PETRUS GENERATES SAVINGS WITH NEXT-GEN BROADBAND ARCHITECTURE

The CableOS Platform with vCMTS and DAA gives Petrus a greener solution for faster broadband speeds and a reliable path to fiber.

SAVE ON POWER
& GAIN NETWORK AGILITY

Petrus is an independent telecommunications operator in Poland. It provides telephony and broadband access, digital cable television services, and a range of dedicated services for B2B customers. Power savings are critical for Petrus as Poland is expecting a 180% increase in electricity prices in 2023.

Petrus chose Harmonic’s CableOS® Cloud-Native Broadband Platform, deployed in a distributed access architecture (DAA), alongside Harmonic’s market-leading virtualized CMTS, its Shell Remote PHY (R-PHY) nodes and Reef R-PHY shelves. Thanks to the CableOS Platform, Petrus was able to not only upgrade DOCSIS to provide faster broadband speeds, it also reduced its headend footprint from 55 RU to 17 RU across three locations significantly lowering costs related to power, cooling, maintenance and cabling.

PROVIDE FASTER BROADBAND SPEEDS

Petrus was supported from comprehensive evaluation of the CableOS Platform and virtualized CMTS software in its lab, from integration to roll out, working hand-in-hand with Harmonic's trusted, local partner Klonex. Thanks to a seamless DOCSIS 3.1 upgrade, Petrus increased its bandwidth capacity to offer a new gigabit service tier to its subscribers. 

Petrus was able to unify its legacy and next generation services by placing headend functions closer to the edge for a superior quality of service for subscribers. With the CableOS Platform, Petrus now has a common framework to provide even more advanced broadband services going forward. 

SET A PATH TO CONVERGE
FIBER & DOCSIS

Petrus now has a solution to increase operational efficiency. It can manage, operate and configure its access network from a single physical location, versus having CMTS solutions in multiple locations. With a common, converged multi-access provider edge and multi-vendor interoperability, Petrus now has more options for network evolution. It also benefits from a greener, more agile foundation to converge fiber and DOCSIS networks, and a create a seamless path to DOCSIS 4.0.
