Who else makes 24x8 cable modems/gateways

When I googe "24x8 cable modem" the bulk of the hits are for Hitron so it looks like they have a big lead in this market.  There is a story about the SMC Veloxite D3G2408W from CES a couple of weeks ago.  There is a link which mentions that some of Cisco's software can support 24x8 but I don't see a link to actual hardware products.  And I don't find anything when googling for Motorola 24x8.

 

So unless this Hitron issue is resolved soon it doesn't look like there are a ton of options for Rogers to switch to.

Yeah, i think that is a big part of the problem.

Moterola has nothing in that range.. havent heard anything of them making one that way.. dont know if they ever plan to.

 

SMC i think has stoped as well Smiley Sad

No SMC is the only other company that I can find that has a 24x7 modem - they were showing it off at CES - here is a story from Jan 7, 2014 http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20140107006883/en/SMC-Networks-Expands-Veloxite%E2%84%A2-DOCSI...

Unfortunately another gateway.. would be nice of a modem only.

HITRON has both 24*8 modem and a gateway. Gateways are CGN3 and CGN4 and the modem is CDA-32372

It would have been nice if Rogers had given us an opportunity to purchase those modems...

Re: Who else makes 24x8 cable modems/gateways

I would prefer a modem as well, but only if it is reliable.  I can live with a Gateway in bridge mode, although it is annoying to pay extra for features that you permanently shut off.

 

SMC's press release from CES contained the name of their VP of Marketing.  I emailed him and told him that he should be selling that product to Rogers since they are having major issues with the Hitron 24x8 device.

I thought the original 4-channel SMC modem at Rogers had been very poorly received... and SMC has always struck me as a very bargain-basement networking company. So I think it could easily be worse...

Re: Who else makes 24x8 cable modems/gateways

Other than being only 4 channel, the rogers one was actually not bad, I ran it for over a year.

But generally I would agree it being more on the bargain end usually.
