LRTV Interview: Comcast's Tony Werner

Comcast Corp. (Nasdaq: CMCSA, CMCSK)'s migration to a "protocol agnostic" platform may be stealing plenty of headlines this week as the MSO kicks off its first market trials, but it wasn't the only topic covered when we caught up with Comcast's CTO Tony Werner at The Cable Show in New Orleans. (See Comcast Ready to Test New Traffic Cop, Comcast Getting 'Protocol Agnostic', and Comcast CTO: Manage People, Not Protocols.)

In addition to offering some details about Comcast's new capacity management system, Werner, in this extended, exclusive interview, also discusses: the MSO's involvement with the new Clearwire LLC (Nasdaq: CLWR); its expected support of tru2way; how it's gearing up for the digital TV transition; and Comcast's aggressive adoption of Docsis 3.0.
