New Containerized Version of the CableOS™ Offering Successfully Deployed by a Tier-1 Cable Operator

SAN JOSE, Calif. Oct. 22, 2018 — Harmonic (NASDAQ: HLIT) today announced that its groundbreaking CableOS™ virtualized cable access software is available as a cloud-native containerized and Kubernetes-orchestrated solution, enabling new levels of scalability, reliability and efficiency for operators. Building on the CableOS solution’s original microservices software architecture, the new cloud-native offering will be a key enabler of the broader SDN and NFV transformation beginning to take hold in the cable industry. Featuring a rich and extensible API-based software architecture that is integrated with third-party provisioning, cloud networking and orchestration applications, the CableOS cloud-native solution has been successfully deployed by a tier-1 cable operator.

“Virtualizing the CMTS core was our first step toward unleashing a more flexible and scalable cable access architecture — and we are pleased to see this solution deployed by a growing number of global cable operators,” said Nimrod Ben-Natan, senior vice president and general manager, cable access business, at Harmonic. “Now, through cloud-native support, our CableOS solution delivers a new level of performance and density while enabling operational benefits, such as automated deployment and more granular system upgrades, in the delivery of competitive gigabit services. By aligning the CableOS solution with our companywide cloud-native strategy, Harmonic is leading a powerful new era of growth and efficiency for cable operators around the world.”

The CableOS software core can be deployed on either dedicated COTS servers or on cloud compute data centers, natively supporting both centralized hub-collapsed CMTS architectures and distributed access architectures (DAA). The new containerized and Kubernetes-orchestrated CableOS solution has been successfully deployed in both of these architectures. With a growing number of cable operators planning to migrate to both SDN/NFV core networks and DAA, Harmonic’s CableOS offering is uniquely positioned as a powerful bridge to cable’s future that is real and deployable today.

Harmonic will demonstrate CableOS at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2018, Oct. 22-25, in Atlanta at booth 2145. Further information about Harmonic and the company’s solutions is available at www.harmonicinc.com.
