Time Warner Cable has started deploying Converged Cable Access Platforms (CCAP) which will provide more bandwidth space for delivery of Internet services. CCAP is the set of requirements and architecture, developed through CableLabs, for a new edge device that combines the functions of DOCSIS 3.0 upstreams and downstreams with video broadcast and narrowcast quadrature amplitude modulators (QAMs) into one platform.
“CCAP will provide the increased density and corresponding capacity needed to meet the growth of our Data services,” said Howard Pfeffer, Time Warner Cable’s Senior Vice President, Broadband Technology Group. “The deployments have been extremely successful. We look forward to continued network growth, enabling the development of new and advanced services for our customers.”
Time Warner Cable has deployed the C100G Cable Modem Termination System from Casa Systems and the E6000 Converged Edge Router from Arris Group.
