Terayon Debuts Cable-Modem Gateway


Terayon Communication Systems Inc. will debut its “TJ 855” cable-modem gateway with integrated 802.11g Wi-Fi wireless networking Tuesday.

The TJ 855 includes a Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification 2.0 cable modem, a four-port Ethernet router and an integrated 802.11g Wi-Fi wireless router, supporting data rates up to 54 megabits per second.

Terayon said operators can configure the TJ 855 as a simple data modem, a full-featured residential gateway or a CableHome residential gateway.

“The TJ 855 allows cable operators to deploy on a ‘pay-as-you-grow’ model, paving a clear and easy upgrade path for subscribers who later want to add managed home-networking services," Terayon vice president and general manager of home-access solutions Joseph Benigno said in a prepared statement.

“What's more, the TJ 855 can be managed remotely, virtually eliminating the need for costly truck rolls after installation,” he added.
