Cisco cBR-8 Rises up to the DOCSIS 3.1 Challenge

Guest Blog by Igor Dayen, SP Product and Solutions Marketing

What do we need to know about New Orleans? It offers great Jazz, and Bourbon Street provides rich insight into New Orleans’ past, but we can’t overlook that it has been home this year to SCTE Cable-Tec Expo. SCTE is the cable telecommunications engineering show of the year. Nearly 10,000 attendees annually seize the opportunity to discover and learn first-hand about the latest in cable telecommunications technology, products and services. For more than 30 years the industry has relied on Cable-Tec Expo to provide the most energizing, technical knowledge exchange of the year.

New Orleans Convention Center opened its doors to the biggest cable show of the year.
