New pilot projects
posted: 01. 11. 2013
We have 13 pilot projects connected in our pilot monitoring server already. To these CMTS, there is currently connected a total number of 888 modems and the number is still increasing. We are currently implementing new pilot project in Greenland, which is managed in cooperation with Greenland Television APS. We would like to point out the fact that these are still pilot projects, and all other live installations aren't mentioned within this summary.
First pilot project abroad with company HFC Technics Hungary

Based on the tests, which were conducted by our partner HFC Technics in Hungary, we have verified that the miniCMTS concept is working as a stable and high performance product.
Second pilot project in Cable TV network
posted: 23. 03. 2013
Our second pilot project was related to cable television. We achieved this with the help of a smaller network Operator in northern Moravia. In the initial stage, the network was the size of a larger village, which is operated by cable modems ARRIS1000 (the actual number of cable modems was 170). We equally installed DOCSIS 1.1 and DOCSIS 2.0 modems.
Since the network did not include DOCSIS 3.0 modems, we started off by installing miniCMTS to the existing CMTS ARRIS and through the configuration of the documents we began to transfer the DOCSIS 2.0 modem under the administration of miniCMTS. With this exercise, we confirmed that the operation of two CMTS, one classic and one mini, is possible and runs smoothly. At the same time, we tested the process of gradual transfer from one CMTS to the other.
Until this day, 50 modems fall under the administration of miniCMTS and in the coming days we are planning to add additional modems.

Pilot project with miniCMTS as Common antena application
posted: 10. 03. 2013
In mid February, we launched our first pilot project. Within this project (joint television antenna) we succeeded in installing DOCSIS channels in the downstream and upstream directions. Our compact device is developed based on the standards defined by DOCSIS + EuroDOCSIS 2.0 and 3.0 with holds a capacity of 16 downstream and 14 upstream channels. At present, we utilize only 8 of the total of 16 downstream channels, since we are using cable modems that are available only in the 8x4 versions.
Our testing in a real network has been running for several weeks and a total of 23 clients have already joined to participate in our project. Stability has been excellent, with no reboots or fundamental loss within the service. Speeds achieved with the use of the Motorola 5100 DOCSIS 2.0 modem are 35Mbit/s, non aggregate. With the use of Cisco EPC3010 DOCSIS 3.0 modems, we’ve achieved a speed of 330Mbit/s.
