CommScope and Comcast Achieve Symmetrical 4 Gbps Speeds in Lab Test Using DOCSIS 4.0 FDX Amplifiers
Comcast reaches milestone using CommScope STARLINE-Series FDX amplifiers
The achievement highlights a multi-year FDX amplifier development effort between the two companies that has also resulted in the development of CommScope’s DOCSIS 4.0 OM6000® node with RD1710-X6 FDX Remote PHY Device (RPD). These two solutions will provide a cost-effective, module-only upgrade path to DOCSIS 4.0 FDX in an open-standards environment. In the case of Comcast, they will serve as direct upgrades to the installed base of CommScope STARLINE®-series MB amplifiers and OM6000 nodes already deployed in the field—enabling Comcast to accelerate its deployment of FDX at scale with an eye toward the 10G future.
For operators, this will boost their network capacity and offer multi-Gigabit data rates in both downstream and upstream – translating to a better user experience for their customers.
“DOCSIS 4.0 is ushering in a new era of speed and reliability for consumers and businesses. As we begin to introduce it to our customers, we’re continuing to innovate and push the limits of what HFC networks across the globe can achieve,” said
“CommScope has an incredible legacy of pioneering leadership with the DOCSIS architecture, and this milestone DOCSIS 4.0 FDX lab test with Comcast is further proof that we’re on the leading edge of HFC network technology,” stated
The extensive deployed base of
Comcast and CommScope’s DOCSIS 4.0 FDX developments will be on display at the SCTE® CableTec Expo® in each company’s respective booth (
