World’s First Certification for Any Modem Powered by the Intel Puma 7 Chipset
Article on CED Magazine
Hitron Technologies CODA-45 modem has received DOCSIS 3.1 certification from CableLabs. The vendor reports this is the world’s first certification for any modem powered by the Intel Puma 7 chipset.
“Our CODA modem with this state-of-the-art Intel chipset is the perfect choice for service providers who want to leverage their investments in DOCSIS 3.1 infrastructure, improve network efficiency and scalability, as well as meet consumers’ expectations for faster broadband networks,” Patrick Chiu, president at Hitron Americas & Europe business unit, says.
CODA-45 is said to be capable of up to 5 Gbps downstream over multi-carrier OFDM channels bonded with 32 single-carrier QAM channels and up to 1 Gbps upstream throughput via D3.1. The two GigE ports deliver 1.97 Gbps to subscribers, according to Hitron. The device also reportedly enhances its basic data transmission features with IPv6 support. It’s backward-compatibile to D3.0, has consumer installation capability, and operators can control it via a configuration file and simple network management protocol (SNMP), according to the company. Hitron also reports the modem has been evaluated by “most of North Americas’ major operators.”
The certification update news comes as several operators have turned up the flame on their DOCSIS 3.1 field trials and real-world rollouts across North America. Among them are RCN, Comcast, Videotron, Midco, and others. Liberty Global also talked up the DOCSIS role in the “Gigabit Society” envisioned by the European Commission by 2025 based on an independent report it commissioned from media and telecommunications consultant Communications Chambers.
