A year ago, SK Broadband announced the world’s first 10 Gbps Internet service at the 2014 ITU Plenipotentiary Conference. This innovative new service was 100 times faster than existing services, which routinely deliver download speeds of 100 Mbps.
Today SK Broadband continues to break new ground. Just in time for the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2015, SK Broadband announced that they will deploy Cisco’s next-generation converged cable access platform (CCAP) across their national footprint. SK broadband chose Cisco’s cBR-8 as the platform to improve the user experience for their 4.7 M subscribers. In addition to supporting the rollout of multi-gigabit services the Cisco cBR-8 platform is a key part of SK Broadband‘s new network architecture.
As part of Cisco’s Evolved Programmable Network (EPN), the Cisco cBR-8 Read More »

By now, the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo is in full swing, and, as (widely!) expected, the matter of DOCSIS 3.1 — the latest iteration of the Data Over Cable Service Interface Spec — is a front-of-mind topic for pretty much everyone here.
Why: Because it’s the next step, and a major one, for all multichannel video providers needing to stay ahead of the 50+ percent year-over-year growth in broadband consumption. (Which is everyone.) We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again: Nothing, in the history of consumable goods, has g Read More »

It’s Expo Eve down here in New Orleans, where the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center will soon fill with the technology people of the cable and broadband industry. Us included!
We’ve been planning for months for this year’s SCTE Cable-Tec Expo, and are appreciably stocked (I hope!) with all of the elements that multichannel video providers (MVPDs) need to satiate their capacity needs — and contribute to the industry’s overall industrial momentum.
If you’re not going, or not familiar with the cable/broadband industry’s biggest and most hard-core tech event — the short hand is that it’s all about Read More »

Service Providers seeking to reduce operating expenses, deliver new services rapidly, are looking to SDN (Software Defined Networking) and virtualization technologies. Earlier this year, Light Reading and EANTC published an evaluation of Cisco’s virtualization and cloud solution, including multivendor network orchestration and optimization. They’ve now published a follow-on, that takes a closer look at the data center, specifically the Network Function Virtualization infrastructure (NFVI).
