GENT, Belgium -- The Euro-DOCSIS Certification Board (ECB) announces that in the first Euro-DOCSIS 2.0 testing wave it granted the certification status for three Euro-DOCSIS 2.0 cable modems.

It has also granted certification for one Euro-DOCSIS 1.0 and one Euro-DOCSIS 1.1 cable modem and the Euro-DOCSIS 1.1 qualification status to one CMTS in Euro-DOCSIS Certification Wave 13. To date, 10 Euro-DOCSIS 1.1 cable modems from 6 suppliers are certified and 11 Euro-DOCSIS 1.1 CMTSs from 6 suppliers are qualified. Additionally, the one Euro-DOCSIS 1.0 modem brings the number of certified Euro-DOCSIS 1.0 cable modems to 40.

Motorola and Scientific Atlanta are the two vendors with the first certified Euro-DOCSIS 2.0 cable modems. Motorola was successful with two modems, SURFboard SB5100E and SBG900E, the latter with a wireless interface. The WebSTAR EPC2100 of Scientific Atlanta also received the Euro-DOCSIS 2.0 certified status.

Furthermore, Motorola was also certified for Euro-DOCSIS 1.1 with its SURFboard SBG900E cable modem. Arris received Euro-DOCSIS 1.1 qualification for its CMTS Cadant C3. Ambit was granted Euro-DOCSIS 1.0 certification for its 08004EU cable modem.

The ECB now consists of 10 European cable operators (Bosch Breitbandnetze, Casema, Essent, Ish, NetCologne, NTL, Tele Columbus, Telenet, Telewest and UPC). In ECB, the Euro-DOCSIS Certification Board grants certification to Euro-DOCSIS 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0 compliant cable modems, and the qualified status to CMTS equipment and cable modems in DVB-C set-top boxes, based on lab tests completed by tComLabs.
