ANDOVER, Mass., Dec. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Casa Systems, a worldwide leader in next generation fixed, wireless and Wi-Fi access networks, today announced that Mediacom Communications, the 5th largest cable operator in the U.S., expanded its deployment of Casa's forward-engineered C100G Converged Cable Access Platform (CCAP) in support of a company-wide initiative to make its entire broadband network gigabit-capable by the end of 2016.
Mediacom provides internet, video and phone services to over 1.3 million residential and business customers across 22 states. In 2015, Mediacom successfully deployed Casa's C100G in its Columbia and Jefferson City, Missouri markets to boost network capacity and ensure fast, flawless access for subscribers. With the additional C100G deployments within its footprint, Mediacom has been able to quickly and cost-effectively convert to DOCSIS® 3.1 and is poised to make its entire broadband network service area gigabit-ready by the end of 2016.
"Speed matters to our customers, and we are committed to provide ultra-fast, reliable broadband services across all of our markets", said JR Walden, Mediacom's Chief Technology Officer. "Casa Systems shares our vision to deliver the rich experiences of the gigabit world that will enhance daily life and spark innovation in the communities we serve. Our partnership and investment in Casa's access network solutions allow us to successfully provide significantly faster internet speeds and reinforce Mediacom's commitment to continue to bring next generation technology to our customers."
The next-generation capabilities of Casa's C100G CCAP translate to increased speeds, more available bandwidth and an improved user experience for Mediacom's subscribers both immediately and in the future. In addition to full DOCSIS® 3.1 capabilities with DOCSIS® 3.0 interoperability, the C100G's scalability for future growth gives Mediacom's network the engine it needs to power its top-tier services well into the gigabit era.
"Service providers are racing to deliver advanced cable access networks that can keep pace with subscriber expectations," said Jerry Guo, CEO at Casa Systems. "Our C100G CCAP gives providers like Mediacom a forward-engineered access solution that enables the gigabit speeds needed today as well as the multi-gigabit, high bandwidth services of tomorrow. Casa Systems will continue to bring innovation and value to our long-standing relationship with Mediacom that delivers on our mutual vision to provide next generation technology to the communities we serve."
The C100G enables service providers to deliver voice, video and high-speed data over one platform. Launched in 2013, the C100G supports the full DOCSIS® 3.1 protocol for greater spectrum utilization. With DOCSIS® 3.1 enabled in both the upstream and downstream on the C100G, operators can deploy gigabit services today while being well-positioned to scale and provide additional services down the road – without the need to rip and replace switch cards, line cards or PHY modules. Providers can also evolve to a distributed access architecture (DAA) using the existing C100G and just one new card in the CCAP core. Service providers deploying the C100G have demonstrated significant OPEX savings in the areas of energy, facilities, maintenance and management. Simultaneously, they have been able to offer their end users higher speed tiers and a better customer experience.
