More Than 600 Registered for DAA Seminar at SCTE-ISBE Cable-Tec Expo

EXTON, Pa. -- Executives from Charter Communications, Comcast, Cox Communications, Shaw Communications, and Denmark’s Stofa will headline an all-star cast of technologists who will share insights on the specifics of the industry’s transition to Distributed Access Architectures at an SCTE•ISBE Cable-Tec Expo seminar on Monday, Oct. 22, the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) and its global arm, the International Society of Broadband Experts (ISBE), announced today. The seminar is being sponsored jointly by SCTE•ISBE and CableLabs.

Kevin Kwasny, Principal Engineer II for Charter, Rob Howald, Vice President, Network Architecture for Comcast, Jeff Finkelstein, Executive Director, Advanced Technologies for Cox, Jamie Brown, Director, Network Technologies for Shaw, and Kjeld Balmer, Head of Network Technology for Stofa A/S, will discuss how operators are using DAA to effect a dramatic transformation of service delivery by moving network functionality closer to the customer. In addition, DAA insights will be shared by two CableLabs technologists—Doug Jones, Principal Architect, and Jon Schnorr, Lead Engineer, Network Technologies—as well as by a variety of vendor thought leaders.

A follow-up to last year’s overwhelmingly successful Remote PHY seminar at Expo, the morning event will address the ability of DAAs and the Headend Rearchitected as a Datacenter (HERD) to drive cost efficiencies, faster time to market, and increased customer satisfaction in conjunction with the continued evolution of cable access networks. The DAA seminar already has attracted more than 600 registrants.
