Ubee Ships 2 Million DOCSIS 3.0 Modems

Taiwanese manufacturer Ubee Interactive has shipped more than 2 million DOCSIS 3.0 cable modems and embedded multimedia terminal adapters worldwide, doubling the number since hitting the 1 million mark in August 2010.

As of Feb. 24, CableLabs had certified 10 devices from Ubee for DOCSIS 3.0 -- the most of any supplier in the industry. All told, CableLabs has certified 37 modems from 15 suppliers and 19 eMTAs from eight equipment makers. DOCSIS 3.0 allows cable operators to deliver ultra-high-speed broadband access with downstream speeds of 100 Megabits per second and higher, achieving higher throughput by bonding multiple 6-Megahertz channels together.

"The cable operators continue to take the lead in the broadband access race," Ubee Americas president Maria Popo said in a statement. "Commercial is one of the most exciting growth areas particularly after recent launches of new D3 100 Mbps services."

Across all product lines, Ubee claims more than 20 million of its devices have been deployed worldwide.

Ubee changed its name from Ambit Broadband in 2009. The company is based in Taiwan, with offices for the Americas region in Englewood, Colo., and European headquarters in Amsterdam.
