ATX GigaPass Receives Four-Diamond Rating in 2019 Diamond Technology Reviews

Commercially available GigaPass clears path for MSOs in their move to Distributed Access Architectures 

“GigaPass was developed to help cable operators clear DAA deployment hurdles…”

DALLAS, Sept. 26, 2019 – ATX Networks, a global leader in broadband access and media distribution solutions, today announced that its GigaPass™ RF R-PHY Video Engine has been recognized with 4 Diamonds in the Video Distribution Solutions category of Broadband Technology Report’s 2019 Diamond Technology Reviews.

“The Diamond Technology Reviews are the gold standard for the cable industry, and we are pleased that GigaPass has been recognized in this prestigious review of the technology that paces our industry,” said Kevin Rossi, Vice President of Product Line Management at ATX. “GigaPass was developed to help cable operators clear DAA deployment hurdles, and is emblematic of our agile innovation development philosophy that enables MSOs to tackle both today’s and tomorrow’s challenges while maximizing their technology investments.”

GigaPass is a headend platform designed to help MSOs address video encryption licensing and interoperability issues that often delay DAA deployments. Not only does the RF R-PHY video engine provide MSOs with the opportunity to migrate to RPD-based nodes while they build out their CCAP video cores, but it can also serve as a cost-effective alternative to a full-blown CCAP video core for cable operators that are likely to transition their video services to IP in the near future. The solution features a modular design and market-leading density, delivering up to 320 processed QAMs in a single RU.

ATX recently announced the commercial availability of the GigaPass RF R-PHY Video Engine, and the technology will be on display at SCTE-ISBE Cable-Tec Expo 2019 in New Orleans from October 1-3, 2019 (Booth #1601).

“On behalf of the Broadband Technology Report’s 2019 Diamond Technology Reviews, I would like to congratulate ATX on their 4 Diamonds honoree status,” said Broadband Technology Report’s Chief Editor, Stephen Hardy. “This program recognizes and rewards the top products and solutions available to the broadband cable industry. We appreciate all entries we receive though not all were honored with 3.5 Diamonds or above.”
