Alabama-based cable operator CTV Beam is powering lightning-fast next-gen broadband services with Harmonic’s CableOS FTTx solution. PON capabilities on Harmonic’s CableOS Cloud-Native Core Platform offer a green path to 10G, enabling CTV Beam to meet growing consumer demand for ultra-fast broadband speeds as more people work from home, participate in remote learning, enjoy content on streaming apps, and receive telemedicine care.

CTV Beam has deployed Harmonic’s CableOS Platform in a distributed access architecture with virtualized CMTS software and Harmonic’s Remote PHY and OLT devices, including the Ripple node, Pebble RPD and Fin 10G SFP+ based OLT. Converging PON and HFC DOCSIS networks with a unified software, provisioning and management solution, the CableOS Platform streamlines CTV Beam’s operations, dramatically reduces time to market and lowers space, power and cooling costs.

CTV Beam is also using Harmonic’s CableOS Central analytics with AI and real-time network visibility to improve broadband service quality and network performance.
