HFC Continues to Deliver

Real World HFC Plant Migration to 1.8 GHz      

  • Examining developments in HFC architectures encompassing nodes with amplifier cascade depths of 5 amplifiers higher
  • Developing detailed models to aid in predicting performance within these cascades
  • Exploring the results from field testing conducted with DOCSIS 4.0 downstream RF signals between 804 and 1764

HFC -The Gift That Keeps On Giving?    

  • Determining the extent to which the hybrid fiber-coax (HFC) platform can still address future services and demands
  • Assessing HFC evolution opportunities, meeting the challenges and developing tools and methodologies in a practical and cost-effective manner
  • Reducing implementation costs of fiber deeper and N+0 topologies while simplifying operations
  • Understanding the architectural implications including the hybrid success-based FTTH-HFC evolution strategy

Harmonizing FDX and FDD to Minimize ACI Impacts in 10G Networks        

  • Examining the standards-based features necessary to minimize the increasing impact of adjacent channel interference (ACI) for the future 10G networks
  • Reviewing current ACI research and adding new data to provide a comprehensive overview of ACI as it applies to both frequency division duplex (FDD) and full duplex DOCSIS (FDX) networks
  • Offering recommendations for the minimization of ACI in the future 10G networks with a focus on FDD access networks
