DIY Data Center Automation Deep Dive: Challenges and Opportunities for CSPs, Enterprises, and Cloud Providers
Date: 2/2/2023 11:00 a.m. New York / 4:00 p.m. London
Sponsors:
Juniper Networks
More information and registration

Data centers have become ever more complex and critical to most businesses. Automation is crucial to securely and reliably manage them at speed and scale.

Many organizations employ a DIY approach to automate their DC networking infrastructure using substantial in-house development resources and a variety of available open-source tools and technologies. These organizations went down the DIY path with expectations of cost and time-savings, but this approach often proves to be more expensive and operationally complex than using off-the-shelf DC automation solutions.

To develop an understanding of in-house DIY DC automation activities, Juniper Networks teamed up with Analysys Mason to conduct an industry survey of CSPs, Enterprises, and Cloud Providers. This webinar will discuss the findings from the study and interviews, answer your questions during a live Q&A, and serve as a guide for organizations looking to build and uncover the reality of taking a DIY approach.

In this webinar, you will gain an understanding of:

  • The state of data center network automation and the impact of key market trends such as cloud and 5G on data center automation strategies
  • Survey data of organizations across all three segments unveiling the reality of taking a DIY approach to network automation
  • Key motivations and challenges of in-house developed DC network automation and the implications and ‘hidden’ costs associated with it
  • Need for an intent-driven, automation-first approach to Day 0, 1, 2+ data center operations and business case for investing in a horizontal, multivendor platform

SCTE® LiveLearning for Professionals Webinar™ Series: Getting A Fix on Fixed Wireless
Date: 4/20/2023 11:00 a.m. New York / 4:00 p.m. London
More information and registration

As cable operators and rival providers scramble to deploy mobile services throughout the U.S. and Canada, fixed-wireless access (FWA) is rapidly becoming a major new platform for delivering broadband service to rural, exurban and other markets that couldn't be reached cost-effectively with wireline networks. But deploying FWA is much easier said than done because of geographical, spectrum, technical, regulatory, cost and other knotty obstacles. When does it pay for cablecos to go the FWA route? What conditions are the most favorable?

In this session, leading industry technologists will examine the pros and cons of FWA.


SCTE® LiveLearning for Professionals Webinar™ Series: Making the Most of DAA
Date: 5/18/2023 11:00 a.m. New York / 4:00 p.m. London
More information and registration

As cable operators and vendors increasingly deploy distributed access architecture (DAA) technology to shift key functions and equipment from the cable headend to the HFC access network, one critical question is how to get the biggest bang for the buck out of the next-gen technology. What are operators and vendors learning from their rollouts of Remote PHY and Remote MAC/PHY? How are they applying those lessons in the field? What next steps are they considering?

This session will explore the state of DAA and look at where the industry is heading.


SCTE® LiveLearning for Professionals Webinar™ Series: Cranking Up the Upstream
Date: 6/15/2023 11:00 a.m. New York / 4:00 p.m. London
More information and registration

Following decades of focusing mainly on expanding their downstream spectrum, cable operators are now seeking to increase their upstream capacity to handle the heavier loads on their networks caused by wvideo conferencing, online gaming, work-from-home and other bandwidth-intensive applications during the pandemic. Operators are pursuing both short and long-term strategies, especially spectrum mid-splits and high-splits, to boost their upstream capacity without sacrificing downstream space.

This webinar will examine the leading upstream expansion options, the hurdles involved in carrying them out and the ways to overcome those hurdles.


SCTE® LiveLearning for Professionals Webinar™ Series: Good Optics: Paving the Path for Coherent PON
Date: 7/20/2023 11:00 a.m. New York / 4:00 p.m. London
More information and registration

Led by CableLabs, cable technologists are now laying the groundwork for emerging coherent PON (C-PON) technologies with 100Gbps capabilities, which will enable operators to reclaim optical spectrum and break through potential bottlenecks as data demands grow and network deployment options expand. Specifically, they are crafting definitions and designs for 100G coherent point-to-point "aggregation nodes" and "coherent termination devices" that would support C-PON's vast bandwidth capacity. How much difference will all this make? What work must still be done? When might C-PON products be available?

This webinar will delve into these issues and more.


SCTE® LiveLearning for Professionals Webinar™ Series: Tackling the Digital Divide
Date: 8/17/2023 11:00 a.m. New York / 4:00 p.m. London
More information and registration

With tens of billions of dollars in government subsidies now available to build new broadband networks in unnerved and underserved areas, cable operators and rival providers are lining up for grants to build new fiber, HFC and wireless networks and help close the Digital Divide. But, even with those public subsidies in place, that task is much easier said than done because of the equipment, labor, materials, contractors, regulatory, energy costs and other hurdles they face. How are cablecos and their vendor partners tackling these issues? What types of networks are they planning and building?

This webinar will delve into these issues and more.

More information and registration

Even as they prep for DOCSIS 4.0 and other HFC plant upgrades, cable operators are rapidly installing more fiber lines to expand bandwidth capacity, offer faster data speeds, launch new services, slash operating costs and compete with fiber-happy rivals like AT&T and Verizon. Yet, even as they invest more heavily in fiber, cablecos face critical questions about their upgrade strategies, their timing and the costs involved.

This webinar will explore cable's embrace of fiber builds, the opportunities that more fiber enables and the deployment, testing, operational and other challenges that it presents for the industry.

Date: 11/16/2023 11:00 a.m. New York / 4:00 p.m. London
More information and registration

While the cable industry maintains its love affair with DOCSIS, it is increasingly finding room in its heart for PON as well. As operators add more fiber lines to their legacy HFC plant, or in some cases even overbuild their old plant with fiber networks, they are turning more and more to GPON, EPON and XGS-PON technology to expand their bandwidth capacity and deliver faster data speeds and other more advanced services. How is cable's evolution to fiber and next-gen versions of PON going? What speed bumps is the industry hitting? How can cablecos mix and match DOCSIS and PON services?

This webinar will address these questions and more.
