SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Harmonic (NASDAQ: HLIT), the worldwide leader in video delivery infrastructure, today introduced the CableOS system, the industry’s first software-based CCAP solution. Fundamentally changing the economics of operating a cable access network, the game-changing CableOS solution enables the migration to gigabit capacity and resolves operators’ space and power constraints in the headend and hub. The end-to-end solution provides unprecedented scalability, agility and cost savings, and enables fast deployment of new IP-based data, video and voice services. The CableOS solution will make its public debut this week during SCTE Cable-Tec Expo, booth 1948.
“Today’s cable operators have a remarkable opportunity when it comes to rolling out next-generation gigabit broadband services,” said Patrick Harshman, president and CEO at Harmonic. “The software-based CableOS solution provides the tools to take advantage of that opportunity, as well as gain the benefits associated with distributed access architecture. Leveraging the full extent of Harmonic expertise in developing software-based technologies, CableOS helps our customers simplify operations, generate new revenue streams and reduce TCO.”
Featuring the industry’s first software-based CMTS Core server and full-spectrum DOCSIS 3.1 Remote PHY systems, CableOS Core software runs on 1-RU COTS Intel processor-based servers in a headend, hub or data center.
