High-Speed CG3000 DOCSIS 3.0 Wireless-N Cable Gateway with eMTA Joins Growing Family of NETGEAR Products for Cable Operators
SAN JOSE, Calif. NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQGM: NTGR) a worldwide provider of technologically innovative, branded networking solutions, today announced that its new CG3000 Wireless-N Voice/Data Cable Gateway for cable operators received DOCSIS® 3.0 and PacketCableÔ 1.5 certification in CableLabs® Certification Wave 70. While DOCSIS 3.0 specifications require support for at least four bonded channels downstream and four bonded channels upstream, the CG3000 exceeds the specification with eight bonded channels downstream. The resulting data rates of up to 320 Mbps downstream and 120 Mbps upstream enable cable operators to provide blazing-fast Internet speeds and services that are among the most advanced offerings available to residential and Small-to Medium-sized Business (SMB) customers.
“We’re very pleased to add this CG3000 DOCSIS 3.0 certification to our product portfolio. It comes on the heels of a similar achievement for our CG3100 gateway, which achieved certification last month for EuroDOCSISÔ 3.0 and EuroPacketCableÔ1.5 specifications,” said David James, director of product management for NETGEAR. “The CG3000 provides voice service capability combined with the strategic performance advantage of numerous bonded DOCSIS 3.0 channels, which gives our MSO customers a competitive advantage in Triple Play service delivery. Achieving this certification is yet another milestone in innovation for NETGEAR as we continue to expand our product line designed specifically to serve the cable market.”
NETGEAR’s certified CG3000 Cable Gateway enables service providers to offer unprecedented speeds on a Hybrid Fiber Coaxial (HFC) broadband network, as well as delivering two voice lines. The dynamic CG3000 is future-proof with Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) and is also backwards compatible with DOCSIS 2.0 and DOCSIS 1.1 specifications. It supports remote management and provisioning, simple plug-in installation, and post-installation manageability with Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). It offers both Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11n WiFi so users can take full advantage of their high-speed WAN and LAN connections for enjoying the broadest spectrum of multimedia, including IP telephony, multimedia conferencing, high performance gaming, file sharing and backup with NETGEAR StoraÔ and video streaming to PCs, mobile phones and NETGEAR’s family of Digital Entertainer media receivers.
