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:
