Beyond the Cable: The Move to Mobility by MSOs

Date: Now available On-Demand  |  Duration: 1 hour

The best immediate prospects for multiple service operators (MSOs) may lie on an entirely different avenue, using Wi-Fi to harvest data from mobile operators for backhaul over MSO hybrid fiber coax (HFC) networks.

Wi-Fi networks provide a huge differentiation and opportunities for cable operators - allowing them to quickly extend their service footprint, defend against the dreaded cord cutting, reduce subscriber churn and wholesaling capacity. The economics and architecture behind this opportunity have become paramount to MSO’s worldwide.

This webinar will detail how MSOs are integrating Wi-Fi into their existing network architectures, identify the technology challenges in offering wireless services and examine the economics behind Wi-Fi for cable operators.
