SCTE® LiveLearning for Professionals Webinar™ Series: Delivering the DAA Difference

A decade after the development of remote physical RF layer (R-PHY) technology, Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) is now going strong. Cable operators are increasingly installing R-PHY and R-MAC/PHY gear in their HFC plant to shift key functions and equipment from the cable headend to the access network, simplify their hubs and make their networks more powerful, flexible and efficient.

At the same time, though, cablecos are making their networks much more complex by deploying DAA. How are they dealing with those complexities? What steps can they take to simplify their distributed architectures? How can they still get the biggest bang for the buck out of DAA? In this session, our panel of experts will distill the lessons learned from a dizzying decade of DAA deployments.
