Challenges Coordinating Swap-out Programs

Over the past 10 years MSOs have deployed new products and services with increasing velocity. DOCSIS 3.0 is now common, DOCSIS 4.0 is on the horizon, and download speeds are an important competitive weapon. The installed base of early DOCSIS devices is approaching end-of-life.

More than 50% of the customer premise devices installed in the past 10 years are candidates for replacement in the next 12 months.

Service providers who can accomplish this will retain customers and grow revenue.

Why do Engineering, Marketing, and Customer Service all need this done yesterday?

  • Engineering must replace end-of-life devices to upgrade network quality
  • Marketing must offer competitive tiered high speed offerings
  • Customer Service suffers through problems resulting from aging devices

Until now, it’s been difficult to handle device replacements in an efficient and cost effective manner. Only the most critical device replacements have been done, often including high costs for customer contact activities and truck-rolls. Tracking and reporting progress has been difficult, as has coordination between Engineering, Marketing, and Customer Care.
