The Converged Cable Access Platform (CCAP) is a CableLabs -led effort that brings technical and operational unity to two projects: The Converged Multiservice Access Platform (CMAP), headed up by Comcast Corp. (Nasdaq: CMCSA, CMCSK); and Converged Edge Services Access Router (CESAR), headed up by Time Warner Cable Inc. (NYSE: TWC).

CCAP aims to reconcile key differences between CMAP and CESAR, including specifications for products that can serve cable systems with small or large service groups. CCAP also resolves differences in encryption, enabling vendors to integrate the encryption capabilities (CMAP's original preference) or keep it separate (CESAR's original preference).

The goal of CCAP remains the same: The development of a super-dense, power- and space-saving architecture that combines edge QAM and cable modem termination system (CMTS) functions and puts cable on a path toward service convergence and an IP video platform.

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.
