Harmonic (NASDAQ: HLIT) today announced the Pebble-2 distributed access architecture (DAA) device as the newest member of its market-leading CableOS® Cloud-Native Core Platform family. Harmonic’s Pebble-2 uniquely provides cable operators with a flexible foundation for Remote PHY, Remote MAC-PHY (R-MACPHY), DOCSIS 4.0 Frequency Division Duplex and Full Duplex DOCSIS deployments, while setting new industry-leading benchmarks for space, power and cooling efficiency.
“Our new Pebble-2 device features an agile, modular and unified design that supports multiple DAA deployment scenarios, providing operators with a universal solution for sustainable broadband service expansion,” said Nimrod Ben-Natan, senior vice president and general manager, broadband business at Harmonic. “As the race to 10G heats up, Pebble-2 is a must-have solution that brings unparalleled flexibility and power efficiency to operators, while offering a growth path for the future.”
Pebble-2 is the only DOCSIS DAA device that can be paired with a remote fiber switch (i.e., the company’s Jetty 60G-capable offering) in an outdoor node to enable converged fiber and DOCSIS services. The Pebble-2 DAA solution builds on Harmonic’s tradition of uniquely small form factor DAA devices, offering industry-leading power efficiency through advanced power management technology and multiple node segmentation options. Pebble-2 allows operators to extend the life of their installed base of optical nodes by using a node-specific adaptor without requiring any modifications to the legacy node platform.
Harmonic’s Pebble-2 DAA device will begin shipping in Q4 2022.
Harmonic's market-leading CableOS Platform powers more than 10 million cable modems for a growing number of innovative cable operators worldwide, including the largest operators in the U.S. and Europe, and leading service providers in Latin America.
Harmonic will demonstrate the Pebble-2 DAA device and its market-leading CableOS Cloud-Native Core Platform at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo, Sept. 20-22 in Philadelphia at booth 5037.
