Test automation and management solutions provider Verecomm is releasing its newest product, CableAVS for DOCSIS.
CableAVS is a framework that allows developers of broadband communications products and services to automate and optimize verification of cable data products using third-party equipment. The ability to self-test and exercise DOCSIS product functionality within a development environment, prior to certification testing, accelerates the delivery of DOCSIS-compliant products and services to the market.
The product is based on Verecomm's TestExpert AVT product and incorporates an application programming interface developed specifically for data over cable service interface specification (DOCSIS) as well as interfaces for all software and hardware test tools specified in the DOCSIS acceptance test plans.
Citing research predicting cable modem (penetration rates?) are expected to exceed 60 percent per year through 2004, the company is aiming to meet that new demand with its products.
