Teleste recently tested its remote PHY node technology in cooperation with Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO), an initiator of the Open Source RPD development project with CableLabs. In the tests, the interoperability of Teleste's remote PHY-enabled node, AC9100 Neo RPD, was demonstrated alongside Cisco's cBR8 CCAP core.

"Distributed access architecture (DAA) offers cable operators worldwide the ability to provide scale, flexibility and performance for their cable access networks," said Daniel Etman, director of product marketing, Cable Access Business, Cisco. "Remote PHY is a foundational, standards-based architecture that enables a transition to virtualized access solutions and offers significant TCO benefits. We are pleased to work with Teleste within the ecosystem of OpenRPD to make sure that cable operators will be able to benefit from the incremental growth potential of this transformation."

"From previous DOCSIS implementations, we have learned that open, standards-based development is the key to success for both operators and vendors," said Hanno Narjus, SVP of network products at Teleste. "Interoperability of RPD devices and CCAP cores from different technology vendors guarantees that MSOs will be able to safely invest in future development of their networks and services."

Teleste's AC91000 Neo will be showcased at the SCTE/ISBE Cable-Tec Expo 2017 in Denver at Cisco's booth. The same RPD in North American strand-mounted format, called ICON9000 RPD, will be demonstrated at the Teleste Intercept booth. The company is also showing its modular ICON9000 RPD-Ready node, which can host plug-in RPD modules.
