Nokia Bell Labs demos 10Gbps symmetrical over DOCSIS 3.1

Nokia Bell Labs has achieved what it says is the world’s first 10Gbps symmetrical data speed over a traditional cable access network using DOCSIS 3.1 technology. The company said that the proof of concept of the technology, dubbed XG-CABLE, demonstrates feasibility of Full Duplex DOCSIS 3.1 laid out by CableLabs. The XG-CABLE test used point-to-point […]

CableLabs hails symmetrical multi-Gigabit DOCSIS development

Cable technology standards body CableLabs has begun work on a new technology initiative to support symmetrical multi-Gigabit services. CableLabs used last week’s winter conference in Orlando to unveil plans for a ‘Full Duplex’ DOCSIS technology, tapping techniques currently used by wireless networks to combine upstream and downstream bandwidth rather than having a dedicated upstream channel.
