4:30 PM—CableLabs recently posted the results of Docsis Certification Wave 67, and there’s not exactly much new to write home about. That’s because many of latest Docsis 3.0 approvals were for re-certifications of cable modems and embedded multimedia terminal adapters (E-MTAs). However, the results did reveal a new wideband product from Ubee Interactive (formerly Ambit)—the DDW3600. Per usual, the CableLabs posting offers skimpy details about these certified products, but Ubee VP of business development Barry Hardek tells me via email that it’s a Docsis 3.0 wireless gateway that supports four bonded channels in each direction (the bare minimum required by the specs), plus built-in 802.11n.

Also important: The product is based on Texas Instruments Inc. (NYSE: TXN) silicon. Ubee has also won certification for a standalone modem based on the TI platform, along with two that use a Broadcom Corp. (Nasdaq: BRCM) chipset that can bond up to eight downstream channels.
