Virtual cable modem termination system for cable operators

The demand for media bandwidth is voracious today, as subscribers are no longer satisfied with basic video and data services. They now expect high-definition television (HDTV) programming, video on demand (VoD), and more than 100 Mbps speed for data services.
Currently, this is causing challenges for cable operators, as this requires enormous bandwidth and increased capacity of the infrastructure layer. Cable operators need a strategy that incorporates their existing investments to cost-effectively meet users' expectations and at the same time meet business operation requirements.
Therein lies scaling-through virtualization, which is bound to change the cable industry.
