Training Overview

As bandwidth capacity needs grow rapidly, there is increasing pressure on headend and HFC infrastructure. New modular distributed headend architectures are hot topics to address the need for smaller scale and more flexible options. The basic idea around Distributed Access Architectures (DAA) is to distribute some or all the functionality of CMTS/CCAP from headend down to a remote location.

If you want to know why distributed architectures are a hot topic, what Remote PHY is all about, what the difference with a Remote CCAP architecture is… then this course is for you. We will look at the specs, not the marketing.​​

  • Gain key insights in current and future remote cable architectures​
  • R-PHY & R-MAC-PHY advantages and challenges​
  • Get to know the protocols (GCP, R-DEPI/R-UEPI, R-DTI) R-PHY is using to make this (more complex) distributed system work​
  • Synchronize time using PTP​
  • How to provision and monitor all the RPDs, and upgrade them,…​
  • How to add analog services over the new digital optics using Out Of Band (OOB)​
  • How to compare R-PHY with R-MAC-PHY solutions​

Say About Our Service

Optimized parameters not only resulted in a boost in overall performance, PŸUR even scored a whopping 100% in Download and Upload Data Tests.

Thomas Anders

Director of Engineering at PYUR

No new investment was needed to test Wi-Fi 6E, ByteBlower wireless endpoints are compatible with new devices out-of-the-box. Wi-Fi 7 will be no different!

Russell Bean

Manager IP Operations at Cable & Wireless

The Excentis training course exceeded our high expectations. In depth yet accessible to a broad audience. Technical topics but never boring!

Endika Miragaya

Delivery Manager at Vodafone Group Services Düsseldorf

Thank you for your excellent work. We found the report very interesting and were happy to see the quality of choices quantified and objectively confirmed.
