Pace has announced that its D5001 ‘Ultra’ DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Gateway has earned the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR. The device is the first DOCSIS 3.0 modem to receive an ENERGY STAR certification in the category for Small Network Equipment (SNE).
The Pace D5001 Ultra Gateway uses 24 bonded DOCSIS channels to deliver a new generation of high-speed data and media services, while still meeting energy efficiency levels set by the EPA. Consumers can now use high-powered, Dual Band Wi-Fi (802.11 AC/N) and integrated MoCA 2.0 coax cable networking to connect wireless set-top boxes, media servers, IP set-top boxes, computers, tablets, smart phones, and gaming consoles to a more environmentally friendly gateway.
“As a company at the forefront of digital TV and broadband technology, being an environmentally responsible business is extremely important to Pace. We are delighted to be the first company to launch an ENERGY STAR qualified DOCSIS 3.0 gateway to add to our long list of ‘firsts’ in energy efficiency,” said Robert Turner, Approvals Manager, Pace Americas, LLC. “Environmental responsibility delivers value to our customers and our business. We fully appreciate the partnership with the EPA, and look forward to continued collaboration to support energy-efficient design and innovation across our entire portfolio of products.”
“The EPA congratulates Pace for continuing to put energy efficiency at the forefront of its product design,” said Una Song, Program Manager, ENERGY STAR Program. “Using ENERGY STAR certified products helps consumers reduce their utility bills and protect the environment.”
