NETGEAR has announced that Japanese MSO Jupiter Telecommunications (J:COM) is the first customer to deploy its new DOCSIS 3.0 Wireless-N Cable Gateway (CG3200D) for cable operators. J:COM provides cable TV, high-speed Internet, fixed telephony, and mobile communications. NETGEAR’s CG3200D enables J:COM to offer up to 160 Mbps data services as a differentiated offering in the highly competitive Japanese residential broadband market.
"We displayed the North American version at the CableLabs Summer Conference in August, where we showcased NETGEAR’s product innovation in DOCSIS, PacketCable and companion technologies for the cable market," said David James, director of product management for NETGEAR, in a statement.
The CG3200D, part of NETGEAR’s new CG3000 series, supports DOCSIS 3.0 channel bonding. The gateway is future-proof with support for Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) and is also backwards compatible with DOCSIS 2.0 and DOCSIS 1.1. It supports remote management and provisioning, simple plug-in installation, and post-installation manageability with Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). In addition, it offers 802.11n wireless and Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports so users can use their high-speed WAN and LAN connections.
