Harmonic Breathes New Life Into Cisco GS7000 Node

Harmonic has developed an upgrade kit that breathes new life into Cisco’s end-of-life GS7000 node, transforming it into a distributed access architecture (DAA) node that supports Flexible MAC Architecture (FMA) solutions for delivering next-gen broadband.

As part of Harmonic’s CableOS Cloud-Native Core Platform family, the Pebble DAA device features a uniquely small form factor that lowers space, power and cooling costs while easily adapting to any deployment scenario.

Integrating the Pebble DAA device with the GS7000 node is fast and simple - this upgrade can be performed efficiently in the field without needing to take down the node, replace the power supply or change the node lid. By offering turnkey solutions and supporting multiple access architectures, including PON, DAA and FMA, 

In addition to providing operators with a solution supporting the GS7000 node, this offers a seamless transition path from legacy integrated CMTS to a modern and advanced virtualized CMTS, helping them power the ultra-connected future of broadband, including high-split and symmetric 10G.

The upgrade kit will be available and in trials with leading operators by the end of this month.

Harmonic's CableOS Platform powers 6.1 million cable modems for a growing number of innovative cable and fiber operators worldwide, including the largest operators in North America and Europe, and leading service providers in Latin America and Asia.
