Taking an in-depth look at the company’s virtualization platform for broadband and video service delivery, this May 2020 CommScope report begins with an overview of cable access evolution and distributed access architecture (DAA). DAA seeks to alleviate crowding in headends and hubs by moving some functionality to the edge of the network, typically the access nodes. While that is an important step in modernizing the cable headend, the report notes, to fully unlock the benefits of elasticity and agility, operators need to also migrate over time to a fully virtualized environment in which “the management plane, video plane and data plane are virtualized.” The report will be of interest to engineers, technologists, video services providers, telecom operators, and IT professionals.
