Vecima to Demonstrate Flexible Broadband Access Networks and Next-generation Video Delivery at SCTE® Cable-Tec Expo 2023
Vecima Networks Inc. (TSX: VCM) will showcase broadband and IPTV industry leadership at the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2023, highlighting its Entra® Unified Access portfolio, which enables operators to deploy both Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) and Passive Optical Networking (PON) in any market or hub.
The company will also demonstrate MediaScale™ Streaming solutions, including Open CDN™ which enables Service Providers to generate incremental revenue and optimize capacity in their networks by caching third-party video content directly within their own networks, all while improving quality of experience for their end users.
Technologies on Display
Entra® ERM3 Remote PHY Device (RPD): Widely interoperable with vCMTS and third-party CCAP cores, the ERM3 easily upgrades legacy analog HFC nodes to DAA, reducing installation time and lowering operating costs while dramatically increasing broadband capacity. Its unique form factor and features highlight Vecima's open and interoperable approach to hardware and software. Vecima recently announced that Charter Communications selected the ERM3 to enable 10G services over HFC networks. The ERM3 also recently obtained a prestigious '5-Diamonds' in the 2023 BTR Diamond Technology Reviews.
Entra® Access Nodes: Vecima's "Forever Nodes" protect operators' investment in technology-forward networks as they prepare for DOCSIS® 4.0, 1.8 GHz cable access, and advanced passive-optical network (PON) deployments. Fully interoperable and upgradable, Vecima's Entra Access Nodes pave the way to multi-gigabit, symmetrical broadband services.
Flexible PON: Hardened, shelf-based OLTs (Optical Line Terminals) and Remote OLTs available from Vecima allow rapid, cost-effective deployment of symmetrical multi-gigabit speeds now, while preparing the access network for 50G fiber to the premises and beyond. A unified provisioning platform takes the learning curve out of PON for operators' technical experts.
Internet for All: Vecima recently announced that it intends to expand manufacturing options, including U.S. manufacturing, for its Entra® product line to align with the Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) Program. Vecima's 10G PON portfolio has achieved strong market adoption-in March 2023, the Dell'Or Group named Vecima the global market share leader in both Remote MACPHY and Remote OLT solutions.
Targeted advertising: Service Providers get control over content with the MediaScale Dynamic Content solution which supports dynamic targeted advertising, content rights management and blackouts. By adjusting content at the edge of the network, operators can deliver more efficient, personalized video content and capture opportunities to monetize that content with targeted, higher-value ads.
MediaScale Open CDN™ allows service providers to monetize the terabytes of internet traffic delivered free of charge today and prepare their networks for the petabytes of content yet to come as streaming video consumption continues to rise. The subscriber gets an improved viewing experience, without the headaches associated with congested networks that lead to rebuffering and poor video quality.
TruLive™ Streaming: For live programming, especially sports broadcasts, Vecima's solution offers scalability, reliability, and quality with a bundle of products and services that are used by operators around the world to manage explosive demand while maintaining pristine video streaming.
