Art Skinner’s Presentations for 2016
When you multiply this effort across dozens of headends and thousands of subscribers, it’s easy to see why the biggest companies with the best IT departments have the advantages needed to keep their businesses thriving. Small and mid-sized operators don’t stand a chance operating the old way.
This session will discuss the advantages of software-based diagnostics tools over traditional equipment. Key points will include:
- Business cases outlining how the tools have improved efficiency and the operator’s bottom line.
- Activities that are managed from central locations rather than at each customer’s home.
- How the latest innovations in broadband diagnostics are simplifying maintenance and support.
- Billing, diagnostics and provisioning, how they all work together.
- Centralized tools that can manage diagnostics for DOCSIS, DSL, FTTH and Wireless networks eliminating the need for multiple management setups.
This session will cover why WiFi should be a major part of the smaller operator’s business strategy and the need for efficient management in order to optimize their Wi-Fi networks and monetize their investments.
Some questions to be covered:
What factors should smaller operators consider when deciding on a Wi-Fi strategy?
What benefits can smaller operators realize from deploying Wi-Fi?
What are the obstacles to overcome?

On Wednesday, January 27, 2016 from 11:15am to 12:15pm, Helms will be participating in Technical Session #2 on the Current Challenges and Upcoming Advancements in In-Home WiFi Troubleshooting:
According to some estimates, over fifty percent of all inbound calls to customer service centers regarding “slow Internet” are related to WiFi problems. As speeds to the consumer have increased, along with the number of connected devices, the in-home WiFi network has become the weakest link in an operator’s broadband service. Most operators do not have any visibility beyond the cable modem, and are not aware of poor transmit speeds and transmission errors on the subscriber’s WiFi network. This can make troubleshooting speed issues difficult and time consuming. These results are also in stark contrast to the high expectations subscribers have when they choose a provider.
The primary purpose of this session will be to educate attendees on the nature of WiFi issues today, and some steps that can be taken to mitigate some of the issues and complaints. New DOCSIS-based solutions that are becoming available that give greater diagnostic insight into a subscriber’s WiFi network, along with the ability to actively and even proactively manage WiFi embedded devices will also be discussed.
