As high-bandwidth requirements continue to rise over the last few years, multiple system operators (MSOs) transform their hybrid fiber/coax (HFC) networks. Available architectures, such as DOCSIS 3.1 and Remote PHY, rely on fiber-based bandwidth deep into the cable television (CATV) network, which is why countless operators aim to create Node+0 architectures via “fiber deep” initiatives.  […]

Advanced Upstream Blog Series Introduction In the Advanced Upstream blog series we will explore how cable operators have traditionally managed upstream bandwidth capacity planning, how market dynamics and technical innovation are driving changes, and where things are likely headed in the coming years. In this entry we will discuss the “more Nodes” approach – how […]

As we know, the demand for broadband services is on the rise and demand is not restricted to towns and cities. Folks living in rural locations need good-quality, high-speed services just as much as their urban cousins. For the majority of cases, especially greenfield sites with no existing infrastructure, Passive Optical Networks (PON) and Fiber-to-the-Home […]

Fiber is being pushed deeper and deeper into access networks worldwide as service providers continue to address subscriber demands for higher capacity services. Going “fiber deep” could be part of G.fast deployments for telco operators or Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) upgrades for cable companies, but the next step (or end step) is full fiber-to-the-premise (FTTP) […]

The Passive Optical Network (PON) is a telecommunication technology that is used to implement a point-to-multipoint architecture. In order to enable a single optical fiber, the system uses fiber optic combiners and splitters, which is then used to serve multiple end-users without the need for individual fibers between customers and the hub. The coverage range […]
