Casa Systems' Flexible MAC Architecture: Interoperable design with powerful advantages
Using a cloud-first approach, Casa Systems' FMA solution provides full control plane functionality that delivers a new level of interoperability and operational agility for virtual, cloud-native and edge network functions. Casa Systems' innovative end-to-end FMA solution includes next-gen Remote MACPHY Devices (RMDs) managed by Casa Systems' virtual FMA Controller to orchestrate, onboard, manage and scale deployments. The RMD provides an evolutionary path for operators to transition from I-CCAP and Remote PHY to Remote MACPHY as a strategic step towards DOCSIS 4.0 (Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification).
With the Casa Systems' FMA solution, operators can accelerate their network transformation and deployment of new services with a consistent cloud platform that extends across the network from the data center to the edge.
