"We are extremely pleased that we now have the range of certifications necessary to sell our new DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem at retail in North America," said Zoom President and CEO Frank Manning. "Zoom is among a very limited number of manufacturers who have the retail relationships, technical expertise, production capabilities, and customer support infrastructure needed to accomplish this."
Consumers purchasing a Zoom cable modem eliminate cable modem rental charges. These charges vary by service provider, and are typically about $60 per year.
DOCSIS 3.0 is the latest standard for the cable industry, and allows Model 5341 to operate at speeds up to 172 Mbps. Zoom also supplies its lower speed DOCSIS 2.0 Model 5241 to leading U.S. retailers and to other key accounts. Detailed information about models 5241 and 5341 is available at www.zoom.com/cable.
