Harmonic Unveils Edge Computer Module Extending CableOS Cloud-Native Platform

SAN JOSE, Calif.—Harmonic announced extensions to its CableOS access platform, including a major enhancement that enables cable operators to deploy compute resources via their IP access networks and leverage distributed cloud-native applications, such as 5G OpenRAN, flexible DOCSIS MAC and video CDN.

The combination of the new features and its cloud-native DOCSIS and fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) XGS and 10G EPON applications, raises the bar for access platforms, the company said.

“Multi-access edge computing is going to play a pivotal role in the future of wireline and 5G wireless networks, revolutionizing the cable industry’s service delivery opportunities,” said Gil Katz, senior vice president, Cable Access Business Operations at Harmonic. “We’re excited to again break new ground, offering the first cloud-native solution capable of simultaneously running flexible MAC, Open Caching streaming video delivery and other critical applications at the deep edge of the access network.”

Harmonic developed its new edge compute module in partnership with Intel, the company said. It is designed to be deployed in the same Ripple+ network edge platform (also called a node) as the company’s remote-PHY and remote-OLT modules. Doing so extends CableOS cloud to the deep edge of the access network. 

The company is featuring CableOS and its new extensions at the ongoing virtual SCTE-ISBE Expo, Oct. 12-15.

Asaf Matatyaou, Harmonic vice president of solutions and product management, Cable Access Business, will take part in a panel discussion with Intel. The session “Utilizing Distributed Software and Multipurpose Computing for DAA” is scheduled to occur in the Imagine Zone, Oct. 14, from 11-11:30 a.m. ET.

Verizon 4G LTE-based Home Internet maximizes rural availability edge

  • Verizon extended the availability of its 4G LTE-based Home Internet, and is now available in 189 markets
  • This allows Verizon to further capitalize on its advantage over the other major US wireless carriers in offering rural 4G.
  • Insider Intelligence publishes hundreds of insights, charts, and forecasts on the Connectivity & Tech industry with the Connectivity & Tech Briefing. You can learn more about subscribing here.

Verizon announced that its 4G LTE-based Home Internet service is now available in 189 markets across 48 states. In July 2020, Verizon began rolling out the service in a handful of markets across the Southeast.

The service will cost $60 per month for non-Verizon wireless customers, or $40 per month for those with Verizon mobile plans (but only if they already pay more than $30 per month). Verizon promises typical download speeds of 25–50 Mbps. 

By extending the range of services available to rural customers, Verizon can capitalize on its competitive advantage in rural service availability. Though Verizon has mostly focused until now on rolling out 5G in urban areas, it’s placed a heavy emphasis on making 4G service available for rural markets. 

According to Opensignal data collected between March 16 and June 13 of 2019, Verizon had the highest rate of 4G availability in rural regions of all the major US wireless carriers. Verizon’s advantage is more pronounced in the most rural areas: In “remote rural” areas (defined as territory that is more than 35 miles from an urbanized area) Verizon customers experienced 83.5% 4G availability, compared with 77.4% for T-Mobile, 75.5% for AT&T, and 67.3% for Sprint.

The LTE-based Home Internet service will appeal most to those in the rural US who don’t have an option for high-speed fixed broadband
