A new downstream module that adds full converged Cable Access Platform (CCAP)? functionality to its carrier class C10G Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS) platform now is available from Casa Systems.
According to Casa, which is showcasing the C10G at this week’s Cable Show, the module helps MSOs deploy DOCSIS, IPTV and MPEG video on a single chassis and increases channel density over existing CMTS modules on the market.??The DS8x96 module delivers 96 channels per port, including 32 channels of narrowcast and 64 channels of broadcast for a total of 768 channels per module. With the possibility of 11 primary DS8x96 modules and one protection module in a C10G, a combination of more than 8000 narrowcast and broadcast channels can be supported in the downstream direction within the C10G.?
Notes Founder/CEO Jerry Guo, “Our feature-rich CCAP release includes key features?such as hardware redundancy, software resiliency, IPDR data collection, XML configuration, and advanced routing features such as IS-IS, OSPF, BGP for IPv6 and MPLS. It is a sophisticated product that is simple to operate.”?
