Harmonic is making its CableOS virtualised cable access software available as a cloud-native containerised and Kubernetes-orchestrated solution.

CableOS 23 oct 2018Building on the CableOS solution's original microservices software architecture, the cloud-native offering features an API-based software architecture that is integrated with third-party provisioning, cloud networking and orchestration applications.

The CableOS software core is designed to be deployed on either dedicated commercial off-the-shelf COTS servers or in cloud data centres, natively supporting both centralised, hub-collapsed CMTS architectures and distributed access architectures (DAA).

"Virtualising the CMTS core was our first step toward unleashing a more flexible and scalable cable access architecture — and we are pleased to see this solution deployed by a growing number of global cable operators," said Nimrod Ben-Natan, senior vice president and general manager, cable access business, at Harmonic.

He added: "Now, through cloud-native support, our CableOS solution delivers a new level of performance and density while enabling operational benefits, such as automated deployment and more granular system upgrades, in the delivery of competitive gigabit services. By aligning the CableOS solution with our companywide cloud-native strategy, Harmonic is leading a powerful new era of growth and efficiency for cable operators around the world."
