Swedish cable operator Com Hem is deploying Harmonic's (NASDAQ:HLIT) CableOS virtualized CCAP solution. The software-based cable modem termination system (CMTS) is designed to enable flexible delivery of high-speed broadband services while at the same time reducing space requirements and operating costs. Com Hem is deploying CableOS across its network.

"We worked closely with Harmonic on this project and are proud to have a platform that gives us the flexibility to continue development into the future," said Thomas Helbo, CTO at Com Hem.

CableOS is also supporting Com Hem's recently announced symmetrical 1.2 Gbps service test being conducted in Stockholm.

"The cable industry is facing the challenge and opportunity of delivering increasingly higher broadband speeds, and therefore requires a cost-effective and sustainable approach for continued business growth," said Nimrod Ben-Natan, senior vice president and general manager, Cable Edge Business, at Harmonic. "We've partnered with Com Hem to show operators around the world that their Internet speeds can be significantly increased while simultaneously reducing the space, power and cost constraints that have historically impeded growth. Being a software-based solution, CableOS is incredibly scalable and flexible, allowing Com Hem to flexibly add new features and extra capacity, without expensive hardware."
