CED's upcoming free live Webcast explores how cable operators can combine wireless with DOCSIS or even out-of-band plant extension technologies to serve commercial customers unreached by the operator's existing HFC network. What are the benefits and limitations of these technologies? How do they fit into cable business models? During this exclusive one-hour live event, you’ll discover… The most effective ways to broaden your commercial service areas to include customers that are physically (or financially) beyond the reach of your HFC network. Ways to wirelessly extend your DOCSIS plant to offer data services to commercial customers. The cost to reach those customers—and how quickly you can expect to see returns on your investment. Whether or not incumbent service providers should be concerned about 802.11x hotspots. Where WiMAX and other emerging wireless broadband technologies fit into the commercial services picture.
