Casa Systems, a specialist in ultra broadband solutions, has announced that Time Warner Cable has completed the deployment of high speed data, voice and QAM video in New York City on Casa System’s integrated CCAP platform.
This is the first production deployment, by any MSO in North America, of fully integrated CCAP services as defined by; channel diversity, channel density and the ability to simultaneously support data and QAM video on the same port. To date, Time Warner Cable has migrated hundreds of thousands of video subscribers to Casa System’s C100G integrated CCAP platform.
This migration has led to significant cost savings in capital and operational expense including savings in valuable rack space and power consumption. These power savings will continue to grow as more Video on Demand and Switched Digital Video subscribers are converted to integrated video on the Casa’s C100G. It’s anticipated that additional savings will also be gained through recovery of floor space due to the elimination of external QAM devices.
“What Time Warner Cable and Casa Systems have been able to accomplish is impressive,” said Jeff Heynen, principal analyst of broadband access and pay TV for Infonetics Research. “The race amongst the MSOs to deliver next generation services is very competitive. This milestone is a feather in the cap to both Time Warner Cable and Casa.”
