October 10, 2014 — Gent (Belgium) — Excentis, a leading provider of testing services for access network technology, announces that it certified two dual band Wi-Fi & VoIP Cable Gateways for LTE immunity. Both devices are EuroDOCSIS products manufactured by Technicolor, and they are the industry’s first to get the “Excentis Certified for LTE Immunity” label.

Excentis recently launched an LTE Immunity certification test program. The goal of this program is to help ensure that cable services are not disturbed by electromagnetic fields generated by wireless equipment, currently LTE devices, using the 790-862 MHz sub-band of the digital dividend frequencies. Certification testing is done on EuroDOCSIS cable modems, cable gateways or set-top boxes for a specific interfering electric field (E-field) level between 3 and 10 Volts per meter.

The Technicolor products TC7210 and TC7230 passed all testing with an E-field of 5 V/m. These devices are the first to obtain the "Excentis Certified for LTE Immunity" label.

"The certification is an important step for manufacturers and network operators in making cable devices compatible with the LTE wireless services operating in the same frequency band as the cable services", says Wim De Ketelaere, CTO of Excentis.

More information on the Excentis LTE Immunity Certification program is available on the Excentis website.

More details on certified products are available through the official list of certified products published on the Excentis website.
