IRVINE, Calif. -- SMC Networks(R) Broadband Development Group, a leading provider of reliable, high-performance consumer and commercial solutions for the broadband MSO and cable CPE markets, today announced that it has begun shipping the SMC DOCSIS 2.0 Draft 11n Wireless Cable Modem Gateway (SMC8014WN-RES), an all-in-one networking solution that incorporates a DOCSIS 2.0 cable modem, dual-band draft 802.11n wireless access point, four-port 10/100 router, and advanced SPI firewall.

The SMC8014WN-RES offers dual-band 2.4Ghz and 5GHz 802.11n to provide higher throughput while maintaining compatibility with legacy devices based upon the 802.11b/g technology. The SMC8014WN-RES was designed to address the current and real challenges facing SMC's multiple system operator (MSO) partners. The new cable modem gateway delivers speed enhancements on both the WAN and LAN side that enable MSOs to meet their premium speed tiers in a DOCSIS 2.0 environment.

"As a function of the economic climate, capital expenditures are tightening up. Subsequently, DOCSIS 3.0 deployments aren't as aggressive as planned 18 months ago," explained Todd Babic, Vice President of Sales, Broadband Business Development for North America. "However, competition in the telecommunications and retail sectors is driving consumer demand for speed enhancements on both the WAN and LAN sides. In true SMC fashion, we've developed a unique product that addresses these current and real challenges facing our MSO partners."
