Com Hem speeds up with Harmonic´s CableOS

The Swedish cable operator Com Hem is using with Harmonic’s CableOS the world's first virtualized Cable Access Network to deliver the Nordic region’s fastest broadband speeds. The company is deploying CableOS across its network, delivering high-speed broadband services to a rapidly growing number of connected devices.

The software-based Converged Cable Access Platform (CAPP) CableOS enables flexible delivery of high-speed broadband services while at the same time lowering space requirements and operating costs.

By deploying Harmonic’s CableOS across its network, Com Hem will be able to meet current demand for high-speed services and be positioned to meet increasing speed and service demands in the coming years. Indicative of the flexibility and expansion potential of the software-based architecture, CableOS is also the technology platform powering Com Hem’s recently announced symmetrical 1.2 Gbit/s service test being conducted in Stockholm.

“The cable industry is facing the challenge and opportunity of delivering increasingly higher broadband speeds, and therefore requires a sustainable approach for continued business growth,” said Nimrod Ben-Natan, senior vice president and general manager, Cable Edge Business, at Harmonic. “We’ve partnered with Com Hem to show operators around the world that their internet speeds can be significantly increased while simultaneously reducing the space, power and cost constraints that have historically impeded growth. Being a software-based solution, CableOS is very scalable and flexible, allowing Com Hem to flexibly add new features and extra capacity, without expensive hardware.”

Harmonic is showcasing its products az NAB Show 2018 (booth SU810) and at ANGA COM 2018 in Cologne (stand 7/620). (3/18)
