Ontario Chapter Remote PHY 101 Webinar

February 26, 2019

Remote PHY will significantly change how MSOsdesign and operate their HFC networks. Remote PHY pushes many classic RF andheadend functions to the node at the edge of the network. Video (legacy andIPTV), HFC, Voice and Data are now on one platform, requiring a true CCAPdeployment. The legacy video platforms will need to be modified to supportout-of-band communications to the set-top boxes. Encryption will need to beaddressed to facilitate conditional access. There are also impacts to the HFCoperations with respect to supporting smarter nodes, two-way meters, sweep andother network monitoring systems. This web meeting will discuss what is remotePHY and what is required to deploy it. A vendor agnostic description of thearchitecture in addition to a high-level discussion of the future including theimpact of Full Duplex DOCSIS and Virtual CMTS (vCMTS) will also be included.
