Cloud Scale Transport for Cable MSOs
Multiple-systems operators (MSOs) face capacity and scalability challenges, not only with their coaxial cable plant, but also in their metro access, core and long-haul networks as more services and virtual TV functions are hosted in the cloud, along with high-definition and 4K content. Many are turning to distributed access architectures (DAA), typically Remote PHY or Remote MAC/PHY, to address these demands. Scaling the network’s capacity effectively to meet unrelenting bandwidth pressure is a continual challenge, but even more pressing is coping with the operational challenges of the mass deployment of fiber-deep access networks that DAA brings.
Infinera delivers unique cloud scale transport solutions for MSOs embracing any and all aspects of packet-optical DAA aggregation and transport, enabling them to roll out simple, scalable and highly versatile networks. With Infinera’s solutions, you can:
- Ensure lowest total cost of ownership in fiber-deep DAA networks
- Solve temporary traffic spikes in minutes with Instant Bandwidth
- Scale up and scale out your network like the cloud with Instant Network
- Boost capacity where your customers will notice
Get ready to support fiber and content closer to the subscriber with an open and flexible network with virtually infinite capacity. With FlexILS, the industry’s most open line system, support alien wavelengths or capacity from the DTN-X Family of Open ICE-based terabit transport.
