The Hitron CODA-45 available from NCF has been certified by the following cable network vendors for operation on their infrastructure:
- Rogers (Ontario)
- Cogeco (Ontario and Quebec)
Current certified firmware versions: 188.8.131.52.1b3 and 184.108.40.206.2b1 (on the Rogers and Cogeco cable networks)
Cable network operators control what cable modems and firmware versions can be used on their networks. Operators run all cable devices and firmware versions through their own testing process, after which the device and firmware are certified for use on the cable network. After the testing and approval process of a new version of firmware for a cable device, cable network operators may then automatically upgrade all cable modems connected on their network with the latest certified firmware.
NCF does not have access to firmware that it can provide to members.
