CopperGate Announces Highest Throughput in SARFT Testing at ICTC

CG3210M Delivers High Throughput per User for Ethernet Over Coax (EoC)

HANGZHOU, CHINA and TEL AVIV, ISRAEL--(Marketwire - October 25, 2009) - Today, CopperGate Communications Ltd., the Everywire Home Networking Company™, announced State Administration of Radio, Film and TV (SARFT) test results for its CopperGate CG3210M Chipset at the International Coverage and Transmission Conference (ICTC).

The SARFT results show that CopperGate has increased the effective throughput of the CopperGate CG3210M chipset, providing a 160 Mbit/s effective throughput to enable more users and the most throughput per user. The SARFT test results also show the CG3210M solution to be very robust and to have the ability to perform reliably in noisy multi-dwelling units (MDU) environments and challenging line conditions -- all without packet loss. In addition, the SARFT results show the CG3210M chipset maintains high throughput even when the number of end points increases.

Executive Quotes:

Charles Chiu, senior director for pre- and post-support, CopperGate Communications:

"CopperGate's HomePNA-based solution provides the fastest EoC technology on the market. Today, the SARFT results prove it. Now, it is clear to all MSOs which technology will deliver the most performance for the best price, without compromise on system robustness."

"The CopperGate CG3210M is the perfect solution for service providers who want to deliver high bandwidth reliably to as many customers as possible. High performance over 60 end points enables service providers to save more money by eliminating the number of masters needed."

"Today's SARFT test results show that CopperGate's HomePNA-based solutions offer MSOs a robust, cost-effective, high-bandwidth solution for delivering bi-directional, digital broadband services to individual apartments in MDUs over existing in-building coax wiring."

"With CopperGate's highly flexible HomePNA-based solution, MSOs can deliver advanced services such as broadband access, Over-the-Top services, return channel, IPTV, VoD and VoIP to residents of MDUs without worrying if they are going to run out of capacity. Today's test results show that the chipset can handle the high-throughput demands of today and the future."

Highlights / Key Facts:
