The NBN Co's efforts to make it possible to get gigabit speeds on HFC will help alleviate the scaling problem that exists due to the pricing model for CVC, according to the head of a small ISP.
Enabling DOCSIS 3.1 on the HFC network would be a good thing in the short term, but the longer game will always be a full-fibre given its longevity, tech experts have told iTWire.
DOCSIS 3.1 is billed as "cutting edge cable broadband technology" that will "double downstream capacity on NBN Co Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC) network" and it is finally being enabled.
The Australian telecommunications market is predicted to change dramatically over the next 10 years with the transformation of the telecom industry and a range of economic sectors dependent on telecom infrastructure, according to a newly published analyst report.
NBN Co says it is close to delivering gigabit speeds to homes and businesses in six cities, including Sydney and Melbourne, following trials of new technology on its hybrid fibre coaxial (HFC) network.
Using current network infrastructure, US cable operator Comcast is trialling DOCSIS 3.1 tech to deliver speeds "up to 1 Gigabit per second" over lines already reaching millions of homes.
iTWire was at NBN Co’s full year results 2016 presentation, and as per usual, we captured the presentation in full for you on video – it's embedded below.
As Australia’s long wait for DOCSIS 3.1 continues, a US cable operator will have four of its five largest cities launching DOCSIS 3.1 tech and speeds by the end of 2016.
Technicolor - yes, that Technicolor from the movies - has it CTO making the case that ‘next generation broadband’ should be ‘based on open innovation and industry-wide collaboration.’
US cable and Internet provider Comcast has developed its own DOCSIS 3.1 modem which when combined with a DOCSIS 3.1 network can deliver 1Gbps+ speeds.
NBN Co has announced plans to roll out DOCSIS 3.1 technology in 2017, which will allow it to offer gigabit data rates over the HFC network.
NBN Co’s results show a doubling of premises connected, higher ARPU, 3x revenue, higher capex costs, but larger EBIT and EBITDA losses.
