New Technology for Cable Operators to Consider
This blog examines some key decision points the cable industry needs to consider when planning the next generation of a Modern Cable Network. Computation has quickly become part of network infrastructure itself, beyond just supporting services, over-the-top applications, and management tasks. At the same time, advancements in silicon and optical technology allow for a re-examination of cable network topology and service placement.
A Survey of Grants and Funding for Broadband Expansion
The digital divide has been closing over the past decade, with help from a range of federal funding programs aimed at extending broadband services to underserved areas of the country. Before you start thinking about how much funding you want or where to go to find it, it’ll help to consider how and where you want to expand broadband services and what these services will enable your customer and stakeholders to do. Then you can start looking into the funding opportunities that can help make those more concrete plans a reality.
Avoid the Margin Crunch with Proactive, Effective Network Automation
Network economics are changing. Consumers and enterprises use more data every day, driving down the price for data services through competition and commoditization.

It’s All in the Cloud: AT&T Builds off Cisco’s Secure SD-WAN Solution
Enterprise applications are quickly moving away from the data center and into the cloud. As service providers come to see this as a seismic technology shift rather than just a blip on the radar, they’re wondering how to deploy applications faster and easier while keeping them secure. AT&T recently developed a managed service offing based on our secure virtualized Software Defined–Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) solution. Secure SD-WAN makes the management and operation of a WAN much simpler. It decouples networking hardware from its control mechanism using virtualization technology, allowing companies to build better performing and secure WANs.
