Delivering PON Fiber and DOCSIS on a Converged Broadband Platform

Presented by

Jeff Heynen at Dell’Oro, De Fu Li at Comcast, Asaf Matatyaou at Harmonic, and Thuy Nguyen at Intel

About this talk

Broadband service is essential. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the USA recently redefined broadband service as 100Mbps downstream and 20Mbps upstream to ensure that all Americans have access to adequate connectivity. Government subsidies available in the US (BEAD) and around the globe are attracting new fiber overbuilders, as well as enticing existing broadband providers, to upgrade networks to meet the new definitions. Many network operators agree that fiber-to-the-premise is the end goal for their access network evolution. Some operators will maximize the utility of their existing DOCSIS networks for many years to come. While others in highly competitive markets will offer PON fiber services sooner. In the next several years, cable MSOs have robust options for delivering multi-gigabit broadband service using virtualized platforms to deliver both DOCSIS and Fiber concurrently in their networks. This panel will feature discussions with market leaders Comcast, Harmonic, Dell’Oro, and Intel to touch on topics such as the technical feasibility of converging next generation DOCSIS and PON delivery platforms, the operational benefits of convergence, and market trends for broadband access. Moderator - Jeff Heynen, VP, Broadband Access and Home Networking at Dell’Oro Panelists: - De Fu Li, Distinguished Engineer at Comcast - Asaf Matatyaou, SVP, Product Management at Harmonic - Thuy Nguyen, Head of Cable Segment at Intel
