As cable operators weigh approaches to meeting their upstream bandwidth requirements now and well into the future, they want to be sure to choose optical return solutions that will minimize their immediate costs while maximizing their flexibility to expand capacity over time.

Frequently, vendors’ claims for digital return as the superior option are based on comparisons with outdated analog technology, when in truth, in most situations operators will invariably find that the better choice is an analog solution. It is essential that MSOs have a full understanding of how these options compare for an given upgrade scenario. Innotrans offers a perspective on these issues that will help operators reach decisions they will be glad they made for years to come. For more information download the Whitepaper or email
