Success for EuroPacketCable 2.0 interop week

Eleven vendors have successfully demonstrated the interoperability between their products at an EuroPacketCable 2.0 Interop week at the Excentis base in Ghent, Belgium.

Broadcom Corporation, Casa Systems, Compal Broadband Networks, Hitron Technologies, Incognito Software, Intel, IPgallery, Motorola Mobility, Sinicnet, Technicolor, Ubee Interactive) tested their EuroPacketCable 2.0 product between December 10 and 14.

“Leading cable operators in Europe are looking at introducing a variety of new services to the consumer in both a flexible and cost-effective manner. The standard that enables this is EuroPacketCable. The interoperability event hosted by Excentis clearly put on show forward momentum made by some of our key vendor partners to bring EuroPacketCable 2.0 products to market for implementation in our networks across Europe,” says Peter Percosan, Managing Director of Cable Europe Labs.

EuroPacketCable 2.0 is the next version of the EuroPacketCable set of specifications. While EuroPacketCable 1.0/1.5 focused on the delivery of fixed telephony services over a cable network, the 2.0 version is based on the IP Multimedia Subsystem standard (IMS) and enables cable operators to rapidly deploy new services beyond fixed telephony.
