ANDOVER, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/27/14 -- Casa Systems, a worldwide leader in next-generation cable edge technology, announced today the launch of its new DOCSIS 3.1 upstream module for its carrier class C100G & C10G Integrated Converged Cable Access Platform(s) (I-CCAP). This new module enables cable operators to support the full spectrum in the upstream direction from 5 Mhz up to 100 Mhz and has four times the processing power of its predecessor giving it unmatched performance.
"Casa Systems has proven to be the early leader in ICCAP deployments and the new US16X8 module will help establish early leadership in the delivery of DOCSIS 3.1 capability," said Jeff Heynen, Principal Analyst, Broadband Access, Pay TV, and Video for Infonetics Research. "I have no doubt that with their Software Defined Cable (SDC) architecture, they will be among the leaders in providing equipment capable of supporting DOCSIS 3.1."
The US16X8 module delivers an industry leading 8 channels per port for a total of 128 channels per module. With the possibility of ten primary US16X8 modules and one protection module in an I-CCAP platform a total of 1,280 channels can be supported in the upstream direction. In addition Casa's creative and efficient use of Network Processor Units (NPUs) and Flexible Program Gate Arrays (FPGAs) allow the card to be software upgraded to support DOCSIS 3.1.
"An important competitive advantages is SDC," said Weidong Chen, CTO of Casa Systems. "SDC is our software architecture that is dramatically different from the rest of the industry through its use of NPUs and FPGAs, maximizing their efficiencies. This allows us to quickly and efficiently add significant features, like DOCSIS 3.1, through software upgrades and improves our time to market."
"Software Defined Cable has enabled us to establish a one to two year lead over our competitors in CCAP and it continues with the announcement of our new US16X8 module," said Jerry Guo, Founder and CEO of Casa Systems. "It will give us an even greater lead in the move to DOCSIS 3.1."
