What’s the opportunity for Service Providers?

The service provider space is changing fast. The days of having a ‘Captured audience’ and a ‘Walled garden’ are over. The Cable industry is in stress, new competitors, global and local are stepping in, lowering margins and shrinking the install base. Biggest challenges are the high operational costs and low flexibility to grow their services portfolio. Their legacy infrastructure, as extensive and robust as it is, is failing to scale, hard to maintain, cost too much and blocking them from protecting not to say growing their business.

However, service providers are in unique position. They own a true asset: a very intensive network, robust and dense, with the lower ‘Cost-per-bit’ in the industry.

How can Service Providers Unlock the Potential of Business Transformation?

The opportunity for service providers is right there but in order to achieve and maintain their competitive advantage they would need to:

  • Reinvent the Cable Network to reduce OPEX, control and save CAPEX, gain Velocity and Agility
  • Better monetize the pipe to protect footprint, win new segments, offer new services, get better network economics
  • Secure the cable Network to avoid risk to the continuity of the business, monetize content to its full
  • Leverage mobile opportunity to provide mobile service using their own infrastructure; wholesale backhaul capacity
  • Automate your Cable network to migrate seamlessly, improve efficiencies, reduce downtimes.

How Cisco can help

Cisco’s cable access solution provides cable operators with a platform for business transformation. The most scalable CMTS platform in the industry, it enables multigigabit broadband services at a much lower TCO.

Remote PHY technology allows you to delivers fiber-level capacity and service tiers, without the radical physical replacement of your existing HFC plant. And new access technologies support a fully virtualized, orchestrated, and cloud-scale operating model. Together, these products and technologies provide the cloud-scale flexibility and economics you need to differentiate and grow your business, allowing you to deliver any service, anywhere, quickly and automatically.
