Last year we spoke on some transformational topics

Full Duplex DOCSIS® 3.1 Technology
Last year we showed how CableLabs is significantly increasing upload and download speeds for a richer online experience, and learned about the next evolution of DOCSIS technology. Full Duplex DOCSIS 3.1 enables multi-Gbps symmetric services over the HFC network. As new technologies and applications emerge that will enable new experiences for the customers, our networks will be prepared to support speed and latency requirements.


Coherent Optics
CableLabs is bringing robust techniques for significantly improving optical spectrum efficiency to the part of the network that connects cable headends to fiber endpoints. Coherent optical link with 100/200-Gb/s data rate per single wavelength was demonstrated based on PM-QPSK/16QAM modulation formats with simplified DSP and configurations for access implementations. The signal transmits over 80-km single mode fiber with error-free performance after forward error correction.


Wi-Fi Proactive Network Maintenance
Wi-Fi Proactive Network Maintenance is enabling standards-based, enterprise-class remote troubleshooting in the residential Wi-Fi market. The cable industry spends over a billion dollars every year on troubleshooting residential Wi-Fi; primarily due to a lack of visibility into the home. The Wi-Fi PNM project addresses this gap and establishes a common collection framework which can be leveraged by analytics vendors, customer support agents, or any other big data analysis effort.


Dual Channel Wi-Fi
As the number of Wi-Fi devices within the home increases, the demand on home Wi-Fi networks also increases. The result is a poor Wi-Fi experience and additional customer support issues such as excessive application timeouts, network latency, and data dropouts. We showed how Dual-Channel Wi-Fi addresses the problem by delivering data in a better way and greatly reducing customer support needs while improving the Wi-Fi experience on both Dual-Channel Wi-Fi-enabled clients and legacy Wi-Fi clients.



An in-depth look at all aspects of R-PHY including the technology, the implementation of R-PHY and the benefits for operators. Jon Schnoor provided a view of the current state of the project and how CableLabs and Kyrio are playing an essential role in the next generation of cable networks.
