CableLabs certifies first round of DOCSIS 3.1 modems

CableLabs says devices from Askey, Castlenet, Netgear, Technicolor and Ubee Interactive are the first five DOCSIS 3.1 cable modems to receive its certification. 

"For months, many people have been asking me: 'When will DOCSIS 3.1 devices get certified?,'" said Matt Schmitt, VP of lab services for CableLabs, writing on the industry consortium's blog.  

"My response has generally been something along the lines of: 'When they successfully demonstrate they're ready based on the test results. The team at CableLabs will do everything we can to facilitate this process, as our goal is to see DOCSIS 3.1 devices in the field as soon as possible."
