Migrating legacy QAM-based video services to your CCAP is in most cases a prerequisite to moving to a Distributed Access Architecture (DAA). But limitations around the encryption capabilities of CCAP video cores are threatening to delay the move to a distributed architecture, as well as the resulting benefits
Offering a detour around this roadblock, and a way for MSOs to accelerate the evolution of their networks, is a new RF R-PHY video engine from ATX Networks. Available through AMT, the ATX GigaPass is a
QAM-to-IP mux pass-through solution that enables cable operators to proceed with DAA deployments while working out lingering content encryption issues. And MSOs in a position to migrate all subscribers to an IPTV service in the next few years can potentially use the GigaPass to forego the expense and complexity of building out a CCAP video core altogether.
