Automating Success

Track: Business Services

Service Level Agreements (SLAs) have become a way to ensure that you deliver the reliability, quality, and speed your enterprise customers and carriers are looking for. We’ll explore how automation—specifically workflow automation and defined test standards—drives a more efficient approach, requires a fraction of the resources, and enhances the quality of experience.

Traffic Engineering Optimization I

Track: Evolved Network-Wireline and Wireless

Whether operating on HFC or PON or 5G infrastructures, future operator networks will be required to deliver 1+ Gbps services. These higher-SLA services are not like past services, and many network attributes must be changed to accommodate the new bandwidth levels. This session will explore many of these changes, with a focus on bandwidth consumption trends vs. billboard bandwidth trends, new traffic engineering strategies, minimum bandwidth levels and channel count in DOCSIS® 3.0 and DOCSIS® 3.1, and more.

You’re Stealing My Business!

Track: Security and Authentication

DOCSIS® theft of service is costing operators millions in lost revenue and opex costs. A recent POC effort with a major US operator showed upward of 450,000 rogue devices on the network. Lacking the security features of modern-day set-top boxes, cable modems can be, and are, manipulated. This allows multiple theft of services, as well as content that can be resold on the black market. We'll examine how to detect and prevent theft of services and content.   We discuss how cable operators can ensure that their OTT platforms are not being used against them by commercial content pirates and hackers. And finally, we will explain how the implementation of fingerprinting and watermarking technologies is employed in the identification of specific video assets.
