HFC Hits 10Gbps At Nokia

Nokia has demonstrated 10Gbps symmetrical data speeds over traditional hybrid fibre-coaxial (HFC) cable networks.

Nokia’s prototype technology, called XG-Cable, is still at the proof-of-concept stage, but should easily integrate into the DOCSIS 3.1 suite of specifications focused on providing cable operators with technology innovations to transform the industry.

DOCSIS is the set of standards governing data access over cable TV networks, and DOCSIS 3.1 was designed to enable capacities of 10Gbps downstream, but only 1Gbps upstream. Nokia has taken this a step further by demonstrating that symmetrical speeds of 10Gbps are possible.

– In Australia, NBN has announced plans to launch DOCSIS 3.1 services in 2017.
