Canadian MSO Kincardine Cable said it will tap C-COR.net Corp. ‘s GigE Max transport module as part of a plan to phase-in a variety of advanced services.
Kincardine, which serves seven rural communities in Ontario, will add the 2.5 Gbps modules to C-COR’s CHP Max5000 headend platform. The operator expects to kick off the project next month and initially introduce high-speed data and digital video services. Further down the road, Kincardine plans to launch video-on-demand and cable telephony.
“The GigE Max will help us to accomplish what the larger operators are doing in delivering multiple advanced services over a fiber-rich, digital network,” said Kincardine Cable President Bryan Walden.
