CableLabs Preps DOCSIS’s Next Step – DOCSIS 3.1 or 3.x Focuses Heavily on Upstream
Many cable operators haven’t deployed DOCSIS 3.0 yet (especially on the upstream side), but that obviously hasn’t stopped the development of the next step in cable broadband technology. CableLabs says they’re cooking up a new specification that will succeed Docsis 3.0 with a particular focus on cable’s upstream speeds, the spot its weakest when compared to fiber to the home. The next standard, currently just being caleed DOCSIS 3.1 or 3.x, focuses on more effective modulation schemes. Hard technical specs aren’t available just yet, but you can expect to hear more at next week’s The Cable Show in Boston.
