Ubee displays vision for converged network migration
At this week’s Cable Show in Washington, D.C., Ubee Interactive, formerly known as Ambit, is demonstrating several IP migration solutions, which, along with its DOCSIS 3.0 product line, illustrate the company’s vision for converged network migration.
Ubee’s demonstrations use several “transport gateways,” which convert either QAM or DVB-C signals on the access network to IP within the home – to go to PCs, media gateways or other Internet appliances. One such device on display is Ubee’s “green” IP set-top box that uses a liquid-cooled heat dissipation system and a multi-state power scheme to lower power consumption by more than 50 percent.
Ubee will also be showcasing its DOCSIS 3.0 products, including its new DDM 3500 “8 x 4” modem (up to 8 downstream channels and 4 upstream channels), enabling data rates of up to 320 Mbps.
The company is also introducing its DVW3200 Wireless EMTA, incorporating 802.11n, four Gigabit Ethernet ports and USB connectivity into a single, integrated device.
