Mediacom Taps Casa for Gigabit Broadband

More light is being shed on the technical underpinnings of a residential 1-Gig offering that Mediacom Communications launched last year.

Casa Systems said the MSO is using its C100G converge cable access platform (CCAP) to power the network-side of the offering in its Columbia and Jefferson, Mo., markets.

Mediacom is also using a DOCSIS 3.0-powered modem from Hitron Technologies Americas to support the service, which teams a 1-Gig downstream with an upstream that maxes out at 50 Mbps for about $150 per months.

The deployment is another key win for Casa Systems, which is battling for CCAP share with market leaders, Arris and Cisco Systems, as well with suppliers such as Harmonic and Huawei Technologies.

“We are excited to bring our long experience providing commercial-grade gigabit services to our residential customers beginning with these communities in Mid-Missouri,” said JR Walden, Mediacom’s SVP of technology, in a statement. “Casa’s C100G was the right CMTS solution given our timing, facilities requirements, performance needs and desire to support the future evolution of our network and services.”

The Casa C100G is also capable of supporting DOCSIS 3.1, the emerging multi-gigabit platform for HFC networks.
