S-A Modem Joins EuroDOCSIS List


Scientific-Atlanta Inc.’s "WebSTAR EPC2100" cable modem has received EuroDOCSIS 2.0 certification, the vendor announced Thursday.

EuroDOCSIS 2.0-certified modems are capable of delivering triple the upstream data capacity (30 megabits per second) of EuroDOCSIS 1.0/1.1 products, S-A said.

"Success in the first-ever EuroDOCSIS 2.0-certification wave is a clear indication of our ongoing leadership in the cable-modem marketplace and our strong commitment to the European marketplace," S-A vice president and general manager for Europe, the Middle East and Asia George Stromeyer said in a release.
