Distributed Access (DAA)

The highway to the future

Distributed access architecture (DAA) enables the evolution of cable networks by decentralizing and virtualizing headend and network functions.

DAA is a mandatory step for all coax-based network evolution strategies. It leads to 10G broadband speeds with the existing coaxial assets and enables automation through virtualization and next-generation telemetry tools.

Stages of Successful DAA Deployments

Do you know what deploying distributed access architecture requires?

  • Back-office: from hardware-based CMTS and CCAP core deployments to fully virtualised back office
  • DAA: from pre-standard MACPHY to Remote PHY and standardised MACPHY
  • DOCSIS: from DOCSIS 3.0 to DOCSIS 4.0
  • Cable access: from classical analogue optics and 1 GHz HFC to CIN and 1.8 GHz HFC

Getting the Teleste RPD working with the Cisco cBR8 was easy in my opinion. The interop is great (thanks to CableLabs standards!) and both Teleste and Cisco are eager to help, if needed. The guys at Teleste deserve a lot of credit for their level of commitment. They clearly want the customer experience to be as good as possible. They are a pleasure to work with.
