DSA joins Gigabit broadband with Harmonic
October 31, 2019
Harmonic has announced that DSA, a non-profit antenna association that offers cable services in Denmark, will power its new Gigabit internet services with Harmonic’s CableOS virtualised cable access solution. Featuring a scalable, software-based architecture, the CableOS solution will enable DSA to overcome the space, power and operational complexities typically associated with hardware while unleashing-fast broadband speeds for its customers.
Harmonic’s local CableOS-certified partner, Infowise, will provide strategic consultation to help ensure a streamlined deployment.
“Consumer demand for faster internet speeds is growing, and the most practical way to address that trend is by moving to DOCSIS 3.1,” said Henrik Lindholm, chairman of DSA. “Harmonic’s CableOS solution will ensure our smooth transition to DOCSIS 3.1, allowing us to efficiently and cost-effectively increase broadband capacity through a flexible architecture to support the deployment of R-PHY in the future. It’s a win-win situation for our customers, who will gain access to higher speed internet service without seeing any extra cost.”
“As operators around the world move to DOCSIS 3.1 and roll out Gigabit internet offerings, it’s becoming obvious that choosing a software-based CMTS offers distinct advantages over hardware, including operational efficiency, accelerated introduction of new features and scalability,” said Gil Katz, senior vice president, Cable Access Business Operations at Harmonic. “Our CableOS offering features a unique virtualised architecture that empowers cable providers like DSA to deliver fast broadband speeds and significantly reduce their operating expenses.”
