Cable Europe Labs certifies 2 devices
The latest wave of EuroDOCSIS testing yielded certifications for two cable modems, one from Cisco and the other from AVM.
Cisco's EPC3008 cable modem bonds up to eight DOCSIS channels on the downstream, for a theoretical max of 440 Mbps, and up to four channels on the upstream.
To date, AVM has concentrated largely on the DSL market with its Fritz boxes, routers that integrate broadband, VoIP and wireless connectivity. The company introduced a EuroDOCSIS 3.0 model for the cable market last October.
That product was designated the 6360, similarly integrating Internet, networking and telephony solutions in a single unit. Features included WLAN N (Wi-Fi n), a USB 2.0 port, telephone system for VoIP and landline, VPN, Gigabit Ethernet, UPnP Media Server and the integrated DECT base station for cordless telephony.
The recently certified model is the 6320, about which little information was immediately available at press time.
