SAFnet Powers Broadband Delivery With Harmonic

Danish broadband operator SAFnet has deployed Harmonic’s CableOS platform for 10G-capable fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) XGS-PON service delivery.

Harmonic’s unique multi-access, virtualized edge cloud approach to PON gives us the confidence to deliver ultra-fast, reliable internet services to our subscribers and support high-bandwidth applications such as VR and low-latency gaming,” said Jørgen Steen Jensen, CEO at SAFnet. “By unlocking the power of the cloud and moving network functions closer to the edge, we have optimized our network resources and successfully alleviated bottlenecks caused by surges in network traffic.”

SAFnet has deployed Harmonic’s CableOS Platform in a converged PON and HFC DOCSIS architecture. The tech enables the operator to support PON and DOCSIS with a unified software, provisioning and management solution, ensuring the infrastructure is future-ready for 10G.

“Right now, a major broadband network transformation is underway as we collectively move towards multigigabit connectivity. Harmonic is well positioned to boost the 10G revolution through multi-access, virtualized edge cloud and PON capabilities on our CableOS Platform,” said Gil Katz, SVP, cable access business operations at Harmonic. “CableOS sets SAFnet on track for next-gen broadband service delivery with market-leading software and high-performance network edge devices capable of delivering 10G symmetric speeds.”
