Relentless competition is driving cable operators to squeeze more bandwidth out of their HFC networks within their existing opex budgets, a seemingly impossible task. In this webinar, we will share how operators are turning to signal leakage applications beyond government-mandated testing in light of recent tech breakthroughs, dramatically improving both plant integrity and subscriber QoE while spending no more on opex.
