of my favorite events is quickly approaching—Light Reading’s Cable
Next-Gen Technologies & Strategies. This one-day conference, entitled “Taking the Next
Leap,” will be held on Thursday, March 27 at The
Cable Center in Denver, Colorado. It takes a look at
the cable industry’s efforts to develop and deploy new technologies, products
again, I am proud to be part of a great open panel discussion—Beyond CCAP: Evolving the
Cable Network. This year, I will be joined by two of CommScope’s key
customers—Comcast and Cox—and three of my peers from Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco and Juniper on what will be a lively
discussion on the future of converged cable
access platform (CCAP) and the continued evolution of the
operator’s (MSO) head end.
will discuss topics such as:
- Distributed CCAP and remote
- Virtualized CCAP, software-defined
networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV)
- Native IP transport
including Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) and EPON protocol over coax (EPoC)
the continued explosive growth of data services, the move to IP video delivery
and aggressive competition are fueling the continued evolution of CCAP and the
MSOs head end. We have a great panel assembled to explore several differing
network evolution opinions that you will find interesting.
panel also gets at the heart of CommScope’s CCAP roadmap and Converged
Services Platform strategy. It is a truly modular intelligent edge
strategy that evolves our MSO customers from deploying high growth data and
video services today to native IP service delivery through EPON or EPoC, with
support for both distributed CCAP (remote PHY/ remote optical
line terminals [OLT]) and virtualized CCAP architectures as

This should be a great panel and conference. I look forward to seeing a
lot of you there. I encourage you to take a few minutes and speak with me. I
will help you better understand CommScope’s thoughts on any or all of these
topics. You can even send me a message by using the comment section below.
