Cable technology provider Casa Systems has launched a new DOCSIS 3.1 downstream module for its C100G and C40G CCAP platforms.
The DS8x192 module enables the delivery of up to 10Gbps internet services, comparable with 10G PON networks, according to the company.
Casa Systems’ C100G CCAP solution delivers DOCSIS 3.1 CMTS and an MPEG video Edge-QAM capability in a 13RU platform. The C100G and line cards support the CableLabs DOCSIS 3.1 standard, and are backward compatible with DOCSIS 3.0, according to Casa Systems.
Last year, Casa Systems launched its US16x8 module that supports DOCSIS 3.1 in the upstream direction. With the addition of the new DS8x192 downstream module, the CCAP now supports the entire 1.2GHz spectrum required by DOCSIS 3.1, including both the SC-QAM and OFDM channels, according to the company.
Casa Systems expects the first DOCSIS 3.1 software release on the new DS8x192 module to be ready for customer lab testing late in the third quarter.
“Casa Systems’ new DS8x192 module is a key part of our vision to deliver ultra broadband solutions with gigabit-speeds that allow operators to offer differentiated services and innovative experiences to their customers,” said Jerry Guo, CEO of Casa Systems. “With bandwidth consumption growing exponentially, our customers need the right technology in place to support network demands now and in the future.”
