Webcast: Charting Cable’s Course to IPTV
2009-05-20 16:00:00Competitive pressures and changing consumer expectations are spurring cable operators to invest in moving toward IP-based video delivery. In fact, the industry's next generation DOCSIS 3.0 technology provides key features for delivering video. But cable modem termination systems (CMTSs) were never designed to deliver TV programming - and pumping tons of video through them can be a costly proposition. Now new approaches are emerging that off load high-bandwidth video traffic to let cable providers move to IPTV more cost-effectively.
This Webcast will examine:
â€¢ The factors driving cable operators to invest in IP video
â€¢ How IP video services fit into existing network infrastructures
â€¢ How emerging IPTV alternatives for cable compare on cost and scalability
