While triple play may be one of the hottest buzz words and growth drivers within the semiconductor industry, it is insightful to understand the evolution of the various technologies that was required to realize triple play, the forces that are behind its explosive growth, the technology challenges that are going to be faced along the way as triple play services evolve, and the critical role that FPGAs will play in the deployment and build out of triple play services.
Because triple play services touch upon such an expansive set of hardware that ranges from the infrastructure and on through to the customer premise equipment, an exhaustive discussion of all the technology challenges would produce volumes of text and certainly couldn't be covered in a single article. In this article, therefore, we will focus on the challenges of network security and how FPGA-based solutions will be critical in addressing this challenge.
