Harmonic Transforms Broadband Service Delivery

Virtualized Cable Access and Video SaaS Solutions

With the steady rise in consumption of high-quality video and data services, cable operators and video service providers need to unleash faster broadband speeds while reducing space, power and other cost constraints. At the same time, they need to launch high-quality, low-latency video streaming services quickly, up to UHD HDR. At ANGA COM 2019, Harmonic will demonstrate its virtualized cable access solutions CableOS and VOS 360 video SaaS.

Harmonic will showcase next-generation capabilities for its field-proven CableOS virtualized cable access solution. Its the first software-based Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS) and end-to- end Remote PHY system, designed to support both centralized and distributed architectures. Harmonic's CableOS offering brings broadband access speeds to consumers and enterprises, while simultaneously overcoming space, power and other legacy hardware technology constraints.

At ANGA COM 2019, Harmonic will introduce new capabilities for CableOS that support an array of deployment architectures and significantly enhance power and space performance, leading to greater efficiencies for cable operators. Harmonic will also provide a sneak peek of a new low-latency feature for CableOS that drastically improves gamers' quality of experience.

VOS360 SaaS unifies the entire media processing chain, allowing operators to launch video streaming services faster, be more agile and simplify operations. By supporting a wide range of business models, VOS360 SaaS enables operators to create and deliver revenue-generating, broadcast-quality OTT streaming services. Harmonic's end-to-end UHD HDR solution supports the distribution of real-time content to any screen with QoE and low latency by employing the company's VOS360 SaaS for OTT delivery.

At ANGA COM 2019, attendees can see a demo of VOS360 SaaS delivering UHD HDR video for live sports streaming with fast channel deployment and low latency enabled by CMAF. Harmonic will demonstrate AI-based encoding and statistical multiplexing using the AVC video compression standard. With AI-based video compression, operators can achieve up to a 20 percent bit rate reduction. During the demo, there will be a side-by-side bit rate comparison of AVC with and without AI enhancements.

Asaf Matatyaou, vice president of solutions and product management of the Cable Access Business at Harmonic, will speak on a panel session on "Modern HFC Infrastructures for the 10 Gigabit Era" during the ANGA COM conference, providing unique insights into Remote PHY and virtualization deployment experiences.
