Harmonic announced that Canadian telecommunications company Access Communications has deployed Harmonic's CableOS platform to transform its broadband operations, lower opex with green technology and deliver a superior subscriber experience.
As a specialist in virtualized access and distributed access architectures (DAA), Harmonic says its technology enables Access Communications to expand broadband capacity with increased simplicity, plus unparalleled flexibility and cost-efficiency.
"Access Communications is a not-for-profit co-operative connecting the province of Saskatchewan for over 40 years. Delivering reliable, affordable and faster broadband services to our communities is critically important for us," said Jeffrey De Sarno, chief technology officer at Access Communications. "We chose Harmonic, the market leader in virtualized access technology and distributed access architectures, because it is driving a smarter, more flexible broadband future. Leaning into Harmonic's expertise, we are rapidly building out our next-gen access network."
Access Communications says it adopted Harmonic's software-based CableOS Platform in a DAA architecture deployed with the Ripple R-PHY node, as well as third-party nodes, allowing swift capacity improvement and extending the life of its hybrid fiber-coaxial network. Using the CableOS Platform, Access Communications can transition to the next generation of broadband networks while consuming significantly less power than traditional solutions.
"Access Communications is expanding its high-speed digital highway that makes internet accessible, reliable and affordable for everyone, and we are honored to be part of their efforts," said Gil Katz, senior vice president, cable access business operations at Harmonic. "Growing network capacity is easy with our CableOS Platform, which offers efficient bandwidth scaling and green technology to reduce power and operational costs."
