TEXAS INSTRUMENTS DOCSIS 1.1 PRODUCTS SUPPORT ADVANCED TDMA TODAY.

Texas Instruments Incorporated (NYSE:TXN) (TI) will demonstrate end-to-end system interoperability of data over cable service interface specifications (DOCSIS) 1.1 products that include advanced time division multiple access (A-TDMA) technology at the NCTA Cable 2002 show in New Orleans, May 6-8. TI is working with industry leaders to accelerate DOCSIS 2.0 interoperability and standards compliance testing by successfully demonstrating the A-TDMA physical layer on multiple manufacturers' cable modem platforms. All TI-based DOCSIS 1.1 cable modem products shipping today are A-TDMA ready.

"Cisco fully supports DOCSIS 2.0 and will participate in this technology demonstration using the Cisco uBR10012 CMTS router," said John Mattson, director of marketing for Cisco's Cable Business Unit. "This interoperability demonstration of A-TDMA is an important step toward realization of the standard."

As one of the pioneers and co-developers of A-TDMA technology, TI is enabling operators to provide enhanced services today, such as telephony, videoconferencing, telecommuting and peer-to-peer services. TI is committed to meeting market demand for DOCSIS 2.0, including support for both A-TDMA and synchronous code division multiple access (S-CDMA) in its next generation products.

"Including A-TDMA as a feature addition to our DOCSIS 1.1 products provides an important advantage to our customers," said Dennis Rauschmayer, director marketing for TI's Broadband Cable Group. "TI has supported all DOCSIS standards including DOCSIS 2.0. We are pleased to extend TI's leadership and expertise in DOCSIS 1.1 technology as we work with our customers and other industry leaders in the development, interoperability testing and deployment of DOCSIS 2.0."

A-TDMA significantly increases upstream throughput in cable systems to 30 Megabits per second (Mbps), a factor of three times higher than the 10 Mbps systems offered today. In addition, spectral efficiency is increased by 50 percent, providing more economical use of the frequencies allocated for high-speed data services in the cable plant. A-TDMA also addresses the common channel impairments by mitigating the burst and impulse noise present throughout the channel.

For OEMs developing broadband communications solutions, TI's advanced signal processing-based silicon and software platforms deliver the optimal performance, lower power consumption, and system level integration required to rapidly deploy differentiated next generation products for cable modems, digital subscriber line (xDSL) modems, integrated access devices (IADs), Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) gateways, carrier infrastructure, and home and office wireless networking.
