Scaling Traditional CCAP To Meet The Capacity Needs Of The Next Decade (2014)

By John Ulm, Tom Cloonan, ARRIS, Inc.

Traditional CCAP systems have come under siege from new distributed access architectures such as Remote PHY and Remote CCAP. This paper takes a very detailed look at how traditional CCAP systems might evolve over the next decade to meet the expected growth demands. The paper shows how traditional CCAP + AM Optic systems could achieve a 10X increase in Service Groups per head end within today’s existing footprint. In addition to this, a 10X increase in capacity can be expected thanks to DOCSIS® 3.1. These capacities can even be achieved at extended distances (e.g. 40-80km) and with dozens of wavelengths.
