DOCSIS 3.1 – An overview
DOCSIS 3.1 is the latest Data – Over – Cable Service Interface Specifications.
DOCSIS 3.1 introduces a new physical layer, improved Forward Error Correction (FEC) and other features for high – speed data transmission on cable networks. Scalable 10+ Gbps in the downstream and 1+ Gbps in the upstream, DOCSIS 3.1 supports
services competitive with fibre to the home, but using cable’s HFC platform.
Though cable operators are still in the early deployment and field testing phases with DOCSIS 3.1, a next-gen IP platform for HFC networks, the current crop of D3.1 modems are hybrids in the sense that they can support both DOCSIS 3.1- and DOCSIS 3.0-based traffic.
Other vendors that have notched D3.1 certification – an interoperability achievement required for retail distribution – include Askey, CastleNet, Netgear, Sagemcom, Technicolor and Ubee Interactive.
ASI – Alternative System Integration offers DOCSIS 3.0 modems and DOCSIS 3.1 modems. For more information feel free to contact us and / or visit: http://asi.mk/product/docsis-3-0-modem/ .
