Ultra Fast Motorola DOCSIS 3.1 Cable Modem Achieves CableLabs Certification

MTRLC LLC Division of Zoom Telephonics Achieves Important Cable Modem Milestone

BOSTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / May 16, 2017 / The MTRLC LLC division of Zoom Telephonics, Inc. ("Zoom") (OTCQB: ZMTP), a leading producer of cable modems and other communication products, today announced CableLabs certification for its Motorola Model MB8600 DOCSIS 3.1 cable modem. Capable of achieving DOCSIS 3.1 data speeds of well over 1 Gigabit per second, this cable modem also has 32 x 8 DOCSIS 3.0 capability; so it can achieve the highest data speeds provided by DOCSIS 3.0 services. Advanced Model MB8600 features include four Gigabit Ethernet ports, support for bonded Ethernet ports, Broadcom full-band capture digital tuning, active queue management (AQM) to significantly reduce Internet latency, and industry-leading resistance to lightning and power surges.

DOCSIS 3.1 is the latest standard for cable modems, and Comcast Xfinity® has been aggressively rolling out DOCSIS 3.1 service. Model MB8600 supports Xfinity's highest data speeds. Information about Xfinity's DOCSIS 3.1 rollout is available at www.xfinity.com/gig.

"The Motorola MB8600 is the right choice for customers who want ultra fast Internet now and in the future," said Frank Manning, President and CEO of Zoom Telephonics. "DOCSIS 3.1 with fallback to 32x8 DOCIS 3.0 is blazing fast, and we've designed this product with bonded Ethernet so that it's not limited by the speed of its Gigabit Ethernet ports. The MB8600's Active Queue Management is also exciting, as it significantly reduces Internet latency, much better than popular 32x8 DOCSIS 3.0-only cable modems. AQM results in faster page loads for all Web traffic, and greatly enhances interactive applications like online gaming and video conferencing. The price is right too at $159.99, and in late May this product will be on the shelves at a leading storefront retailer and available online."
