Provide gigabit broadband to every community

Bring high-speed, digital broadband to rural areas with underdeveloped or no access to a fixed broadband network. Use a wireless DOCSIS solution with point-to-multi-point wireless access to offer broadband services to hard-to-reach communities cost-effectively.

You can deploy high-speed services without additional infrastructure investments. Deliver a superior quality broadband experience for Internet, voice, broadcast video, and VOD with Harmonic's high-efficiency DOCSIS over Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) solution.

Scale fast with efficiency

Quickly deploy gigabit broadband services to unserved or underserved customers at a fraction of the cost compared to fixed HFC or Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) network deployment.

Enhance network performance

Wireless internet service providers, cable and telecom operators can now deliver broadband speeds comparable to and sometimes even faster than existing fixed-line networks.

Deliver superior quality of service

Achieve at minimum 14 Gbps of total throughput and maximum 40 Gbps, depending on the number of integrated Remote PHY (R-PHY) units at a base station location and up to 2 Gbps per customer. 

A high-capacity solution for rural broadband

The CableOS® FWA solution is a gigabit fixed wireless point-to-multipoint platform that uses wireless sector antennas equipped with Harmonic's Pebble Remote DAA Devices (RPDs) anywhere within your other access technology footprints.

The system supports DOCSIS 3.0 and 3.1 transmission technologies, for a total supported bandwidth of 500 MHz per sector in each direction. The solution's unique design enables oxygen absorption, without denigrating the signal, to ensure consistency and reliability from point to point.

DOCSIS provisioning

Deliver next-gen broadband services using wireless radio technology and previously untapped radio spectrum coupled with DOCSIS 3.1, and remote DAA technologies.

Expand service reach

Fixed and mobile operators can off-load mobile traffic and provide triple-play all-IP services. Reach a wide service coverage area of up to 50km/30mi with a high performance FWA solution.

Space & power savings

Leverage a centralized core and powerful, high-efficiency RPDs to enable gigabit and multi-gigabit fiber-like connectivity at a fraction of the cost of fiber.
