Harmonic's software-based solutions, highlighted at a recent industry exhibition, addressed the transformations, enabling operators to migrate to high-speed gigabit networks to accommodate the launch of competitive triple-play offerings, and deliver pristine video quality on every screen, up to UHD-HDR, at the lowest possible bitrates.

As cable operators look to grow their broadband capacity to support consumer demand for new IP-based data, video, and voice services, they need a cost-effective solution that provides the scalability to migrate to gigabit speeds.

Harmonic's CableOS virtualized CCAP solution features the industry's first software-based cable modem termination system (CMTS), the first end-to-end remote PHY system, and leading RF port density, offering unprecedented scalability, agility, and cost savings.

Supporting centralized and distributed architectures, the CableOS solution resolves space and power constraints in the headend and hub, eliminates dependence on hardware upgrade cycles, and reduces TCO.

Harmonic's software-based solutions offer increased flexibility and agility, making it easy for operators to adopt new formats and codecs, such as UHD-HDR and HEVC.
