NFV Cable Applications

Wednesday, September 21, 2:00 PM Eastern 

Ever-increasing demand for data and the resulting IP explosion mean that today’s access network is evolving … fast. Headends are looking more and more like data centers, impacting not just the equipment requirements but the cabling infrastructure itself. With this evolving change comes a tremendous opportunity!
Join us for one hour to see how an MSO’s next Inside Plant migration can deliver a strong ROI. We’ll look at how the smartest migration path to tomorrow’s speeds isn’t just easy and cost-effective: it uses components, techniques, and procedures that are already comfortingly familiar. 
During the webinar, you will: 

  • Learn how technologies like NFV, SDN, and IP are driving change in the headend
  • Dive into the Ethernet transceiver road map, and see the technology shifts ahead
  • Explore your options for fiber cabling infrastructure within the evolving headend 
  • Discover a cabling infrastructure optimized for your network’s future technology needs
