CableLabs says full duplex DOCSIS 3.1 could be here soon

CableLabs recently unveiled new technology that can boost upstream speeds in DOCSIS 3.1 networks without the need for added fiber. The full duplex technology would provide symmetrical speeds of up to 10 Gbps. Now Dan Rice, CableLabs's senior vice president of R&D, says the technology could arrive shortly.

Rice told Multichannel News that full duplex DOCSIS 3.1 is still in the "innovation phase" so there are no specs ready to be published. But he said CableLabs should have a better idea of timing for the technology by mid-2016. Article
