Cutting Energy Use with Distributed Access Architecture

A Distributed Approach to Energy Savings

As cable operators evolve their traditionally centralized access networks to more distributed, fiber-deep architectures, they will also need to look at how they can save space and energy through the deployment of new mid-mile aggregation architectures.

This white paper weighs the energy savings of bringing the traditional PHY and MAC layers, particularly the PHY layer (which offers the bigger potential energy savings), of the cable headend closer to the cable customer.
