Design, provision, configure, manage, and secure tomorrow's high-value PacketCable networks
Jeff Riddel, CCIE® No. 12798
PacketCable networks use IP technology to enable a wide range of multimedia services, from IP telephony to interactive gaming and beyond. Because PacketCable-based business and residential services are central to the cable industry's strategy for growth, the industry's need for PacketCable expertise is expected to increase dramatically.
PacketCable Implementation is the first complete primer on PacketCable network design, provisioning, configuration, management, and security. Drawing on consulting experience with every leading cable operator, Jeff Riddel presents real-world case studies, sample network designs, configurations, and practical tips for all facets of PacketCable planning and deployment.
This book's end-to-end coverage has been designed for cable engineers and networking professionals with widely diverse backgrounds and experience. Topics covered include PacketCable specifications and functional components, multimedia terminal adapters (MTA) provisioning, call signaling, media streaming, quality of service (QoS), event messaging, security, and much more. Every chapter contains tables and charts that serve as quick, easy references to key points. Each chapter closes with a summary and chapter review questions designed to help you assess and deepen your understanding.
