In the increasingly competitive global pay-TV industry, cable TV operators are
searching for ways to increase the amount of IP video they can provide to their
subscribers. One way to accomplish this goal is to upgrade existing equipment in the cable
headend with Converged Cable Access Platform (CCAP)-capable products.

CCAP products are designed to integrate the functions of the Cable Modem Termination
System (CMTS) and the Edge QAM device. In addition to increasing a cable TV system’s
capacity to support DOCSIS-based IP video, CCAP effectively combines the two components
into a single architecture with increased QAM density and overall capacity.

The first CCAP product deployments are expected to occur in North America in 2013. Led
by Comcast, which is on track to deploy CCAP products by mid-2013, a number of other
leading cable TV operators are conducting lab tests or field trials in expectation of
deploying CCAP products over the next 12 to 24 months. However, most CCAP product vendors
do not expect a significant surge in demand for their products until 2014/2015.

This research report examines the development and deployment of CCAP products
[http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/8627wp/ccap_a_big_step ]. It discusses the
background behind the development of CCAP, the projected value of deploying CCAP-capable
equipment, and provides a timeline for expected CCAP deployments in North America and
around the world. It also profiles CCAP vendors and discusses their product development
and deployment strategies. In addition, the report provides a worldwide CCAP equipment
revenue forecast through the year 2017.
