CNS’ new H.264 offering will include 10 HD and 112 SD channels, scheduled to be launched later this year to subscribers in Taipei and other regions in northern and southern Taiwan. CNS also utilizes a range of Harmonic’s HFC transmission solutions in its cable infrastructure.

HwaCom Systems, a Harmonic reseller in Taiwan, is providing local support and technical integration services for the upgrade.
