Harmonic streamlines transition to all-IP cable infrastructure

MUMBAI: Harmonic, which offers video delivery infrastructure, has launched NSG Pro, a powerful new Converged Cable Access Platform (CCAP) that offers high-density Universal EdgeQAM capabilities and an easy upgrade path to future integrated Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS) capabilities.


The NSG Pro provides Qam density and the ability to converge linear video, on-demand video, and data onto a single system. Unlike competitive offerings, NSG Pro provides cable operators with a flexible upgrade path towards full CCAP and an all-IP infrastructure, while minimising operational expenses, power requirements, and rack space requirements.


Harmonic senior VP, GM of the Edge and Access business unit Nimrod Ben-Natan said, "NSG Pro leverages Harmonic‘s expertise in intelligent function integration to combine downstream services and an easy upgrade path to full CCAP - supporting Docsis 3.0 and beyond - in a unified CCAP chassis, enabling operators to redefine their cable architectures. As the industry‘s first true CCAP-compliant platform, NSG Pro positions Harmonic for success in the changing CMTS market."


Conforming to CCAP specifications, NSG Pro offers cable operators the easiest path to full CCAP by supporting Universal EdgeQAM capabilities and integrated CMTS capabilities in the future via line cards that can be added to the same chassis.


NSG Pro accelerates service deployments by enabling seamless integration into an operator‘s existing infrastructure. With significant expertise gained from the company‘s edgeQam position, Harmonic Professional Services can help cable operators identify how and when to move towards full CCAP and ensure smooth deployment of downstream services with NSG Pro.


To complement the company‘s CCAP initiative, Harmonic is also introducing a new family of compact forward-path transmitter modules featuring ultra-high-density optics. Part of the SUPRALink and PWRLink product lines, the new transmitters deliver space savings, low power consumption, and optimized fiber usage and network efficiency. Together, the CCAP and high-density transmitter solutions enable cable operators to realise benefits across their operations by optimising real estate, controlling power costs, and supporting increased bandwidth capacity for advanced services such as high-speed data, IP video, and time-shift TV.
