SCTE Cable – Tec Expo

Join Cisco at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo


As the video landscape evolves, cable providers like you face new challenges. To compete in today's marketplace, you need to offer multiscreen video services with unique, engaging experiences around that content, while monetizing it in new ways.

Come visit Cisco Booth 1355 to learn how Cisco can help you deliver new video experiences that are personalized, synchronized, and social - at the speed of now. Through our speaking sessions and demonstrations, you'll learn how the interworkings of cloud, network, and client architectures can result in immersive end-user experiences, while transforming the cost structure of network operations.

Learn more about how Cisco Videoscape Unity lets you introduce a new generation of multiscreen video experiences that are:

  • Synchronized, as you can push contextual content and targeted ads related to TV programming to companion devices in real time
  • Personalized, making it easy for viewers to find content they want, based on their social connections, analytics, and user profiles
  • Social, with networks that bring people together and deepen engagement through virtual viewing parties, real-time IM, and more

Cisco Videoscape Unity: Connecting Experiences Your Way.

We look forward to seeing you at SCTE 2013.

Cisco Panel Speaking Sessions


Implementing End-to-End IP Video Solutions

IP video is here to stay. Multisystem operators (MSOs) are already deploying IP video services for video on demand (VoD) and Live (Linear) content to subscriber hand-held devices and tablets. So what's next?

More IP video content. Cloud delivery. Techniques to improve network use. Converged Cable Access Platform (CCAP) transport of IP video. Changing from conditional access systems (CAS) to digital rights management (DRM). And multicasting. These are just a few of the technologies that will be explored within this session.

You'll also learn about the implications of a switch from MSO-managed quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM)-based video delivery to MSO-managed IP video delivery. Transition strategies will also be analyzed.

Moderator: Tom Cloonan, CTO, Networks Solutions, ARRIS
Cisco Speaker: John Horrobin, Manager
Cisco Presentation: Pioneering IP Video in Cable Networks
Date and Time: Monday, October 21, 1:15 - 2:30 p.m. and Thursday, October 24, 2:30 - 3:45 p.m.

 

Finding the Silver Lining in Cloud-Based DVR

Network DVR a.k.a. cloud DVR has had its ups and downs in the news and in the courtrooms. But there are clear advantages to the approach for both conventional DVR functionality, as well as Time-Shifted TV (TSTV). But the big question always comes back to the economics. Come to this session to hear the latest thinking on the trade-off between storage and transport, and how the latest software technologies and cloud-based abstractions of underlying resources enable operators to launch new DVR and TSTV services without major upfront investments. We'll also explore the impact from offering new cloud DVR services for multi-screen devices, breaking the barrier of only recording two shows at a time; and extending content storage in the cloud. The silver lining we'll cover is the additional income opportunities and efficiencies that result.

Moderator: John M. Civiletto, Vice President, Strategic Architecture, Cox Communications, Inc.
Cisco Speaker: David Lively, Director, Cloud / SDN Incubation Team, Cisco Systems, Inc.
Cisco Presentation: Infrastructure Considerations for Cloud DVR
Date and Time: Monday, Oct. 21 2:45 - 4:00 p.m. and Thurs., Oct. 24 at 2:30 - 3:45 p.m.

 

Trim the Network Fat - A Healthy Recipe for Understanding and Improving Your Cable Ecosystem

There's more to cable than just the physical layer of the cable network. As we look for ways to optimize the cable ecosystem, we're considering new and innovative ways to take full advantage of higher layer technology.

Moderator: Matt Hayes, Executive Director, Engineering, Cox Communications
Cisco Speaker: Jay Herbert, Systems Engineer
Cisco Presentation: Routing the Cable Network: Unicast, Multicast and MPLS Protocols
Date and Time: Wednesday, Oct. 23, 9:30 - 10:45 a.m. and Thursday, October 24, 4:00 - 5:15 p.m.

 

IPv6 Is Here, Where Are You?

The transition to IPv6 is challenging enough. But with such a diversity of equipment, features, and solutions, deploying IPv6 in a highly secure manner while keeping customers satisfied can be even more problematic.

Moderator: David Ririe, Director, Access Engineering, Cox Communications
Cisco Speaker: Jeff Riddel, Cable Architect
Cisco Presentation: IPv6 Deployment Best Practices
Date and Time: Wednesday, Oct. 23, 11:00 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. and Thursday, Oct. 24, 4:00 - 5:15 p.m.

 

Remote PHY: Close to Our Heart

The Remote physical sublayer (PHY) is an important network element in the continued evolution of DOCSIS and our hybrid fiber coaxial (HFC) plant. This session will focus on new technology developments in this area. Our speakers will examine field and operational issues.

Moderator: Tony Faccia, Vice President, Wireline Access Networks, Rogers Communications
Cisco Speaker: John Chapman, CTO Cable Access Business Unit
Cisco Presentation: DOCSIS Remote PHY (MHAv2)
Date and Time: Thursday, Oct. 24 1:00 - 2:15 p.m. and Thursday, Oct. 24, 2:30 - 3:45 p.m.

 

The Future of Advanced Monitoring

How do you monitor a DOCSIS 3.1 Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) signal to the home when it has more than one order of Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) in it? What new software applications will allow us to incorporate modern monitoring and proactive network maintenance practices of today?

Cisco Speaker: Ron Hranac, Technical Leader
Cisco Presentation: UHF Signal Leakage and Ingress: Understanding the Liability and Risk

DOCSIS 3.1 Engineering Pre-Conference Symposium

Downstream Convergence Layer Overview

This session will discuss how data from the MAC layer will get onto the PHY. Most importantly, it will cover the topic of downstream profiles, why they're important, how they work, and how delay has been constrained. Also included will be information about how this is all signaled to the modem, profile pointers, and other downstream convergence details.

Cisco Speaker: John T. Chapman, CTO, Cable Access Business Unit and Cisco Fellow
