Next week's IP&TV World Forum
in London is set to discuss the opportunities and challenges arising from the implementation of IP-based services for cable operators. Increased adoption of IP across the industry has led to this year's show being renamed to highlight and encompass the increasing number of service providers -- including cable companies -- that are now adopting IP technology, leading the show to focus on hybrid, IP and connected TV. Global companies Cable Europe
, Virgin Media
will come together during the Day 1 keynote plenary session, "Combining cable bandwidth with IP flexibility," to discuss the shift to IP delivery of services and the user experience.
