Casa Systems prepares for 'gigabit everywhere' customer demand

Casa Systems said it has announced its new DOCSIS® 3.1 compliant module for its carrier-class C100G and C40G Converged Cable Access Platforms (CCAP).

Called the DS8x192, the new module enables cable operators to support the full spectrum in the downstream direction delivering speeds up to 10 Gigabit per second (Gbps) comparable to 10G PON.

Casa Systems´ C100G award winning CCAP solution combines DOCSIS 3.1 CMTS and an MPEG video Edge-QAM in a high density, high availability 13 RU platform. The C100G and line cards support the CableLabs DOCSIS 3.1 standard, and are backward compatible with DOCSIS 3.0, eliminating the need to replace or upgrade existing hardware. Additionally, the C100G´s software defined architecture, industry-leading upstream density, and integrated video capabilities enable increased service groups on one chassis, at 30 percent lower OPEX.

Casa Systems expects the first DOCSIS 3.1 software release on the new DS8x192 module to be ready for customer lab testing in late third quarter.

Casa Systems has defined a new category of ultra broadband network edge devices based on disruptive technologies to target the growing market opportunity in interactive digital video and broadband IP services.
