Alan Breznick, Cable/Video Practice Leader - Light Reading

Steve Harris, IPEP, CCNA, CCIP, CCAI, Senior Director, Advanced Network Technologies, Instructor, SCTE/ISBE

Although top cable technologists stress that the industry's HFC pipes still have plenty of juice left, most cable operators are scrambling to install more fiber in their networks. Whether they're going all-fiber like Altice, embracing Fiber Deep like Comcast and Cox or just splitting more optical nodes, cablecos are deploying more fiber to offer more bandwidth, deliver new services, improve performance and cut operating costs. In this session, we'll look at cable's growing fiber diet, the opportunities that more fiber presents and the challenges involved in upgrading the HFC plant.
