  Webinar Recap: Enabling Cable Networks for Mobile Backhaul

Last week, Craig Cowden (Charter), John Chapman (Cisco) and I jointly presented a webinar on improving latency for mobile backhaul over DOCSIS. Moderated by CableLabs’ Rob Alderfer, we:

  • Discussed cable’s wireless strategy and business case for mobile backhaul
  • Did a deep dive into the technical details on how our Bandwidth Report (BWR) proposal can reduce the DOCSIS latency to ~1ms to enable mobile backhaul.

More background on the BWR protocol and the joint development project between CableLabs and Cisco can be found in my blogs “Powering the Future of Mobile Backhaul” and “Enabling the Cable Networks for Mobile Backhaul.

The webinar was attended by a record number of audiences from operators, equipment suppliers and members of the public. With a large amount of interest building from cable operators, we have gathered a group of CMTS and LTE vendors this week and began the standardization work on the BWR protocol. Please contact me if you are interested in joining the standardization group.

For those of you attending the Mobile World Congress, stop by the CableLabs booth 5J81, Hall 5. I am also holding a joint demo with John Chapman at the Cisco booth number 3E30, Hall 3.
