Harmonic has announced that DOCOMO PACIFIC, a wholly owned subsidiary of NTT Japanese mobile operator NTT DOCOMO and the regional leader in innovation, telecommunications and entertainment in the Marianas has selected Harmonic’s fibre access solutions to deliver 10G broadband services.

Coupling Harmonic’s industry-leading cOS™ virtualised broadband core with its Wharf switch and Fin optical line terminals (OLTs), DOCOMO PACIFIC is quickly bringing high-speed, reliable fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) internet to more than 10,000 residents across Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands.

"Rolling out FTTP allows us to address electrical power volatility and grounding challenges, reduce operating costs and ensure a reliable, always-on ultra high-speed broadband service for subscribers," said Mike Smith, executive vice president of network operations at DOCOMO PACIFIC. "Harmonic's virtualised broadband platform put us on a fast track to 10G fibre. In less than five weeks, Harmonic successfully designed, architected, delivered and deployed a fibre-to-the-home solution, which is unprecedented in the broadband world.”

Harmonic's cOS virtualised core software and Wharf hardened switch enable DOCOMO PACIFIC to reach underserved and rural communities in addition to densely populated residential and business districts. Adopting Harmonic’s FTTP solutions minimises new construction, permitting and building constraints, and reduces the service provider’s costs by simplifying the deployment of OLT shelves in outdoor cabinets and remote OLT devices in outdoor nodes.

Harmonic's cOS Central provides real-time insights into network health and AI-based, actionable recommendations to proactively ensure reliable, always-on broadband service and reduce truck rolls.

Harmonic’s Emmy Award-winning cOS virtualised core powers next-gen broadband services to more than 23 million homes for over 100 service providers worldwide, including leading operators in the U.S., Europe, Latin America and Asia.
