Now that cable operators are fully embracing IP video, the big question is how they will make the transition to full IP delivery of their video services over the next few years. Perhaps most importantly, MSOs must figure out how to carry out this tricky transition without overwhelming their already strained HFC networks.
In this Webinar, you will learn:
- When cable operators will start running IP video simulcasts
- How much extra bandwidth these IP video simulcasts will consume
- How MSOs intend to leverage the cloud to deliver more IP-enabled video services
- What new tools cable operators will need to carry out the transition
- What new devices and/or software will be needed in the home
- How cable operators plan to distribute IP video signals around the home
We will tackle these “smaller” questions and numerous others because they will help determine the answer to the big question. As always, the devil is in the details. Tune in on Dec. 10th to find out more.
