Cable operators are now in the midst of the largest network transformation in decades. Cable headends are getting retrofitted with new equipment, the outside plant is being reconstructed, and set-tops, routers, modems and other on-premises devices will be swapped out in nearly every home.

Industry experts have speculated that soon, the Internet will be "fast enough" for whatever a consumer wants to do with it. Operators will become less concerned about the aggregate speed of the Internet and more concerned about delivering new services faster. Unfortunately, while the industry has focused on essential physical plant upgrades, many operators are not prepared to make this pivotal transition.

Join Calix and Light Reading as they explore how cable operators can leverage network intelligence with Software-Defined Access to improve operational efficiencies, deliver a differentiated customer experience, and speed past the competition.
