Thu 15, 10 2020
Powerful Edge Compute Module Extends CableOS® Cloud-Native Platform
Harmonic (NASDAQ: HLIT) today announced powerful new edge cloud extensions to its industry-leading CableOS® access platform. These significant technological advances enable cable operators for the first time ever to deploy compute resources across their IP access networks and leverage distributed cloud-native applications such as 5G OpenRAN, flexible DOCSIS MAC and video CDN. Combining these new capabilities with the company’s market-leading cloud-native DOCSIS and recently announced fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) XGS and 10G EPON applications, Harmonic’s CableOS solution continues to raise the bar as the broadband industry’s most powerful and transformative access platform.
“Multi-access edge computing is going to play a pivotal role in the future of wireline and 5G wireless networks, revolutionizing the cable industry’s service delivery opportunities,” said Gil Katz, senior vice president, Cable Access Business Operations at Harmonic. “We’re excited to again break new ground, offering the first cloud-native solution capable of simultaneously running flexible MAC, Open Caching streaming video delivery and other critical applications at the deep edge of the access network. By extending our CableOS core platform closer to consumers, operators have a powerful new tool to optimize and monetize new broadband services.”
Harmonic’s new edge compute module, developed in partnership with Intel, is designed to be deployed in the same Ripple+ network edge platform (aka node) as the company’s remote-PHY and remote-OLT modules, extending CableOS cloud to the deep edge of the access network. Harmonic also recently announced that the new Ripple+ platform supports its groundbreaking “high-split” solution enabling full-spectrum, two-way gigabit services for cable operators.
Harmonic will showcase its industry-leading CableOS solution at the virtual SCTE•ISBE Cable-Tec Expo, Oct. 12-15. Demonstrations will include multiple cloud-native applications running simultaneously across centralized and distributed edge compute nodes.
The company will also provide expert insight into edge cloud innovations at the Cable-Tec Expo. Harmonic’s Vice President of Solutions and Product Management, Cable Access Business, Asaf Matatyaou, will engage in a panel discussion with Intel. The session “Utilizing Distributed Software and Multipurpose Computing for DAA” will take place in the Imagine Zone on Wednesday, Oct. 14 from 11 to 11:30 a.m. EDT.
