CableLabs outlines new spec to increase fibre network capacity

Cable industry technology standards body CableLabs has published its first Point-to-Point Coherent Optics specifications which the cable outfit says will dramatically increase capacity of fibre access networks by and a factor of 10 and will support 100 gigabits of data per wavelength. Coherent Optics technology uses amplitude, phase, and polarization to enable much higher fibre capacity, […]

Cable industry set to benefit from new fibre tech, says CableLabs chief

‘Coherent optics’ – the new technology that enables the transmission of more data through a fibre – will enable the cable industry to delivery massively greater amounts of data at high-speed over its network without the need to lay down additional fibre, according to Phil McKinney, CEO of CableLabs. “Part of the challenge with high-speed […]

Cisco unveils Full Duplex DOCSIS reference design

Cisco has unveiled a reference design for Full Duplex DOCSIS, the latest iteration of the cable broadband technology that is designed to deliver fibre-type speeds over hybrid fibre-coax networks. Cisco says that the technology will enable cable operators to deliver multi-gigabit speeds over their HFC networks, enabling the deployment of new services such as 4K […]
