Claro Colombia taps Casa Systems for next-gen broadband solutions

Claro Colombia has deployed solutions from Casa Systems as it seeks to expand its broadband capacity and build a converged, cloud-native network.

In this latest agreement, Claro will deploy Casa’s Axyom Virtual CCAP (vCCAP) and Remote PHY solution, and has also renewed its Integrated CCAP (iCCAP) platform with Casa’s latest generation hardware.

A unit of América Móvil, Claro Colombia is one of the country’s leading service providers and has partnered with Casa for over ten years on the design and evolution of its cable broadband network architecture to maximise its service delivery performance for customers.

Hugo Salazar Engineering Director at Claro Colombia, said: “As we move toward a future of gigabit services, Casa’s cloud-native and distributed access solutions will give us performance and optimised low latency from a smaller, more power efficient footprint which combine to give us tremendous flexibility to evolve our network to meet the needs of our customers.”

Casa Systems’ cloud-native vCCAP integrates full DOCSIS functionality that rapidly scales to deliver high speed voice, video, and data services with an unrivalled quality of service and reliability without driving up costs. Casa’s family of Distributed Access Architecture solutions are designed to help operators push capacity to the network edge by improving the services their subscribers enjoy, extracting more value from existing investments and maintaining seamless operations in the transition from a centralised to a distributed network environment.

Alfred de Cardenas, Chief Customer Officer at Casa Systems, added: “Claro sees tremendous value in migrating their network to vCCAP and distributed access architectures to leverage existing investments while pushing capacity to the edge and leveraging a cloud-native core for addressing customer demand for faster broadband and streaming more video content.”
