Cable operators face challenges determining their long-term network strategy from legacy coax

Increased competition

It's difficult effectively competing against fiber overbuilders encroaching on your markets and retaining your loyal subscribers.

Aging HFC infrastructure

You’re challenged to keep up with subscriber demands and increased competition while reactively responding to issues.

Network visibility limitations

Without a complete view of your network and subscribers, it's tough to identify areas for improvement or make informed decisions.


Differentiate on subscriber experience regardless of your underlying technology

Redefine how the subscriber-facing network is provisioned, monitored, and managed allowing you to provide the seamless reliability and quality your subscribers deserve. Whether you are upgrading a legacy network or building a new one, Intelligent Access has all the building blocks you need to build, automate, and scale your operations.

DPx is a software solution that allows cable operators to integrate their existing DOCSIS OSS with fiber-based networks. With DPx, operators can manage both coax and fiber systems from a single platform, reducing operational costs and complexity.

Managed Wi-Fi  enables service providers to offer their subscribers the best Wi-Fi experience on any network, whether it is HFC, fiber, or both. With managed Wi-Fi, service providers can remotely monitor, diagnose, and optimize the Wi-Fi performance and quality of service for each subscriber, reducing support costs and increasing customer satisfaction.

Enhance the subscriber experience by using automated notifications and workflows to manage broadband operations. By automating tasks, broadband service providers can reduce costs, improve efficiency, and deliver faster and more reliable services.
