Below is the introduction to our latest whitepaper on DOCSIS and how you can minimize expenses by considering G.fast instead of DOCSIS 3.1.
The network speed and capacity that your customers are starting to demand for video, voice and data services are more available and easier for you to deliver thanks to DOCSIS 3.1. However, it might be a difficult choice for operators in your shoes. Reaching gigabit speeds on existing cable connections, by deploying DOCSIS 3.1, is helping cable providers across the nation maintain and grow their subscriber base. Early DOCIS 3.1 trials in Atlanta, Chicago and Nashville were extremely successful, and now DOCSIS 3.1 is becoming more widely adopted and deployed across North America.
However, there’s also a new player emerging on the scene that’s picking up attention and investment quickly: G.fast. One of the biggest pieces of news that got us thinking about this as a smart move for you is its growing support, such as Ovum saying it’ll reach 29 million subscribers by 2021 and plenty of opportunity for interoperability between chipsets.
It’s time for you to see the latest innovation in DOCSIS technology and what your business might be able to choose instead. We think that G.fast, and the interoperability you can push, are the best path for many networks to achieve new wins and faster, affordable service delivery.
