Deliver Better Broadband and Realize Operational Savings with CableOS
Harmonic will showcase its field-proven CableOS cable access solution, the industry’s first cloud-native Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS) and end-to-end Remote PHY system. The CableOS offering enables better broadband services and greater operating efficiencies through simultaneous support for traditional, centralized and new distributed architectures on a single-core server, as well as support for both DOCSIS 3.1 today and coming DOCSIS standard advancements.
Highlighting the service innovation velocity possible through CableOS’s cloud-native technology, Harmonic will demonstrate its revolutionary low-latency feature that dramatically improves quality of experience for gamers. In addition, leveraging the rich data analytics available in the CableOS offering, the company will unveil a groundbreaking new AI-driven 24/7 network diagnostic and capacity management service for cable operators.
Launch Streaming IP Video Services Faster
At SCTE Cable-Tec Expo, Harmonic will also showcase its acclaimed VOS solution that enables operators to launch new IP video services faster, be more agile and simplify operations — essential for business success in the increasingly competitive pay-TV market. The VOS offering integrates and collapses the digital video delivery chain, including time shift and nDVR, enabling cable operators to easily create, deliver and monetize pristine-quality streaming HD, and 4K resolution TV.
Boost Video Quality-of-Experience with Content-Aware Encoding
Harmonic will also showcase its award-winning EyeQ content-aware encoding (CAE) at the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo. EyeQ CAE enables operators to launch streaming TV with up to 50% less bandwidth consumption on their core and access delivery networks and up to 50% less nDVR storage requirements.
