Barry Tishgart, VP and head of wholesale at Comcast, told Capacity that the increased focus on the sector was part of a drive by the company to meet the evolving needs of its customers.
The company's move towards becoming an MSO has also been driven by increasing demands for video. According to Tishgart, cablecos are in a better position than telcos to roll out quad-play - and even IP services - given their widespread access to such content on a range of levels.
"When we talk about wholesale capabilities to deliver video services that are IP-based or linear, there is competition coming from telecoms operators in the US," he says.
Both Storck and Tishgart attribute the rise in the MSO business model as a direct effect of cablecos having a better grasp of customer requirements, compared to telcos.
Tishgart believes this is where the opportunity lies, not only for cable but also for telecoms. He envisages future convergence between cable and telecoms will be driven by the quad-play model, which could lead to additional synergies between segments in the future.
"Quad-play has a prominent role," says Tishgart.
Tishgart, however, continues to highlight the advantages of quad-play.
"We are continually looking to draw on our strengths, which include voice, video, data and fixed, primarily in the US," he says.
Tishgart, too, agrees with the idea that the two segments can work together on different sides of the business.
"There's definitely some dependence on telecoms services to help deliver end-to-end cable services, and as telecoms becomes more focussed on video, there is potentially more that cable wholesale offerings can provide for the carriers," he says.
