​Harmonic Deploys Virtualized Cable Access Network For Com Hem

Harmonic’s software-based CableOS CCAP solution is behind the Nordic region’s fastest broadband speeds, the vendor claims.

Swedish operator Con Hem, is using Harmonic's CableOS virtualized CCAP solution to deliver high-speed broadband services to the connected devices of its customers.

The industry's only software-based Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS), CableOS enables delivery of high-speed broadband services while at the same time lowering space requirements and operating costs, Harmonic claims.

Thomas Helbo, CTO at Com Hem explained that by deploying CableOS across its network, the operator will be able to meet current demand for high-speed services and be positioned to meet increasing speed and service demands in the coming years.

CableOS is also the technology platform powering Com Hem's recently announced symmetrical 1.2 Gbit/s service test being conducted in Stockholm.

"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, svp and general manager, Cable Edge Business, at Harmonic. "We've partnered with Com Hem to show operators that their internet speeds can be significantly increased while simultaneously reducing the space, power and cost constraints that have historically impeded growth.”
