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/ .
