ENGLEWOOD, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hitron Technologies Americas Inc., the global leader in the design, manufacturing and distribution of innovative high-performance DOCSIS products for Multiple-System Operators (MSOs) worldwide, today announced Mediacom Communications Corporation, the nation’s eighth largest cable television company based on the number of basic video subscribers and among the leading cable operators focused on serving the smaller cities and towns in the United States, is among the first cable operators to deploy the Hitron Gigabit Cable Modem (CDA3-35), the industry’s first DOCSIS 3.0 32x8 channel bonding modem to be commercially deployed in North America.
The Hitron CDA3-35 will provide Mediacom with the high-performance DOCSIS 3.0 solution to deliver its high-speed Xtream suite of integrated Internet, TV and phone services. The CDA3-35 delivers speeds up to one Gbps with 32 bonded downstream channels over its DOCSIS interface to support high-bandwidth Internet applications such as ultra-fast in-home WiFi, HD video streaming and interactive multimedia applications, VoIP services, and home security and automation services. Hitron ships over three million DOCSIS units annually worldwide.
“The way in which content is being sourced and consumed in the home has changed greatly in the last few years and continues to evolve rapidly as advanced video streaming services and multimedia applications emerge and drive demand for increases in network bandwidth in the home,” explained JR Walden, CTO for Mediacom. “The delivery of the state-of-the-art, differentiated services that Mediacom offers requires CPE that delivers fast speeds and reliable performance. Deploying Hitron’s new Gigabit DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem provides us with the performance and bandwidth required to successfully deliver our advanced service offerings to maximize customer satisfaction and further set us apart from the competition.”
“Cable operators are under increasing competitive pressure to deliver faster Internet speeds and differentiated multimedia and on-demand services to grow their customer bases and increase their revenues,” explained Todd Babic, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer for Hitron Technologies Americas. “Mediacom is an ideal candidate for our new Gigabit cable modem as they are launching advanced integrated solutions that push the performance envelopes of most cable modems. Our product will enable them to support the services they’re delivering today and gives them the ability to deploy more bandwidth-intensive services in the future.”
The CDA3-35, which delivers data throughput speeds up to one Gbps, combines a cost-effective design approach with flexible and world-class leading software allowing Hitron to deliver to customers a gigabit cable modem that is simple to deploy, monitor and manage. Once connected, the built-in TFTP client automatically retrieves the IP address and configuration data from the network. A browser-based utility allows convenient viewing of key network statistics and SNMP support provides total remote control over the device.
