Harmonic’s CableOS adds DOCSIS, PON applications

Cloud-native platform dynamically orchestrates containerised applications

Harmonic has announced further advancements to its CableOS solution, including new containerised DOCSIS CMTS and passive optical network (PON) applications, enabling converged delivery of broadband-over-cable and fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) services.

Based on open-standard Kubernetes, the Cloud-native platform dynamically orchestrates containerised applications and is designed to be flexibly deployed across headend, data centre and Cloud environments.

CableOS also takes advantage of its Cloud-native platform to support converged DOCSIS CMTS and FTTH PON OLT applications, and additional containerised access applications such as DOCSIS 4.0 in the future.

Nimrod Ben-Natan, senior VP and general manager, Cable Access Business at Harmonic, said: “Building on Harmonic’s established leadership position with its CableOS offering, we are further unleashing the power of Cloud-native architectures.

“DOCSIS CMTS and PON OLT are now simply containerised CableOS applications that run in parallel on the CableOS platform. We are delivering on the promise of smarter and simpler operations for our cable customers who are increasingly requesting converged solutions for cable- and FTTH-based broadband services.”
