COLOGNE -- Cisco today announced an agreement with Quickline AG to deploy the Cisco cBR-8next-generation converged cable access platform (CCAP) across Quickline’s network footprint, including 21 independent cable operators in Switzerland.
Quickline AG is a full-service provider of IT, telecommunications and multimedia services to residential and business customers. Together with its 21 independent cable operators, it provides services for 400,000 customers in Switzerland.
In addition to scaling its current broadband network with DOCSIS 3.0 to offer higher-bandwidth, Quickline can leverage the massive DOCSIS 3.1 capabilities of the new Cisco cBR-8 Evolved CCAP platform to offer multi-Gigabit entertainment services.
The ability to serve all DOCSIS and video services across a single connector of a cBR-8 chassis brings significant operational benefits for Quickline operators, including simplifying the growth of their cable broadband network, transforming from CCAP video to all-IP services and establishing a path for virtualization and SDN.
