As costs for fiber equipment and installation have come down, many Cable Operators are considering deploying fiber to offer the increased speeds their subscribers are looking for rather than DOCSIS 3.1. One of the challenges for a cable operator who switches from DOCSIS to fiber is the time and cost involved in changing how they provision the device in the customer home. In the following video I talk with Peter Olivia, ZCorum’s Vice President of Systems, about the advantages of using DOCSIS provisioning of EPoN and GPoN (DPoE and DPoG). Peter explains how a transition to fiber can be done faster and less expensively by leveraging the DOCSIS provisioning system the cable operator already has in place.
