CableLabs is working on 3 projects focused on using data to help companies grow revenues. By incorporating global standards and providing extensions based on member’s insight, CableLabs is developing open application programming interfaces (APIs) to create a common data structure to automate the exchange of data, which aims to accelerate the sales proposal and service delivery. The group is also working on virtualized service delivery and management tools to provide infrastructure support to exchange the data needed. Finally, it has developed an approach with a reusable library of data artifacts, which includes common APIs, data models and entity definitions as examples that aims to replace the “siloed approaches of the past.” The approach is expected to support CableLabs members as they begin to realize the value of their big data reserves, adapt quickly to the shifts in technology, and move towards a software-centric and cloud networking operational world.
