Bandwidth Optimization Enhances Your Network
Several factors are causing a bandwidth crunch for cable operators, including:

  • Simulcasts of identical programming in both the analog and digital tiers
  • Growing popularity of and demand for high-definition programming
  • Increase in available channels
  • Deployment of commercial services
  • Greater voice and high-speed data traffic.

Better Position with Bandwidth Optimization
About 40 percent of North American cable systems operate at 870 MHz. These will need to leverage various bandwidth optimization solutions including 1 GHz in order to accommodate the growth in HD and broadband speeds. Systems at 750 MHz, especially those in densely populated areas, can benefit from Cisco bandwidth optimization and enhancement. Systems at 550 MHz definitely need bandwidth optimization.
