COM HEM SELECTS SCIENTIFIC-ATLANTA'S PRISMA G10 CMTS.

As the popularity of high-speed Internet access grows, cable operators are looking for more efficient, flexible methods for providing service now and, as demand grows, in the future. Sweden's largest cable operator, com hem, with 1.4 million subscribers, has selected Scientific-Atlanta's Prisma G10 CMTS (Cable Modem Termination System), designed and developed by Juniper Networks for Euro-DOCSIS capability, to offer higher bandwidth to its customers in the country's eight largest cities.

As demand in com hem's service area grows for cable modems with broadband voice, video, and data services, com hem will leverage the scalability of the Prisma G10 CMTS through fast, easily implemented software and hardware upgrades. Because the Prisma G10 CMTS can allocate multiple channels per port, it supports up to 40 Mbps per upstream port compared to the typical 2.5 to 5 Mbps per port. This dramatic increase in bandwidth delivers more cable modems and more services per physical port when compared to legacy solutions -- translating into a lower CMTS cost per modem and higher ROI rewards for cable operators.

"Our customers rely heavily on the Internet and we need to provide them with fast, reliable cable modem service," said Jens Persson, technical manager at com hem. "The Prisma G10 CMTS helps us meet that need and opens the way for us to quickly expand services in the future."

"The focus of our data delivery strategy is to provide products and systems that enable cable operators to extract the most value from their networks," said Paul Coxon, vice president and managing director for the EMEA region at Scientific-Atlanta. "The combination of better RF performance and scalability via dynamic channel assignment provides unique advantages that our system gives to our customers to help them overcome any capacity issues."

Key features of the Prisma G10 CMTS include:

* Designed to be Euro-DOCSIS compliant, and DOCSIS 1.0 and 1.1 qualified

* PacketCable 1.0 compliant

* More bandwidth and more modems through superior RF performance lowers capital expenditures and increases return on investment

* Dynamic channel allocation of multiple channels per port eliminates node recombining

* DOCSIS Module can be flexibly deployed as 4 upstream by 8 downstream channels, or 4 by 16 channels

* A software key is available to field upgrade 4 by 8 channel DOCSIS Modules to 4 by 16 channels

* 160 Mbps of downstream bandwidth per DOCSIS module -- twice that of any other offering

* High-density design with 32 downstream and 128 upstream per 13 RU chassis

* Carrier-class reliability

* RF load balancing across upstream and downstream channels

* ServiceGuard Management System with integrated spectrum analysis on every port
