Getting to Gigabits

For the better part of two decades, cable internet providers have focused on building, operating, and improving the physical infrastructure that supports high-speed, consumer internet service. Over two decades and four iterations of a technology platform called DOCSIS, cable internet providers alone have invested over $250 billion in private capital to build speed at a […]

CommScope Talks on Delivery of Gigabit Speeds

Internet speeds are getting faster and faster every year, and many of us are lucky enough to experience it. With gigabit speeds being offered in more communities, there’s no telling what the future holds, except that technology will only continue to keep pace with consumer demands even in the most remote areas. But what goes […]

Who’s Building the Next Gigabit City?

The gigabit trend in the technology space has been hard to ignore as of late, and Comcast, Cox, Brighthouse, Suddenlink, Mediacom, GCI, and Midcontinent, among others, are leading the charge. More and more providers are deploying gigabit services, some even offering 2-gigabit connections, and reaching customers nationwide. But why do we need gigabit services, and […]

We Can Make Gigabit Wi-Fi a Reality

Fact of the day: more Internet traffic is carried over Wi-Fi than any other medium – more than wireline and wireless combined – and it’s increasing every year. So it’s fair to say the future of the Internet is the future of Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi was born in the unlicensed 2.4 GHz band that was once […]

Gigasphere: The Technology Behind Gigabit Broadband

Recently we announced “Gigasphere,” the new consumer-facing name representing DOCSIS 3.1 technology. DOCSIS 3.1 is the technology specifications developed by CableLabs that enables broadband speeds up to 10 gigabits per second, reduces network delays due to congestion, and improves cable modem energy efficiency. For something so impressive, it certainly deserves a better name than DOCSIS […]

Comcast Ups Cable’s Gigabit Parade

Cable’s plan to deliver gigabit broadband speeds to residential customers has been in the formative stages for years as improved technology is making wide-scale deployment more possible. But even before the next generation software platform known as Gigasphere is market ready, several cable operators are pushing ahead with significant gigabit offerings. Last year Brighthouse announced […]

Hearing to Consider the Future of Gigabit Wi-Fi, 5 GHz Spectrum

The U.S. House Committee on Energy and Commerce’s Subcommittee on Communications and Technology will hold a hearing tomorrow called “Challenges and Opportunities in the 5 GHz Spectrum Band.” While a number of things are sure to be discussed, the most important will be how the U.S. can address the current unlicensed spectrum crunch and ensure access to […]
