    DOCSIS 3.1 has enabled cable operators to use the incredible capacity of today's HFC plant to nearly its full potential, including delivery of ubiquitous Gigabit services.  However, with great power comes great responsibility (and complexity), and getting the most out of DOCSIS 3.1 requires careful optimization.  DOCSIS 3.1 also enables... ...read more...

            FDX DOCSIS is currently defined as a technology that would be deployed in a deep fiber topology, with nodes serving zero amplifiers. However, N+0 can be a strain to achieve, and as a result, the marketplace asked for a FDX solution that will work with a few amplifiers in cascade.... ...read more...

              With the continued growth of consumer data consumption and increasing speeds offered by cable operators, the need to make more capacity available to subscribers is critical. Cable continues to invent new ways to optimize available spectrum, while recognizing the need for increased spectrum by expanding to 1.8 GHz and beyond.... ...read more...

                The opportunity to tap into new spectrum at 1.2/1.8 GHz and beyond promises to open up significant new speeds for cable operators.  If this spectrum proves usable in cascade, it may enable gigabit symmetrical services at a fraction of the cost and time of other solutions.  This session, featuring technologists... ...read more...

                  FDX amplifiers may offer the possibility of running Full Duplex DOCSIS in cascaded plant, which will ease the need to go to “N+0” and could provide significant cost savings. However, multiple creative approaches are being proposed to enable gigabit symmetrical services over cascaded plant, each with its own benefits and... ...read more...
