Charter Deploys Harmonic’s ‘FLXLink’


Charter Communications Inc. is speeding up its commercial services in Southern California with help from Harmonic Inc.

The MSO said Thursday that it has deployed the vendor’s “FLXLink Commercial Services Solution” to deliver ultra-high-speed network services to business, government and education customers in the region.

Harmonic said FLXLink is based on coarse-wavelength-division multiplexing technology, enabling operators to deliver Internet, virtual-private network and other managed services at access speeds of up to 1 gigabit per second.

Charter said the FLXLink deployment will enable it to offer advanced interactive commercial applications such as video-based distance learning and remote medical consultation.
