CommScope is leading the way in the industry’s drive to 10G and virtualization, with its Virtual Headend Portfolio, offering a complete range of solutions for virtualizing the four primary planes of modern operator networks: data, video, control, and management. In addition, CommScope’s Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) demonstrations will show the technology’s ability to unlock the potential of 5G to compete with fixed-line services in urban and sub-urban areas.

CommScope is adding a new range of Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) solutions to its portfolio to address the need for a greater density of more powerful node-based Remote PHY and Remote MACPHY devices. These solutions enable operators like Mediacom, which deployed CommScope’s full end-to-end solution in its 10G trial network, to take the next step in evolving their HFC networks. In particular, the E6000r family of R-PHY Shelf products is making deployment faster and easier—powering the shift towards DAAs and virtualized networks for leading global operators like Norlys(Stofa), Tele Columbus AG and Vidanet.

CommScope’s vision for 10G extends throughout the connected home of the future. Ziply Fiber recently selected CommScope X5 Wi-Fi 6 extenders to enhance its wireless presence in their subscribers’ homes. The company also announced several recent additions to its extensive portfolio of DOCSIS 3.1 and Wi-Fi 6 modems and gateways. At SCTE, CommScope experts will be discussing plans for the recently announced Wi-Fi 6E standard in delivering the next-generation of low-latency, deterministic wireless experiences for video, gaming, augmented and virtual reality, and more.

Today, CommScope’s offers operators a number of ways to extend and maximize their in-home wireless networks. The cloud-based HomeAssure managed Wi-Fi service delivery platform is a leading example. With in-depth data collection and analytics, the platform pro-actively identifies and resolves Wi-Fi issues before they impact customers.

CommScope will be demonstrating two platforms that are evolving the set-top category: streamers, a growing category of video devices designed to meet the needs of service providers to aggregate streaming services as well the capabilities of its Smart Media Device in powering voice-video experiences on the television and enabling new applications in digital health, education, and business.
