Harmonic Says It Has Shipped Over a Million EdgeQAM's

Harmonic said Tuesday that it has now shipped over a million edgeQAM's to cable service providers worldwide. According to the company, its edgeQAM technology powers VOD, broadcast, switched digital video (SDV), modular cable modem termination system (M-CMTS) and cable IPTV services for over 50 million cable subscribers around the world. 18 of the 20 largest MSO's in the US, and a number of tier-one MSO's in Europe and Asia, have deployed its NSG edgeQAM's, the company says. "The NSG's top market-share position is driven by Harmonic's continuous commitment to product excellence and ongoing technology innovation in the edgeQAM category," Gil Katz, Harmonic's senior director of cable solutions, said in a prepared statement. "We have a strong roadmap for the future and are developing advanced solutions designed to meet our customers' needs for density, performance and ease of operation."

Harmonic bills its latest-generation NSG 9000 universal edgeQAM (note: the company launched its NSG product line back in 2000) as a high-density system that offers the industry's best RF performance and serves as a highly integrated digital video gateway, capable of performing multiplexing, encryption, QAM modulation and RF upconversion for video and data streamed over an HFC network.
