ANDOVER, Mass., Nov. 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Casa Systems (NASDAQ: CASA), a market leader in cloud-native network solutions serving Tier 1 and regional service providers worldwide, today announced that Casa Systems’ Virtual CCAP (vCCAP), coupled with the company’s RPD200 (Remote PHY Device) solution, has secured a world’s first in performance that enables cable modems to achieve full utilization of the extended spectrum available via the DOCSIS 4.0 specification at the recent CableLabs® and Kyrio® Interop·Labs DOCSIS 4.0 Technology event. This successful demonstration showcased the interoperability of Casa Systems’ vCCAP and RPD solution with third-party DOCSIS 4.0 cable modems achieving remarkable extended spectrum utilization – up to 1.8 GHz downstream and 396 MHz upstream. This breakthrough not only marks a significant stride in technological innovation but also provides operators with unparalleled flexibility to deploy multi-gigabit broadband services, paving the way for the 10G era.
This latest innovation demonstrates Casa Systems’ sustained commitment to helping service providers across all access technologies – mobile, cable and wireline – embrace a cloud-native future to bring the best broadband technologies to customers around the world. Casa Systems’ unique software design uses programmable FPGAs that are tailored to flexibly meet operator requirements with the ability to accelerate time to market of new features quickly and easily as their networks evolve.
