Aurora Networks Defines the Evolution of Cable at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo

Company takes leadership role in continually “Defining the Evolution” for cable operators while showcasing industry innovations at this year’s show

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Aurora Networks, Inc., the number one optical access solution provider for cable operators, today unveils new company initiatives to further exemplify how it is “Defining the Evolution” in cable at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo, taking place October 17-19 in Orlando, Fl.

Cable operators are in various stages of evolving their existing HFC networks to an all-IP infrastructure. In an effort to meet the growing demand for advanced services, such as 3D, video on-demand, HD-quality content and over-the-top (OTT) video, cable operators are posed with challenges to overcome the capacity bottleneck that comes with these services. Aurora Networks helps operators overcome these network constraints and gradually adapt and prepare to capitalize on the new opportunities, while reducing capital costs and operational overhead. The company is “Defining the Evolution,” enabling operators to create an optical transport infrastructure and access network that will transition and evolve with their residential and commercial customers for years to come.

The first to introduce Universal Digital Return and Fiber Deep, to the industry’s first Node PON™ and Node QAM technology, Aurora Networks has been at the forefront of developing innovative solutions that enable cable operators to deliver the capacity, flexibility and services that their customers demand. From these past innovations, to future ones, Aurora Networks remains focused on delivering cost-effective, future-proof, targeted solutions that are defining the evolution to meet current and future needs for operators.

To learn how Aurora Networks is “Defining the Evolution” of cable and to see their products at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo, visit them at booth #2335.

In addition, Ron Wolfe, senior director, global product strategy at Aurora Networks, will be presenting a paper, “Impact of Distributed RF Signal Generation on Edge Facilities in HFC Networks,” in the Smart Energy Management Initiative session, “The Kilowatts are coming! Act now or be overpowered,” scheduled for Thursday, October 18, from 8:00 a.m. to 9:15 a.m.
