CableLabs Winter Conference review and Upstream Full Band Capture
Hosted by Brady Volpe of the Volpe Firm
Guest John Downey of Cisco
Brady and John cover the CableLabs Winter Conference, the press release from Broadcom and upstream expansion to 85 MHz and beyond.
If you have not heard about Broadcom’s press release on upstream analysis capability in the cable modem you will defiantly want to check out this video. Having upstream spectrum full band capture in the cable modem is extremely powerful for identifying RF ingress in the return path.
The guys also discussed some of the challenges and issue in expanding the return path to 85 MHz and beyond to increase upstream DOCSIS speeds, especially in preparation for DOCSIS 3.1.
