Cable operators can embrace Open Access as a wholesale revenue opportunity and as an opportunity to create closer bonds with both residential and corporate subscribers. They can eliminate Open Access woes by deploying intelligent, carrier-class routing at the edge of the cable network to isolate and police individual traffic flows.
Operators can break down traditional
barriers to Open Access by implementing carrier-class routing with sophisticated perflow queuing to support multiple providers of content, applications, and services over shared cable networks. They can use advanced technologies such as MPLS and policy based Routing to deliver end-to-end QoS across the access network and the core networks of multiple revenue-sharing partners.
