Virtual Headend Portfolio – (Awarded 4 out of 5 diamonds)

As service providers continue to evolve their networks to support the ever-increasing demand for content, and as video delivery shifts from broadcast technologies (QAM) to IP, solutions are needed for flexible and adaptable network deployments. CommScope’s extensive portfolio, flexible architectures enable service providers to optimally evolve their broadband network. Built upon 20+ years of field hardened code and a vast installed base, CommScope’s Virtualization platform is specifically optimized for broadband and video service delivery. Flexible and elastic, this virtual platform is designed with growth and scalability in mind.

RD1322 2x2 Remote PHY Device (Awarded 4 out of 5 diamonds)

Operators want to futureproof their networks and augment their existing HFC plant investments to deliver the next generation of services as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. Many operators are using Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) to achieve this goal. CommScope continues the advancement of its DAA portfolio with its RD1322 2x2 Remote PHY Device. This new module supports CommScope’s market-leading installed base of NC4- and OM4-series fiber nodes. This promises to extend the benefits of DAA to both traditional segmented and fiber-deep architectures.


Smart Media Device platform 7852 – (Awarded 3.5 out of 5 diamonds)

CommScope’s Smart Media Device platform 7852 combines all the primary devices for the connected home into a single piece of hardware. It incorporates a set-top, speaker, smart assistant, far-field voice command technology and remote control in one device, presenting service providers with an exciting new framework for personalized and aggregated services in entertainment, e-health, education, utilities, productivity, and more. It also includes the latest Wi-Fi 6 technology for fast, high-reliability, low-latency service delivery, along with the latest AV1 and HDR technologies to enable outstanding streaming video experiences throughout the home, rendered in dynamic and vivid 4K.

Like many other awards we have won in the past, these awards validate CommScope’s commitment to delivering the most advanced products for telecommunications networks.
