SCTE® LiveLearning for Professionals Webinar™ Series: Cable and 5G: The Odd Couple?

As cable operators plunge deeper into the mobile space, they are increasingly rolling out 5G networks to supplement their other broadband services. Some cablecos are leveraging 5G for mobile offload while others are creating private 5G networks for larger commercial customers. As a result, they are deploying 5G small cells on their HFC network strands and integrating the cells with DOCSIS technology.

What are the most promising benefits of 5G for cable? How can operators leverage DOCSIS for 5G networks? What are the biggest technical and operational challenges to overcome? This webinar will address the integration issues of mixing and matching DOCSIS and 5G.
