Cisco’s 10720 Router and Catalyst 6500 Series Switch (pictured) platforms are helping to save ONO significant amounts of money over its previous system.
Cisco Systems has announced that ONO, a Spanish cable operator, is delivering broadcast-quality television content using a Cisco digital video transport network.
The network is based on the Dynamic Packet Transport/Resilient Packet Ring (DPT/RPR), Gigabit Ethernet and IP Multicast capabilities of Cisco 10720 Routers and Catalyst 6500 Series Switchers. The technology is helping ONO reduce operational costs.
All new ONO customers now receive a DTV service over a hybrid fiber-coaxial network from a regional headend (RHE). The service is supported by an IP layer over a national optical backbone which interconnects the RHEs without the need for expensive regional analog headends.
