Ubee Interactive said it passed the milestone of 1 million DOCSIS 3.0 units shipped to its MSO customers in the Americas and European markets and that demand for D3 products is accelerating.

"D3 is deploying very quickly across North America," says Maria Popo, president of the Americas for Ubee. "More than a dozen cable operators in Canada, the U.S. and Latin America are now rolling out DOCSIS 3.0."

She said the company is well on its way to shipping 2 million units.

The company said there was approximately an even split between data-only and data/voice models through the first million units shipped and that data/voice models continue to represent about half of all orders.

"Wideband has become much more than an Americas phenomenon," says Ben Huang, vice president of Europe for Ubee. "High-speed data has been a priority for Ubee outside of North America for some time."

He added, "Given the state of the economy worldwide, the cable broadband market is somewhat of a bright spot by proving that cable operators remain committed to expanding their DOCSIS 3.0 footprint in Europe."
