DNA, Finland's largest cable operator and the leading pay TV provider in both cable and terrestrial networks, in partnership with Casa Systems has recently demonstated live DOCSIS 3.1 downstream speeds of 3.055 Gbps. DNA has deployed Casa's  C100G CCAP platform as part of its strategy to deliver higher network capacity and speeds to meet the growing ultra broadband demands of its subscribers.

DNA offers mobile, broadband, television and telephone services to more than 3.7 million consumers and business customers throughout Finland. As the number of connected devices grows and with the Internet of Things (IoT) and 4K video on the horizon, the operator needed a solution to enable higher gigabit speeds to meet this new generation of customer requirements. 

The operator plans to initially offer gigabit services to approximately 300,000 subscribers in the Helsinki metro region, building to more than 600,000 households within the next year. 

Kari Ruopsa, head of cable networks for DNA Ltd Chief Technology Officer,  Vodafone
Casa Systems C100G CCAP is a critical element in allowing us to realize the full potential of our cable network, bringing our subscribers the rich experiences of the gigabit world immediately and laying the foundation for our network to easily scale to multi-gigabit services moving forward.

Jerry Guo, CEO, Casa Systems Chief Technology Officer,  Vodafone
Our CCAP multi-services platform also positions DNA to scale and reach maximum downstream and upstream speeds using DOCSIS® 3.1 without the costs and complexity of adding incremental hardware or shifting to a new architecture.
