Megacable implements Docsis 3.1 in Mexico with Technicolor’s gateways

Technicolor announces that the Mexican cable operator Megacable is delivering the latest cable access technology to meet growing demand for bandwidth-intensive offerings. Megacable is deploying the country’s first Docsis 3.1 services with gateways from Technicolor Connected Home. 

‘Megacable is once again demonstrating its market leadership in Mexico by meeting the rapidly growing demand for bandwidth as consumers bring more connected devices into their homes and sign up for new network-intensive services’, said Mercedes Pastor, President of the Global Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) Business Unit for Technicolor Connected Home. ‘Technicolor has worked closely with the Megacable team to deliver the level of performance consumers in Mexico expect and deserve’. she added.

Miguel Sol, Megacable’s CTO, explained that ‘Megacable’s customers will be able to download data up to 1 gigabit per second. This will allow us to support emerging applications and services, such as next-generation gaming, video and other cloud-based offerings’, and added that ‘we are already in the process of bringing the Docsis 3.1 gateways from Technicolor Connected Home to market’.

The Technicolor Connected Home gateway brings gigabit and above access speeds into and out of Mexican households while providing enhanced in-home wireless network performance. This will help consumers experience better services as multiple devices in the home compete for wireless LAN resources and access to cloud services. The latest security measures and protocols are also included in the Technicolor DOCSIS 3.1 gateway. The ability to support multiple services in an effective and secure manner is made possible because the Technicolor Connected Home CPE supports RDK-B, a popular and widely deployed open-source standard for gateway software. This allows devices and applications from multiple providers to interoperate in an integrated manner.
