Video delivery technology and services provider Harmonic has announced a number of productivity enhancements to its CableOS virtualised cable access solution.

Harmonic CableOSLogoCableOS software offers support for the latest generation of 1-RU Intel server CPUs and 100G NIC, providing, said Harmonic, a double boost in throughput. By running on Intel servers, CableOS software is designed to allow operators to keep pace with the latest developments and performance improvements in IT, breaking out of the cycle of using custom hardware-based CMTS platforms.

The enhancements also include a low-latency mode, said to enable significantly enhanced video game quality of experience and virtual segmentation with network-wide QoS capabilities. There is also a simultaneous support of centralised and distributed architectures on a single core server and interoperability with standard-compliant, third-party Remote PHY devices, as well as integration of the CableOS Pebble-1 Remote PHY Device into third-party nodes.

Harmonic has also added virtual segmentation with network-wide QoS capabilities to the CableOS solution, allowing operators to increase bandwidth on existing coaxial cable to feed Remote PHY devices without deploying fibre to the new segmentation site.
