Seaside Communications Delivers With Harmonic’s CableOS Platform

Nova Scotia-based telco provider Seaside Communications is transforming its broadband operations with Harmonic’s CableOS Platform. In doing so it is leveraging the latest advancements in DOCSIS 3.1, DAA and Remote-PHY (R-PHY).

“As more people in Nova Scotia work from home and participate in distance learning, internet consumption is soaring and creating network congestion issues. To provide our customers with increased bandwidth and a superior experience, we needed an architecture that can scale rapidly,” said Shane Ferguson, director of network and CATV operations at Seaside. “Harmonic’s CableOS Platform allows us to swiftly and economically address capacity issues, leveraging a combination of new R-PHY nodes and existing HFC outdoor nodes. Thanks to Harmonic’s expertise, our broadband architecture is future-ready now.”

Seaside has deployed Harmonic’s software in a hybrid centralized and distributed access architecture tailored for its network, with Ripple R-PHY nodes and Reef R-PHY shelves that offer unparalleled flexibility.

“As the reliability of our networks becomes a necessity for daily lives, we are quite pleased to integrate the best-in-class virtualized access technology and R-PHY architecture for Seaside Communications, propelling them into the next evolution of DOCSIS access technologies,” said Joe Caruso, director of sales at Clearcable, Harmonic’s reseller that provided integration services.
