Cable TV Operators Struggle to Increase the Amount of IP Video they Can Provide to Subscribers, Says MRG
10 Apr 2013 • by Natalie Aster
In the increasingly competitive global pay-TV industry, cable TV operators are searching for ways to increase the amount of IP video they can provide to their subscribers. One way to accomplish this goal is to upgrade existing equipment in the cable headend with Converged Cable Access Platform (CCAP)-capable products.
According to the report “CCAP: A Big Step along the Path to IP Video” by MRG Multimedia Research Group (MRG), CCAP products are designed to integrate the functions of the Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS) and the Edge QAM device. In addition to increasing a cable TV system’s capacity to support DOCSIS-based IP video, CCAP effectively combines the two components into a single architecture with increased QAM density and overall capacity.
