What’s Coming in Field and Operations Technology with Comcast and Cisco

Episode 26 of our show on All Things DOCSIS.  Hosted by Brady Volpe, Founder of The Volpe Firm and Nimble This.  Today we have a fantastic episode for you on Future Field Operations Technologies but first let me introduce our panelists for todays show: With us we have the John Downey, CMTS Technical Leader at Cisco Systems.  Larry Wolcott, Comcast Fellow in Operations Technology.  Finally, a man who needs little introduction, the esteemed Ron Hranac, Technical Leader at Cisco Systems.  Future Field Operations Technologies Cable
