Ralink’s chipsets to be placed in North American CPE thanks to TRaC test program
27 September 2011 – Leading testing and compliance consultancy TRaC Global today announces that Ralink Technology Corporation has successfully completed its DSL testing program, certified by the USA’s two largest broadband service providers.
In the announcement, made today at Broadband World Forum, TRaC confirmed the test program was completed in only three weeks thanks to the 24/7 testing capabilities at TRaC’s flagship DSL test facility in Hull, UK. Ralink’s ADSL and ADSL2+ chipset successfully achieved the TR-067 and TR-100 test program requirements for the multiple DSLAMs deployed in North America.
Anthony Kuo, director of broadband communication business unit at Ralink commented: “Successfully completing the TRaC DSL test program means we can place our first chipsets in AT&T and Verizon modems. It’s a major coup for Ralink and is thanks to the responsiveness and flexibility of the TRaC engineers who completed the program so quickly and efficiently.”
