At the SCTE/ISBE Cable-Tec Expo 2019 in New Orleans, Harmonic (NASDAQ:HLIT) will demonstrate upgrades to its CableOS cloud-native cable access solution.

"Cloud-native software is turning the tide on cable access, enabling unprecedented broadband speeds, network scalability and operational efficiencies," said Asaf Matatyaou, vice president, solutions and product management, Cable Access Business, at Harmonic.

With our CableOS solution, operators are cost-effectively delivering multi-gigabit Internet speeds today, while also positioning themselves for the 10G future."

Harmonic's CableOS is a cloud-native cable modem termination system (CMTS) and Remote PHY system. It's designed to support traditional, centralized and new distributed architectures on a single-core server, as well as support both DOCSIS 3.1 and coming DOCSIS standard advancements.

Harmonic will demonstrate its low-latency feature designed to improve quality of experience for gamers. In addition, leveraging the data analytics available in the CableOS offering, the company will unveil an AI-driven 24/7 network diagnostic and capacity management service for cable operators.

The company will also showcase its VOS IP video solution. The VOS offering is intended to integrate and collapse the digital video delivery chain, including time shift and nDVR, to enable cable operators to create, deliver and monetize streaming HD and 4K resolution TV.
