Javelin Partners Up
Arris, which already distributes Javelin's older 3GHz overlay technology, will now be doing the same for Javelin's new upstream-expanding 1.8GHz "drop in" faceplate modules and full-blown 2.8GHz taps -- products that Light Reading Cable exposed exclusively last week. (See Vyyo Gear Lives On (at Arris) and Javelin Jabs at Gigabit Cable Upstream .)
The 1.8GHz product will be given higher consideration for existing hybrid fiber/coax (HFC) plant since the "drop in" modules don't require any resizing of coax or network rebuilds. The 2.8GHz product is targeted to new builds.
Javelin will be showing off the new gear this week in New Orleans at the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) Cable-Tec Expo (check our SCTE Show Site for more), so we'll be sure to run by there and see what's what.
