Vecima Launches the HyperQAM Universal Edge QAM

    VICTORIA, June 12 /CNW/ - Vecima Networks Inc. (TSX: VCM), leading Last
Mile Solution(R) provider for cable broadband networks, announces today the
launch of HyperQAM(TM), its next-generation Universal Edge QAM. The Vecima
HyperQAM is ideally suited for deployments of Switched Digital Video, M-CMTS
and DOCSIS 3.0. The HyperQAM is able to simultaneously support high speed
data, broadcast video and VOD services in the same chassis.
    The HyperQAM features exceptional redundancy and modularity, is fully
software upgradeable and is a reliable solution for any operator planning
value-added video or data services. With 128 fully DRFI compliant QAM outputs
in 2 rack units, the highly compact design allows operators to do more with
less. The scaleable platform allows outputs to be added in increments of 1, 2,
4, 6 or 8, permitting a pay-as-you-grow philosophy - affordable even at lower
    "The HyperQAM presents a compelling solution to service providers who
demand a cost effective, robust, and scaleable Edge QAM solution that will
meet their networks' requirements for carrier class reliability and rich
feature sets for DOCSIS 3.0 M-CMTS and switched digital video deployments,"
said Sumit Kumar, Vice President of Corporate Strategy of Vecima. "Vecima has
harnessed our longstanding position as a leading provider of DOCSIS QAMs,
upconverters and IP Edge devices coupled with our RF expertise to deliver a
best in class Edge QAM solution."
    "Cable operators are facing a sea change in that they are evolving from
video providers to experience providers in a convergent environment. The
HyperQAM simplifies and facilitates this transition by providing a universal,
powerful, and future-proof platform addressing all QAM needs," said Mr. Kumar.
    Vecima will debut the HyperQAM at the SCTE CableTec Expo (June 20-22,
2007, Booth No. 549).
