BRING NEXT-GEN BROADBAND TO EVERY SUBSCRIBER

Access Communications expands its broadband capacity using Harmonic's CableOS® cloud-native core platform, the market-leading solution for DAA.

DELIVER MORE HIGH-SPEED
BROADBAND SERVICES

Access Communications is a not-for-profit Canadian co-operative connecting the province of Saskatchewan for over 40 years. Today, the operator serves over 70,000 broadband subscribers in 235 communities. Access Communications chose Harmonic’s CableOS platform and deployed Harmonic’s Ripple Remote PHY (R-PHY) DAA node to seamlessly integrate with other third-party nodes in a distributed access architecture (DAA).

IMPROVE COSTS & ENHANCE NETWORK PERFORMANCE

Access Communications lowered the cost of its CMTS upgrades and reduced RF equipment in the headend by deploying Harmonic’s CableOS cloud-native core platform and Ripple remote PHY DAA nodes. The virtualized solution deployed in a DAA, helps decrease facilities costs and enhances network performance so Access Communications can deliver reliable, affordable, and faster broadband services to the hundreds of communities they serve. 

GAIN UPSTREAM CAPACITY &
SIMPLIFY OPERATIONS

With Harmonic’s Ripple R-PHY DAA node, Access Communications has the flexibility to upgrade its plant to mid-split and simply change diplexers in the field to maximize previous investments as it grows its upstream capacity. Access Communications also benefits from a simplified DOCSIS network, which enable it to condense three teams into a single team to handle video services, DOCSIS, network operations and delivery up to the node.
