Deliver Next-Gen Broadband Services with vCMTS and DAA

Comporium addresses bandwidth needs and provides OTT video with our CableOS® cloud-native core platform.

Meeting Capacity Needs
With The Agility to Adapt

Comporium is a leading cable operator in South Carolina serving several counties with internet, voice, video and security offerings. The company wanted to improve the quality of the broadband experience for its subscribers that are using more bandwidth-heavy apps every  day. 

A cloud-native Cable Access solution using vCMTS

Comporium wanted to offer faster internet speeds to its customers and boost customer satisfaction with the introduction of a new IP video streaming service. The company was looking to upgrade to DOCSIS 3.1 and wanted to leverage the full spectrum with a cost-efficient solution that easily scales. 
Harmonic’s CableOS Cloud-Native Core Platform was the answer with our virtualized CMTS deployed in distributed access architecture. CableOS is a multitenant platform with a rich API for easy application integrations. The platform provided a simple solution for DOCSIS upgrades that will help reduce cost of ownership for the long-term. The CableOS platform helped eliminate racks of hardware, lowered the energy footprint and enabled gigabit broadband for Comporium's subscribers.
The CableOS platform also allowed Comporium to maximize bandwidth efficiency for IPTV service delivery. Using Harmonic’s Electra® XT high-density transcoder, Comporium has support for both IP and legacy services. 
 

Flexibilty for Network Evolution
with DAA and R-PHY

Comporium deployed Harmonic's industry-leading Ripple Remote PHY (R-PHY) nodes to deliver legacy services over an IP-based network. RF combining and splitting is also eliminated from the headend by moving the RF processing from the headend to the node. The distributed access architecture (DAA) deployment further reduced power, space, cooling and cabling requirements for Comporium.
The CablsOS platform gives Comporium a robust solution to enhance network performance and facilitate its operational agility. Migrating to DAA with the CableOS edge network platform provides Comporium with a flexible compute architecture to evolve the access network as needed. Comporium can now grow its business with confidence to bring the next generation of internet and video services to its subscribers.
