Like their North American counterparts, European cable operators have their sights firmly set on offering 10Gbit/s speeds to broadband subscribers over their wireline networks. And they aim to do it sooner than later.
But the big question facing European operators is how best to achieve this ambitious 10G goal. Should they upgrade their hybrid fiber-coax (HFC) networks to DOCSIS 4.0, the next-gen version of cable's tried-and-true DOCSIS technology? Or should they ditch their legacy HFC networks and go all-fiber with next-gen versions of PON technology instead?
For the answers to this daunting dilemma and other key questions facing the European broadband industry, please join us for this year's edition of Cable Next-Gen Europe, a Light Reading digital event taking place on Tuesday, June 21. This free, three-hour symposium will focus on how European providers can leverage DOCSIS 3.1 and 4.0, XGS-PON, Fiber Deep, Distributed Access Architecture (DAA), fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP), network virtualization and other new technologies, platforms and services to compete in the hotly contested broadband market.
The symposium's speaking lineup features leading tech executives from such major European operators as Liberty Global, Vodafone, Altice, Telenet, Norlys and Tele2. Some examples include:
