"As upstream bandwidth utilization peaks, today's operators need a fast, cost-effective and sustainable solution for expanding network capacity," said
With Harmonic's CableOS Reef RPS, a cable operator's services are converged over IP and transmitted from a single RF port, saving significant wiring, space and time when a node split is needed. Housing up to nine modular line cards in two standard rack units, each with two independent Remote-PHY devices (RPDs) for a total of 18 RPDs, CableOS Reef RPS delivers significantly increased density relative to existing solutions and unprecedented low power consumption per service group.
CableOS Reef RPS extends Harmonic's Pebble-inside family of R-PHY devices, which also includes the modular Ripple node. As the only field-proven R-PHY node that provides 2x4 segmentation, the Ripple node also accelerates capacity expansion through efficient node splits, with the capability to host up to two RPDs while consuming significantly less power than traditional solutions. Harmonic's family of R-PHY devices — the Reef shelf, Ripple node, Shell node and Wave shelf — now cover every cable access deployment scenario, providing unified functionality and unprecedented flexibility as operators address the urgent need for more bandwidth today and in the future.
CableOS Reef RPS has successfully undergone trials with leading cable operators and is now shipping. Further information about Harmonic and the company's solutions is available at www.harmonicinc.com.
