CopperGate Communications has announced the CG3210M chipset, a HomePNA-based solution for MDU and hospitality applications. The chipset is designed to deliver up to 190 Mbps of IP traffic and is a third of the price for DOCSIS 3.0-based solutions to deliver the same throughput.
The company has doubled the communications bandwidth of the chipset. More than 60 end points in apartments or hotel rooms can be supported with a single master device. In addition, the new solution is optimized to work in older infrastructure often found in emerging markets. The application uses the existing coax infrastructure and is known as Ethernet over Coax (EoC).
