SDI has been working with emerging technologies since its formation in 1977. SDI’s principals have many years of experience working with advanced technologies at corporations. During the past twenty years, SDI has assisted many organizations in the evaluation of emerging technologies for the delivery of high-speed Internet services to and within the home.
SDI has more than ten years’ experience assisting condo associations in the evaluation of high-speed Internet, Wi-Fi, video and telephone services for use by condo owners and visitors.
One of SDI’s principals is a long-time condo Board member, and acts as Chief Technology Officer for a large condo complex. He has led all the Association’s technology efforts, including Internet and Wi-Fi services, bulk video, and website development.

As System Dynamics Inc. Sandy and Dave have consulted for cable and telephone companies, consumer services companies, home networking and product companies, investors and industry organizations. Their projects have included high-speed Internet services, cable telephony, video-on-demand and interactive services. Their services include strategic assessment, technology and marketing planning, and business case development.
Sandy and Dave created the Broadband Home Central Web site in 2000. For ten years the site was a key resource for the global Broadband Home community. The site was dedicated to their belief that rapid and competitive deployment of broadband to and within the home will enable the creation of new products, services, content and applications. ‘Fat pipes’, content, and the home infrastructure must all work together seamlessly to create compelling value for consumers.
Their email newsletter Sandy and Dave’s Report on the Broadband Home was sent monthly from 2000 to 2010 to members of the global residential broadband industry in more than 100 countries. It was read by management of key industry companies and featured guest articles by industry thought leaders from all over the world.
Sandy and Dave continue to write about these technologies for a variety of publications, including a column for Broadband Library, a quarterly magazine for the North American cable industry.
Sandy and Dave don’t just write about the broadband lifestyle – they live it. Their homes (first in New Jersey and now on Sanibel Island) are both testbeds for new products and incorporate the best of these products into their busy lifestyle. In 2003 they created a “home movie” showing some of these products in their home and describing the broadband applications that have become an essential part of their lives. Since they work from home-based offices, these include business applications as well as many entertainment and communications devices and services.
In addition to their work with the broadband industry, Sandy and Dave have been working with homebuilders and developers so that broadband will finally be recognized as the next residential utility, just like electricity and plumbing. They spoke on this subject at the Builder’s Technology Conference and are featured in an article in the November/December 2003 issue of ARCHI-TECH magazine.
Sandy and Dave have been invited speakers at many events in the US and abroad. They spoke at Broadband World Forum in London in September 2003, Lead With Speed in Madrid in May 2003, numerous Voice on the Net conferences, and many recent broadband conferences in the US. Together they have co-authored recent articles in Communications Technology Magazine and IEEE Communications.
