The morning event will feature a deep dive into the emerging architecture, spearheaded by leading technologists from Comcast, Liberty Global, Midcontinent Communications, and other industry innovators. During a series of individual presentations and panels, Remote PHY experts will discuss the rationale and benefits of the approach, technical specifications and capabilities, implementation approaches, and roadmaps and timelines for deployment.
The Remote PHY Seminar will be conducted from 7:30 AM until Noon in Rooms 401/402 of the Colorado Convention Center, in Denver, the venue for SCTE•ISBE Cable-Tec Expo 2017.
