Bresnan Communications has increased its VOD service capacity with the addition of Harmonic’s Narrowcast Service Gateway (NSG) 9000 and 9116 edge QAMs with Privacy Mode encryption. The NSG’s integrated support for real-time encryption at the network edge allows Bresnan to protect VOD assets as they are transmitted to the home. The versatility of the NSG 9000 universal edge QAM platform also provides Bresnan with the flexibility to migrate to a modular cable modem termination system (M-CMTS) architecture in the future. Both NSG models are used to perform a variety of other functions at the edge, including multiplexing, program routing, PCR restamping, QAM modulation and RF up-conversion.
