Up until a few years ago, managing an IT infrastructure involved gaining visibility into the availability, performance and utilization of each and every tier of the infrastructure, correlating the performance of the different tiers and identifying where potential performance bottlenecks lie. As IT applications have been increasingly used to support online businesses, there is an increasing realization that application performance is more important than that of the infrastructure. Ensuring that a server’s CPU utilization is normal is not a guarantee that users are happy with the performance of the application. Application performance management (APM) is the area of IT performance management that focuses on applications and their performance.

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: 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.

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.

SCTE LiveLearning for Professionals Webinar Series: Lowering Latency Levels

November 17, 2022 | 11:00 AM ET

With work-from-home collaboration tools emerging as critical during the pandemic and consumers increasingly using bandwidth-eating applications like video conferencing and multi-player online gaming, cable operators and vendors are looking to lower network latency levels to improve the quality-of-experience (QoE) for subscribers. As a result, cable technologists are now working hard on ways to do just that.
