Converging the Cable & Mobile Networks

Wednesday, October 18, 2023 @ 7:30AM - 9:00AM

Moderated by: Craig Leddy


With 5G mobile service swiftly rolling out throughout the world, cable and wireless technologists are teaming up to create a shared network framework that will enable operators to mix and match DOCSIS, mobile, video and other services over the same core infrastructure. 

As part of CableLabs’ 10G Lab initiative, tech execs are developing a broad converged platform that can support multiple software stacks at the network edge using a common management interface. How much progress have the convergence teams made in crafting this innovative new platform? What will this new uber network infrastructure look like? Which use cases seem the most promising? What are the biggest hurdles the teams are encountering?
