Xtend gets its ACTA together
Xtend Networks said its T-1 platform for HFC networks has achieved certification from the Administrative Council for Terminal Attachment (ACTA).
The certification ensures Xtend's compliance with the Telecommunications Industry Association's TIA-968-A-3 standards for the connection of terminal equipment to the telephone network. Hermon Laboratories, an independent certifying firm, conducted the tests on Xtend's XMTS and V311 T-1 modem.
"By successfully meeting some of the telecommunications industry's highest standards in independent testing, we can assure our customers that they can deliver competitive T-1 services over their existing coax networks with the same level of quality as those offered by incumbent telephone service providers," said Xtend CEO Bill Keating, in a release.
Xtend's T-1 platform is designed to pipe symmetrical 1.544 Mbps over HFC networks.
