Harmonic shows software Innovations
As industry transformation continues, Harmonic software innovations bring new efficiencies to media processing and networking.
Cable operators today are challenged to keep pace with a variety of industry disruptors, such as the rise of multiscreen viewing, and growing consumer demand for higher-resolution channels and faster networks. Harmonic’s software-based solutions, highlighted at ANGA COM 2017, address these transformations, enabling operators to migrate to high-speed gigabit networks to accommodate the launch of competitive triple-play offerings, and deliver pristine video quality on every screen, up to UHD-HDR, at the lowest possible bitrates. Virtualized CCAP Solution Eases Transition to Gigabit Capacity. As cable operators look to grow their broadband capacity to support consumer demand for new IP-based data, video and voice services, they need a cost-effective solution that provides the scalability to migrate to gigabit speeds. Harmonic’s CableOS virtualized CCAP solution features the industry’s first software-based Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS), the first end-to-end Remote PHY system, and leading RF port density, offering unprecedented scalability, agility and cost savings.
Supporting centralized and distributed architectures, the CableOS solution resolves space and power constraints in the headend and hub, eliminates dependence on hardware upgrade cycles, and reduces TCO. Software-Based media processing drives next-generation service delivery. Harmonic will show a comprehensive range of media processing solutions for cable operators at ANGA COM.
Harmonic’s software-based solutions offer increased flexibility and agility, making it easy for operators to adopt new formats and codecs, such as UHD-HDR and HEVC.
