TVS Cable Deploys Harmonic's CableOS™ Virtualized Cable Access Solution

News Image
TVS Cable has deployed Harmonic's CableOS™ virtualized cable access solution for new DOCSIS 3.1 broadband services.

The industry's first software-based Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS), Harmonic's CableOS solution enables TVS Cable to provide gigabit internet speeds while overcoming space, power and legacy-hardware complexity constraints.

"Prior to deploying CableOS, we were running seven CMTSs over 1,100 miles of plant space. It was complex and expensive to manage so many different devices, IP pools and hardware types," said David Thacker, assistant manager at TVS Cable. "Harmonic's CableOS solution significantly reduced the complexity, enabling us to be more agile, efficient and scalable. The CableOS solution beat out the competitive offerings in all aspects to give us a chance to be a frontrunner in delivering gigabit internet services."

Harmonic's CableOS solution supports fast deployment of broadband and streaming video services while also simplifying network operations. It does this by enabling a centralized virtualized CMTS Core connected to distributed dense PHY shelves located in multiple network hub facilities. Through the use of COTS servers and switches, CableOS lowers TVS Cable's broadband delivery costs and accelerates the time to market for bold new service offerings.

"Virtualization is beginning to have a profound impact on the cable market, enabling greater agility, capacity and service velocity with reduced space and power requirements," said Nimrod Ben-Natan, senior vice president and general manager, cable access business, at Harmonic. "We are proud to lead this virtualization movement in the cable access industry with our CableOS solution, which is helping operators like TVS Cable unleash compelling new broadband services."
