Mediacom deploys Hitron WiFi 6 Gateway
With selection of CODA-5519 gateway, Mediacom is at the forefront of the Wi-Fi 6 revolution
Centennial, CO – October 14, 2020 – Hitron Technologies, the fastest growing DOCSIS customer premise equipment (CPE) manufacturer in North America, today announced that Mediacom, the fifth largest cable operator in the United States, is deploying the CODA-5519 DOCSIS 3.1 WiFi 6 gateway. Hitron is one of three CPE solution providers selected by Mediacom to deliver the next evolution of wireless networking to its customer base.
The powerful CODA-5519 gateway supports DOCSIS 3.1 and next generation WiFi 6 for the ultimate digital home experience. Subscribers will enjoy stunning 8K streaming, stutter-free gaming, a flawless smart home and new immersive experiences.
In 2017, Mediacom was the first major U.S. cable company to launch 1 Gig Internet across its national network. Now, Mediacom is reinforcing its leadership position by rolling out Wi-Fi 6.
WiFi 6 is a new wireless standard that delivers faster speeds, higher density and faster throughput to meet growing traffic demands. It’s capable of providing Wi-Fi speeds up to 9.6 Gbps and four times the device capacity of previous standards.
“Our goal has always been to deliver ultra-fast speeds in all the communities we serve. Hitron’s CODA-5519, along with WiFi 6, will give our subscribers future-proof speeds inside the home and small business, helping them better address today’s work and education challenges due to the COVID crisis, as well as meet tomorrow’s opportunities,” said JR Walden, Mediacom’s CTO.
“We’re so proud to be working with Mediacom on this initiative. They’ve been a leader in Gigabit Internet across rural and urban communities. The CODA-5519 will provide them with the performance, reliability and scalability to meet America’s ever-growing Internet demands, today and tomorrow,” said Greg Fisher, President at Hitron-Americas.
The CODA-5519 supports DOCSIS 3.1 2×2 multi-carrier OFDM and DOCSIS 3.0 32×8 channel bonding for deployment flexibility.
