ANDOVER, Mass. -- Casa Systems, a worldwide leader in next-generation cable edge technology, today announced that Mediacom Communications, the eighth largest cable operator in the U.S. serving 1.3 million customers primarily throughout the Midwest and Southeast, has deployed Casa’s C100G CCAP to provide subscribers with gigabit broadband speeds in Mediacom’s Columbia and Jefferson City, Missouri, markets. The deployment of the C100G will improve Mediacom customers’ quality of experience (QoE) as data demands continue to rise.
Mediacom offers its phone, internet, and video services to an extensive clientele of residential and business customers. With the Internet of Things (IoT), over-the-top content (OTT) and other bandwidth-intensive applications on the rise, cable operators need to boost network capacity and ensure fast, flawless access for subscribers. To meet this new generation of customer requirements, Mediacom sought a solution with the necessary technological features – higher channel density, DOCSIS 3.1 readiness and easy scalability for future growth – to improve its operational efficiency and the bottom line.
“We are excited to bring our long experience providing commercial-grade gigabit services to our residential customers beginning with these communities in Mid-Missouri,” said JR Walden, Mediacom’s SVP of technology. “Casa’s C100G was the right CMTS solution given our timing, facilities requirements, performance needs and desire to support the future evolution of our network and services.”
The solution’s advanced technological and operational efficiency over its predecessor CMTS technology permitted Mediacom to offer its subscribers a superior user experience. The 32 fully bonded channels, clear path to DOCSIS 3.1 adoption, and scalability provide more robust speeds today and set Mediacom on the path to continue providing top-echelon service in the gigabit era. Likewise, rack space and energy reduction in the headend combines with simplified operations to create immediate and long-term cost efficiencies for Mediacom.
