Cisco Booth Demonstrations


Visit Cisco in Booth Number 2034, to see the following solution demonstrations:

Videoscape Experience

Videoscape is a new cloud-centric video and services platform from Cisco that helps service providers deliver the next generation of TV entertainment.

The Cisco Videoscape demo at SCTE will show how content can be delivered free from the traditional bounds of time, place, and platform. You can bring it to viewers anytime, anywhere, over any screen. The platform offers the high-quality experience consumers expect, delivered safely, and giving you new opportunities to make money.

Cisco representatives will demonstrate integration of linear, on-demand, and over-the-top content with the Videoscape Control Suite. This full lifecycle content management system for managed and unmanaged devices includes:

  • Cisco set-top boxes (STBs)
  • Cisco soft clients (PCs)
  • Internet TVs
  • tablets and smart phone
  • the second-screen experiences those unmanaged devices provide

Demonstrations will also showcase media distribution within and outside of the home with:

  • Videoscape Media Gateway family of products
  • Videoscape Conductor, a standards-based real-time network and device management tool for service providers

Videoscape Cloud

Incorporating scalable computing resources, storage, and virtualization, Cisco will demonstrate Videoscape Quickstart, a comprehensive end-to-end solution for video delivery. The demonstration will focus on the complex logistics required for "TV Everywhere." That includes content ingest, transformation, delivery, and monetization as applied within the Videoscape Architectural Platform for Content and Service Providers.


Video-over-DOCSIS 3.0

Cisco will demonstrate how the Cisco Video-over-DOCSIS 3.0 solution (RF Gateway Series, Cable Modem Termination Systems -CMTS) can provide various levels of Quality of Service (QoS) for Adaptive Bitrate (ABR) video delivery based on the cable operator's service policies.

The Cisco Video-over-DOCSIS 3.0 solution is purpose-built to deliver managed IP video services with guaranteed QoS. It helps cable operators dynamically allocate their DOCSIS network resources based on their unique service policies in order to optimize the quality of experience for their subscribers.


Converged Cable Access Platform - CCAP in Action

Cisco will demonstrate the Converged Cable Access Platform (CCAP) solutions - both modular and integrated versions. These solutions can help customers reduce rack space and power by 35 percent. By taking full advantage of existing CMTS and Cisco uBR10012 Universal Broadband Router equipment, you can meet the bandwidth demand by doubling the capacity.
