THEALE, 12 March, 2001-Internet access and computer
graphics
board vendor ELSA has been granted Euro DOCSIS certification for its ELSA
MicroLink Cable modems

Certification by the ECB (Euro DOCSIS Certification Board)
and compliance with European DOCSIS (Data Over Cable Interface
Specification) standards guarantees complete compatibility with the
technology of the leading European cable providers.

Already approved by the US standards body, CableLabs since

broadband access solutions over cable TV networks. Dataquest forecasts
that
approx. 1.3 million cable modems will be shipped in Europe this year, and
