Harmonic CableOS virtualized cable access solutionCableOS solution enables 1Tennessee to cost-effectively deliver 1 gigabit internet speeds to its subscribers.

John Warmath, president and CEO at 1Tennessee, said: “Finding a 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.”

1Tennessee’s architecture is powered by a centralized CableOS solution with a software-based CMTS core and dense PHY shelves located in remote facilities. Relying on COTS servers and switches, the CableOS solution enabled 1Tennessee to quickly launch a 1Gbps tier offering to its customers.

The CableOS solution will also support 1Tennessee to enhance the broadband speed in the future.

Yaniv Ben-Soussan, VP of sales, North America cable, at Harmonic, said: “1Tennessee can exploit a centralized virtualized CMTS Core connected to dense PHY shelves in multiple hubs to enable seamless transition to remote PHY nodes in the future.”
