Cox Communications CTO Kevin Hart has outlined major changes to his MSO's network, which includes plans to extend fiber to a node-plus-zero configuration and deploy DOCSIS 3.1.
BOSTON — It's feasible for cable operators to still be running DOCSIS 3.1-powered networks over copper cables as far out as 2040, according to Tom Cloonan, CTO of Arris's network and cloud business.
While one of pay-TV's biggest vendors has struggled amid a wave of consolidation, Arris CEO Bob Stanzione told investors at the Jefferies Technology Conference that his company should profit handsomely in the coming years as demands on cable network infrastructure increase.
Through a partnership with Internet measurement and solutions provider Cedexis, FierceTelecom has once again stacked up U.S. carriers including AT&T, Verizon and Consolidated Communications, comparing them across such benchmarks as wireline network latency, throughput and availability.
Cable One plans to spend $250,000 to deploy fiber-to-the-home broadband services in new residential development in Pascagoula, Miss. Shell Landing golf/resort area.
A relic of the go-go '90s, dark fiber is once again en vogue, driven by emerging services such as small cell backhaul, data center connectivity and the FCC's E-Rate program.
Arris said it's addressing a vulnerability in its SurfBoard 6141 DOCSIS 3.0 modems with a firmware update.
Mid-sized cable companies continue making sizable investments to expand the capabilities of their networks and stave off competition from fiber, and Suddenlink is no exception.
Cisco, the No. 2 cable network vendor, has announced a major restructuring to its engineering unit under CEO Chuck Robbins.
Arris said that Altice NV has deployed its DOCSIS 3.1-enabling E6000 converged cable access platform (CCAP) within its SFR unit in France.
