TERAYON LAUNCHES TJ 900 FAMILY OF EMTAS.
The TJ 900 family has been designed for the cost-effective delivery of two lines per household of primary or secondary line Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephony, in addition to supporting high-speed Internet access. The two current TJ 900 models are the PacketCable-certified TJ 945 and the TJ 955. Both are designed for internal home use, utilize proven chipsets from Texas Instruments and are based on DOCSIS and EuroDOCSIS cable data and PacketCable voice specifications.
"Cable operators worldwide are expanding their rollouts of VoIP telephony and broadband Internet access, driving their need for all-in-one solutions that make it easy for their subscribers to enjoy both services," said Kanaiya Vasani, Terayon vice president of product marketing. "Combining support for industry standards with high performance, features and functionality, our next-generation TJ 900 eMTA family will help us expand our markets, build on the success we are already experiencing with eMTAs and provide cable operators worldwide with a compelling voice and data solution."
The TJ 945 was recently certified to meet both the PacketCable 1.0 specification for cable VoIP service, and the DOCSIS 2.0 cable modem specification. The TJ 945 has been specifically designed for secondary line VoIP service in which a battery backup is not required. This is an advantage for cable operators rolling out secondary line VoIP services in one or more cable systems in order to build initial market share, rather than spending more time and money at the outset to offer primary line service.
The TJ 945 is complemented by the TJ 955, which supports primary line VoIP service. The TJ 955 accomplishes this with its integrated battery backup, which provides eight hours of standby time or five hours of talk-time that will allow cable operators to continue delivering critical voice services in the event of local power outages. Operators can double the standby and talk-time with the addition of an optional second battery. The TJ 955 utilizes the same hardware design as the PacketCable-certified TJ 945, with the addition of the battery backup functionality. Terayon plans to submit the TJ 955 at the next CableLabs certification wave that supports both DOCSIS 2.0 and PacketCable 1.5 certification testing.
