DEV Systemtechnik & Sumavision cooperate in the European Market

DEV Systemtechnik & Sumavision enter a partnership to support European cable network operators with Remote-MACPHY systems for distributed CCAP network topologies.

DEV Systemtechnik has been appointed as the exclusive sales partner of distributed CCAP solutions to major MSOs in most European countries in 2019 by Chinese manufacturer Sumavision. The DOCSIS 3.1 compatible Remote-MACPHY devices help European MSOs, to drastically enhance their networks and to benefit from distributed access architectures (DAA).

Sumavision has been providing comprehensive solutions for DOCSIS standard-based cable networks under the subsidiary Topvision since 2012. Topvision has recently developed a D-CCAP solution further enhancing coaxial network access performance. The distributed CCAP node is a feature-rich, high-end cable network edge system supporting all applications including internet, voice, VOD and broadcast CATV.

With a Remote-MACPHY MSOs benefit from a D-CCAP architecture in which MAC and PHY functions are no longer required to be located in the headend, but directly in the access node. This leads to several benefits such as better utilization of bandwidth, easy maintenance, more flexible architectures and scalability and an improved RF performance. The Topvision systems are agnostic to OLT / switch vendors which provide freedom to the operator to choose from a wide supplier base for the headend/uplink connection of the nodes. MACPHYs are available either in a 19″ indoor or in various sized outdoor housings, supporting DOCSIS 3.1, Euro- and US DOCSIS 3.0 / 2.0 and C-DOCSIS standards.
