Understanding and testing Remote-PHY and DOCSIS 3.1

Remote PHY (R-PHY) is a key transformation towards next-generation gigabit networks. CATV and multiple-system operators (MSOs) are prepping their networks to support DOCSIS 3.1 and eventually FTTH/EPON. These rollouts push fiber ever deeper and closer to subscribers to ensure a better quality of experience.

This educational webinar will focus on the deployment of DOCSIS 3.1 using the Remote PHY DAA architecture. The 45-minute session will cover various aspects of deployment starting with an overview of DOCSIS 3.1 and explaining why R-PHY is the preferred technology. The webinar will also cover the best practices in testing fiber, DWDM and services including synchronization.

Key takeaways:

  • DOCSIS 3.1 basics
  • The advantage of the R-PHY DAA architecture
  • Best practices for testing
