CableLabs & EuroCableLabs Ink New Deal
Cable Guy Alan Breznick, Cable/Video Practice Leader, Light Reading 6/8/2006
Under the agreement, EuroCableLabs will gain access to CableLabs' DOCSIS and PacketCable specifications and test plans, including draft specs and proposed engineering changes. This change is designed to allow European adaptations to be included in the specs while the standards are still being developed.
EuroCableLabs will also gain access to CableLabs' acceptance and compliance test plans, which are used as part of the equipment certification and qualification testing process. The two organizations say the deal will promote the international interoperability of cable tech gear on both sides of the Atlantic.
