The introduction of Gbps service is dramatically changing cable broadband. Many new innovations are finding their way into cable operators’ plants and many others are on the way. With DOCSIS® 3.1 deployments well underway and DOCSIS Full Duplex (FDX) on the horizon, operators have the promise of symmetric Gigabit services. At the same time, some operators are starting their migration to fiber deep networks while others are looking at Distributed Access Architectures (DAA) such as Remote PHY. All of this will have significant impact on the way operators manage their traffic engineering and network capacity planning.

During SCTE•ISBE Cable-Tec Expo® 2017, at the session, “Traffic Engineering Optimization II,” I’ll be discussing the ramifications of these issues and the significant impact they will have on the way operators manage their traffic engineering and network capacity planning.
