High Capacity HFC

MSOs race to deliver gigabit speeds

Multiple system operators (MSOs) today face two challenges. The first is the migration to the Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification 3.1, or DOCSIS 3.1. The second is growing the fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) footprint. With the surge in demand for gigabit speed broadband, adding network bandwidth and capacity is an imperative. And, if you are able to upgrade RF and fiber-optic connectivity at the same time, you’re building the foundation for new and more competitive service offerings.

In order to fine-tune your Hybrid Fiber Coax (HFC) network depending upon the dynamics of individual markets, you can choose from a broad set of technology solutions and deployment strategies. And, of course, you must always be ready to react quickly when your customers’ demands change. Whatever course is taken in the race to deliver gigabit speeds, some guiding principles apply:

  • Accelerating deployment speed
  • Optimizing expenditures
  • Maintaining performance and quality in harsh outdoor environments

CommScope has served MSOs for 40 years, and we’re proud to help our industry grow and evolve. We offer many solutions to help you better connect with your customers.

We Need to Stop Thinking “Not in My Backyard”

We need to embrace more fiber-to-the-home deployments. If we want to enjoy the fruits of great connectivity, then we need stop being afraid of fiber deployment projects that may come close to our homes or even our backyards. In this Fiber Friday vlog, Erik Gronvall talks about consumer demand for more bandwidth and the “not in my backyard” syndrome related to FTTH.

CommScope Definitions: What is HFC?

Hybrid fiber coax is used by multi-system operators to transport content via quadrature amplitude modulation over RF. It’s all connected into a cable modem or a set-top-box. But what does that mean? Fritz Amt explores it all in the latest installment of the “Definition Series” by CommScope.
