"Building on Harmonic's established leadership position with its CableOS offering, we are further unleashing the power of cloud-native architectures," said
Benefits of the original software-based CMTS pioneered by Harmonic included state-of-the-art bandwidth delivery through commercial-off-the-shelf servers instead of inflexible custom hardware, thereby reducing space, power and hardware upgrade constraints. Now added to the CableOS solution are the cloud-native operational advantages of smaller operating domains, flexible high-availability architectures, elastic scale-out for service expansion, expanded telemetry and simplified A/B testing of new features. Based on open-standard Kubernetes, the CableOS platform dynamically orchestrates containerized applications and is designed to be flexibly deployed across headend, data center and cloud environments.
The CableOS solution also takes advantage of its cloud-native platform to support converged DOCSIS CMTS and FTTH PON OLT applications, and additional containerized access applications such as DOCSIS 4.0 in the future. 10G EPON and 10G XGS-PON are both included in the new CableOS version, as is a remote CableOS OLT module that has the same footprint as Harmonic's Pebble Remote PHY device. Through a single CableOS instance running in a centralized data center, operators can simultaneously deliver Remote PHY DOCSIS and Remote OLT FTTH services, dramatically simplifying the operational complexity of managing and scaling multiple broadband access applications.
"Fiber-to-the-home services are increasingly becoming a standard offering alongside DOCSIS among global MSOs," said
Harmonic will demonstrate its latest CableOS solution with Remote OLT FTTH capability at the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo,
