Com21 system to push bandwidth xtreme
Com21 Inc. is hoping its DOXcontroller XB will push it into the Xtreme bandwidth market.
The system is still under development, and will include a DOXcontroller 1000 headend and a newly expanded version of the company's network management and provisioning system, formerly only available with Com21's ComUNITY Access System, it says. The updated version supports DOCSIS systems.
A one-rack-unit-high headend includes such additions as advanced TDMA support and symmetric performance for advanced symmetrical data rate applications, Com21 says in a statement.
The DOXcontroller 1000 also supports both DOCSIS and Euro-DOCSIS, with upstream channel bandwidth allocation and load balancing, it says. Also included: virtual LANs, QoS, optimized scheduling and spectrum analysis, the company says.
A spokesman says Com21 will trial the DOXcontroller this spring and is angling for a third-quarter release. Thus far, it has no orders.
