Paris, November 7th, 2013 – Technicolor (Euronext Paris: TCH) announces a key technology achievement in the EuroDOCSIS 3.0 gateway technology space. Its advanced Cable Service Gateway[1] has been EuroDOCSIS 3.0 and EuroPacketCable1.5 certified by Cable Europe Labs. This certification program provides the industry with a unique instrument to improve the interoperability of products for cable systems and to verify the compliance of new products with the necessary European cable technology specifications.

Featuring the next-gen 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard for the 5GHz band and a 3x3 antenna configuration, Technicolor’s Cable Service Gateway1 enables high throughput - download speed of up to 800 Mbps over the Coax Cable - and high coverage over the much less crowded 5GHz radio frequency, allowing for the launch of more enhanced and innovative services within the home, such as 500 Mbps commercial offer or a seamless video over IP experience on any mobile device. 

Simultaneously, this Gateway guarantees seamless transmission of data services over 802.11n using the 2.4 GHz band and benefits from value-added features such as a 1 GHz tuner solution offering full band capture, a spectrum analyzer for remote diagnostics to reduce operating costs, DLNA compliant DMS and Wi-Fi HotSpot.
