At the CableLabs Winter Conference, Casa Systems will demonstrate a virtualized fixed mobile convergence solution intended to enable cable operators to offer mobile services.

Casa's solution runs on Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) Xeon processor based server platforms. The proof of concept, featuring the Intel Puma 7 SoC Gateway, will demonstrate a WiFi call powered by Casa's distributed access architecture (DAA) and Axyom common core software solution, supporting both fixed and wireless network functions including virtual CCAP (fixed broadband), ePDG (WiFi) and PGW (mobile) services.

"Casa Systems has a long-standing track record of capitalizing on technology inflections in the cable industry," said Jerry Guo, CEO of Casa Systems. "This proof of concept furthers our ultra-broadband vision to deliver a full suite of network core solutions and technologies that allow our customers to meet market demands today and in the future."

Casa's multi-service mobile edge computing (MEC) Axyom platform leverages fixed infrastructure for mobile services and delivers "WiFi first" services. Based on open source technology, the Axyom solution is designed to accommodate deployments on-premises, at the metro edge or at a centralized data center. It features a suite of virtual network functions designed to help providers simplify their access networks with a single software architecture for security and management, including a common security framework for multi-dimensional scaling.
