Even as cable operators are moving toward wider upstream spectrum for improved speed and bandwidth, the challenges will also increase. We’re upping the ante on upstream in this workshop, moderated by CableLabs’ Karthik Sunderesan,  where we’ll discuss that activating new upstream spectrum can come with a number of unforeseen challenges. At the same time, PNM experience can provide an excellent foundation for detecting, characterizing and repairing many common obstacles for faster, smoother OFDMA deployments. CableLabs’ Thomas Williams will dial in on how PNM benefits the upstream, and Comcast’s Takashi Hayakawa unveils the latest results of mid-split and OFDMA from the field.

2022 Virtual Press Office and Media Services

This year, Pipeline magazine will be upgrading the press office with an expanded and direct reach to technology decision makers from within the SCTE audience and Pipeline’s global audience. Legacy wire services distribute your news to mostly broadcast and newspaper media points where journalists have to be on specific topical assignments to cover your news, leading to a high degree of fall out. This year, your complete news will be directly distributed to the attendees of the event; to key technology decision makers from within Pipeline’s global audience; top stories will be featured in the Digital Show Daily, and all news will be featured on Pipeline magazine’s homepage in its news ticker, news center, and include a dedicated, full press release page. Pipeline is also a certified Google News source to amplify the visibility of your news across the web.
