re: Casa Downsizes the CMTS


It's always been interesting to see Casa--the only vendor to have attained the full, permanent D3 qualification, as best I know--pushing ahead various leading edges. But gaining market share, as you note in the interview, is another matter when competing with the big boys.

re: Casa Downsizes the CMTS


It's a tough market when you consider some of the companies that got into it and then got out -- BigBand and Terayon among them, though I'd argue that BBND was a bit hasty in its decision.  But it's good that there's a smaller company with some financial backing in the mix to keep Cisco, Arris and Moto in check, or at least fill enough of the gaps to make this business sustainable for a company like Casa. And the market may be ripe for other CMTS-related startups, or so we're hearing, so that's a good sign. JB

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
