Cable operator Comcast has deployed ARRIS Group’s TG1682 DOCSIS 3.0 gateway for its XB3 service to improve customer experience.
Comcast XB3 service will enable gigabit wireless speeds, IP video technology and integrated home automation and security capabilities to subscribers.
ARRIS TG1682 DOCSIS 3.0 residential voice gateway combines 24DS channel bonding, two analog voice lines, a 4-port Gigabit Router, MoCA 2.0 for superior in home coverage, and a Dual Band 802.11ac wireless access point into a single integrated device.
“The TG1682 can serve as the hub of the cable subscriber’s network, connecting IP-capable devices (Internet, Data, Voice and Video) throughout the customer’s home,” said Ken Klaer, senior vice president of Premises Technologies at Comcast.
The open-source software on the TG1682 is expected to serve as a key foundation for a new version of the RDK (Reference Design Kit) for broadband devices that is currently under development.
