Late last week, Arris said the 702G, which packs in support for high-speed Internet and VOIP services, became the first 3.0-certified model to also receive certification for PacketCable 1.5. (See Arris EMTA Gets 3.0 Stamp.)
But it wasn't the only device that could claim that distinction for long. On Monday, June 9, CableLabs announced that the Motorola Inc. (NYSE: MOT) SBV6220 E-MTA also made it through Wave 59 with re-certification for Docsis 3.0 and a fresh certification for PacketCable 1.5. (See Arris, Moto Get PacketCable'd.)
Both the 702G and the SBV6220 originally obtained Docsis 3.0 certification following Wave 58. (See Modems, CMTSs Break Docsis 3.0 Barrier .)
With those additions, here's a refresh on the list of modems and cable modem termination systems (CMTSs) that have passed Docsis 3.0 muster so far.
