Cable operators are evolving to address the changing business environment and increasing demands for network services. The challenges they encounter include:
The Cisco vision for transforming cable access addresses these needs and more. Additionally, it can help you take full advantage of your current investments, and change your infrastructure to accommodate growth.
Cisco cable access solutions include products that help cable operators:
Cisco cable access solutions bring together technologies for modernizing access networks. This helps you cut costs, simplify management, rapidly deploy services, and boost revenue.
Cisco cable access products take full advantage of SDN and NFV technologies to:
Integrate multiple functions into one DOCSIS platform. Deliver distributed CCAP, full spectrum video convergence, and SDN.
Broadband video network operators can easily scale services to meet customer demand, and generate more bandwidth as the need for new services increases.
Cisco Services offers full capabilities and resources to support your CCAP network, as well as your entire network. You will work directly with Cisco professionals certified in a broad range of Cisco products, service provider architectures, and advanced technologies.

Depending on your existing network architecture, network, and service plans, Cisco has a solution ideally suited for you.
Cisco’s cBR-8 Converged Broadband Router is the industry's first Evolved CCAP that helps cable operators to compete in billboard data rates. Its multigigabit broadband services can offer revenue-generating Internet-of-Everything (IoE) services to subscribers at a lower TCO over the next five years.
The cBR-8 is the first integrated CCAP product designed for DOCSIS 3.1. Our full-spectrum platform can converge: all services, including DOCSIS data services and MPEG video services, into a single chassis.
This all-service convergence functionality can reduce on-going OpEx for rack space and power at the service provider's headend, and meet the service group growth demand.
The cBR-8 is also designed to support distributed CCAP architecture (DCA) with Cisco Remote PHY technology. This can help cable providers increase service revenues with an increased number of service groups and more bits per Hertz for the network. It can also reduce OpEx by supporting one access network for both residential and business services.

Today’s consumers have become accustomed to new high-definition channels, streaming video, and a proliferation of connected devices throughout the home. As a result, your customers demand more capacity and performance than ever before from your hybrid fiber-coaxial (HFC) access network. And that demand is only growing.
At the same time, you face competition from all sides. Traditional wireline service providers are telling consumers that their fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) networks can feed their video, voice, and broadband needs better than you can. And new entrants like Google are moving into your market.
To give your customers the experiences they want and expect, you need more from your HFC access network.
Cisco HFC access solutions give you the capacity, performance, and manageability you need to meet sky-high customer expectations and capitalize on the connected home. Cisco offers one of the industry’s broadest portfolios of nodes, amplifiers, taps, and optoelectronics solutions. We can help you:
Over the next decade, DOCSIS 3.1 and the next-generation Converged Cable Access Platform (CCAP) architectures will transform cable access networks. You will be able to consolidate equipment, manage bandwidth more effectively, and significantly increase capacity to deliver exceptional consumer experiences.
The Cisco HFC access portfolio and product roadmap provides everything you need to prepare for new developments in cable access. For example, the Cisco GS7000 Node provides a platform to
Such a layer will be essential to capitalize on DOCSIS 3.1 capacity and efficiency.
By choosing Cisco for your HFC access network today, you can:
Boost your capacity and grow your network with Cisco hybrid fiber-coaxial (HFC) solutions. (2:55 min)
