VECTOR TECHNOLOGIES is the part of VECTOR GROUP – dynamically growing European technology consortium operating on the global markets. It draws from a wide experience and competences that VECTOR has accrued over 25 years of its business activity in delivering telecommunication solutions.
VECTOR TECHNOLOGIES aims at meeting fast growing demand of telecommunication market for dedicated solutions in the field of fixed access. We focus on excellent recognition of challenges and conditions of the customer side to maximize its business efficiency and profitability. Full control over the design and development process guarantee the most suitable solutions adjusted to the individual operator's challenges.
VT main goal is to support Multiple System Operators (MSOs) in accelerating Remote PHY deployments. Remote PHY is the foundation for both bringing NFV to MSO environment and moving the analogue HFC to adapt virtual/NFV solutions.VECTOR TECHNOLOGIES:
Is the first European vendor that started developing RPD, based on the power of Intel Aria A10 FPGA;
Creates the virtual CCAP Core function – CCAP Core simulator - that allows for testing RPD from multi-vendors to achieve full interoperability in compliance with the MHAv2 set of specification.
In 2017 we developed the following family of products prepared for Next Generation Distributed Access Architecture of cable networks:
CCAP Core Simulator allows the testing of the Remote PHY Device (RPD) in compliance with the Remote PHY Specification.
RPD Modules 1x1, 1x2, 2x2 to be implemented in VECTOR TECHNOLOGIES and/or the 3rd party Fiber Nodes.
ACCERON Modular Access Platform designed from the beginning as a digital, intelligent node that can accommodate up to 2 RPD modules.
In this short form of article we aimed at sharing the most important opportunities and challenges that await all companies which will decide to invest in undoubtedly better networks using Remote PHY technology. Let's make sure that all implementations will show the full range of possibilities given. On the other hand, in order to benefit from the new services, one has to face challenges before they will limit deployments.
The CCAP Core Simulator (CCS) is a network platform for validation, debugging, and prototyping for Remote PHY platforms. Based on the custom-built Linux operating system with various services and daemons to emulate CCAP Core in Remote PHY architecture. The CCS is a complete platform that allows MSOs for testing RPD from multi-vendors to achieve full interoperability in compliance with the MHAv2 set of specifi cation. Thanks to the CCAP Core Simulator, MSO can successfully secure Remote PHY deployment in their network.
