SCTE•ISBE Live Learning Webinar Series: Closing the GAP on GAP

Date : 2020-08-20

Under an evolving SCTE/ISBE standard known as the Generic Access Platform (GAP), cable technologists are now working on a fiber-optic node initiative that will standardize the node housings and the interfaces for various service modules that can be plugged into the node like Lego bricks. Rather than having to deploy or rip down discrete, proprietary nodes from various vendors for FTTP, DOCSIS 3.1, WiFi, 5G, wireless backhaul and so on, cable operators could instead snap in one standardized node housing or discard the modules as needed.
This webinar will look at the emerging GAP standard, the promise that the modular node initiative offers, the initial use cases for it and the hurdles that still must be overcome.
