Leveraging Legacy Video in Digital Access Architecture Networks (2020)

By Wesley Weiss, Anjan Bajwa & Corwin Martens, Shaw Communications Inc

Digital Access Architecture (DAA) is driving the transformation in next-generation cable-access networks. In contrast, the effective integration of legacy video services and automation deployments can be a daunting, and an often-overlooked task. DAA technology is continually evolving, and these issues apply to many operators facing similar challenges. Creating a solid foundation and adopting DAA technology in stages allows for a scalable video architecture and a one-touch approach to deployment, thereby avoiding expensive upgrade costs to customers and infrastructure.

This whitepaper explores Shaw’s operational and technical complexities of integrating legacy video into a DAA network and presents the best practices and lessons learned from this undertaking. A robust discussion around functional and automation transformations are covered to prepare operators for largescale Remote PHY Device (RPD) deployment, modification, and monitoring in an evolving network ecosystem.
