Teleste announced that its Remote PHY and video platform has been implemented within a new distributed access architecture by the Danish operator Kabelplus. The deployment was carried out in co-operation with a local system integrator Conscia Denmark, and provides Kabelplus an opportunity to expand access throughout the whole of Denmark.
According to a statement, based on Remote PHY technology and a separate auxiliary video core, the deployed platform utilizes Teleste’s DAN300 Remote PHY node and Luminato video headend together with the existing Cisco cBR8 CCAP core of Kabelplus.
With the Cisco CMTS centrally located in Denmark, the solution enables Gigabit broadband services in DOCSIS 3.1 networks of different sizes around the country. The deployment leverages Teleste’s Luminato video headend as an auxiliary video core, handling the distribution of video over the distributed access network. The flexible, high-capacity video headend is ideal for serving versatile networks and ideally suited for varying channel mixes, contend the companies.
“We are pleased to see that the interoperable Cisco CCAP core and Remote PHY technology from Teleste together with the separate Teleste Luminato auxiliary core is able to provide us with a future-proof and tested platform for carrying out gigabit and video services for our subscribers in the coming years,” stated Henrik Lind, CTO, Kabelplus.
“Getting the Teleste Remote PHY device working with the Cisco cBR8 was easy in my opinion," added Thomas Bützau, System Engineer, Conscia Denmark. "The interoperability is great, thanks to the CableLabs standards, and both Teleste and Cisco are eager to help, if needed. The guys at Teleste deserve a lot of credit for their level of commitment. They clearly want the customer experience to be as good as possible. They are a pleasure to work with.”
Hanno Narjus, head of Teleste’s Networks business, concluded, “With distributed access deployments gradually growing, it is important to see that the architecture means more than just another devices in field. What the architecture actually provides is a flexible platform for Gigabit broad-band and video services to subscribers today, and also a solid stepping stone for further technology upgrades towards the cable industry’s 10G vision. Working with Kabelplus and Conscia has given us an exciting opportunity to be part of building a high-performance cable network and a networked society, where both data and video delivery are handled in an innovative, future-proof way."
Teleste will be promoting its distributed access and video solutions at ANGA COM DIGITAL, June 8-10.
