COX DEPLOYS CUDA 1000 CABLE MODEM TERMINATION SYSTEMS.
The Cuda 1000, based on the carrier-class Cuda 12000 Internet Protocol (IP) Access Switch, the market leader in the deployment of DOCSIS 1.1 carrier-class platforms, provides advanced IP services for small regions of a large MSO's network as well as business-to-business environments such as hospitals, multi-dwelling units and universities. With one of the highest density port counts of all systems in the compact CMTS category, the Cuda 1000 supports broadband data, commercial and tiered data services, streaming video, and multiple ISP access.
"The Cuda 1000 CMTS platforms installed in our network are performing up to our high expectations," said Jay Rolls, vice president of data engineering for Cox. "Our Kansas network serves many small rural areas across the state, and our customers demand top performance and extremely high reliability. The Cuda 1000s give us the same excellent results as the Cuda 12000s installed in Cox's larger networks, reducing the need for truck rolls and keeping a cap on our IP services management costs."
"When we designed the Cuda 1000, we aimed for a high-performance CMTS in a compact platform to lower the cost of entry for new revenue generating IP services," said Hilton Nicholson, president of the IP Cable Business Unit at ADC. "The Cuda 1000 meets an MSO's need for advanced IP services, including tiered data, streaming video, and multiple ISP access, giving these network operators the reliability they and their customers demand."
Offering Standards-Based, Revenue-Generating IP Services
The Cuda 1000 offers the performance of the larger Cuda 12000 IP Access Switch in a compact model that integrates an edge router and upconverter into a single chassis. This integration reduces cost, saves rack space and enhances reliability by minimizing possible points of failure. The Cuda 1000 supports industry standards such as DOCSIS 1.1 (Data Over Cable Service Interface Specifications,) allowing operators to integrate the Cuda 1000 into networks that contain DOCSIS-certified equipment from a wide range of vendors.
The Cuda 1000 provides one downstream channel, either four or six upstream channels, and four 10/100BaseT Ethernet ports allowing multiple IP network connections. Multiple dedicated processors for wire-speed packet and protocol processing provide peak performance, support for routing information protocol (RIP) V2 and open shortest path first (OSPF) routing.
In addition, the Cuda 1000 incorporates ADC's SpectraFlow Quality of Service (QoS) architecture that enables multiple revenue sources through tiered service levels for residential and commercial data subscribers. A combination of per-flow queuing and a hierarchy of class and priority-based scheduling guarantee that services of the same priority level gain equal access to the network, an important feature for multiple ISP access and commercial service applications.
ADC tailors custom solutions of network equipment, software and systems integration services that enable communications service providers to deliver high-speed Internet, data, video and voice services to consumers and businesses worldwide. ADC (Nasdaq:ADCT) has sales into nearly 100 countries and is included in the Standard & Poor's 500 Index and the Nasdaq 100 Index.
