The 2050 Project Survey Results & Analysis – 2024 Edition


April 25, 2024 @ 11AM EDT

Charting the HFC Network Evolution

CableLabs has discovered that by pairing DOCSIS 3.1 CMTSs with DOCSIS 4.0-capable modems, both of which are capable of handling four ODFM channels, MSOs can significantly increase downstream speed and capacity—by nearly 4Gbps—without needing to upgrade networks to 1.8GHz.
Please select the response below that best matches the impact the availability of this option could have on your plans to fully move to DOCSIS 4.0.

Close to half (42%) of the cable professionals participating in the 2024 edition of ATX’s 2050 Project Survey say the recent introduction of technology that extends the downstream capacity of DOCSIS 3.1 architectures has prompted them to reevaluate their DOCSIS 4.0 adoption plans and timetables.

That’s just one of more than 30 findings from the soon-to-be published results of the company’s fourth annual HFC evolution survey. ATX will be previewing the report’s results, along with expert commentary from outside plant expert and ATX CTO Jay Lee, in an upcoming webinar. The webinar will cover a range of topics and strategies revealing MSOs’ most recent roadmaps for upgrading their networks, fending off competition and other issues impacting their ability to maintain broadband leadership.

Register for the 45-minute webcast to gain insight into what nearly 150 of your peers are thinking when it comes to optimizing DOCSIS 3.1, the adoption of DOCSIS 4.0, upstream band splits, energy storage, the eventual migration of their networks to all fiber and more.

Webinar attendees will:

  • Be among the first to see how cable operators’ attitudes and perceptions about the evolution of their HFC networks have changed over the past few years
  • Absorb expert analysis of what survey results might say about the current state of the HFC evolution and how it could potentially progress into the future
  • Gain insight into what your peers are contemplating about the lifespan of their HFC networks and how far they plan to take future frequency upgrades
  • Delve into issues related to the timing of DOCSIS 4.0 adoption, spectrum allocation, network intelligence and DAA rollouts
