The Future of Cable Is Accelerated

Scale at multi-gigabit speed, innovate, and take control with Intel® technology.

Cable subscribers are demanding more bandwidth than ever, and industry needs to keep pace. The challenge is to scale capacity at multi-gigabit speeds and rapidly deploy innovations while managing operating expenses. Intel can help transform your cable networks from cloud to client with a breadth of solutions—from the connected home and access network, to the service provider edge and data center.

The Path to Transformation

As cable subscribers demand more bandwidth, networks demand more flexibility, agility, control, and reliability. To do this, the industry must focus on the following imperatives:

Simplify Networks

Converge on all-IP architecture and align broadband and video infrastructure to create one operational network.

Use Open Platforms

Design with open, standards-based products to tap into best-of-breed technologies and increase manageability, flexibility, and savings.

Reduce TCO

Invest in server architecture early to benefit from long-term TCO savings.

Anticipate Demand

Use symmetrical networks to support high-demand user activities.

Software-Defined Networks and Virtualization

By enabling more open networks on hardware that’s optimized to deliver peak performance, Intel can help implement software-defined networks and virtualization to enhance programmability and flexibility while reducing operating expenses.
