Netgear announced that its new CG4500TM voice/data gateway, which has the capability for 24 x 4 channel bonding, has received CableLabs DOCSIS 3.0 certification.

On the channel-bonding front, Netgear is using MaxLinear’s MxL267 Full-Spectrum Capture (FSC) digital cable front-end receiver to bond those 24 downstream channels. The gateway was designed to help MSOs transition to all-IP access networks and features up to 1 Gbps of throughput, which would make it three times faster than any DOCSIS gateway available in the market today.

The gateway also features dual-band concurrent 802.11n wireless networking, which provides up to 900 Mbps (450+450 Mbps) aggregate speed. Simultaneous dual-band technology also helps mitigate interference, ensuring sustained throughput and reliable connections.

The gateway also comes with MoCA to enable seamless data and video distribution over the in-home coax network.

Other features include:

  • Voice – two ports RJ11 supporting PacketCable
  • LAN – 4 Gig Ethernet and MoCA
  • USB –  one USB2.0 host port.

“Introducing a CableLabs-certified DOCSIS 3.0 gateway with 24 x 4 capabilities is a very important milestone for Netgear in the DOCSIS gateway market. With significant R&D investment focused in the cable gateway market, we are pleased with this certification,” said Naveen Chhangani, director of product management for the service provider business unit at Netgear.
