Com21 the latest to break the DOCSIS 1.1 barrier
After further review, CableLabs has awarded DOCSIS 1.1-certification to Com21 Inc.'s DOXport 1110XB cable modem.
CableLabs initially reported results from certification wave 22 on June 20. Cable's Louisville, Colo.-based R&D house regularly has given certification and qualification nods to equipment weeks after the end of testing waves. Those passing grades are typically handed out after further testing irons out anomalies and phantom failures that showed up during the original certification wave.
Com21 joins a growing list of vendors that now sell DOCSIS 1.1-certified modems or reference designs, including 3Com, Aastra, Accton, Ambit, Arris (two models), Askey, Conexant, Correlant, Joohong, Motorola Broadband (three models), Quanta Network Systems, Samsung, Scientific-Atlanta (two models), Tellabs (two models), Terayon (two models), Texas Instruments (two reference designs), Thomson (two models), Toshiba (two models), and Xrosstech.
CableLabs has also qualified CMTSs from the following manufacturers: ADC, Arris (two models), Cisco (two models), Juniper Networks, Motorola Broadband (two models), Riverstone Networks and S-A.
CableLabs is expected to kick off certification wave 23 on July 22, and release results on or around Sept. 26. The final certification wave of 2002 is slated to begin Oct. 14.
