Your customers expect ultra-broadband speeds, innovative services and best-in-class customer experiences. To deliver, you need solutions that provide the bandwidth you need today with a clear path to the future virtualized and distributed multi-access network.
Casa’s award-winning I-CCAP is designed to provide industry-leading density and support not only DOCSIS 3.1 (and Full Duplex DOCSIS 3.1), but also CableLabs’ specifications for Distributed Access Architectures (DAAs), including full CCAP functionality as well as interoperability. Deployed by over 450 customers around the globe, Casa’s I-CCAP supports not only HFC but also PON, from a common management platform, which speeds deployment and simplifies operations. Casa’s virtualized CCAP provides full CCAP functionality from the company who deployed the first CCAP to commercially deliver voice, video and data over a single port. And, Casa has virtualized Wi-Fi and 4G/5G solutions that are built in the same software framework as our vCCAP, enabling mobility services today and converged services for the future.
To support ongoing customer demand growth, cable service providers are transforming their networks to carry more traffic and spread the load across their access networks. Enter the Remote PHY and Remote MACPHY — Distributed Access Architectures (DAAs).
DAA helps service providers push processing to the edge, leverage current investments and densify access networks to flexibly deliver video, voice and data while efficiently supporting bandwidth growth and ensuring customer satisfaction.
Casa has introduced a family of DAA solutions that are interoperable with other vendors’ solutions.
Network function virtualization, software defined networking (SDN), and cloud architectures will revolutionize cable network capabilities and provide the service agility and deployment flexibility you need. Casa’s vCCAP software leverages Casa’s field proven core, but is designed from the ground up for a cloud environment. We know the evolution to a fully virtualized network isn’t going to happen overnight, which is why we have designed our vCCAP to use existing C100G CLI and SNMP commands so it is easier to manage both physical and virtual network functions in a graceful evolution. Casa’s vCCAP is built in our Axyom software framework, which is already deployed by providers around the globe for virtualized mobile and Wi-Fi network functions. The common Axyom framework facilitates network and service convergence and gives you the ability to accelerate new service offerings.
CableLabs DOCSIS® 3.1 standard has been implemented on our award-winning CCAP solutions, both upstream and downstream, enabling gigabit speeds and higher bandwidth capacity to meet rising demands. Our full support of the DOCSIS 3.1 standard gives you the ability to offer download speeds as high as 10 Gbps and upload speeds as high as 1 Gbps. Backward compatibility with DOCSIS 3.0 allows a graceful transition and better utilization of network assets. With Casa, you do not have to wait to deliver the full capabilities of DOCSIS 3.1 solutions and multi‑gigabit speeds to your customers.
Full Duplex (FDX) DOCSIS 3.1 extends the DOCSIS 3.1 specification to enable symmetric multi-gigabit services over HFC networks. As you look forward to future applications, FDX should be on your radar, along with FTTx and fiber-deep DAA strategies. Moving to an N+0 architecture with Casa’s Distributed Access Architecture solutions will ensure you are ready when and where your customers need increased high speed upstream capacity, along with additional downstream capacity, beyond the gigabit+ available from DOCSIS 3.1 and DAA today.
Casa realizes that PON is a valuable tool that many cable service providers want in their tool kits. PON can be used for greenfield deployments and as an overlay to cherry pick high ARPU enterprise customers who desire multi-gigabit services and high upstream speeds. Casa’s PON solutions give cable service providers several options to help ensure the smooth rollout and integration of PON.
Casa’s I-CCAP, C100G & C40G, solutions support fully integrated 10G EPON. Not only is an integrated PON card provided but DOCSIS Provisioning over Ethernet (DPoEv2) allows service provisioning from your existing DOCSIS back office.
Casa provides additional options including distributed access PON / Remote OLTs, XGS-PON, NGPON2 and fully virtualized PON core solutions.
Whether you are adding a cellular service to your portfolio to round out Quad Play offerings to your residential subscriber base, creating a neutral host network for resale, or looking to enhance private network offerings to enterprises, Casa Systems can help. Not only are our Wi‑Fi and cellular solutions fully virtualized, high performing, and highly scalable, but they are built on Casa’s Axyom software, which is also the base of our vCCAP, vBNG, and vOLT solutions. This means simpler integration toward unified policy and converged services to offer your customers e2e QoS.
Casa’s Apex small cells support licensed and unlicensed (e.g., CBRS 3.5GHz) spectrum and provide coverage and capacity for residences, public venues, enterprises, or outdoors, and our Axyom Small Cell Core enables local break out of traffic for private network use cases. Casa’s Axyom vEPC can be deployed to support MVNO or MNO use cases. And, our Axyom vWAG is AP‑vendor agnostic and provides active traffic management to support cellular + Wi‑Fi traffic steering and roaming.
Wi‑Fi is a key and increasingly important part of your network, offering a variety of opportunities from community Wi-Fi to highly tailored consumer and enterprise experiences, that help increase the value of your services to your subscribers. Essential to increased value is the ability to segregate traffic, gather real‑time intelligence, and apply differentiated policy in real‑time. Casa’s vWAG (virtual Wireless Access Gateway) gives you the subscriber intelligence features you need, regardless of the FIT access points you may have already deployed. The Axyom vWAG is highly dense (supporting up to 1M APs and 1M authenticated devices), high performing (up to 80 Gbps throughput), and gives you more opportunities to derive more value from your Wi‑Fi network.
