July 29, 2019
Technicolor’s Connected Home business has shipped more than 4 million units of DOCSIS 3.1 devices to cable providers in the EMEA, APAC, and Americas regions. In North America, the leading cable providers accounted for the deployment of 3 million units, with Latin America and Eurasia shipping an additional 1 million units.
The company says the milestone solidifies the leadership position that the company has established and maintained since network service providers around the world began the rapid process of adoption of DOCSIS 3.1 technology in 2017. Technicolor has worked with network service providers around the globe to provide customer premises equipment that delivers ultra-broadband access, as well as the services and applications that depend on bandwidth intensive infrastructures.
“The pace at which the industry has embraced this technology speaks to how committed cable operators around the world are to meet the surging expectations and demands from their broadband users. DOCSIS 3.1 is creating new opportunities for innovation over existing cable infrastructures by enabling operators to deliver ultra-broadband services to their homes,” said Luis Martinez-Amago, Deputy CEO Technicolor, President of Connected Home. “Technicolor is the leading supplier to large North American cable operators including Comcast, Charter, Cox, Rogers, Videotron and Shaw, and we have also partnered with service providers like Vodafone Group, Telecom Argentina, Mediacom and WoW to bring new broadband intensive services to users. Our reach with this technology is expanding rapidly with support from key distribution partners, including Normann Engineering, Scansatec and Klonex.”
