Cable networks—like their telco network counterparts—are facing a major challenge in the form of exploding
data traffic. Cable operators are being forced to invest heavily just to maintain performance levels. The hybrid
fiber-coaxial (HFC) network has substantial latent capacity. However, legacy video and analog/RF transmission
in the access network severely limit capacity and network flexibility. Additionally, the cable-specific equipment
in the head-end is expensive, occupies a lot of space and consumes a lot of power.
Our partnerships are powerful. We deliver broader, longer-lasting impact in our work through collaboration.
