Application Note: Optical Networks For Cable Operators

  1. 1. APPLICATION NOTEOptical Networksfor Cable Operators “In a competitive market, telecom operators like us must invest in next-generation, service-oriented, cost-effective network infrastructure to accommodate increas- ing bandwidth demand and deliver a high-quality user experience.”We Bring the Latest Innovations to Your Network Paul Hendriks, CTO of ZiggoDOCSIS 3.0 is creating opportunities for cable operators todeliver increased bandwidth with enhanced security – and to efficiently offer voice, data and video services viaa common coaxial cable medium. By adopting DOCSIS 3.0, cable operators are able to deliver up to 200Mbit/sbroadband throughput to a single cable modem. The possibilities are exciting. They enable cable service providersto offer premium high-speed services that address the demands of multiple market segments, including residentialsubscribers and commercial customers. With the introduction of DOCSIS 3.0, however, many cable operators haveto consolidate their clustered networks toward streamlined operations. This will include a dramatic reduction inthe number of content hubs hosting video servers, satellite broadcast receivers and Internet peering points.Our Solution –a Flexible Ethernet Service-Delivery EngineWith continued bandwidth growth expected in coming technology maximizes the efficiency of your networkyears, network migration can only be supported by and enables in-service network extension.
