DOCSIS Turns Ten

docsis-birthday-tenth-anniversaryMultichannel News notes this morning that we’re closing in on the 10th anniversary of the DOCSIS standard. That doesn’t sound terribly exciting, but it’s worth a moment of reflection. We have DOCSIS to thank for the way we access cable Internet today. The standard makes cable equipment (including modems) interoperable, and the continued development of the standard is bringing to market 50-Mbps services and higher.

There are questions about where DOCSIS will go from here. Will there be a DOCSIS 4.0? Will DOCSIS lose importance in a cable rush to fiber? For now, however, DOCSIS is the foundation for all cable data delivery, and DOCSIS  3.0 is just hitting its stride.

A few Motorola DOCSIS stats:

  • Motorola DOCSIS modems are deployed by more cable operators  than any other DOCSIS modems around the globe
  • Motorola was the first to deploy DOCSIS 3.0 equipment in cable systems
  • Motorola is one of a select few vendors to have CPE (modems and eMTAs) DOCSIS 3.0 certified/qualified by CableLabs
