HsinChu, Taiwan – November 15, 2011
Hitron Technologies Inc. ® (TAIEX: 2419), a worldwide provider of technologically innovative, branded networking solutions, will be showcasing the industry’s first DOCSIS 3.0 8×4 wireless cable gateway with integrated four-port Gigabit Ethernet switch and Wi-Fi 802.11n 3X3 MIMO Access Point at SCTE CABLE- TECH EXPO 2011.
This wireless cable gateway, the Hitron CGN, delivers speeds of up to 320Mbps (8×4) with eight bonded downstream channels over its DOCSIS interface. The integrated four-port Gigabit Ethernet switch and first of its kind Wi-Fi 802.11n 3X3 MIMO Access Point enable fast and easy home networking. The WiFi solution is the best currently in the market and will outperform current 2×2 solutions by up to 250 percent enabling subscribers to take full advantage of the speeds provided by DOCSIS3.0. The CGN provides both higher short range bandwidth, as well as faster speeds at longer ranges while covering larger areas more fully than current solutions. The CGN supports pre-configured and pre-enabled Wi-Fi security via Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS), allowing the end-user to rapidly set up a secure wireless network without manual configuration.
For the network and routing management, the Hitron CGN supports TR-69, HNAP and IPv6 routing. By selecting Hitron’s solution, cable operators can not only choose DSLite or 6RD for their different IPv6 deployment and transition strategies but also enhance their management and stability for low total cost of ownership.
“Building on our success with tier one European and Asian cable operators, this is an exciting time for Hitron Technologies as we enter the North American market.” said Todd Babic, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer. “Leveraging in-house hardware/software design and manufacturing puts Hitron in a unique competitive position. Our customers’ competitive landscape is more dynamic than ever. With Hitron’s resources, we can deliver first-to-market products, like the CGN, which will be critical for our ongoing success as well as our valued MSO customers.
