SCTE® LiveLearning for Professionals Webinar™ Series: Fiddling with Fixed Wireless

Date: Thursday, March 21, 2024, 11:00 a.m. New York / 4:00 p.m. London

Register for the March 2024 LiveLearning

As cable operators and rival providers gear up to deploy DOCSIS 4.0 and next-gen PON over their wireline networks, fixed-wireless access (FWA) is swiftly emerging as a major new platform for delivering broadband service to rural, exurban and other markets that can’t be reached cost-effectively any other way. In particular, small and midsized cablecos are increasingly rolling out FWA in their regions.

But deploying FWA is much easier said than done because of geographical, spectrum, technical, regulatory, cost and other knotty obstacles. When does it pay for cablecos to go the FWA route? What conditions are the most favorable? What obstacles must be overcome? In this session, leading industry technologists will assess the pros and cons of FWA.

SCTE® LiveLearning for Professionals Webinar™ Series: Cable and 5G: The Odd Couple?

Date: Thursday, April 18, 2024, 11:00 a.m. New York / 4:00 p.m. London

Register for the April 2024 LiveLearning

As cable operators plunge deeper into the mobile space, they are increasingly rolling out 5G networks to supplement their other broadband services. Some cablecos are leveraging 5G for mobile offload while others are creating private 5G networks for larger commercial customers. As a result, they are deploying 5G small cells on their HFC network strands and integrating the cells with DOCSIS technology.

What are the most promising benefits of 5G for cable? How can operators leverage DOCSIS for 5G networks? What are the biggest technical and operational challenges to overcome? This webinar will address the integration issues of mixing and matching DOCSIS and 5G.
