At Cable-Tec Expo 2018 in Atlanta, the SCTE/ISBE will be hosting a seminar on Distributed Access Architectures (DAA) on Monday, Oct. 22.

A follow-up to last year's Remote PHY seminar, the morning event will address the ability of DAAs and the Headend Rearchitected as a Datacenter (HERD) to drive cost efficiencies, faster time to market and increased customer satisfaction in conjunction with the continued evolution of cable access networks.

The DAA seminar is free to all Full Conference attendees of Cable-Tec Expo 2018. Scheduled presenters include technologists from Cox Communications, Comcast and Denmark's Stofa, as well as from ARRIS, Casa Systems, Harmonic, Intel, MaxLinear, Nokia and Vecima Networks. Additional information is available at https://s19.a2zinc.net/clients/EZSCTE/EX18/Public/SessionDetails.aspx?FromPage=Sessions.aspx&SessionID=302&SessionDateID=8.

The seminar will continue last year's discussion of Remote PHY, but also will include presentations on the role that will be played by Remote MAC PHY and the Flexible MAC Architecture (FMA), which combines Remote MAC+PHY Device (RMD), Remote MAC Core (RMC), Physical MAC Core (pCore) and Virtual MAC Core (vCore). Other topics will include Full Duplex DOCSIS, Extended Spectrum DOCSIS and the initiatives behind a Generic Access Platform.

"Distributed Access Architectures are dramatically transforming the way services are delivered over cable networks," said Jeff Finkelstein, executive director of advanced technology for Cox. "As operators seek new ways to meet customers' need for cleaner, faster bandwidth, the industry is finding an increasing number of ways to move network functionality closer to the consumer and to provide a path for future growth using new physical and MAC layer technologies."

"Last year's Remote PHY event required two overflow rooms and still had a standing-room only crowd, so we're not surprised that seats are moving quickly for DAA," said Chris Bastian, senior vice president, engineering, and CTO for the SCTE/ISBE. "We're looking forward to satisfying the tremendous interest in this topic and have received outstanding tremendous support from our partners at CableLabs and the other members of the committee to ensure that this event optimizes value for attendees."

Expo is scheduled from Oct. 22-25 in Atlanta. Registration is available at http://expo.scte.org/attendee-registration/.
