As SCTE has shown in its Energy 2020 Program, cable operators spend most of their energy budget on cable edge facilities and the access network. Now, thanks to advances in technology, the industry has the ability to reduce energy consumption significantly by shifting the placement of the PHY and MAC layers in the access network. In many cases, this shift may enable operators to consolidate cable edge facilities, thereby eliminating an entire building’s worth of energy use.
Such moves must be made carefully, however, because the reduction of energy consumption is not guaranteed; nor is it the only force in play when determining whether facilities should be consolidated. As cable operators evolve their access networks to distributed, fiber-deep architectures, they will also need to look at how they can save space and energy through new mid-mile aggregation architectures that help to minimize the growing capacity demands on their CCAP platforms.
In addition, operators need to consider how this shift will impact the customer. Customer service should be improved, not diminished, by any architectural change.
In this webinar, leading cable technologists will weigh the energy savings of shifting the PHY layer closer to the customer. The technologists will look at how cable operators can leverage proven architectures from adjacent industries to provide massive scale, efficiently and effectively. Presenters will also examine if and when cable operators can eliminate some of their cable edge facilities altogether. Finally, the experts will evaluate the implications of moving the MAC layer either closer to the customer or further away in the data center, depending upon the architecture chosen.
