Now that many of them have rolled out either DOCSIS 3.1 or FTTH networks in their service areas, cable operators are staking their claim in the gigabit market with the capacity to offer blazing speeds of up to 10 Gbps down and at least 1 Gbps up. But as they do so, they are running into a fresh set of challenges, particularly in the home WiFi environment. How can operators manage their new gigabit services to make sure that customers get the speeds and service they're promised? How can they improve the customer's WiFi and mobile experience? In this session, our expert panelists will discuss the early gigabit deployment lessons from the field.
