SLAs are shrinking, creating major challenges for IT in providing services like DR without additional budget. To solve this problem, cloud platforms like Microsoft Azure are becoming the de facto infrastructure choice for DR. To make this work, cross-platform workload portability is a must. Azure provides the infrastructure we need to bring DR to tier 2 and tier 3 workloads that have never been able to afford it before. In this session, we look at methods to leverage on-prem physical or VM backup to Blob Storage for cost-effective disaster recovery; reduce costs by eliminating always-on cloud instances (needed for many backup tools); methods to protect workloads running in Azure VMs; and how to tie them all together.

SCTE LiveLearning for Professionals Webinar Series: DAA Duo: Flexing Both MAC and PHY

March 17, 2022 | 11:00 AM ET

Following years of trials and tribulations, cable operators and vendors are increasingly rolling out distributed access architecture (DAA) technology to shift key functions and equipment from the cable headend to the HFC access network, thereby expanding the network's capacity to deliver new, more advanced services and operate more efficiently and effectively. Now, thanks to CableLabs' new Flexible MAC Architecture (FMA) spec, industry technologists can freely choose among Remote PHY, Remote MAC/PHY, virtual CMTS and other DAA variants to meet their customer needs.

SCTE LiveLearning for Professionals Webinar Series: Converging Wireline and Wireless Networks

October 20, 2022 | 11:00 AM ET

With the help of 5G mobile technology, fixed-wireless access (FWA) is rapidly emerging as a promising new platform for delivering broadband service to areas that can't be reached cost-effectively by copper, coax or fiber, as well as providing the backbone for 5G service. But combining wired and wireless networks and stacks to achieve true fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) is much more easily said than done.

SCTE LiveLearning for Professionals Webinar Series: Prepping Cable's Networks for 10G

July 21, 2022 | 11:00 AM ET

Facing the prospect of competition from 5G-enabled broadband services, the cable industry is ardently pursuing an ambitious 10G (as in 10 Gbps) initiative to develop its multi-gigabit broadband prowess over a mix of HFC, fiber and wireless networks. But, even with the release of CableLabs' new DOCSIS 4.0 spec last year, it's not clear that the industry is ready to make that next great leap to symmetrical 10 Gbps service.

Pumping the Power of PON and Fiber

June 16, 2022 | 11:00 AM ET

Although DOCSIS still has plenty of fuel left in the tank, PON has clearly emerged as a critical alternative transmission method for the cable industry as operators increasingly install more fiber lines in their HFC plant. Whether they are leveraging EPON, GPON, 10G EPON, XGS PON or some other PON flavor, cablecos and vendors are increasingly deploying some version of PON technology over fiber to expand their bandwidth capacity.
