D-Link Introduces New DOCSIS 3.0 and PacketCable-Integrated Gateways to Round Out Robust Solutions for Cable MSOs
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Oct. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — D-Link, the cost-effective standards-based unified networking solutions provider for consumers, small and medium-sized businesses, and service providers, today introduced the D-Link(®) DCM-702 Wireless N 2×2 Concurrent DOCSIS 3.0 Gateway and the PacketCable 2.0-compliant D-Link(® )DCM-704 Wireless N DOCSIS 3.0 eMTA Gateway to expand its complete solutions for home and small business networking. Delivering state-of-the-art performance, the new Gateways provide wired and wireless connections, real-time HD media streaming, gaming, and maximum Internet bandwidth for users with multiple computers and network-enabled devices running several applications at once.
The DCM-704 Gateway provides two NCS or SIP VoIP connections and simultaneous high-speed cable Internet to provide primary-line voice quality without dropped calls, while also supporting all key CLASS features for increased customer control of phone calls. Additionally, operation over the Cloud via the mydlink.com portal and TR-069 technical specification gives cable MSOs remote visibility to devices within the home or small business to easily operate and quickly troubleshoot when needed.
“The D-Link DOCSIS family allows cable MSOs to integrate several revenue-generating services onto one platform and operate them with simplicity,” said Eli Gavra, senior vice president, Service Provider Business Unit, D-Link Systems, Inc. “The remote capabilities give them the ability to provide a consistent user-experience throughout the home or small business without drilling into walls. It also creates a modular expansion for future new revenue streams.”
The DCM-702 and DCM-704 Gateways are equipped with four Gigabit Ethernet ports for ultra-fast wired networking, coupled with Wireless N/2×2 Concurrent for exceptional wireless range and speed. They increase download speeds at up to eight times more than DOCSIS 2.0 for quick and convenient file sharing, audio and video streaming and downloads, Internet TV access, and uploading websites(1), reducing network congestion for more efficient and effective broadband connections. Both modems are also backward compatible with DOCSIS 2.0 and 1.0 standards.
The two new Gateways establish a family of D-Link DOCSIS 3.0 solutions that also includes the current D-Link DCM-301 (DOCSIS 3.0 Modem), which delivers the same superior baseline performance and increased download speeds as the new Gateways.( )The DCM-301 offers fast speeds to support the integration of multi-media services, providing homes and small businesses with a complete technology for entertainment, data transfer, and wired networking.
