LOS ANGELES -
Terayon Communication Systems Inc. said it will integrate
"MetaServe' software with its line of high-speed cable equipment. The combination will lessen the need for cable-operator truck rolls by fostering self-provisioning and tiered cable modem services that link with legacy billing and customer-care platforms, the companies said.
Released at last week's Western Show, Alopa's MetaServe 1.0 software uses a graphics-based interface designed for cable networks that offer data services from multiple Internet-service providers.
