Re: Upstream
It weems to be more along the lines of 10:1 or 5:1 ratio. I have seen Cox standard offerings of 5:1, 25:5, and 50:10.

Re: Transition
Sounds about right. I still prefer the NO Cable route & use the streaming services!

Re: DOCSIS 3.1: What's Next?
This is not a tough one. It's either 3.2 or 4.0.

I prefer cordless shaving. That way, I can do it while I'm in the bath tub.

Re: Transition
"Cord-shaving." I love it. New one on me. I presume that's consumers cutting back on cable in favor of OTT video? In other words: "I won't cut off ALL my cable but I'll cut back to basic cable and go to Netflix/Hulu/whatever for the rest"?

Re: Transition
Mitch,

That's totally true and not just for cable but for telecom operators as well. At a rural telco event a few weeks back, the small telcos said they lose money on video and are using OTT video to attract consumers to higher tiered broadband, on which they make their money. 

Legacy voice business is dying, cord-cutting and cord-shaving are very real trends and broadband has become THE essential and profitable business.

Transition
Reading over the coverage of this conference, I'm impressed by the extent to which Internet service is becoming mainstream business to cable companies. Video is becoming a legacy business.

Upstream
Whatever happens, a lot of cable companies need to really start focusing on the upstream. Charter is making a lot of noise about their upcoming "Spectrum" rebranding offering the "fastest Internet speeds possible," yet the upstream on all of their packages is, IIRC, 4 Mbps. Pretty paltry and far-removed from being considered "next-gen."

Live Digital Audio

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.
