Swedish triple-play provider Com Hem has selected Harmonic's CableOS virtualised CCAP solution to create what it says is the world's first virtualised cable access network.

stockholm 15 feb 2018As a software-based Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS), CableOS enables streaming-friendly broadband services while at the same time lowering space requirements and operating costs. CableOS is also the technology platform powering Com Hem's recently announced symmetrical 1.2Gbps service test being conducted in Stockholm.

"We worked closely with Harmonic on this project and are proud to have a platform that gives us the flexibility to continue development into the future," said Thomas Helbo, CTO at Com Hem.

"The cable industry is facing the challenge and opportunity of delivering increasingly higher broadband speeds, and therefore requires a cost-effective and sustainable approach for continued business growth," said Nimrod Ben-Natan, SVP and GM, Cable Edge Business, Harmonic. "We've partnered with Com Hem to show operators around the world that their internet speeds can be significantly increased while simultaneously reducing the space, power and cost constraints that have historically impeded growth. Being a software-based solution, CableOS is incredibly scalable and flexible, allowing Com Hem to flexibly add new features and extra capacity, without expensive hardware."
