Parasat Cable TV taps Harmonic for broadband operations upgrade in Philippines

Philippines operator Parasat Cable TV has selected Harmonic’s CableOS Cloud-Native Core Platform to modernize its broadband operations.

Harmonic is expected to enable Parasat Cable TV to expand broadband capacity and bring internet access to subscribers. The Cable TV is replacing a legacy and proprietary Huawei Remote MAC-PHY with Harmonic’s standards-based DAA that includes the CableOS Platform and Reef DAA shelves.

“Harmonic’s CableOS Platform gives us a flexible, cost-efficient and easy-to-deploy option to simplify our DOCSIS network and operations,” said Elpidio M. Paras, CEO at Parasat Cable TV.

“With Harmonic’s state-of-the-art technology, we can confidently address network traffic spikes and meet the growing customer demand for increased bandwidth, ensuring the highest level of satisfaction for our subscribers,” he added.

The high-density Reef DAA shelves offer flexibility to handle bandwidth scaling at a low total cost of ownership, Harmonic said. Parasat Cable TV can now address capacity issues with greater agility and cost efficiency.

As a multi-access provider edge solution, the CableOS Platform also creates a path for Parasat Cable TV to deploy outdoor DAA nodes alongside the Reef DAA shelves and extend the deployment to FTTH using Harmonic’s virtualized PON solution.

Harmonic’s market-leading CableOS Platform powers more than 3 million cable modems for a growing number of innovative operators worldwide, including the largest cable operators in North America and Europe, and leading service providers in Latin America and Asia.

Harmonic will showcase its pioneering work in virtualization and access network technologies, including its virtualized PON solution, at SCTE•ISBE Cable-Tec Expo 2021 in Atlanta in Booth 1641.
