IRVINE, Calif. (Jan. 8, 2014) – SMC Networks, a leading global provider of customer premises equipment (CPE) for the complete digital home, announced today it has signed a non-exclusive reseller agent agreement with Adams Cable Equipment (ACE) to distribute its Veloxite family of DOCSIS 3.0 cable modems, eMTAs and wireless gateways.
The agreement expands SMC’s distribution in the United States, Canada and parts of Latin America. It also allows ACE to add one of the industry’s most advanced family of DOCSIS 3.0 gateways to its product line. As part of the agreement, ACE will stock the Veloxite D3G0804W 8x4 data gateway, a CableLabs® certified product, as well as SMC’s other Veloxite DOCSIS 3.0 devices.
SMC’s Veloxite product portfolio has a wide range of downstream / upstream configurations, including 8x4, 16x4 and 24x8. The data and voice gateways can support multimedia over coax alliance (MoCA®), as well as a variety of wireless options, from single band 3x3 or 2x2 to 3x3 dual band dual concurrent (DBDC) and very high throughput (VHT) 802.11ac Wi-Fi for a maximized coverage and performance.
“Industry reports predict DOCSIS 3.0 CPE device shipments to reach 50 million in 2014, which shows just how fast cable operators are moving to this technology,” said ACE Chief Executive Officer Christy Adams. “It's the right time for us to expand our DOCSIS 3.0 line because our service provider customers count on us to have the most innovative products in the cable industry. This is why we are excited to partner with SMC to meet this growing demand.”
“Working with ACE gives us another industry-leading partner to help make the Veloxite product line available to as many cable operators as possible and extend our presence to new market segments,” said SMC Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Joe Wytanis. “This combines the strengths of two best-of-breed companies, and I am eagerly anticipating the impact it will have on the market.”
