Finland: DNA deploys Casa platform

June 7, 2016

Casa Systems, a specialist in next-generation cable edge technology, has announced that DNA, a cable operator and pay TV provider in both cable and terrestrial networks in Finland, has deployed Casa’s forward-engineered C100G CCAP platform as part of its strategy to deliver higher network capacity and speeds to meet the growing ultra-broadband demands of its subscribers.

With Casa’s C100G, DNA recently set a European record, reaching live DOCSIS 3.1 downstream speeds of 3.055 Gbps in a speed record demonstration event during the launch of its advanced DNA Fibre Optic Plus cable network.

“As both consumers and businesses continue to expand their digital footprint, gigabit speeds are in high demand. The average speed of DNA’s fixed-line broadband subscriptions is already nearing 100 Mbit/s, which reveals the increasing need for faster speeds.” said Kari Ruopsa, head of cable networks for DNA Ltd. “Casa Systems C100G CCAP is a critical element in allowing us to realise the full potential of our cable network, bringing our subscribers the rich experiences of the gigabit world immediately and laying the foundation for our network to easily scale to multi-gigabit services moving forward .”
