In part one of EXFO’s four part webinar series entitled The MSO Subscriber Wars, we delved into the impact that Millennials—and their disruptive media consumption habits—will have on MSOs. From the services they offer to the consumer analytics solutions they use to measure quality of experience, MSOs will need to stay nimble and creative to keep their bottom lines healthy as this latest generation moves ahead of the Baby Boomers in buying power.
For part two in this webinar series, ARRIS joins EXFO to look at the evolution of network infrastructure from an MSO perspective. Leveraging extensive subscriber intelligence and over 30 years of industry experience, John Ulm, Engineering Fellow at Arris, will discuss how to get the most value out of existing network infrastructures (HFC, RFoG, DOCSIS 3.X, 4.X), their lifespan according to consumer behavior and share a brief look into future technologies ahead the horizon.
Eric Honig, Director of Product Management, Physical Layer at EXFO will provide insight on network transformation best practices including how to mitigate deployment risks and how to future-proof networks through improving visibility across entire infrastructures. In an era of fiber densification and exponential bandwidth growth, “plug and pray” no longer fits. Within this context, Eric will discuss the importance of first laying a solid fiber foundation ahead of any network transformations.
