About the Webcast
Today’s cable operator must constantly walk the line between meeting subscribers’ bandwidth needs and keeping costs down. This need for balance may not be more acute than in the process of choosing a strategy for fiber deep. In determining how far to drive fiber and how best to partition serving areas, cable operators must analyze the bandwidth gains and investment returns associated with the architecture options at their disposal.
While fiber deep historically has been described in terms of depth of an amplifier cascade, such as N+5 and N+1, new measures focused on bandwidth delivered have emerged to better guide operators’ decisions. By formulating evolution strategies based on delivered bandwidth tied to households passed per node, cable operators can ensure that their fiber deep strategies are right sized to economically meet bandwidth service windows now and into the future.
Join technology and market experts from Motorola and IDC in an informative Webcast that explores the following:
- The bandwidth service windows of today and tomorrow
- “Right-sizing” metrics and fiber deep strategies delivering economic bandwidth expansion
- The lifespan of the HFC network based on service growth projections.
How does the Webinar work?
The live audio is delivered to your location over the telephone or your computer speakers. The Power-Point presentations are presented over the Internet.
You need Real Player or Windows Media Player installed on your computer. If you do not have either, please follow the instructions below to download and install them.
