2020 Summmer Edition

Welcome to our 2020 summer magazine. Starting from this edition, we have opened our magazine for our partners to contribute. You will see some very interesting articles from First Principles Innovations, from XONA Partners and from Broadband Success Partners. We will start to include contributions from our Federal partners from the next edition.

We applaud the contributions offered by SCTE.ISBE standards group for the last 25 years. The Duke Tech Solutions (DTS) team is honored to be actively participating in many important SCTE working groups such as Aging In Place, Telemedicine, IoT, Energy 2020, and AI/ML. You will find the background of the Aging In Place and Telemedicine working groups (excerpts from the SCTE new letter – Interval), and thoughts of some of our team members in the magazine.

Cable operators are at crossroads. They are looking at transforming their access networks, looking into newer revenue generating opportunities, entering the wireless space by participating in the spectrum auctions and looking into improving the customer Quality of Experience through edge computing etc. These are all multi-billion-dollar investments. You will find our thoughts in multiple white papers and blogs in this magazine.

Many of the transformational challenges are focused only on capital spending. In this edition, we show the impact of some of these decisions on the end to end operational aspects, such as power, space and cooling. We have included some of our blogs on Extended Spectrum DOCSIS, analytical framework that is applicable for the public sector and why IoT space is not taking off.
