Harmonic’s CableOS virtualized access solution is now powering over 2 million cable modems worldwide, of which over 1.4 million modems are connected through a distributed access architecture (DAA).

Enabling these DAA deployments are more than 10,000 Harmonic Remote-PHY devices now in operation worldwide, further solidifying the company’s market leading position and expertise in DAA.

Jeff Heynen, senior research director at Dell’Oro Group said, “We continue to see a steady shift among major cable operators towards virtual CCAP and DAA deployments. The combination of virtualization and DAA give operators the ability to scale more easily and have far more flexibility in how they design their networks and deliver services in the future.”

Harmonic’s virtualized access and DAA technologies is further highlighted by 11 new CableOS customer deployments this year, including recent wins with DNA in Finland, Canadian telecommunications providers Access Communications and Seaside Communications, and a leading operator in Asia, bringing the total number of deployments worldwide to 38.
