Harmonic today announced that telecommunications service provider Claro Perú, an América Móvil company, is powering its next-gen broadband services with Harmonic’s CableOS® Cloud-Native Core Platform. As the industry leader in virtualized solutions for cable and converged fiber to the home (FTTH), Harmonic enables Claro Perú to sustainably deliver multi-gigabit broadband services with fast capacity expansion and a superior subscriber experience.
"We are committed to providing our customers with a high-speed, reliable broadband experience. Partnering with Harmonic will allow us to continue in that legacy," said Nelson Moscoso, fixed network deputy director at Claro Perú. "Harmonic’s CableOS Platform sets us up for a more flexible broadband future, ensuring we can quickly respond to trends in internet consumption and growth in network traffic by harnessing the power of software and cloud-native technologies."
Claro Perú is deploying Harmonic’s software-based CableOS Platform in a distributed access architecture (DAA) with Reef Remote PHY (R-PHY) shelves and Ripple R-PHY nodes in a 2×4 segmentation configuration. This accelerates capacity expansion through efficient node splits and extends the life of Claro Perú’s hybrid fiber-coaxial network, ensuring the operator is future ready to support converged cable, FTTH and advanced services such as edge cloud. The CableOS Platform consumes significantly less power than traditional solutions, providing substantial cost savings for Claro Perú.
Harmonic’s CableOS Central analytics offer real-time network visibility, with data-driven proactivity and nonstop connectivity to ensure service continuity and superior broadband experience for Claro Perú subscribers. Harmonic’s professional services team is handling the entire turnkey deployment, including node replacement.
"As the demand for ultrafast broadband surges and 10G and advanced edge cloud services become a reality, operators need to rely on an access network that offers maximum flexibility and efficient bandwidth scaling," said Gil Katz, senior vice president, cable access business operations at Harmonic. "Using our CableOS Platform with R-PHY node segmentation in a DAA deployment, Claro Perú can power greener broadband connectivity and sustainably meet the digital needs of consumers now and well into the future."
Harmonic’s market-leading CableOS Platform powers more than 3 million cable modems for a growing number of innovative operators worldwide, including the largest cable operators in North America and Europe, and leading service providers in Latin America and Asia.
