SMC Networks Partners with Capella in Canada

Resell agreement covers SMC’s Veloxite™ DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modems, eMTAs and Wireless Gateways.

IRVINE, California / PETERBOROUGH, Ontario (July 7, 2014) – SMC Networks, a leading global provider of customer premises equipment (CPE) for the complete digital home, today announces it has signed a reseller agent agreement with Capella Telecommunications to distribute SMC’s Veloxite family of DOCSIS 3.0 cable modems, eMTAs and wireless gateways to Tier 2 and Tier 3 operators in Canada.

SMC started to launch the Veloxite family in 2013 to provide cable operators with a complete portfolio of downstream/upstream channel configurations including 8×4, 16×4 and 24×8 for their residential, small office/home office and small-medium business markets. Overall, eight CPEs have received CableLabs® Certification in the
last year, with more 24×8 and 32×8 products in the process of being developed.

“We tried SMC’s products in our own cable operations, and the overall performance, especially that of Wi-Fi reach and range, convinced us to distribute these devices to other Canadian operators” explained Capella President, Norm Slater. “Capella allows SMC to expand ever further its distribution reach into Canada, which is a key market for us” added SMC Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Joe Wytanis.
