ANDOVER, MA–(Marketwired – Apr 25, 2014) – Casa Systems, a worldwide leader in next-generation cable edge technology, announced today that StarHub, Singapore’s second-largest info-communications service provider, has selected the company’s C100G CMTS solution following an extensive evaluation process that included several competing chassis.
StarHub operates an island-wide HFC network that delivers multi-channel pay TV services as well as high-speed residential broadband services.
Under the terms of the multi-year agreement Casa Systems will replace all of StarHub’s existing CMTSs with its Integrated CCAP, C100G platform.
“StarHub conducted an extensive evaluation of all of the major vendors’ CMTS products, and determined the C100G was the best short and long term solution for us as it is highly scalable and gives us cost savings in operating the cable network,” said Mock Pak Lum, CTO of StarHub.
The company selected Casa Systems for its advanced system design that delivers exceptional operational cost savings, and its Software Defined Cable (SDC) architecture that enables rapid rollout of advanced features without costly hardware upgrades and downtime.

We are very pleased to have earned StarHub’s business and look forward to helping them roll out new services in the years to come.”
