ADC Bows CMTS, Upgrades BPM


ADC Telecommunications Inc. introduced its "Cuda 3000" cable-modem-termination system at the Western Show Wednesday.

The Cuda 3000 -- which ADC said is the only upgradable platform, designed for more sparsely populated areas -- will be available worldwide in February.

ADC also announced the release Wednesday of version 4.2 of its "FastFlow Broadband Provisioning Manager," which it said is the only provisioning solution to simultaneously support Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification and PacketCable.

Version 4.2 adds advancements for PacketCable and CableHome device provisioning, as well as increased security for upgrading firmware in cable modems, multimedia-terminal adapters and CableHome residential gateways.
