Cisco has announced an agreement with Altice to deploy a next-generation converged cable access platform (CCAP) across its multi-country footprint, with the first rollouts being done in France.
The deployment of this platform from Cisco allows Altice to build the foundation for a long-term evolution of its cable access architecture, by taking advantage of the advanced, massive DOCSIS 3.1 capabilities of the Cisco Evolved CCAP solution.
“This step is part of our long-term investment strategy,” says Max Blumberg, chief technology officer, Altice Group. “We are building the next generation of fixed mobile converged networks. With a combination of Cisco’s Evolved CCAP, DOCSIS 3.1 and migration to NFV/SDN, Altice will continue providing the best customer experience, based on the highest bandwidth and cutting edge technology.”
