Thomson have also announced their TCM315 recently received DOCSIS 2.0 certification while DCW615 was awarded both DOCSIS1.1 and CableHome certifications. Both the TCM315 and DCW615 are currently available.
Frederic Kurkjian, General Manager, Cable Products, Europe, said: “These latest accomplishments for the Thomson line of cable modems confirms our advanced technology capabilities and we are honoured to have been recognized as one of the best modems by Mediacast. Thomson currently provide cable modems to the majority of the European cable operators and has already shipped over half a million of DOCSIS/Euro-DOCSIS modems throughout Europe.
“We are committed to providing cable operators and consumers with modems that support the latest product specifications and capabilities. To guarantee compatibility with all cable systems, these modems are backward and forward compatible, ensuring long term functionality.”
The TCW690 provides secure Internet connections through both NAT and firewall and supports BPI+ communications privacy for secure data exchange between the modem and a cable operator’s server. The gateway features both Ethernet and USB connectivity and is a simple networking solution for both wired and wireless environments. It supports encryption of data between the gateway and the wireless connected computer and an Internet security button puts the modem into stand-by mode, offering the user additional security against outside hackers.
