If you can't beat 'em, join 'em
It's beginning to look like open-access is the way of the future and ADC is laying the groundwork for making those free rides easier on the Time Warners and AT&Ts of the world.
The company has enhanced its cable modem termination system products to make it easier for cable operators to support open access for subscriber flexibility.
ADC's Cuda 12000 IP Access Switch and Cuda Provisioning Manager are designed to allow cable operators to give subs a choice of who delivers their Internet data. The switch lets operators build on their existing network infrastructures without placing a limit on the number of ISPs they support.
