ANDOVER, Mass. -- Casa Systems, a worldwide leader in next-generation ultra-broadband access technology, today announced that Jupiter Telecommunications (J:COM), Japan's largest multiple system and multiple channel operator, will converge its existing data and video services onto Casa's C100G Converged Cable Access Platform (CCAP). The CCAP deployment, which began earlier this year, is part of J:COM's strategy to increase bandwidth capabilities and raise the customer quality of experience (QoE), while increasing network efficiency by providing video and data services over a single platform.

J:COM serves over 5 million households with its television, internet and telephony services in the Sapporo, Sendai, Kanto, Kansai and Kyushu regions of Japan. As the Internet of Things (IoT), over-the-top content (OTT) and other high bandwidth technologies continue to proliferate, J:COM wanted to move to a proven solution that could consolidate multiple services and deliver faster high-speed data rates.

"Our subscribers are constantly increasing their demands on the network with more connected devices, streaming HD video and other bandwidth-intensive applications, and we need a flexible, scalable cable access solution to stay a step ahead of these demands," said Kazuhiko Masuda, Senior Corporate Officer, GM, Technology Unit of J:COM. "Casa has proven its ability to deliver fully converged, commercial services over a CCAP. Now, we will be able to provide both video and data over one platform while reducing OPEX and network complexity. Casa also supports Japanese specifications with its CCAP, which was another important requirement for us."

Initially launched in 2013, the C100G provides 32 fully bonded channels and supports the full DOCSIS® 3.1 protocol for greater spectrum utilization. With DOCSIS 3.1 enabled in both the upstream and downstream, operators can quickly deploy multi-gigabit services today while being well-positioned to scale and provide additional services down the road – without the need to rip and replace switch cards, line cards or PHY modules. Providers can also easily evolve to a distributed access architecture (DAA) using the existing C100G and just one new card in the CCAP core, laying the foundation for virtualized access networks.

"In today’s gigabit world, broadband providers need to stay in front of spiraling speed and bandwidth demands," said Jerry Guo, CEO of Casa Systems. "Our C100G CCAP gives providers like J:COM a forward-engineered access solution that is unmatched in its ability to deliver a more streamlined and efficient headend and that is built to scale and deliver on the ultra broadband demands of today and the future."

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
