1Tennessee, a broadband internet, TV and telecom cooperative in the Volunteer State, has deployed Harmonic's CableOS virtualised cable access solution for DOCSIS 3.0 and 3.1 broadband service delivery.

1Tennessee 16Jan2019The virtualised Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS) enables 1Tennessee to deliver 1 gigabit internet speeds to its growing subscriber base.

"We're always striving to deliver the fastest broadband speeds to our subscribers and looking for ways to bring the most value to our member-owners. Harmonic's CableOS virtualised cable access solution fulfils both of those requirements for us," explained John Warmath, president and CEO at 1Tennessee. "Finding a cutting-edge cable-access technology that will work with our existing plant while providing a cost-effective migration path to distributed R-PHY nodes was our top priority for this project. The CableOS solution greatly reduces the complexity of our network operations and met our tight deployment schedule for introducing next-generation gigabit services."

1Tennessee's architecture is powered by a centralised CableOS solution with a software-based CMTS core and dense PHY shelves located in remote facilities.

"Our CableOS offering offers the easiest path to DOCSIS 3.1 service delivery," said Yaniv Ben-Soussan, vice president of sales, North America cable, Harmonic. "As smaller-sized operators like 1Tennessee look for ways to increase their broadband capacity, they can exploit a centralised virtualised CMTS Core connected to dense PHY shelves in multiple hubs to enable seamless transition to remote PHY nodes in the future."
