its leadership in next-generation network technologies, CommScope
today announced three new breakthroughs that dramatically improve network
scale, speed and latency. The advances – in architecture design, interface
speed, and edge performance – create unprecedented choice and control for
broadband network operators. All will become elements of the company’s
Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) and 10G portfolios.
CommScope will discuss and demonstrate the new technologies at the SCTE?ISBE Cable-Tec
Expo beginning September 30th in New Orleans.
important new use cases are relentless about response time. Faster speed plus
lower latency is the new normal,” said Morgan Kurk, executive vice president
and chief technology officer, CommScope. “Three things are required to achieve
this—an end-to-end view of the network; an agnostic approach to technology; and
a distributed architecture that breeds innovation in the core, throughout the
access layer, and at the edge.”

providers delivering the earliest benefits of 10G innovations and at varying
stages of network transformations.

innovations being fielded now are all about anticipating the network of
tomorrow,” said Kurk. “5G especially requires a flexible network,
and open architectures gain new importance when cloud plus edge approaches
become the imperative.”
CommScope will also use the Expo to mark the 10th
anniversary of its first virtualized, cloud-based solution for cable providers.
The company offered its
first managed service in 2006, and its first conventional cloud service in
has been at the leading edge of technology development in media and broadband
networks for more than 20 years. It disclosed its foundational
work in 10G earlier this year, and announced a
breakthrough, 8.5 Gbps network trial with Virgin Media in Europe
shortly thereafter. ?
Raising the Performance Bar from Core
will detail technology breakthroughs next week that improve performance at the
core, throughout the access layer, and at the edge:
- DAA Aggregator – This massively scalable new
architecture extends fiber deeper into the network, lowers total cost of
ownership, and requires relatively minor changes to existing fiber deep
networks. The change significantly increases the number of homes passed per RPD
serving group – from 20 to 40 to between 150 to 300 – enabling deeper reach
into neighborhoods and a
simplified path to network upgrades.
- Extended Soft FDD – This new combination of
software-only Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) and Extended Spectrum DOCSIS?
(ESD) – pushes network interface speeds beyond 1.2 GHz and is already being
hailed as a preliminary flavor of DOCSIS 4.0. The advance comes just
four months after the company first demonstrated soft FDD.
new DOCSIS timing protocol – Precise
timing distribution over the DOCSIS network is now possible. Such precision is
imperative for time-critical processing and applications, where a fraction of a
second means the difference between success and failure. Current and future
applications include mobile backhaul, virtual reality, and autonomous vehicle
longer enough to have the fastest network,” said Tom Cloonan, CommScope chief
technologist for network solutions in the company’s Office of the CTO. “2020 is
about efficiency and simplicity. There will be significant changes to
architectures over time, and it’s important to work with a company that has
both industry-leading technology and the expertise to execute at any point in
its industry leadership role by introducing new solutions that address the
needs of cable operators as they modernize their networks,” said Liliane
Offredo-Zreik of ACG Research. “CommScope has the most comprehensive portfolio
that meets the evolving and increasingly divergent needs of the cable

also today revealed European and U.S. network-transformation projects currently
underway, including its role as a foundation of Europe’s first eight Gigabit Cities with Liberty Global in
Southampton (England), Utrecht (Netherlands), Warsaw (Poland), and Bochum,
Dusseldorf, Cologne, Frankfurt, and Mannheim (Germany). The European projects
build on CommScope’s regional momentum, including groundbreaking Remote PHY

end, the company also announced it anchors a forthcoming fiber-to-the-home conversion through which municipal network
innovator Wyandotte Municipal
Services/Wyandotte Cable (Wyandotte, Michigan) will offer smart home
applications. Wyandotte’s aggressive and innovative plan for full conversion to
fiber-to-the-home relied on CommScope’s advisory services to identify its
strategic opportunity, assess the various technology and architecture options,
and ultimately design its path forward. The final end-to-end plan included
relocating and expanding their headend. The advanced edge performance also lays
the groundwork for wireless integration.
