    If there’s one topic that shines brightest amid the pandemic’s destructive path, it is how operators responded to what were demand surges of +30% for Internet capacity. This session, featuring (deeply) involved technologists from Comcast, Cisco and CommScope, looks into the impact of what was a year’s worth of bandwidth growth in a two-week interval, and imparts some handy pro tips when dealing with severely congested networks. Also considered: Long-term traffic forecasting, RF spectrum management, capacity-focused fiber-deep/distributed access architecture implementation, prescriptive node segmentation, advanced tools/reporting, and focused capacity augmentation.
