Harmonic announced that 1Tennessee, a broadband, TV and telecom cooperative in Tennessee, has deployed Harmonic’s CableOS cable access solution for DOCSIS 3.0 and 3.1 broadband service delivery.
CableOS 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.”
