Drill Here Emerging MSO Technology: Systemic Prioritization of Undetected Service Outages to Improve Overall Business Performance

While cable television Multiple System Operators (Cable MSOs) have alerting mechanisms and are equipped to deal with "right now, hard down" critical outages, oftentimes smaller and intermittent outages are much harder to detect and can be altogether missed for extended periods of time. But customers notice these intermittent outages - especially business customers - and some of these intermittent outages are the precursors of much larger outages. The good news is there are clues that can clearly point operations teams to concentrations of outage risk. The bad news is these clues are too often imprisoned in disparate databases. A solution is found by carefully classifying, scoring and combining maintenance activities, telephone calls from troubled subscribers, truck rolls and network telemetry - resulting in timely identification of otherwise undetected outages.
