FCC’s waiver of integrated set-top security ban yields tiny sales for ACE

Adams Cable Equipment (ACE), which received a waiver from the FCC to sell 50,000 refurbished set-top boxes with integrated security, has sold less than 1,100 STBs to wholesale and retail customers to date. ACE obtained the waiver a year ago, averting the FCC’s 2007 integrated set-top security ban after successfully arguing that selling refurbished integrated security boxes would give cable operators an alternative to using one-way Digital Transport Adapters.
