Adelphia Buys Terayon DOCSIS 2.0 Modems


Terayon Communication Systems Inc. said Adelphia Communications Corp. is
taking delivery of the company's 'TJ 615' Data Over Cable Service Interface
Specification 2.0 modem.

"We're moving forward aggressively with our successful `Power Link' broadband
service, and adding Terayon's TJ 615 to our modem inventory will greatly assist
us in meeting our growing demand," said Herb Shirey, Adelphia's vice president
of residential data, in a prepared statement.

Terayon said the modem is certified to meet DOCSIS 1.1 specifications and is
based on the DOCSIS 2.0 spec, which would allow Adelphia to deploy advanced
tiered services.

The company said three of the country's top six modem vendors are deploying
DOCSIS 2.0-based modems.
