VICTORIA, British Columbia-- Vecima Networks announced that a Major Tier 1 US Service Provider has selected its Entra® Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) solution with ERM3 Remote PHY Devices to support its enterprise-wide fixed broadband network upgrade to 10G.

Cable operators are competing with the multi-gigabit symmetric service offerings from other providers, making DAA solutions that drop into existing operational systems and wireline infrastructure crucial to time-to-market.

Vecima’s ERM3 Remote PHY Device (RPD) is designed to easily upgrade legacy HFC nodes to DAA and reduce upgrade time and cost for service providers while dramatically increasing broadband capacity. With a unique design that allows for direct installation in three of North America's most widely deployed third-party nodes, the ERM3 supports 1x1, 1x2, 2x2, and 2x4 service group configurations. Upgrading legacy nodes to DAA allows for substantially improved service quality, lower-cost operations, and higher bandwidth for DOCSIS subscribers. When installed in Vecima’s previously announced EN9000 Generic Access Platform (GAP) node, higher performance and density can be achieved in a platform that enables ongoing further evolution in capacity and access technologies.

“Operators and Vecima are united in our mission to deliver 10G broadband speeds to people everywhere. This engagement is focused on unlocking the fiber-like capacity available through incremental upgrades to existing HFC plant,” said Sumit Kumar, Vecima’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our Entra products seamlessly interoperate with widely deployed legacy platforms and are designed to be efficiently and cost-effectively operationalized.”

“Our expanding partnership with this operator highlights our laser focus on providing technology and services that help our partners execute their strategies. Vecima is proud to partner with one of the world’s leading operators as it empowers communities with the networks that are the foundation of global progress.”

In September 2022, Vecima announced significant market adoption and scale for its Entra Cable Access and Fiber Access products, including its Entra Remote PHY nodes. In addition, Vecima recently announced a revenue record for its Entra DAA portfolio, with strong deliveries in recent quarters.
