Presented by John Downey of Cisco and Brady Volpe of The Volpe Firm. Part two we will cover how pre-equalization data can be used to identify upstream impairments through Proactive Network Maintenance (PNM) and why this is valable to a cable operator. Join us Friday May 2nd at 2:00 pm Eastern Standard time. Follow us on our VolpeFirm Google+ page to ensure that you can view the event.
Proactive Network Maintenance (PNM) in combination with DOCSIS pre-equalization are game changing technologies for the cable industry. PNM started as a technology research project at CableLabs and has now gone into full production in some large (and small) MSOs and cable operators systems. The results have been startling on the reduction of repeat CSR calls and ability to identify plant impairments.
