Let’s start off the power hour of cable with a question from a listener:
Stuart asks - "What are some of the benefits to moving all-IP to the fiber node with R-PHY other than reduced size in headend, reduced cooling and power needs, and shortening the distance? Does that mean CCAP architectures will have to be evolved to a DAA?"
