Harmonic Secures Patent For CableOS CCAP Core

News Image
Harmonic has secured a patent for its Virtual Converged Cable Access Platform (CCAP) Core.

The US Patent and Trademark Office awarded Patent Number 10,020,962 to the OTT video services provider.

The patent describes virtualisation of the traditionally hardware-based CCAP technology that is the heart of modern cable broadband networks. Through Harmonic's CableOS™ solution, this virtualisation breakthrough enables higher internet speeds for consumers, and significantly more deployment flexibility, while lowering capital and operating costs for cable operators.

"The future of cable access technology is virtualised software, and the award of this foundational patent highlights Harmonic's ground-breaking innovation and increasingly strong market position," said Patrick Harshman, president and chief executive officer of Harmonic. "Our CableOS solution is rapidly gaining momentum in the market, reflecting that leading cable operators are becoming convinced of the advantages offered by virtualisation. This patent and our 94 pending patent applications, a number of which relate to our CableOS technologies, make a clear statement of our ability to solve the real-world challenges for our customers: an initiative we are proud to lead."

Over recent years, Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) has made a major impact on the telecommunications industry. Harmonic's patented CableOS technology brings NFV to the cable access space, providing operators with the market's first software-based CCAP and end-to-end remote PHY system that seamlessly supports centralised and distributed architectures.

Harmonic's CableOS solution is now beginning to be rolled out in volume by a number of leading cable operators, marking a paradigm shift in the cable access industry.
