CableLabs, the research and development lab for the cable industry, has announced that five cable modem vendors have achieved the first DOCSIS 3.1 certifications. Newly certified products are from from Askey, Castlenet, Netgear, Technicolor and Ubee Interactive.
DOCSIS 3.1 technology is designed to meet the demand for higher speeds cost effectively by improving network efficiency and scalability while operating on existing cable operator networks, maintaining backward compatibility with existing DOCSIS deployments.
DOCSIS 3.1 technology also reduces network latency, and so improves responsiveness for sophisticated applications such as gaming and rich web experiences. This also represents the first set of DOCSIS specifications with worldwide applicability, a key element to delivering rapid scale and cost-effective products.
Certification verifies compliance to the specifications, interoperability among products. Among the certified devices are Askey's "TCG310," Castlenet's Optimum 601, Netgear's CM1000, Technicolor's TC4400-XM6, and Ubee's DVMA20.
