Profile Management Application (PMA) technology holds the promise of expanding cable broadband capacity with only a software upgrade, but it requires custom integration and testing with each operator’s DOCSIS infrastructure, which can slow down adoption.
The Kyrio PMA Partner Program is a low-cost and low-risk way for vendors to join forces and accelerate PMA deployments. Kyrio formed the PMA Partner Program with the express purpose of supporting the vendor community and building a strong PMA market. Within the Kyrio PMA Partner Program, PMA vendors can leverage Kyrio’s:
PMA helps boost the robustness of existing DOCSIS 3.1 network by improving capacity by up to 20 to 40 percent in both upstream and downstream directions. PMA software dynamically creates smart profiles that govern the modulation orders used in DOCSIS channels adapted to the network conditions of a specific hybrid fiber-coaxial (HFC) network. This minimizes transmission errors and maximizes the data capacity of the OFDM/OFDMA channels, thus enabling an operator to match growing bandwidth demands and defer potential node-splits and new equipment costs.
