Aug. 28, 2001--Rainmaker Technologies, Inc. announces technology capable of delivering 10Gbps of digital capacity to the side of the home over existing cable networks.

Rainmaker Technologies, Inc. announces technology capable of delivering 10Gbps of digital capacity to the side of the home over existing cable networks. The company is a fabless developer and marketer of silicon solutions that enable cable operators to deliver carrier-class fiber speeds over existing last mile broadband infrastructure.

"Our digital modem technology allows the cable operator to deliver 10 gigabits per second over the last few thousand yards of coaxial cable to the home. Using our technology, the cable operator can incrementally extend their current digital capacity without forklift upgrades and without modifying the existing plant," says Mark Laubach, CTO. "The Hybrid Fiber-Coaxial cable plant has tremendous advantages for scaling and extending capacity. We provide technology that mines fiber-speed data capacity from existing in-band RF cable spectrum in a manner that completely coexists with current services. The cable operator can grow to 10Gbps to the side of the home when and where needed and in a manner that is completely consistent with current practices."
