Validating Cable Modems for DOCSIS® 3.1 PNM Deployment

April 18, 2018

The cable industry is always trying to find ways to improve service. When the cable industry made proactive network maintenance (PNM) a part of the DOCSIS® specifications, we showed great commitment to service. CableLabs supports that commitment through its work in specifications, and particularly through its PNM project. This blog entry in our PNM series focuses […]

Enabling the Cable Networks for Mobile Backhaul

February 14, 2018

With 5G and small cell densification on the near horizon, mobile networks need economically viable backhaul solutions. Cable operators are well positioned with fixed networks to bridge that gap, and many operate mobile networks themselves. Could we be on the verge of fixed-mobile network convergence? Things seem to be pointing in that direction, but it […]

Full Duplex DOCSIS® Technology Gets MAC Layer Support

January 30, 2018

Full Duplex DOCSIS® 3.1 (FDX) is an update and extension to DOCSIS 3.1 specifications that builds on the core Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) technology. This additional set of features significantly increases upstream capacity and allows for the same spectrum to be used as downstream or upstream. The set of MAC Layer technology changes to […]

CableLabs Completes Full Duplex DOCSIS Specification

October 11, 2017

“In the United States, more than 90 percent of households are connected to an HFC (hybrid fiber-coaxial) network, and consumers typically have higher download speeds than upload speeds. By enabling Full Duplex DOCSIS, the upstream and downstream traffic can flow at up to 10 Gigabits concurrently, doubling the efficiency of spectrum use.” — Phil McKinney, […]
