Teleste at ANGA COM 2014: Enabling evolution to DOCSIS 3.1

Press release

Teleste expands its product offering with new DOCSIS 3.1-compliant solutions and products.

Turku, FINLAND – 15 May 2014 – At ANGA COM 2014, Teleste, a leading provider of video and broadband technologies and related services, will announce several new products and solutions that will help cable operators and service providers on the evolutionary road to implement the upcoming DOCSIS 3.1 standard. ANGA COM 2014 will take place 20-22 May in Cologne, Germany. Teleste invites you to visit us at stand E19 in hall 10.2 and find out more about our solution for future networks.

With ever-increasing consumer demand for more broadband speed, moving towards a DOCSIS 3.1-compliant network infrastructure is a rational, evolutionary path for cable operators. Reaching up to 1.2 GHz downstream and 200 MHz upstream frequencies, DOCSIS 3.1 offers cable operators several important benefits, such as greater broadband capacity with support for up to 50% more data throughput over the same spectrum. For consumers, DOCSIS 3.1 networks make it possible to enjoy speeds of up to 10Gbps at home.

At ANGA COM 2014, Teleste will introduce several new products for improving network capacity and evolving networks towards the upcoming DOCSIS 3.1 standard. The key announcements for the show include:

DOCSIS 3.1-compliant access products

  • Teleste AC1500 and AC2500 amplifiers for DOCSIS 3.1 environments: Teleste’s new AC1500 distribution and A2500 distribution trunk amplifiers take full advantage of the DOCSIS 3.1 standard. They ensure that the downstream frequency band reaches up to 1.2 GHz and that the upstream can be easily upgraded to 200 MHz.
  • Teleste ACE8 node with wireless management and Teleste AC810 fibre optic node: Teleste’s award-winning DOCSIS 3.1 node ACE8 has been enhanced with USB and wireless Bluetoothä connectivity, making it easy to configure even on the site.
