Train mapping the Journey to 10G

Craig Coogan

The cable access journey to 10G can be made in many ways, all of which end up at the ultimate destination: DOCSIS 4.0 and/or PON. While many operators and vendors are focused on the destination, this presentation showcases the actual journey: how to start, which stops to make, and how to make the most of the journey, all while still getting to the desired 10G destination. So, pack your bags, grab your train map, and all aboard!

Taking Control of OTT Video with Managed ABR

Jim Owens

Adaptive Bitrate (ABR) video unleashed OTT streaming but has unique challenges. It is driven by the independent actions of millions of players, and technologies to manage it are mainly reactive. This presentation will discuss techniques for proactive management of ABR video services utilizing manifest control integrated with existing infrastructure. This proactive, policy-driven approach can create a personalized viewing experience that centrally manages video quality and delivery resources.

Scaling Services in a sustainable manner with the best QoS

Phil Cardy

80%+ of a typical home gateway lifetime CO2 footprint is due to power consumption. We will discuss how home device power consumption can be reduced, monitored, and managed, including giving consumers the ability to control the consumption vs experience trade-offs.

The Future of New Services in Wi-Fi 7 Connected European Homes

Charles Cheevers

Wi-Fi 7 and 6GHz spectrum offers higher speeds to match the latest development in access networks and the prospect to differentiate services. We will discuss how service providers can cost-effectively leverage the tools available in Wi-Fi 7 to deliver value to the consumer.

Downsizing POP Locations to Boost up Roll-Out Efficiencies

Alexander Kley & Simon Albert

As subscriber growth continues, operators need more points of presence, but the acquisition of public space in which to install POPs becomes a bottle neck in the network rollout. Reducing the size of the POP also reduces the need for public space. This mini-POP adoption cuts down drastically on the amount of square meters of public space required without sacrificing the benefits of a complete ODF. In this presentation, the speakers will detail the use of mini-POPs in an FTTH rollout for UGG.

Future of Cable and Telco Fiber Access…what Technologies to PONder?

Dave Keane Mirajkar

The future of Cable (DOCSIS) and Telco fiber access will likely continue to evolve with the adoption of Passive Optical Network (PON) technologies. While DOCSIS has traditionally been the go-to technology for Cable providers, the increasing demand for high-speed broadband services has led to the exploration of PON alternatives. PON technologies, such as XGS-PON and NG-PON2, provide faster and more efficient connectivity options for network operators, enabling them to deliver multiple services over a single fiber connection. As a result, PON technologies are likely to play an increasingly important role in the future of Cable and Telco fiber access. In this presentation we will explore the technology options and the fundamental shift to PON.

Keep up with the latest 2023 trends

2023 ANS Trends – Cable Network and Headend

Multi-Service Operators (MSOs) are facing a “Back to the Future” scenario for 2023 and beyond: they’ve heard the familiar call for increased network speeds and capacity for advanced consumer services, with compounded annual growth rates (CAGRs) for average busy-hour upstream bandwidth usage of greater than 20%. Same as it ever was, right?

2023 Home Networks Trends for Service Providers, Consumers and Technology & Solutions Vendors

We now have the technology ability to deliver any service on a connectivity platform at a performance and cost point the consumer is willing to pay. Are we, as an industry, ready for the next major investment in the home connectivity platform to allow a new generation of home services? Here’s how CommScope’s Charles Cheevers predicts 2023 will shake up the home network landscape for service providers, consumers, and technology & solutions providers.

Connectivity in 2023 – Emerging technology to drive industry forward

After a challenging 12 months, there is growing optimism that demand for broadband services will surge again in 2023. Widespread geopolitical trends, along with the cost of energy and low-growth “slowflation,” had an outsized effect on the growth of broadband networks. Added challenges from supply chain issues, skilled labor shortages and logistical constraints limited the speed of network deployments.

2023 Predictions: The Demands of Tomorrow’s Broadband Networks

Elevated bandwidth demand and access to high-quality broadband have become a necessity. The question for service providers is no longer whether it's time to build next-generation networks, but which investments to make, how to deploy them quickly and efficiently and how to engineer, install, and maintain that new infrastructure.
