Adelphia Rolling Out Terayon DOCSIS 2.0 Gear


Adelphia Communications Corp. has deployed more than 200 Terayon Communication Systems Inc. "BW DOCSIS" Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification 2.0 cable-modem-termination systems, the vendor announced Monday.

The Terayon gear enables the MSO to offer its "Power Link" and "Power Link Premier" high-speed-data services with added bandwidth for faster upload and download speeds.

"The complete Terayon DOCSIS 2.0 solution allows us to stay ahead of our broadband competition by optimizing bandwidth and maximizing our existing infrastructure to offer higher speeds with greater reliability," Adelphia chief technology officer Marwan Fawaz said in a prepared statement.

Adelphia selected Terayon as one of its primary CMTS vendors after a successful and comprehensive trial in its Los Angeles network, Terayon said.
