triple by 2005. The market for residential gateways, Parks Associates projected earlier this year, will grow from 8.6 million units in 2001 to more than 33 million units in 2005.

.... Parks Associates analysts have reported that consumer demand for broadband Internet and high-definition entertainment services, as well as advancements in home networking technology, will drive the growth they predict for the residential gateway market. But at the present, a number of gateway developers are targeting electric utilities and energy-related applications as the drivers of their emerging technologies.
