1Tennessee has deployed Harmonic's (NASDAQ:HLIT) CableOS virtualized cable access solution for DOCSIS 3.0 and 3.1 broadband service delivery. The deployment is intended to enable 1Tennessee to deliver gigabit Internet speeds today, while also creating a foundation for future speed enhancements.

"We're always striving to deliver the fastest broadband speeds to our subscribers and looking for ways to bring the most value to our member-owners. Harmonic's CableOS virtualized cable access solution fulfills both of those requirements for us," said John Warmath, president and CEO at 1Tennessee. "Finding a cutting-edge cable access technology that will work with our existing plant while providing a cost-effective migration path to distributed R-PHY nodes was our top priority for this project. The CableOS solution greatly reduces the complexity of our network operations and met our tight deployment schedule for introducing next-generation gigabit services."

1Tennessee's architecture is powered by the centralized CableOS solution with a software-based CMTS core and PHY shelves located in remote facilities. It relies on COTS servers and switches. 1Tennessee has launched a 1 Gbps Internet offering based on the technology.

"Our CableOS offering offers the easiest path to DOCSIS 3.1 service delivery," said Yaniv Ben-Soussan, vice president of sales, North America cable, at Harmonic. "As smaller sized operators like 1Tennessee look for ways to increase their broadband capacity, they can exploit a centralized virtualized CMTS core connected to dense PHY shelves in multiple hubs to enable seamless transition to remote PHY nodes in the future."
