Vecima Announces Full Availability of its DOCSIS® 4.0-Ready and 1.8 GHz 'Forever Nodes'

Vecima Networks Inc. (TSX: VCM) announced today full availability of its DOCSIS® 4.0-ready and 1.8 GHz Entra® EN8400 and SC-2D4 nodes. Termed "Forever Nodes", they provide a clear and cost-effective path to 10G by protecting operators' investment in technology-forward networks as they prepare for DOCSIS® 4.0 and advanced passive-optical network (PON) deployments.

At the 2022 CableLabs® 10G Showcase, Vecima hosted the world's first multivendor DOCSIS 4.0 demonstration to achieve 8.9 Gbps downstream and 6.2 Gbps upstream with 1.8 GHz Frequency Division Duplexing (FDD) and Remote MACPHY technology. In addition to a Vecima node, 1.8 GHz amplifiers and taps from industry partners were included.

Vecima's Entra Access Nodes simplify upgrades from hybrid fiber coax (HFC) and Distributed Access Architectures (DAA), thanks to their interoperability and state-of-the-art design for all network applications today and in the future.

  • EN8400 - Supports DOCSIS 3.1 Remote PHY today and will support future technologies, including DOCSIS 4.0, Remote MACPHY, and Remote OLT applications.
  • SC-2D4 - Supports DOCSIS 3.1 Remote MACPHY today and will support future technologies, including DOCSIS 4.0, Remote PHY, and Remote OLT applications.

"Vecima is an industry leader in Cable Access and Fiber Access technologies. As Cable Accss networks evolve to DOCSIS 4.0 and eventually migrate to Fiber Access, an investment-protection strategy is extremely important to our customers," said Ryan Nicometo, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Vecima's Video & Broadband Solutions segment. "With Vecima's 'Forever Nodes', we're reducing risk for our customers by providing a seamless and cost-effective path to whatever is next for them: Remote PHY, Remote MACPHY, DOCSIS 4.0, 10G PON, or beyond."

Vecima will highlight the EN8400 and SC-2D4 DAA Nodes at the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo, Booth 1331, Oct. 16-19 in Denver.

The Vecima Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) product portfolio, recognized by the Dell'Oro Group as the 2022 North America market share leader in Remote MACPHY and 10G-EPON Remote OLT solutions, is deployed by operators around the world. With full support for all next-generation cable access technologies, high-value legacy services, and proven interoperability, the networks of tomorrow are deployable today without compromise using Vecima's product portfolio.
