Cisco System has been selected by Asianet to deploy DOCSIS 3.0, a next-generation cable broadband network which is a key component of the Cisco IP NGN architecture.
As stated in a CISCO release, the technology increases upstream and downstream speeds to Asianet broadband customers by offering speeds of up to 300 Mbps per subscriber.
DOCSIS 3.0 will help Asianet to achieve ultra-high speeds and will help enable the multi-service operator (MSO) to deliver more content over existing networks. The deployment of DOCSIS 3.0 will also allow Asianet to offer broadband services with bandwidth far superior to that of mobile Internet service providers.
About DOCSIS 3.0
- DOCSIS 3.0 is a cable standard developed by CableLabs that enables high-bandwidth access networks.
- Provides operators with the ability to increase downstream capacity to the existing customer base of DOCSIS 1.x/2.0 subscribers at a fraction of the cost of a traditional downstream channel.
- Allows operators to target the insertion of DOCSIS 3.0 bonded service.
- Greatly minimizes operator’s DOCSIS 3.0 time to market and deployment risk.
