New solutions, such as DOCSIS 3.0 channel bonding and node splitting, offer cable operators the scalability and flexibility necessary to satisfy increasing user capacity demands. As the requirement to provide differentiated services to specific customer clusters increases, there is also a growing need for signal insertion to smaller and smaller groups or even individual nodes.
Developed to improve the operation of converged services, the Converged Cable Access Platform (CCAP) standard demands higher technical specifications for narrow cast insertion and combining solutions. This presentation explores how next generation head-ends can manage RF signals while fulfilling the CCAP isolation demands.
