While most cable technologists insist that the industry’s HFC pipes still have long lives ahead of them, cable operators are clearly installing more and more fiber strands in their networks. Whether they’re planning to go mostly all-fiber like Altice or pursue a Fiber Deep strategy like Comcast, Cox, Liberty Global and other major MSOs or just split more and more fiber nodes, operators are fattening up on fiber to deliver more bandwidth, remove active devices, run passive DOCSIS and leverage PON technology on their networks, as well as support their 4G and 5G wireless initiatives. In this webinar, working with our partners at SCTE/ISBE and our sponsors, we’ll explore the implications of cable’s furious fiber feeding frenzy.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
