  • For MSOs ready to take the next step in evolving their cable access networks, Casa’s AxyomTM Virtual CCAP (vCCAP) delivers multi-dimensional scaling and high performance from a lean vCPU footprint. Developed for the cloud from the ground up, the Axyom vCCAP is designed to support full inter-operability in a distributed access architecture. Like Casa’s award winning C100G, the vCCAP will deliver full CCAP functionality while helping MSOs increase service velocity and improve operational agility.

    Casa Systems has been at the forefront of the cable access network evolution for over a decade and continues the leadership our customers expect with the next generation of innovations for cable networks. Today, these networks are undergoing a fundamental technology and architectural shift toward software defined, distributed, virtualized, and converged networks to enable the service agility and operational simplicity providers require. Casa Systems has technologies that can help step up the potential of any broadband network, no matter where it is on the transformation curve.

    The virtualization of cable network functions and introduction of Software Defined Networking and intelligent orchestration create unprecedented opportunities for MSOs. At the same time, the evolution from hardwarecentric to software-centric networks, including the rearchitecture of head end offices into data centers and distribution of access via fiber-deep strategies create new challenges.

    In considering virtual CCAP (vCCAP) solutions, service providers should consider at least the three sets of criteria.

    1. As a CCAP core: does the vCCAP solution support all the functionality one would expect from a state-of-the-at physical CCAP core solution including linear video? Does the vCCAP solution support HFC, fiberdeep, PON, and hybrid access software-defined architectures? Is it ready for an NFV environment from day one?

    2. As software implemented on non-proprietary hardware: how readily are functions scaled in multiple dimensions, are the control and forwarding planes fully separated, how easily can the network be programmed from the edge to the core, and how flexible are the deployment options?

    3. As a converged core: does the vCCAP solution help or hinder future service expansion, including converged fixed / mobile services.

    Highlights:

    Full CCAP Functionality from CCAP Experts. Designed to deliver the same functionality as Casa’s award-winning I-CCAP.

    Full separation of control and forwarding planes. Full separation of control and forwarding planes enables independent scaling, which helps match resources to demand more effectively.
