What's Coming with DOCSIS 3.1 and What You Need to Know Today

So now 3.1...

Seven years down the road from DOCSIS 3.0 the increasing subscriber demand for bandwidth intensive content and the competition from FTTH providers like Google are raising the bar for cable technology developers to provide operators with new weapons for staying ahead and profitable.

DOCSIS 3.1 is focused on delivering several very specific benefits to cable operators. First and most notably, it enables greater capacity and speed, with support for up to 50 percent more data throughput over the same spectrum already on existing HFC networks. Cable providers will be able to deliver up to 10 Gbit/s speeds in the downstream and 1 to 2 Gbit/s in the upstream. That’s a vast improvement while preserving their investments in the HFC plant. But there are some important things that you need to be aware of so you're prepared for what's to come in the future.

This educational webinar covers what's coming with DOCSIS 3.1 and how it will impact your operation. The webinar, “DOCSIS 3.1 - What's coming, and what you should be thinking about today", focuses on what operators need to know now including migration strategies and purchasing decisions, from buying a new CMTS to the CPE you order. Scott will also talk about how channel space will be changing and RF considerations to start thinking about.
