By Brooke Neuman, TMCnet Copy Editor
CommScope, Inc., a company specializing in infrastructure solutions for communications networks, offers a complete bandwidth-enabling portfolio, including its award- winning Universal Wideband Edge QAM solution.
At the Cable Show in Boston, TMC’s Erik Linask (News - Alert) had the opportunity to speak with Mark Alrutz, director of Technical Sale and Service at CommScope, about how MSOs can add broadband capabilities with no service interruption. Alrutz suggested that, by introducing bandwidth-enhancing technology, intelligent networking, and energy conservation and management solutions, operators can maximize their networks performance and efficiency.
“On the technology front, we have solutions that help to empower and enable these new services that MSOs are looking at,” commented Alrutz, in the interview seen below.
According to the company, the Universal Wideband Edge QAM solution “maximizes a network’s flexibility, allowing operators to roll out their existing voice, video and data services. It also supports higher bandwidth and next-generation services over hybrid fiber coax networks without the need for additional hardware or service disruptions.”
Through this particular platform, QAM channels can be delivered and configured as broadcast video, switched digital video, video on-demand and Internet protocol television and is vital for operators in particular, as they address increasing customer demands for higher and new bandwidth services.
