The cable industry continues to assess how to evolve hybrid fiber-coaxial (HFC)
networks to meet growing customer demands. Distributed access architectures
(DAAs) are of particular interest. A comparative analysis of centralized networks
utilizing integrated Converged Cable Access Platforms (CCAPs) and three commonly
discussed DAAs shows that a virtual CCAP architecture delivers the best power and
space reductions (> 85 percent).
Our partnerships are powerful. We deliver broader, longer-lasting impact in our work through collaboration.
