To ensure a smooth migration from TDM to all-IP networks and maintain high quality, this North American converged operator wanted a plan that would create readiness across its different organizations, and would stay within schedule and budget.
In considering the user experience MSOs will be expected to provide in the future, content will remain important but the other two winners in this future environment are connectivity and cloud. Jointly these will reduce the complexity that exists in today´s networks and devices and unlock unfulfilled commercialization potential.
By moving to a cable edge cloud architecture and using technologies such as SDN and NFV, operators can create a network that is 100 times more powerful — in terms of higher bandwidth and lower latency — than today.
The next phase in our network evolution will result in a total optimization of the user experience, with the ultimate goal being creation of networks with seemingly infinite capacity. This will affect the entire value chain from content producers through network providers to end device manufacturers.
