Network Migration to 1.8 GHz - Operational “Spectral Analysis” Measured in nano-Hertz, a 30-Year Perspective (2022)

By Zoran Maricevic, John Ulm, Craig Coogan; CommScope

Frequency is the number of cycles per unit time. Communications often use signals occupying MHz and GHz spectrum. But when it comes to the network’s operational health, it is the 1 to 10 nano-Hertz frequencies that matter the most!

How so? Those frequencies correspond to 30- and 3-year cycles, respectively. And most activities affecting the network’s health (construction, upgrade, and maintenance cycles) fall within this range. This paper investigates the 5 W’s of network upgrades around the pending Extended Spectrum DOCSIS 4.0 (ESD) rollout and its alternatives. It looks holistically at what makes economic sense over the full 30-year cycle, not just the next incremental step.
