Harmonic Develops An Upgrade Kit

News Image
Harmonic has developed an upgrade kit that breathes new life into Cisco's end-of-life GS7000 node, transforming it into a distributed access architecture (DAA) node that supports Flexible MAC Architecture (FMA) solutions for delivering next-gen broadband.

As part of Harmonic's market-leading CableOS® Cloud-Native Core Platform family, the Pebble DAA device features a uniquely small form factor that lowers space, power and cooling costs while easily adapting to any deployment scenario.

"Following Cisco's end-of-life announcement of the GS7K node, Harmonic has stepped up to offer MSOs a path to 10G while enabling them to retain their legacy node infrastructure," said Nimrod Ben-Natan, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Cable Access Business at Harmonic. "By integrating our Pebble device into the GS7K, we empower multiple global operators to upgrade their legacy nodes to DAA architecture, rapidly increasing upstream and downstream broadband capacity in the most economical and sustainable way possible."

Leveraging Harmonic's expertise and support, integrating the Pebble DAA device with the GS7000 node is fast and simple. The upgrade can be performed efficiently in the field without needing to take down the node, replace the power supply or change the node lid. By offering turnkey solutions and supporting multiple access architectures, including PON, DAA and FMA, Harmonic increases operators' business agility, enabling them to address ever-evolving broadband requirements.

"With flexible, sustainable solutions, we can rapidly upgrade our networks," said Justin Colwell, Executive Vice President, Connectivity Technology at Charter Communications. "Leveraging Harmonic's DAA-based solutions will fuel faster, more reliable internet for our customers."

In addition to providing operators with a solution supporting the GS7000 node, Harmonic offers a seamless transition path from legacy integrated CMTS to a modern and advanced virtualized CMTS, helping them power the ultra-connected future of broadband, including high-split and symmetric 10G.

The upgrade kit will be available and in trials with leading operators by the end of this month.
