Cisco to highlight IP networks, Gigabit services and cloud TV

Cisco will use ANGA COM to highlight IP network transformation, Gigabit services, cloud-powered video, service agility and security.

Cisco will use the show to highlight the cBR-8, described by the company as the industry’s first DOCSIS 3.1/CCAP platform, already deployed with 90 operators on three continents.

The platform delivers throughput of 10 Gigabits per second downstream, and 1Gbps upstream.

Cisco will also showcase its remote PHY work to take fibre deeper, with different configurations of shelves and nodes to suit different architectural/topological implementations already in the field. The company has also developed a range of analogue nodes and amplifiers designed for DOCSIS 3.1 upgrades specifically designed for the European market.

Cisco will also highlight its work on cable-specific Software-Defined Networking (SDN) virtualisation and orchestration, including SDN capabilities on the cBR8, to enable service velocity and to simplify operations.

Cisco will also show its Pro-active Network Maintenance (PNM) solution that the company says allows operators to reduce operating expenditure by proactively detecting any network issues within an accuracy of 10 metres..

The company will also demonstrate its Video Quality Monitoring (VQM) solution that continuously monitors the user experience from signal acquisition to playout, to any end device over any network. Cisco has teamed up with Skyline, Mariner and Nimble to build the VQM solution.

To address immersive 4K video and HDR (High Dynamic Range) encoding, orchestration of cloud-based services, and open media distribution for CDNs, the company will showcase its V2P (Virtualized Video Processing) line, which blends Cisco and third party applications across cloud environments.

Cisco will also showcase connected home technologies including its HomeGuard whole-home cyber-security protection.

Cisco’s JT Taylor, senior manager, video marketing, will take part in a panel session at the Congress on June 7 about recommendations and the RDK (Reference Design Kit), while Yves Padrines, VP, global service provider EMEAR, will speak at 10:00 on the June 7 on personalised television. John Downey will speak on a panel about DOCSIS 3.1 on June 8 at 11:30; and Adam Davies, product marketing manager for Cisco’s Infinite Video line, will be speaking on a panel about multi-screen technologies on June 9 at 2:45.

Cisco will exhibit at ANGA COM on Stand H21 in Hall 10.2.
