Cable Congress 2015 Video Interviews – Steve McCaffery and Cornel Ciocirlan, Arris

WiFi is making the home truly connected and operators need the industry to come together to provide an intuitive user experience, according to Steve McCaffery, SVP, EMEA, Arris. Meanwhile, cable operators are investing in network connectivity and connected home technology.

Specific technologies such as DOCSIS 3.1 can help cable compete with fibre well into the century, according to Cornel Ciocirlan, CTO, EMEA, Arris, with large scale deployments expected in 2016. A network upgrade to 1.2GHz will take time meanwhile, but can be carefully targeted, he says, while the RDK platform can help cable deliver a range of new services in the Internet of Things age.
