Ambit Supplies pre-DOCSIS 3.0 Channel Bonding Modems to Hanaro

Ambit is supplying pre-DOCSIS 3.0 cable modems to Korea's Hanaro that can bond three downstream channels to enable a maximum 144Mbps downstream and up to 30Mbps upstream throughput. The modem also supports proprietary features such as Gigabit Ethernet and USB 2.0 interfaces, bonding channel recovery and QoS features enabling IPTV service. Also, the pre DOCSIS 3.0 modems promise future interoperability with full DOCSIS 3.0 CMTS and cable modems when they become available.

Ambit and Netwave, a Korean network integrator, said they plan to deliver 150,000 channel bonding cable modems to Hanaro during the second quarter.
