Vecima to Demonstrate DOCSIS Distributed Access Platform at INTX 2016

VICTORIA, BC --(Marketwired - May 04, 2016) -  Vecima Networks Inc. (TSX: VCM), an experienced designer and manufacturer of innovative technology in the broadband equipment market, is pleased to announce the introduction of Entra, its new DOCSIS 3.1 Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) platform, at the Internet and Television Expo to be held in Boston, Massachusetts from May 16-18, 2016. The platform will be demonstrated by Vecima during this annual cable industry event.

Vecima's Entra is a next generation access solution that consists of virtual controller software and Ethernet-centric remote access nodes supporting all distributed architectures. This approach to the network enables operators to offer multi-gigabit data rates over cable to subscribers without the excessive costs of running fiber to the home. Entra overcomes the challenges of traditional architectures by delivering highly attractive power and cost per bit while maximizing network capacity and minimizing space in already constrained hub sites.

"Vecima is excited to demonstrate our next generation access solution at INTX and to discuss how Entra will benefit network operators as capacity continues to grow exponentially," said Sumit Kumar, Vecima Networks' President and CEO. He adds, "Our network architecture facilitates the delivery of existing video and data services over hybrid fiber coax (HFC), passive optical networks (PON), and direct Ethernet connections. The Entra distributed access platform is the most efficient path to DOCSIS 3.1."
