Taiwan Cable Co Goes 10G With Harmonic

Taiwan-based cable operator ICCDS is setting a pathway forward to 10G with Harmonic’s CableOS Cloud Platform.

The CableOS Platform converges fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) PON and HFC DOCSIS 3.1 networks while enabling fast broadband speeds as ICCDS addresses the growing demand for high-bandwidth applications such as VR and gaming.

“Bringing reliable multi-gigabit service to our customers is a top priority,” said Hsi Chin Lee, president at ICCDS. “Teaming up with Harmonic was a strategic choice to help us meet the modern high-speed demands of broadband subscribers. The CableOS Platform allows us to support FTTH PON and DOCSIS with a unified software, provisioning and management solution, guaranteeing that our infrastructure is future-ready for next-gen broadband, including 10G.”

The outdoor deployment model offers rapid implementation, enabling ICCDS to achieve a shorter time to market for rolling out broadband services. ICCDS is also using Harmonic’s CableOS Central cloud management service for real-time, data-driven monitoring. Harmonic’s reseller Cabletronics Broadband provided integration services.

“ICCDS is one of the first customers in the Asia-Pacific region to adopt a one-network solution to provide advanced broadband services that is agnostic to last mile connectivity,” said Gil Katz, svp, cable access business operations at Harmonic. “Operators today are eager to overcome space and power constraints to better address scale and efficiencies as they launch next-gen broadband services. ICCDS sets the perfect example of how to improve customer experience, with rapid service deployment, sustainability and long-term cost savings through network convergence.”
