Do you plan to integrate PON (Passive Optical Network) into your CCAP (Converged Cable Access Platform) migration path? During last month’s SCTE Cable-Tec Expo®, CCAP was a major topic discussed on the show floor. Experts, manufactures and analysts were all discussing solutions that could help operators become CCAP compliant.

 There’s no doubt that CCAP, when fully implemented, integrates multiple network elements into a single device, thereby simplifying, reducing costs and “greening up” the network.

Today, operators are deploying PON and solutions for commercial services, DOCSIS® for both small business and residential, and RF for video. Combining these technologies is essential to creating a simpler and low cost intelligent network. So, how do you resolve any issues you may be having with you network migration challenges? Well, one way is to deploy a stand-alone PON solution, providing you easier migration to CCAP.

 This topic will be discussed during an upcoming webinar hosted by Broadband Technology Report.

The webinar, PON and the Path to CCAP Migration, will take place on Monday, December 3, 2012 at 2 p.m. EDT (7 p.m. GMT). This free webinar will explain the benefit of PON to faster CCAP migrations, as well as the benefits of consolidating network technologies.
