Manage and Expand HFC Bandwidth
The demand is growing for high-definition (HD) channels, video-on-demand (VoD) content, high-speed data connectivity, and voice services. To remain competitive, you need to extract more capacity and performance from existing hybrid fiber-coaxial (HFC) bandwidth to support emerging, next-generation services.

Meet the Growing Bandwidth Demand

Cisco HFC Access solutions can help you meet the growing demand for bandwidth. These solutions:

  • Manage and expand the productivity of existing bandwidth
  • Support the increase in demand for advanced interactive services and rapid deployment of next-generation services

With the broadest portfolio in the industry, Cisco has the right solution for your network needs. Cisco offers the tools to build an HFC access network architecture that can help you meet today’s increased bandwidth demands. Our broad product portfolio for HFC networks can be adapted to future needs and provides:

  • Lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) per homes passed
  • Increased forward and reverse bandwidth
  • Increased bandwidth per subscriber
  • Improved overall performance from headend to hub
