OneAccess Networks Launches Integrated DOCSIS 3.0 for the One Series of Multi-Service Routers
By Meenakshi Shankar, TMCnet Contributor
OneAccess (News - Alert) Networks, a manufacturer of multi-service routers and Ethernet access devices, unveiled a CableLabs-certified, integrated DOCSIS 3.0 interface for its One Series portfolio of multi-service routers (MSRs).
Integrated DOCSIS 3.0 is another proof point of OneAccess' commitment to lead the evolution of the MSR from a Layer 3 centric network element to a cloud-based application delivery solution. The company's One Series with integrated DOCSIS 3.0 reduces the number of appliances required to deploy managed cloud services to the SMB and enterprise.
The DOCSIS 3.0 capability is initially available as an option for the OneAccess One700 PRI product configuration. With this availability cable operators can realize significant CAPEX and OPEX (News - Alert) advantages, including improved CAPEX ROI, simplified element management, reduced inventory, higher quality of service performance, reduced field technician training and customer service call load.
In a statement, Dennis R. Gatens, vice president and general manager of OneAccess Networks, North America, mentioned that cable operators have been seeking a multi-service router portfolio with integrated DOCSIS 3.0 capabilities so they can better leverage their HFC network infrastructure for managed services delivery to the SMB and enterprise.
Gatens confirmed that the company’s integrated DOCSIS 3.0 demonstrates its continued commitment to listening to the needs of its customers and aligning its product roadmaps with their requirements to deliver greater value to the service provider.
With a CableLabs (News - Alert)-certified embedded cable modem module, subsequent releases on the One100, One700 and One540 will support the range of SIP trunking and hosted PBX (News - Alert) services that cable operators offer to their SMB and enterprise customers, while supporting a cloud-based services roadmap.
OneAccess’ One Series allows cable operators to realize the added benefits of integrated enterprise session border controllers and application visibility, control and optimization features that are necessary for the delivery of high-value managed cloud services.
The company is planning to make available the One700C PRI configuration for lab evaluation in Q1 2013, and is expecting to make the product generally available from Q2 2013.
Back in October, OneAccess Networks launched OneOptimization, an integrated application performance monitoring and optimization solution that improves the way business users experience cloud services.
