Smarter broadband solutions for PON & FTTH

The modular CableOS® solution leverages cloud-native software to enable multiple deployment possibilities. Install a small form factor (SFP+) 10G OLT optical module in a switch at any location, or in our Pebble remote Ethernet device in a distributed access architecture (DAA), and turn any available SFP+ switch port or remote Ethernet device into a remote optical line terminal (OLT).

As cable operators seek solutions to deliver the high-speed broadband to power our ultra-connected world, the competition for subscribers grows. With the CableOS PON solution, you can evolve your network with more flexibility to meet changing network requirements and lay the foundation for 10G.



A single platform for

Gain agility using a single platform to support multiple access technologies, including variants of PON (XGS-PON, EPON), and HFC DOCSIS networks. With Harmonic’s cross-platform and edge cloud enabled zero-touch provisioning solution you alleviate optical network terminal (ONT) provisioning issues and leverage an interoperability standard for optical line terminals (OLTs) and ONTs from different vendors to coexist.

Take a greener path
to 10G PON

Offer 10G symmetric speeds to your subscribers for a premium quality of service without extensive hardware investment. The CableOS solution is designed to run greener with market-leading software and high-performance network edge devices. You get greater space, power, and cooling savings at the headend with less integration effort as you move to next-gen architectures.


Network convergence to
simplify operations

Migrate your high-usage residential or business customers to Fiber-to-the-Anything (FTTx) with our multi-access, cloud-native CableOS Broadband Platform and industry-standard Ethernet switch technology. You can converge your network infrastructures and upgrade the broadband access network without regrettable spend in legacy products avoiding multiple pillars of purpose built hardware solutions.


Your path to PON starts
with market-leading CableOS

Power the services for immersive experiences, like virtual and augmented reality, or low latency for gaming and minimal buffering for high-bandwidth applications.

Multi-tenancy & feature velocity

Deploy a multi-access, cloud-native broadband platform that hosts multiple applications including a virtualized optical line terminal (vOLT) and virtualized broadband network gateway (vBNG). The CableOS virtualized Broadband Provisioning Application (vBPA) enables zero-touch provisioning for your high bandwidth low latency applications.

Flexible compute & cloud edge

A software-based approach provides a more flexible compute architecture to alleviate bottlenecks caused by surges in network traffic. With CableOS you simultaneously optimize your resources and unlock the power of the cloud to move network functions closer to the edge.

Designed to evolve with ease

Leverage high-performance, Commercial off-the-Shelf (COTS) servers and the CableOS Broadband Platform to save up to 75% on power and space costs. Gain greater scalability, agility, resiliency and security to simplify upgrades and get the latest features in a simple click.
