Transitioning to Distributed Access Architecture
In a statement, Harmonic said that as part of the upgrade process, Melita plans to transition its HFC DOCSIS network to a distributed access architecture using Harmonic's CableOS Platform, virtualized CMTS software, and Ripple Remote-PHY node. This architectural shift will involve moving core functions and fibre deeper into the network, resulting in faster and more reliable internet access for subscribers.
Moreover, this transformation will lead to lower energy consumption and significantly reduce space and power costs for the operator. To ensure the highest level of broadband service quality and network performance, Melita will also utilize Harmonic's CableOS Central analytics, which leverages artificial intelligence and streaming telemetry.
