5:10 PM -- With a modem from Hitron Technologies Inc. getting the Docsis 3.0-certification stamp from CableLabs following Wave 61, it's time again to update our list of gear that's been approved for the super-speedy spec. (See Hitron Breaks the Docsis 3.0 Barrier.)

It's possible that more gear could come through Wave 62 with passing grades for Docsis 3.0, so we'll keep our eyes peeled.
