Video delivery infrastructure provider Harmonic has announced that Swedish operator Com Hem has selected Harmonic's NSG 9000 HectoQAM as its service edgeQAM to increase the speed of its data services and add new multiscreen services based on TiVo technology. Leveraging the scalable nature of the HectoQAM, Com Hem can deliver superior-quality VOD content as well as high-speed data services from a single, unified edgeQAM platform. The HectoQAM features a modular design with hot-swappable RF-QAM modules that enable expansion of service groups and more than quadruple the QAM capacity for existing service groups without rewiring or disruption to operations. Using the edgeQAM Mass Configuration Tool, Com Hem can simultaneously configure multiple HectoQAM systems and perform firmware upgrades as business needs evolve. The MCT functionality also provides remote configuration as well as backup and restoration for multiple devices. Featuring a high-density, 2-RU chassis, the HectoQAM performs PID filtering, multiplexing, scrambling, QAM modulation, and RF amplification, delivering up to 25 Gbps of cable TV services including high-speed internet, VOD, switched digital video and video broadcast. Using Dcosis 3.0 and modular CMTS standards for downstream data transmission, the HectoQAM enables Com Hem to provide subscribers with additional channel bundles and new VOD services on any IP-connected device.
