SHENZHEN, China -- Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology solutions provider, recently unveiled the industry's first Distributed Converged Cable Access Platform (CCAP) at the ANGACOM Exhibition in Cologne, Germany, making cost-effective multi-service convergence and service digitalization a reality for the MSO industry. Huawei also showcased the evolution roadmap of the DOCSIS 3.1-capable distributed CCAP product that protects carrier investment to the maximum extent.

At this year's ANGACOM Exhibition, Huawei's announcements of the distributed CCAP and DOCSIS 3.1 evolution have become hot topics in MSO access. Compared with traditional CMTS, D-CCAP can converge with FTTx, saving 70% of hub space, 50% of power consumption and 80% of trunk fiber resource. Huawei's DOCSIS 3.1-based distributed CCAP solution employs Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) in the upstream to support simultaneous access of multiple users over a single coaxial cable, and broadcasts data to downstream users divided into different groups using the multiple modulation profile (MMP) technology, drastically enhancing the spectrum efficiency. Synergizing the key technologies of DOCSIS 3.1, such as physical-layer high-order modulation (16K QAM downstream and 4K QAM upstream) and low-density parity-check (LDPC) codec, distributed CCAP delivers 2.3 Gbit/s downstream and 1 Gbit/s upstream over a single channel, making it the highest line rate possible over coaxial cables in the industry. Compared with DOCSIS 3.0, DOCSIS 3.1 is significantly enhanced in terms of spectrum efficiency and bandwidth, and is therefore able to deliver a smoother audiovisual experience with Internet services to users.

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.
