in partnership with
sponsored by

Now that DOCSIS 3.1 is almost universally deployed, cable technologists are rolling up their sleeves again to craft yet another next-gen version of DOCSIS. Known as DOCSIS 4.0, this emerging set of specs will incorporate the features of both Full Duplex DOCSIS (FDX) and Extended Spectrum DOCSIS (ESD), giving cable operators two different but complementary options for expanding their bandwidth capacity and delivering symmetrical speeds of 25 Gbps or more to broadband subscribers. In this session, we will delve into the details of DOCSIS 4.0, review the status of the emerging specs, discuss upcoming tests and trials and explore what the new specs will enable.
