SAN JOSE, Calif.

Coupling Harmonic’s industry-leading cOS™ virtualized broadband core with its Wharf switch and Fin optical line terminals (OLTs), DOCOMO PACIFIC is quickly bringing high-speed, reliable fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) internet to more than 10,000 residents across Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands.

“Rolling out FTTP allows us to address electrical power volatility and grounding challenges, reduce operating costs and ensure a reliable, always-on ultra high-speed broadband service for subscribers,” said Mike Smith, executive vice president of network operations at DOCOMO PACIFIC. “Harmonic’s virtualized broadband platform put us on a fast track to 10G fiber. In less than five weeks, Harmonic successfully designed, architected, delivered and deployed a fiber-to-the-home solution, which is unprecedented in the broadband world.”

Harmonic’s cOS virtualized core software and Wharf hardened switch enable DOCOMO PACIFIC to reach underserved and rural communities in addition to densely populated residential and business districts. Adopting Harmonic’s FTTP solutions minimizes new construction, permitting and building constraints, and reduces the service provider’s costs by simplifying the deployment of OLT shelves in outdoor cabinets and remote OLT devices in outdoor nodes. 

Harmonic’s cOS Central provides real-time insights into network health and AI-based, actionable recommendations to proactively ensure reliable, always-on broadband service and reduce truck rolls.
