Software-Based Cable Access Networks

A Fresh Look at the Benefits and Migration Path for Cable Operators

The ever-increasing requirement for more data and video continues to grow exponentially — particularly with the rise of over-the-top (OTT) video streaming, Ultra HD (UHD) video with high dynamic range (HDR), and data-intensive applications such as virtual reality and the Internet of Things (IoT).

This paper examines this very approach utilizing Intel-based COTS servers, including the benefits and longterm potential for cable operators as it applies to both distributed and centralized CCAP architectures.
