Vodafone Germany has announced a partnership with Commscope to deploy the network solutions provider’s Touchstone TG6442 DOCSIS 3.1 cable gateways.
The TG6442 gateway will be available to “millions of subscribers” and promises to improve in-home Wi-Fi connections and deliver faster broadband speeds with lower latency.
The tech supports high split to meet the demand for increased upstream capacity with a switched diplexer for flexible deployment. It also features RDK-B software which Vodafone said would improve in-home consumer applications.
Markus Delfs, head of group hardware solutions, Vodafone, said: “CommScope has been instrumental in delivering truly innovative gateways to our customers. By deploying the TG6442 cable gateway, we continue to rollout high-speed gigabit services, improve our customers’ Wi-Fi and provide them with the connectivity they have come to expect.”
Anthony Zuyderhoff, SVP, Global Sales and Marketing, Home Networks, CommScope, said: “The TG6442 gateways allows service providers like Vodafone Germany to deliver multi-gigabit data rates to their customers’ homes. The long-term relationship we have with Vodafone Germany is a prime example of how important collaboration is when launching new and innovative gateways that will serve as the hub for home networks, connecting all IP capable devices with enhanced reliability.”
