DOCSIS 3.0 enables 160 Mbps down, 120 up

Everything you can do, I can do better: CableLabs, the research arm of the cable industry, officially issued Data-Over-Cable Service Interface Specifications (DOCSIS) 3.0, which claims downstream data rates of 160 Mbps or higher and upstream data rates of 120 Mbps or higher over coaxial. The spec achieves these speeds by using channel bonding for both the upstream and downstream directions. Of course, DOCSIS 3.0 also integrates support for IPv6. Some vendors got to review the spec under NDA earlier this year and last month CableLabs hosted a week long interoperability event to bring together the vendors to develop DOCSIS 3.0 products. The interop event included ARRIS, BigBand Networks, Broadcom, Casa Systems, Conexant Systems, Filtronic Signal Solutions, NETGEAR, Scientific Atlanta a Cisco company, Cisco Linksys, and Cisco Systems.
