UPC to roll out home networking offer with Technicolor EMTAs

Liberty Global-owned UPC Broadband has ordered enhanced multimedia terminal adapters (EMTAs) from Technicolor as part of its plan to offer a new premium offering including wired and wireless networking on its digital cable networks.

This move follows the successful deployment of first-generation integrated WiFi EMTAs over the past 18 months and marks the transition to EuroDOCSIS 3.0 capability. This new device, which automates installation for each subscriber, will be rolled out in several European countries including the Netherlands, Poland and Austria.
