Terayon Gets More ‘FLEXable’10/04/2004 6:19 AM Eastern
Terayon Communication Systems Inc. said Monday that it has added functionality to its “Terayon FLEXable Plant Solution.”
The vendor described FLEXable Plant as “a carrier-class approach that delivers throughput increases of up to three times existing network results by significantly boosting modem capability without requiring expensive plant upgrades.”
One new feature, “TDMAccelerator,” eliminates the lowest-common-denominator effect of cable-data networks, which forces the vast majority of modems to operate at a throughput far below their maximum speeds.
The other, “dB boost,” overcomes network inefficiencies emanating from modems that have transmit-power shortfalls when operating at higher throughputs or modems operating in noise-challenged portions of the plant or the return spectrum.
