Pico Digital Introduces New miniCMTS Designed for Smaller Private Cable Networks

Cost-Effective Solution Combines High-Speed Data Delivery of 800 Mbps Downstream and 120 Mbps Upstream With Support for 400 DOCSIS Cable Modems

SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- Sept. 22, 2014 -- Pico Digital, a worldwide leader in providing comprehensive multi-media delivery solutions to customers in the broadband, satellite, cable, and broadcast markets, today introduced a new mini cable modem termination system (miniCMTS) optimized for multi-family residential applications, private networks, and small cable providers. Sporting a rich feature set at a low price point, the miniCMTS200a combines high-speed data delivery with support for 400 DOCSIS cable modems and an intuitive Web interface.

Part of Pico Digital's all-digital CONDOR solution, the low-cost miniCMTS200a supports up to 400 DOCSIS 2.0 modems, or 250 DOCSIS 3.0 plus 150 DOCSIS 2.0 modems. The unit offers 16 downstream bonded channels for up to 800-Mbps downstream and four upstream channels offering 120-Mbps upstream data delivery, while its extensive Web interface allows for simple configuration, management, and debugging.

The miniCMTS200a allows high-speed data services to be provided cost-effectively to commercial residential properties and academic and medical facilities, as well as the hospitality industry. The unit's high bandwidth easily copes with today's demand for over-the-top video services or managed IPTV services.

"Our miniCMTS200a is ideal for MDUs, private networks, and anyone with a small cable network looking to introduce broadband or triple-play services to their customers," said Andrew Isherwood, CTO of Pico Digital. "Previously, these applications had a choice of purchasing very expensive boxes which support thousands of modems or buying low-cost, low-bandwidth refurbished units. The miniCMTS200a offers a better solution, providing smaller networks with the functionality and bandwidth they need without paying for additional modem support."
