10G - From Access Network to Around the Home

In this interview from the 2023 Cable Next Gen conference, CommScope’s Charles Cheevers talks about how the evolution of DOCSIS is setting the stage for high-performance, reliable broadband that can deliver future 10-gigabit services to every corner of the home. The key to this is aligning DOCSIS 4.0 with Wi-Fi 7, whether that be through a traditional all-in-one gateway device or a two-box solution. New Wi-Fi 7 capabilities will revolutionize the future of home networking by allowing, for the first time, deterministic connectivity that brings an even better, low-latency experience to every application and service running on the network.

How DOCSIS 4 CPE will benefit DOCSIS 3.1

DOCSIS 4 modems and gateways will be able to operate on today’s DOCSIS 3.1 networks, what we are calling DOCSIS 3.1e, increasing the speeds available on a 3.1 network. DOCSIS3.1e will give service providers more flexibility; providing a stepping-stone to DOCSIS 4 or a service uplift where no DOCSIS 4 upgrades are planned.
