The CED is presenting an Educational Webinar on the ever increasing traffic on the upstream. Brady Volpe, as an impartial industry expert, will be discussing the impact of advanced DOCSIS and testing of next generation test equipment in the upstream. He will be sharing his view of the challenges the industry will be facing and the direction of next generation test equipment.
"The biggest strain on cable bandwidth is traffic on the downstream, but the biggest challenge is preparing the back channel for the inevitable explosion in traffic on the upstream.
Cable's upstream is confined to a constricted spectrum range, and it is far more susceptible to noise and other impairments. These issues are solvable, but not without adequate preparation, and that's what this webinar will address.
If an operator wants to offer advanced, symmetrical business services in the shorter term, and more advanced residential services in the slightly longer term, planning for the upstream now is highly recommended.
Operators will need to consider test and measurement techniques, monitoring, and the deployment of upstream bandwidth technology, including channel bonding.
This discussion on prepping the upstream will touch on all three areas, including practical advice derived from upstream channel-bonding field tests.
This webinar will include:
• An introduction to the cable industry's developing roadmap on upstream technology, including the use of new modulation techniques and proposed spectrum splits to allocate more bandwidth.
• Recommendations on what to measure on the upstream, and how.
• Recommendations on how to monitor the upstream (and the downstream, as well).
• A report on field tests of upstream channel bonding, with lessons learned.
REMINDER: Attend this live webinar and pose your critical questions to the panel of experts during the Q&A session at the end of the broadcast.
Please forward this announcement to your colleagues or friends who will benefit from the educational content of this webinar. Your colleagues may register at no charge. " - CED
