Mascon Selects Harmonics CableOS Platform to Address the Boom in Broadband Usage

Harmonic (NASDAQ: HLIT) today announced that Canadian cable operator Mascon, a Telus brand, is delivering superior broadband experiences to subscribers with Harmonic's industry-leading CableOS® Cloud-Native Core Platform. Partnering with Harmonic, the leader in virtualized access technology and distributed access architectures (DAA), Mascon can swiftly and economically address broadband capacity issues, leveraging innovations in vCMTS and Remote-PHY (R-PHY) technologies to address demands for faster internet speeds and offer a better quality of experience. Harmonic's reseller Clearcable ensured a smooth installation.

"Broadband usage is surging. To keep the network running smoothly, we need a flexible, scalable and cost-efficient solution," said Sheldon Mason, manager, field support at Mascon. "Harmonic's CableOS Platform allows us to address the immediate need for capacity while at the same time freeing critical infrastructure resources. In the future, we can reconfigure the system to R-PHY nodes to realize additional opex savings and operational efficiencies."

Mascon has deployed the CableOS Platform in a centralized architecture, with Reef R-PHY shelves that offer rapid bandwidth scaling at a low total cost of ownership. Harmonic's platform saves the operator space, power and cooling costs. Additionally, Harmonic's CableOS Platform supports both centralized and distributed access architectures, paving the way for Mascon to deploy DAA in the future for even more efficient broadband service delivery.

Clearcable provides software, solutions and support to ISPs throughout the Americas. "Working in close cooperation with the Mascon team in Vanderhoof, British Columbia, Clearcable remotely integrated the Harmonic CableOS Platform into their operations. Mascon is a long-term partner with Clearcable for operational support systems and services, including provisioning and network monitoring," said Dave Jalowica, director of technical services at Clearcable.

"Our CableOS Platform makes broadband networks greener, lowering power consumption to unprecedented levels while helping operators scale efficiently," said Gil Katz, senior vice president, Cable Access Business Operations at Harmonic. "As Mascon's broadband infrastructure evolves, the CableOS Platform will ensure flexibility, agility and cost savings by enabling continuous software enhancements and instant capacity expansion."

Harmonic's market-leading CableOS Platform powers more than 2.6 million cable modems for a growing number of innovative cable operators worldwide, including the largest operators in the U.S. and Europe and over 25 rural broadband providers in North America.
