TORONTO, ON – Adara Technologies Inc., the provider of game-changing solutions for mid-sized cable service providers, today released a comprehensive study on the Switched IP Video (SIPV) platform that enables cable operators to free up significant bandwidth to expand their DOCSIS Internet services quickly and cost effectively. With the demand for ever more broadband bandwidth often stymied by funding and physical HFC plant limitations, nearly 100 North American service providers have now selected the revolutionary SIPV solution.
Switched IP Video exploits the dynamic power of video switching technology to minimize the amount of bandwidth needed for delivering linear cable channels, freeing up massive amounts of bandwidth for DOCSIS. At the same time, SIPV makes it possible for operators to continually expand their channel lineups no matter how many HD and 4K UHD channels they might want to add over time without adding more video bandwidth. This is accomplished more quickly with SIPV at far lower costs and with better results than node splitting, RF capacity expansion, FTTH overbuilds or introducing new compression technology with new set-top boxes.
The white paper examines some of the key market indicators that are shaping network evolution strategies in an environment that has already driven broadband bandwidth consumption far beyond expectations. It also explains in detail how SIPV provides the optimal framework for addressing immediate and ongoing transport capacity requirements arising from these trends and demonstrates that despite the stage of network evolution an operator might be in, by adopting implementation of SIPV, they will be better positioned for any future bandwidth requirements.
The important core building blocks of SIPV are widely-deployed, proven and extremely reliable; in addition, SIPV works with legacy QAM set-tops and gateways. The overall customer experience through the platform is not only better and more reliable than broadcasting, but the super-efficient delivery mechanism enables an unlimited channel line-up offering and a low-cost, success-based introduction of 4K Ultra-HD.
The SIPV solution delivers video more efficiently by “switching” the programs into network service groups only when they are requested, rather than wasting valuable bandwidth by the typical practice of broadcasting all channels, to all set-top boxes, all the time. The benefit is that SIPV can free up to 80% or more of an operator’s video bandwidth in as little as 90 days so that it can be immediately used for DOCSIS 3.0, 3.1 or Full Duplex expansion to multi-Gigabit.
