Alpha, Electroline enter DOCSIS integration pact
Alpha Technologies said Electroline has agreed to provide the power system manufacturer with its next-gen DOCSIS-based status monitoring transponder gear.
Alpha said the agreement will enable it to offer DOCSIS-based HMS transponders, which in turn will allow operators to access vital system information on their existing DOCSIS networks. The combination will also help operators monitor their field power supplies.
"Operators don't need to invest in additional headend equipment, configuration efforts, proprietary single-source software anymore," claimed Jay Staiger, Electroline's marketing director. "The same DOCSIS infrastructure that supports cable modems can also be used to monitor other electronics in the field."
