BigBand upgrades CMTS software
BigBand Networks  said VoIP and IPTV support are key to a new software release for its Cuda cable modem termination system (CMTS).
Version 6.0, offered as a software upgrade to existing Cuda CMTSs, also includes support for hitless software upgrades that maintain service sessions through deployment modification.
"Cable operators are constantly broadening their offerings, such as current rapid VoIP expansion, in progress towards realization of next-generation network visions that leverage IP and DOCSIS technologies for myriad applications," said John Connelly, BigBand Networks' executive vice president of marketing and business development, in a release.
In addition to PacketCable and DOCSIS 2.0, the Cuda also supports the DOCSIS Set-top Gateway (DSG), the company said.
