MAYNARD, Mass. -- Proxilliant Systems Corp. extended its service health
management solution today by unveiling the next generation of Proxilliant’s Cable Access
Management System (CAMS) – CAMS 2.0 – to enable exceptional operational cost savings and
service quality levels demanded by cable operators in this economic and competitive climate.
CAMS 2.0 has delivered proven benefits of intelligent, proactive and neighborhood-level service
health management in successful pilot deployments conducted recently with leading operators in
the US and Europe:
CAMS 2.0 reduced the Mean Time To Repair (MTTR) for HFC plant-related outages by 50-
CAMS 2.0 reduced the MTTR for HFC service performance degradations by 60-75%.
CAMS 2.0 nearly doubled the efficiency of proactive plant-related truck rolls. Many times,
multiple issues were resolved per individual dispatch.
CAMS 2.0 instantly and permanently reduced noise and ingress by 3 to 10 dB in the return
path. Beyond improved service reliability and plant stability, these performance gains across
the upstream spectrum pave the way for successful DOCSIS 3.0 upstream channel bonding
Proxilliant’s CAMS is an integrated hardware and software solution for proactive, cable-based
service health management. It provides comprehensive, correlated and continuous health
information from the neighborhood level while actively improving service quality — necessary
as cable operators look to profitably deliver their services broadly and deeply throughout their
networks. CAMS features intelligence deployed deep into the access network that works in
concert with sophisticated software in the regional head-end or central data center.
Light Reading founder Steve Saunders talks with VMware's Shekar Ayyar, who explains why cloud architectures are becoming more distributed, what that means for workloads, and why telcos can still be significant cloud services players.
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.
