PacketCable is a CableLabs-led initiative aimed at developing interoperable interface specifications for delivering advanced, real-time multimedia services over two-way cable plant. The demonstration also will include a preview of Clarent's local access products and softswitch technology, enabling both on-net and off-net Voice over IP (VoIP) telecommunications services. This presentation is part of the exclusive CableNET* exhibit, which is co-sponsored by CableLabs and the California Cable Television Association, and which showcases numerous innovative applications being developed for broadband. Clarent's presence at the show* coupled with the demonstration of its local access products* underscore the company's momentum toward delivering a complete suite of market-ready local access products planned for the first half of 2001.
