SCTE•ISBE LiveLearning Webinars™ 2018 Schedule
January: Fiber Deep Networks
The drive to provide more bandwidth to homes and businesses is leading to
greater deployments of fiber. This webinar will review best practices that
ensure economy and efficiency now and the ability to expand in the future.
February: Next-Generation PON Options
New standards for both EPON and GPON promise greater capacity and
multiwavelength capabilities. This webcast will review these evolving
standards, what technology is available now, and what will be available in
the near future.
March: Distributed Access Architecture
Interest in Distributed Access Architecture continues to grow among
operators looking for more efficient, less power-hungry networks. Attendees
will learn about why Distributed Access Architectures can improve network
efficiency. They’ll also learn the differences between Remote PHY and
Remote MAC-PHY, the two main options.
April: Testing and Measuring Optics
The growing interest in fiber deep deployments has put new emphasis on the
ability of technicians to quickly and accurately measure fiber-optic
networks. This webinar highlights what technicians need to know as well as
how to ensure accurate, efficient optical network measurements.
May: 4K/HDR/UHD Video Delivery
Is your network ready for the next generation of video? Find out in this
webinar, which will examine the current status of next generation video
formats and the demands they will place on cable operator networks.
June: What's Next for DOCSIS?
With DOCSIS 3.1 in the deployment stage and the first specifications for
Full Duplex DOCSIS 3.1 approved, what else is there to know about DOCSIS?
Well, you’ll find out if you attend this webinar, which will examine the
current state of these two DOCSIS technologies as well as where things may
head in the future.
July: Wireless Networks at the Premises
Delivering gigabit to the premises is only part of the challenge. Ensuring
customers can fully access that capacity is a major component – and that
component is now usually wireless. This webinar examines the latest
generation of wireless technology and how to ensure proper deployment.
Software Defined Cable Access Networks
The industry has discussed software-defined networking (SDN) and
virtualization for some time. But the advent of Distributed Access
Architecture has opened the door for such discussions to evolve toward
reality. This webinar examines how software-defined access capabilities
could benefit cable operators; our speakers will suggest strategies as well
that can help operators begin to apply such capabilities in their networks.
September: Premises Installation Best Practices
You want to get it right at the customer site. The speakers on this webcast
show you how, regardless of the media in use.
October: Mid-Split Networks
Interest in mid-split as an option for growing upstream bandwidth continues
to grow. This webinar describes the mid-split approach and its
effectiveness in enabling broadband services that are more symmetrical.
November: Taking the Service Experience to the Cloud
Operators have had success with such services as cloud-based DVR. Now
they’re examining what else would make sense to move to the cloud. This
webinar examines the options and will help you plot your cloud-migration
December: Improving Business Services
Business services offer a lucrative opportunity for cable operators,
particularly as they add capacity to their networks. The speakers in this
webinar will describe the current business services landscape and offer
suggestions about how to win more customers – and larger ones.
