Altice Picks Cisco for CCAP, DOCSIS 3.1
PARIS -- Cisco today announced an agreement with Altice to deploy a next-generation converged cable access platform (CCAP) across its multi-country footprint, with the first rollouts being done in France. The deployment of this platform from Cisco allows Altice to build the foundation for a long-term evolution of its cable access architecture, by taking advantage of the advanced, massive DOCSIS 3.1 capabilities of the Cisco® Evolved CCAP solution.
With the DOCSIS 3.1 capabilities of this new technology platform, Altice can scale the bandwidth offered to its growing broadband customer base up to 10 Gbps, across the fiber-deep access network of Numericable-SFR in France, and other operators within the group. The embedded cloud and SDN-based technologies in the platform will provide Altice with fast innovation to better connect people's everyday lives to the Internet of Everything. The platform will also allow Altice to offer, in the future, a new range of faster Internet speeds over its cable network, and bring a new paradigm of entertainment experiences to its customers.
