Harmonic’s CableOS Solution Powers Broadband Expansion For Westman Communications

Westman Communications Group has upped its broadband capacity using Harmonic’s CableOS virtualized cable access solution in a distributed access architecture (DAA) with Harmonic’s Remote PHY (R-PHY) nodes.

Overcoming the space, power and operational constraints of legacy hardware products, the CableOS solution enables Westman to deliver DOCSIS 3.1 internet services to customers today and be ready for multi-gigabit broadband speeds in the future.

"We want to deliver enhanced next-generation services to our customers over the best network in the most cost-effective way possible," said Graham Johnston, CTO at Westman Communications. "Harmonic's flexible software-based CMTS with simplified licensing and R-PHY support, along with their extensive DAA deployment expertise, enabled us to launch the CableOS solution in under two months, a considerable feat for such a significant technology transformation."

Westman provides services across 35 Manitoba communities. With this deployment, Westman Communications joins the fast-growing group of communications providers, realizing the advantages of virtualization with Harmonic's CableOS solution. The CableOS offering serves more than 1 million cable modems globally.
