Harmonic Touts Progress With Virtualized & Distributed Cable Network Deployments

February 04, 2019 / JEFF BAUMGARTNER

Harmonic said it gained some ground in Q4 with CableOS, its virtualized, software-driven form of the Converged Cable Access Platform (CCAP), as well as with deployments of a new class of nodes that fit into emerging distributed access architectures.And while those two initiatives are related, Harmonic Inc. (Nasdaq: HLIT) is seeing deployments of CableOS pick up more rapidly with small- and mid-sized MSOs that are using the platform in tandem with centralized CCAP chassis. Likewise, the vendor is seeing its larger cable customers start to ramp up the deployment of new node hardware for distributed access architecture (DAA) deployments that are poised to add the software/virtualization element further down the road.
