Happy 25th Anniversary!
After 9 years of hard work, the LANcity Cable Modem held a stunning 80% of the global market share and LANcity revenue had increased from zero dollars to $40M per quarter!
On Sep 4, 1996, LANcity signed an agreement to be acquired by Bay Network in order to empower the MSO with the backing of larger company and achieve mass deployment.

While Broadband is still mainly being used for data communication and internet access that enables the world to work from home, more than 90% of Tthe TRUE power of Broadband has yet to been tapped. Broadband offers tremendous potential to build intelligent grid, smart cities, home security, global healthcare, autonomous driving, efficient food production and distribution, weather and climate early warning systems, and paperless Government functionality. We eagerly anticipate the day that entire global population has access to ubiquitous broadband connectivity enabling the world to participate in saving planet Earth and humanity.
Rouzbeh and LANcity team – How time flies and the world changes! You laid a foundation for this amazing broadband system that the world enjoys today. The last 18 months of the pandemic have shown how important these valuable technologies that you helped usher into the world have become. Thanks for all that you have done and the wonderful world that you envisioned 25 years ago!. Congratulations on 25 years!
As far as I know, LANcity cable modem is the history and roots of cable modem. Thanks to LANcity cable modem, people can enjoy very fast broadband service at home. Congratulations on the 25th anniversary.
Truly a pioneering technology of its time that immensely contributed in bringing affordable internet to masses across the globe. It accelerated high speed broadband adoption significantly and plowed the way to provide IP based services on existing coaxial infrastructure at homes. In collaboration with Cablelabs, it transformed the traditional CATV service providers into Multiple Services Operators (MSOs) within a very short period of time. The service innovations since and for the foreseeable future owe a lot to this underlying innovation. It was an honor to be a small part of that transformation. Many congrats on the 25th anniversary!
