26 | BROADBAND COMMUNITIES | www.broadbandcommunities.com | OCTOBER 2015 F or the fourth year, BroadBand Communities presents a Top 100 list dedicated to companies that serve the MDU market. Tis list is technology neutral, as opposed to the FTTH Top 100 list that BroadBand Communities publishes each July. A property owner whose most urgent priority is to improve indoor cellular coverage, get satellite dishes of balconies or add more high-defnition stations to a community's channel lineup can fnd resources here. Te list focuses on technologies that owners use to make properties attractive to residents rather than technologies they use to operate their buildings efciently. Companies on the list do one or more of the following: • Sell video, Internet, telephone, managed Wi-Fi and related services to residents of multifamily properties, either individually or in bulk, through agreements with property owners • Design, build or manage broadband networks in multifamily properties under contract to property owners or service providers • Ofer expertise to property owners or MDU service providers about the legal, fnancial and marketing aspects of delivering broadband • Provide equipment for wired broadband networks in MDUs • Provide equipment for video headends and video distribution in MDUs • Provide equipment for wireless broadband (either cellular or Wi-Fi) in MDUs • Provide back-ofce software or services for subscriber management, customer care, billing and related functions • Ofer solutions for MDU technology amenities beyond the triple-play. Some companies sell products and services directly to property owners, and others sell products and services to their providers, such as private cable operators. However, whether property owners deal directly or indirectly with these companies, they all provide solutions that property owners should be aware of. CRITERIA AND SELECTION PROCESS To select the Top 100 MDU technology providers, BroadBand Communities consulted a panel of industry experts. Because experts don't always agree and because changes were taking place in the industry as this feature was researched and prepared, the magazine's editors made the fnal selections.
