After getting off to a late start, the cable industry is now advancing in the software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) space, even leading the way in virtualizing its access networks. But, while cablecos are beginning to virtualize such key network functions and hardware as firewalls, routers, set-top boxes and even CMTS chasses, they still have some way to go. In this session, we'll look at where cable stands in its cloud journey, what it should virtualize next and which challenges must still be overcome.
