UPC Broadband is to deploy a new EMTA from Technicolor as part of its EuroDOCSIS 3.0 service. The TWG870 will be rolled out in the Netherlands, Poland and Austria. It will fully automate the subscriber installation process.
“Technicolor was able to deliver a complete package which makes it very easy for our subscribers to install and set up themselves. The new TWG870 is a very powerful end-user-friendly product,” said Karen Kinsey, VP supply chain management at UPC Broadband.
The TWG870 incorporates voice telephony with a four-port gigabit Ethernet router and 802.11n wireless connectivity. It allows the bonding of up to eight downstream channels, offering internet access speeds of up to 300Mb/s to the home. Support of the 802.11n standard greatly increases the range as well as speed of access on the home network.
