MSO (Multiple Systems Operators) and cable providers experience significantly greater growth in their IP traffic. This growth is propelled by the growth in their broadband customer base, the move from classic HFC access networks to Fiber Deep HFC and to FTTx, and the introduction of IP-based linear and on-demand TV services, as an answer to the growing popularity of OTT services.
This calls for a revamp of the MSO IP network infrastructure, a process that calls for a paradigm change in how this network is built.
DriveNets Network Cloud addresses these challenges by building networks like cloud – scalable, elastic, cost-efficient and simple to manage.
Based on a distributed disaggregated chassis architecture, the Network Cloud solutions allows MSOs and cable operators to evolve their core, aggregation and edge network in a converged manner, without the limitations and constraints of past, monolithic architectures.
This architecture, which converges compute and networking resources, also enables MSOs to easily deploy CDN (Content Delivery Network) instances at the edge of their network, without the need for additional resources, hence optimize their move from broadcast linear programming to IP-based, unicast linear and VOD services.
In the shadow of the pandemic and with surging demand for broadband, cloud and OTT services, cable providers are facing...Read more
