Cisco has firmed up its plans to move into the cable modem market by signing a deal with Sony to create networking products. This follows an earlier deal Cisco made with Intel to work together on the Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification (DOCSIS). Under the terms of the agreement, Sony will make cable modems using a Cisco reference design and Cisco networking software. These products will support DOCSIS. Directed at home users, they will be available through retailers or access providers. The move is seen as further evidence of Cisco's ambition to become a major player in communications, both as a designer and a supplier. Sony has not announced when it plans to release the products.
