The Gateway to the Connected Life: DOCSIS 3.0
Source: Cisco Systems
DOCSIS 3.0 helps operators address the current network speed limitations by enabling them to increase upstream and downstream speeds to 120 Mbps and 160 Mbps, respectively. To achieve these ultra-high speeds and help cable operators deliver more content over their existing networks, DOCSIS 3.0-compliant channel-bonding technology from Cisco uses multiple channels to deliver more packets simultaneously, providing high-speed data rates several times faster than existing DOCSIS 2.0 equipment. The M-CMTS standard complements the DOCSIS 3.0 standard by providing a means by which a CMTS could expand its downstream capacity by using Universal EQAM modulators at a fraction of today's downstream cost.
