Digital Access Controller Updates at The Cable Show

Last summer at the SCTE show in Philadelphia, Motorola showed off updates to the Digital Access Controller DAC6000, including a new GUI with features to support customized reports and new monitoring capabilities. This year at The Cable Show, Motorola will highlight a new conditional access system, the Motorola CASMR 100, designed to work with the DAC and create a modular framework for adding features over time. With the DAC 4.0 software release, the CASMR 100 provides several new functions including (but not limited to) support for interactive applications, DTA (digital terminal adapter) deployments, and code downloads for virtual channel maps across a wide range of device types including DTAs.

I freely admit that there are many aspects of the DAC and the CASMR 100 that are beyond my basic understanding, but one of the important things I do know to highlight is OCAP compliance. With the upcoming July 1st deadline for cable operators to be OCAP-compliant per a memorandum of understanding with the CE industry, there is a great deal of pressure to show proof of network readiness. The first Motorola DAC software release to support OCAP was introduced in the fall of 2007, and an update to that  – DAC 3.1.1-17 – was made available in November of 2008. DAC 4.0 is also OCAP-compliant, and the CASMR DTA support includes use of OCAP-compliant Common Download to support code download to DTAs.

In conjunction with the DAC and CASMR demos at The Cable Show, Motorola will also highlight a new Off Line Loader, the Motorola OLL1000. The OLL1000 supports high-speed code downloads in a secure offline warehouse environment. This frees operators from the bandwidth constraints of the live HFC network, and provides the added advantage of allowing operators to pre-load set-tops in anticipation of planned code upgrades. From the product guys:

The OLL1000 delivers a secure, flexible, easy-to-use solution for new and existing operators who wish to reduce the time and cost to deploy set-tops in the field, simplify code download with fewer manual steps and configuration flexibility, and leverage their HFC-based network architectures.

  5. Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Firefox, it looks
    fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some
    overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!

    Other then that, superb blog!

  6. If you would like to ditch that annoying double chin, you’re
    going to need to make some modifications within your eating habits.
    We can wear clothes that distract from the real challenge to get a few pounds, slimming, now with spandex underwear,
    we can easily hide and conceal the bulging waistlines,
    or less than thin thighs. Learn about where to find templates, how to use shortcuts for tasks
    like adding an accent mark, how to insert and modify graphics, and more.
    A double chin appears as the result of loose skin and extra fat deposits.
    As you follow the beautiful road on the monitor you are prompted
    to increase or decrease your mind-body’s energy levels in order to proceed in the game.
