Now that both 5G and Wi-Fi 6 are rolling out across the planet, cable operators have promising opportunities to use these two next-gen wireless technologies to broaden their reach and expand their service offerings. But both new wireless technologies present new technical, operational and competitive obstacles for operators and vendors accustomed to working in a wireline environment.

In this session, we will delve into those opportunities and obstacles and see how operators and vendors are working to incorporate 5G and Wi-Fi 6 into the cable HFC architecture and turn the two wireless platforms into the industry's latest gold mine.


SCTE® LiveLearning for Professionals Webinar™ Series: Pumping the Power of PON & Fiber
Date: 6/16/2022 11:00 am New York / 4:00 pm London
Sponsors:
CommScope, VIAVI
More information and registration

Although DOCSIS still has plenty of fuel left in the tank, PON has clearly emerged as a critical alternative transmission method for the cable industry as operators increasingly install more fiber lines in their HFC plant. Whether they are leveraging EPON, GPON, 10G EPON, XGS PON or some other PON flavor, cablecos and vendors are increasingly deploying some version of PON technology over fiber to expand their bandwidth capacity.

How much fiber are operators adding to their networks? Which PON versions are proving to be the most popular and why? How can operators and vendors mix and match PON and DOCSIS in their networks?

This webinar will tackle these questions and more.


SCTE® LiveLearning for Professionals Webinar™ Series: Prepping Cable's Networks for 10G
Date: 7/21/2022 11:00 am New York / 4:00 pm London
Sponsors:
Teleste Intercept, VIAVI

Facing the prospect of competition from 5G-enabled broadband services, the cable industry is ardently pursuing an ambitious 10G (as in 10 Gbps) initiative to develop its multi-gigabit broadband prowess over a mix of HFC, fiber and wireless networks. But, even with the release of CableLabs' new DOCSIS 4.0 spec last year, it's not clear that the industry is ready to make that next great leap to symmetrical 10 Gbps service.

What will it take for cable's HFC networks to get there? What hurdles must still be surmounted?

In this session, our team of technologists will evaluate the readiness, resilience and reliability of cable networks for 10G service.


SCTE® LiveLearning for Professionals Webinar™ Series: Closing the Rural Digital Divide
Date: 8/18/2022 11:00 am New York / 4:00 pm London
More information and registration

With the US government now doling out $9.2 billion from the new Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF) to spur broadband deployment in rural areas and much more aid likely on the way from President Biden's infrastructure bill, service providers of all kinds are now angling for a share of the large funding pie.

How much can cable operators, other providers and vendors leverage RDOF and other new federal funding programs to close the rural digital divide with fiber builds and fixed wireless? What kinds of systems are operators and vendors looking to build or expand? What are the biggest challenges they face in wiring rural america and how can they meet these challenges?

In this session, we will address these questions and more.


SCTE® LiveLearning for Professionals Webinar™ Series: Edge Computing: The Next Frontier
Date: 9/14/2022 11:00 am New York / 4:00 pm London
Sponsors:

More information and registration

Few things are hotter in today's tech world than edge computing, as companies of all shapes, sizes and stripes seek to bring powerful Internet functionality as close as possible to users at the tip of their service networks. Accordingly, cable operators and tech vendors are now exploring edge compute's potential as they aim to develop and deliver next-gen, low-latency connectivity services such as augmented reality/virtual reality (AR/VR), cloud gaming, holographic video, light-field displays, smart homes, 5G mobile, autonomous vehicles, healthcare sensors, surveillance and facial recognition.

Where does cable stand in this pursuit? What challenges must still be overcome?

This session will examine cable's emerging edge compute strategy.


SCTE® LiveLearning for Professionals Webinar™ Series: Converging Wireline and Wireless Networks
Date: 10/19/2022 11:00 am New York / 4:00 pm London
Sponsors:

More information and registration

With the help of 5G mobile technology, fixed-wireless access (FWA) is rapidly emerging as a promising new platform for delivering broadband service to areas that can't be reached cost-effectively by copper, coax or fiber, as well as providing the backbone for 5G service. But combining wired and wireless networks and stacks to achieve true fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) is much more easily said than done.

In this session, leading cable and mobile technologists will discuss the promise of FWA and FMC to deliver broadband service, cut costs, attract new customers and generate fresh revenues, as well as the hurdles that still must be overcome to make them truly competitive.


SCTE® LiveLearning for Professionals Webinar™ Series: Lowering Latency Levels
Date: 11/16/2022 11:00 am New York / 4:00 pm London
More information and registration

With work-from-home collaboration tools emerging as critical during the pandemic and consumers increasingly using bandwidth-eating applications like video conferencing and multi-player online gaming, cable operators and vendors are looking to lower network latency levels to improve the quality-of-experience (QoE) for subscribers. As a result, cable technologists are now working hard on ways to do just that.

In this session, we will delve into CableLabs' new Low Latency DOCSIS specs and explore the technologies, techniques and tools that the industry is developing to measure, monitor and reduce latency, jitter, buffering and other network performance issues. We will review the progress that's been made so far and discuss what the future may hold.


SCTE® LiveLearning for Professionals Webinar™ Series: Making Cable Smarter With AI, ML, Deep Learning and Automation
Date: 12/15/2022 11:00 am New York / 4:00 pm London

More information and registration

Aiming to take advantage of the vast quantities of customer data they collect, cable operators are increasingly adopting artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), deep learning and network automation to improve service delivery, cut operating costs and gain greater insights into their customers. So far, for instance, operators are applying these technologies and techniques to plan their fiber-optic nodes better, run their HFC networks more efficiently and target their video content and ads to customers more effectively.

In this session, we will look at the most promising use cases for AI, ML, deep learning and automation, the challenges they present and the lessons that are being learned.
