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.
The 'gleaming city on a hill,' Steve Saunders calls it. But who is going to take us from today's NFV componentry to the grand future of a self-driving network? Here's a look at the vendors hoping to make it happen.
Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.
During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.
She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
