Hitron unleashes Intel-based DOCSIS 3.0 gear at Anga
Taiwan-based Hitron Technologies is taking the wraps off of a cable modem and a data gateway that feature Intel’s Puma 6 Media Gateway chipset.
With EuroDOCSIS, which uses 8 MHz versus the 6 MHz used in North America, the Puma 6MG chipset bonds 24 downstream channels and eight upstream channels to deliver up to 1.2 Gbps on the downstream and 320 Mbps on the upstream.
The chipset is available in Hitron’s CDA-32372 cable modem and CDE-32372 gateway, the latter of which also features dual-band Wi-Fi. Hitron didn’t say how much the new cable modem and gateway cost or when they will hit the market.
"We will be demonstrating the Puma 6MG-based solution at Anga so our customers can be the first to see the next-generation products. The 24 x 8 configuration allows our customers to compete with the increasing FTTH competition they face in a manner that shows their customers and the investment community that cable still has a lot of headroom on the plant to reach higher speeds. The added network processor allows for new innovative services to be deployed by our customers," said Rudy Zijlstra, chief technology officer of Hitron Europe.
Hitron and Anyfi Networks will also jointly demonstrate Anyfi.net technology integrated in a DOCSIS 3.0 EMTA at the Anga Cable trade show in Cologne, Germany, which starts tomorrow and runs through Thursday.
"It has been a pleasure to work with Anyfi, offering our customers a wider range of Wi-Fi features that they may select to deploy. Anyfi’s solution is unique in that it allows subscribers to reach their home network, from any place in the network, as if they were at home," Zijlstra said.
