SCTE® LiveLearning:
Lowering Latency Levels

  • With work-from-home collaboration tools emerging as critical during the pandemic and consumers increasingly using bandwidth-eating applications like video conferencing and multi-player online gaming, cable operators and vendors are looking to lower network latency levels to improve the quality-of-experience (QoE) for subscribers. As a result, cable technologists are now working hard on ways to do just that.

  • In this session, we will delve into CableLabs' new Low Latency DOCSIS specs and explore the technologies, techniques and tools that the industry is developing to measure, monitor and reduce latency, jitter, buffering and other network performance issues. We will review the progress that's been made so far and discuss what the future may hold.
