Mexican cable operator Megacable is deploying DOCSIS 3.1-based gigabit broadband services with gateway devices from Technicolor (Euronext Paris:TCH) Connected Home.
"Megacable is once again demonstrating its market leadership in Mexico by meeting the rapidly growing demand for bandwidth as consumers bring more connected devices into their homes and sign up for new network-intensive services," said Mercedes Pastor, president of the Global Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) Business Unit for Technicolor Connected Home. "Technicolor has worked closely with the Megacable team to deliver the level of performance consumers in Mexico expect and deserve."
The Technicolor Connected Home CPE supports the RDK-B open-source software standard.
"Megacable customers will be able to download data up to 1 Gbps. This will allow us to support emerging applications and services, such as next-generation gaming, video and other cloud-based offerings," said Miguel Sol, chief technology officer for Megacable. "We are already in the process of bringing the DOCSIS 3.1 gateways from Technicolor Connected Home to market."
"There has never been more traffic containing sensitive personal information flowing to and from households in Mexico. With the Technicolor Connected Home gateway, Megacable will be able to assure subscribers that their data is always being protected. This will provide peace of mind as consumers use the services they desire," said Gerardo Seifert, chief marketing officer for Megacable.
Megacable has presence in 26 states and more than 350 municipalities, with more than 3.2 million paid TV subscribers, more than 3.0 million broadband subscribers and more than 2.0 million for telephony.
