Harmonic, an expert in video delivery technology and cable access virtualisation, has announced that Com Hem, Sweden’s leading provider of television, Internet and fixed-telephony services, is using Harmonic’s CableOS virtualised CCAP solution to deliver the Nordic region’s fastest broadband speeds. The software-based Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS), CableOS enables flexible delivery of high-speed broadband services while at the same time lowering space requirements and operating costs.
“We worked closely with Harmonic on this project and are proud to have a platform that gives us the flexibility to continue development into the future,” said Thomas Helbo, CTO at Com Hem.
“The cable industry is facing the challenge and opportunity of delivering increasingly higher broadband speeds, and therefore requires a cost-effective and sustainable approach for continued business growth,” said Nimrod Ben-Natan, senior vice president and general manager, Cable Edge Business, at Harmonic. “We’ve partnered with Com Hem to show operators around the world that their internet speeds can be significantly increased while simultaneously reducing the space, power and cost constraints that have historically impeded growth. Being a software-based solution, CableOS is incredibly scalable and flexible, allowing Com Hem to flexibly add new features and extra capacity, without expensive hardware.”
