NAPERVILLE, Ill. -- Tellabs (Nasdaq: TLAB) received industry certification from CableLabs, the cable industry's research and development consortium, for its high-speed cable device that provides voice and data services using Internet Protocol (IP). This certification, DOCSIS (Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification) 1.1, confirms that the Tellabs CVM410 embedded multimedia terminal adapter (EMTA) will operate with almost any other DOCSIS 1.1-certified cable TV equipment. The Tellabs CVM410 EMTA delivers voice-over IP primary line telephony, cable TV and high-speed data to a home or small business over a hybrid fiber- coax (HFC) network. When the Tellabs CVM410 EMTA works with other DOCSIS 1.1-certified equipment, these systems will enable operators to achieve twice the level of high-speed Internet functionality over previous standards, while reducing operating costs by half. "Our Internet-based voice and data cable devices enable our customers to offer enhanced broadband services and augment their revenue streams," said Tom Gruenwald, senior vice president and general manager of Tellabs' Broadband Access Group. "DOCSIS certification from CableLabs gives our customers assurance that our products are high-quality and have met the industry's standards for technological development and interoperability."
