Casa Systems announced its new multi-service virtualized core designed to enable CCAP, 4G/5G cellular, WiFi and fixed telecommunications network functions. In addition, the company will debut a Virtual CCAP (vCCAP) demonstration over a distributed access node at the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo in Philadelphia.

Casa's Virtual CCAP leverages the company's Axyom software architecture, which is designed to provide a common security framework to allow independent scaling of control and data plane functions via modular components to port existing services to COTS hardware.

Casa's vCCAP product will include virtual MAC layer data processing, control and management functions. Casa's family of distributed access nodes for PHY layer processing in cable networks are supported by both the new vCCAP product and Casa's chassis-based CCAPs (C100G/C40G). Casa's DAA solutions are designed to deliver DOCSIS 3.1 features, including full spectrum OFDM, as well as narrowcast and broadcast video in a distributed access architecture.

In addition to the vCCAP demonstration, Casa will also showcase its Video over DAA, DOCSIS 3.1, Axyom LTE-based WiFi calling, and secure WiFi MDU solutions.
