This year ANGA COM took place on a digital event platform 8 - 10 June. The three-day event offered online visitors with virtual conference programme, opportunities for networking and digital showrooms for presenting exhibitors' offering in more detail.
What is your middlegame strategy to 10G services?
As an operator, your opening might have been a distributed access rollout but the middlegame strategy defines your endgame, whether it is full FTTH, DOCSIS 4.0, or the golden mean.
Numerous strategical options are capable of delivering multi-gigabit broadband speeds and keeping up with consumers' demand for faster and higher capacity Internet. We have already wittnessed the impact of digitalisation to the demand of services when a year ago millions of people suddenly started to keep connected and run much of their daily activities remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
During ANGA COM 2021 we highlighted the importance of practical considerations on technology alternatives, their possibilities and limitations when planning for your best play to the future. With the right moves and strategy, network transformation will be on your stronger side.

Panel: Fixed Mobile Convergence - Multiple Facets of FMC, Tuesday, 8 JUNE, 15.00 - 16.00 CET.
Migrating to DOCSIS 4.0 without migraine, Hanno Narjus, Head of Teleste’s Networks business unit
Migrating to DOCSIS 4.0, or even thinking of it, may cause you a headache. Deciding if the network spectrum should be extended, weighing benefits of Remote PHY and MACPHY alternatives and pondering the virtualization of some functions, may confuse. Especially, if all possible combinations are considered. However, some combinations make more sense. In his speech, Hanno Narjus offers painkillers by suggesting to jettison some combinations that have only small chance of becoming mainstream solutions.
Panel: 10G - Building a Future proofed Network, Tuesday, 8 JUNE, 16.00 - 17:00 CET.
Broadcast Television over DAA –implementation insights, Julius Tikkanen, Vice President of Video Service Platforms
Cable industry expects the full IP delivery to replace the traditional RF-based broadcast television. Nevertheless, the transition from the current RF and OTT hybrid offering to the full IP will take years, in most countries even a decade is not enough due to the existing legacy implementations systems. While underlying networks are shifting towards distributed architectures, cable operators are expected to deliver linear broadcast television services 24/7 at the same time. We present how top-notch operators are building video headends that meet existing and future needs at the same time when distributed access architecture rollouts take place.
Panel: Beyond DOCSIS 3.1 - Empowering your Network. Wednesday, 9 JUNE, 14.00 - 15.00 CET.
1.8 GHz - Hunting the last bits, Rami Kimari, Vice President of HFC Products
10G has become the cable industry’s promise towards consumers, and a marketing tool against full fibre and wireless alternatives. Naturally, the industry is studying how future networks could reach speeds that make at least marketers happy. However, the target may have led companies to look for access network alternatives forgetting one of the biggest strengths of cable industry, pragmatism. We claim that a delicate balance between promises and pragmatism can be reached when cable operators move towards 1.8 GHz access networks.
Thank you for connecing us online! We are looking forward to the next ANGA COM in 2022.
