Keep living in the past or upgrade to DOCSIS 3.1 As we are stepping on board the journey into the future and adding devices to our growing range of digital appliances, there is a major issue holding us back: Current broadband networks are simply not geared to manage the amount of multi gigabit speeds required to effectively run and operate all the machines in our homes.
DOCSIS 3.1 provides new possibilities
Looking to the markets, this demand for more robust bandwidth is a global macro trend that is fueled by the increasing demand for streaming and IP video services. For the operators, getting this right will be crucial to gaining a competitive edge and lowering churn via satisfied customers.
However, this is also important on a much larger scale and will become central to nations’ standard- and quality of living, and competitive performance as societies and the countries failing to put sufficient focus on digital inclusion will surely fall behind.
New standards in the coaxial area, the DOCSIS 3.1, technology, provide possibilities for even faster broadband on existing coaxial cables, in practice 1Gb to every home.
With the introduction of DOCSIS 3.1 it is possible to accelerate faster broadband performance on existing coaxial cables and thereby improving connectivity between people and societies via innovative thinking rooted in stable high-speed broadband performance.
Optimizing performance with DOCSIS 3.1 Products
When upgrading to DOCSIS 3.1 you need to exchange the passive electronic infrastructure to handle higher frequencies, aligning the network to handle a narrower window in the return path and reduce noise due to an increased modulation index. With a DKT solution, you will have a complete product portfolio for the passive distribution network with optimized performance ready for DOCSIS 3.1.
All CATV network operators regularly encounter faults in their network. These faults are caused by defect interconnections between cables and network components. The DKT Signia product series has brass connectors, which do not cold-flow. Also, the connectors are plated with a nickel-tin alloy, this being very resistant to corrosion. High quality cable connectors are also made in brass with nickel-tin plating. As a result, using the Signia products considerably improves the operation of the CATV network.
This “PIO”concept is a solution for changing frequencies on up- and downstream and will prepare the Home for future DOCSIS 3.1 upgrades. This means that roll-out can now be performed swiftly and at a higher speed. This will increase reaction time and customer satisfaction!
