2/18/2004 7:35 AM Eastern

Electroline Equipment Inc. unveiled its first "DRM-series" family Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification modem, designed for outdoor use under the most extreme weather conditions.

"Typical consumer-grade cable modems are not designed to operate at extreme temperatures common in the outside plant of an HFC [hybrid fiber-coaxial] network," said Jay Staiger, marketing director at Electroline, in a prepared statement.

Staiger said the new modem passes surge tests specified by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
