Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NYSE NYSE
See: New York Stock Exchange : TXN), a provider of DSP and analog technologies, announced on Wednesday (3 October) that it is delivering on its promise to introduce the Puma 5 family of DOCSIS 3.0-based (Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification (communications, networking) Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification - (DOCSIS) ITU-approved interface requirements for cable modems involved in high-speed data distribution over a cable television network. ) cable modem chipsets to support CableLabs DOCSIS 3.0 testing in Certification Wave 56.
According to the company, the Puma 5 family has been developed to support DOCSIS 3.0 enhanced performance and features, which enable ultra high downstream bandwidth rates of at least 160Mb/s in the residential data and voice services configuration, and 320Mb/s in video and business services configuration. In addition, the product supports greater quality of service with IPv6 and security with Advanced Encryption Standard (cryptography, algorithm) Advanced Encryption Standard - (AES) The NIST's replacement for the Data Encryption Standard (DES). The Rijndael /rayn-dahl/ symmetric block cipher, designed by Joan Daemen and Vincent Rijmen, was chosen by a NIST contest to be AES. (AES).
The Puma 5 architecture reportedly includes a multimedia processor and routing accelerator, as well as a high-performance DSP-based voice sub-system and a set of local area network (LAN) interfaces. The routing accelerator provides line rate bridging and routing capabilities and enables quality of service guarantees for voice traffic. The architecture supports 4 upstream and 4 downstream channels (4x4) and is extendable to 8 downstream channels and 4 upstream channels (8x4) to support next generation IP services. In addition, the product contains a high speed sampling engine, which enables a single tuner to be used for 4 channel operation.
The solution utilises TI's cable technology, and includes the TNETC4800, TNETC4810 and TNETC4830. The TNETC4800 supports full functionality EMTA applications and includes a battery back up subsystem, the TNETC4810 is optimized for EMTA applications without battery back up, while the TNET4830 is optimized for data cable modem applications, the company said.
No pricing details were disclosed.
