SCTE® LiveLearning for Professionals Webinar™ Series: Deploying DOCSIS 4.0

Date: Thursday, June 20, 2024, 11:00 a.m. New York / 4:00 p.m. London

Register here for the June SCTE LiveLearning

Now that the much-anticipated DOCSIS 4.0 era has begun, several major cable operators are starting to roll out service in their initial regions. At the same time, key technology suppliers are starting to roll out all the equipment necessary to support the new spec in the field. And cable subscribers are starting to sign up for the faster speeds, greater bandwidth, lower latency levels and other benefits that D4.0 has to offer.

Where are the initial rollouts taking place? How are subscribers responding? What are operators and their vendor partners learning from these early deployments? What obstacles are they encountering? How are they working to overcome those hurdles? This webinar will delve into the D4.0 deployment details.

SCTE® LiveLearning for Professionals Webinar™ Series: Boosting the Upstream

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

After decades of focusing mainly on expanding their downstream spectrum, cable operators are now seeking to expand their upstream capacity, thanks largely to changes wrought by the COVID-19 pandemic. With heavier loads on their networks from video conferencing, online gaming, work-from-home and other bandwidth-intensive applications, operators are pursuing both short and long-term strategies to boost their upstream capacity. These measures inclide deploying lower-gain amplifiers, executing mid-splits and high-splits, and extending plant spectrum to 1.8 GHz and possibly beyond.

How are cablecos carrying out these moves? What’s working and what isn’t? Which spectrum expansion options are proving to be most promising? What are the biggest hurdles to overcome? In this webinar, we will explore the upstream expansion options.
