Successful Deployments
of Remote-PHY
To deal with rapid growth in bandwidth demand, operators must embrace
new technologies and architectures...

H

owever, these must supply the desired
capacity and deliver higher data
speeds with significant operational cost
savings. Operators need to determine which
combination of technologies and approaches
will best meet subscriber demand over the next
five to 10 years. Many are adopting DOCSIS
3.1 and Distributed Access Architectures,
while employing Remote PHY (R-PHY) as a
key ingredient in the transformation required to
build a more efficient, scalable, cost-effective
network.
R-PHY is a technique for separating the
QAM
modulation/demodulation
portion
of the traditional integrated Cable Modem
Termination System (CMTS) or Converged
Cable Access Platform (CCAP) and moving
it to the end of the network. Shifting these
components out of the CMTS or CCAP closer
to the subscriber boosts signal performance

and reduces space and power requirements
at the headend. These benefits make R-PHY a
potent tool for operators.
One of the first Remote PHY deployments
was performed in 2016 by Stofa, Denmark's
second-biggest provider of television,
broadband and telephony. Stofa chose ARRIS
as a partner for technology, planning, network
design and product deployment.
As the cable operator has discovered,
benefits of the upgrade include leveraging
DOCSIS 3.1 to increase capacity in both the
upstream and the downstream directions.
Transitioning to digital fiber drives better
utilization by multiplexing many nodes onto
the same existing fiber and dynamically
sharing traffic across fibers. Reaching a
higher modulation order increases the amount
of spectrum available for services.
For Stofa, the greatest value impact of

R-PHY occurred at the headend, in the
form of space and power savings and
the potential for facilities consolidation.
Moving PHY processing out of the
headend reduced the number of rack
units required by more than two thirds
and cut power demand in half.
The number of managed headend devices
needed to support 200 service groups
dropped from eight to four, radically
simplifying operations. Other benefits include
a single provisioning interface for the MAC
core and fewer interoperability issues. With
fewer IP addresses needed, the operations
team can keep a smaller inventory to deal
with outages.
Stofa learned several valuable best practices
including: start testing early to uncover
migration challenges and operational issues
before they can impede the rollout; dedicate

resources that have the right experience and
skill sets to plan the CIN network and timing
architecture; and aim for a gradual migration
that allocates sufficient time for capturing
process glitches and technical issues.
A Remote PHY deployment and network
upgrade provides value by increasing
bandwidth capacity and reducing costs,
making it key for profitable network expansion
in the future.

Such environments require a number
of technologies working together, with
the virtual set being just one of them. As
virtual sets sit in a broadcast environment,
InfinitySet must seamlessly integrate into
the broadcaster's workflow and become
the central hub of many elements
within the broadcast ecosystem.
Being the graphics engine is just
one of them. From camera tracking
to interaction with other devices,
controllers, mixers, chroma keyers,
newsroom workflows and more,
all are compatible with InfinitySet.
Additionally, the Brainstorm engine
buffers all Inputs and Outputs to
provide consistently smooth output.

Brainstorm's approach goes beyond
what a game engine can do by itself.
Broadcast graphics workflows have specific
requirements, like NRCS integration, hardware
