Harmonic Powers DOCSIS 3.1 Upgrade for Hilliary Communications
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Harmonic (NASDAQ: HLIT) today announced that Hilliary Communications, a leading provider of broadband, digital cable TV and telephone services in Oklahoma, has deployed Harmonic's CableOS virtualized cable access solution to upgrade to DOCSIS 3.1 and create a new 1 Gigabit service tier, while overcoming the space, power and operational complexity constraints associated with the previously deployed legacy hardware solution. The industry's first fully virtualized Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS), Harmonic's CableOS provides Hilliary Communications with a flexible, scalable and cost-effective cable access solution that enables delivery of cutting-edge internet and streaming video services.
"To cost-effectively grow our service offering and fully exploit the power of broadband, we needed the ability to support DOCSIS 3.1, as well as legacy DOCSIS 2.0," said Mike Rowell, director of operations at Hilliary Communications. "Harmonic's CableOS solution features incredible scalability, allowing us to increase broadband capacity and launch new features easily, with the flexibility to deploy R-PHY in the future."
Harmonic's CableOS solution centralizes the CMTS software core on commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) servers at Hilliary Communications' main headend site, while locating simple, compact and power-efficient PHY shelves in remote hub facilities. This innovative architecture enables Hilliary Communications to significantly reduce operating costs, while enhancing today's service and creating flexibility to further scale bandwidth and customer footprint as its business grows.
