It’s been designed to support 10G DOCSIS3.1 over cable as well as 10G PON over fiber. It can save about 70% space in headend and improve the preference up to 30% over coax.
Combined with DOCSIS 3.1, D-CCAP and digitised fibre, Huawei says it’s possible to achieve a 10 Gbps rate over coaxial cable and fibre. the company has demonstrated 10G DOCSIS 3.1 during Angacom.
“The era of Gigaband access is coming,” said Jeff Wang, president of Huawei Access Network Product Line. “Huawei has invested heavily in innovations in fiber, coaxial cable, copper wire, and Wi-Fi technologies. Our 10 Gbit/s HFC access platform will help MSOs to quickly roll out Gigabit networks with lower TCO and high O&M efficiency. With this platform, MSOs can migrate to IP videos in the future.”
Huawei has been responsible for a series of technology breakthroughs including the industry first DOCSIS 3.1 prototype launched in SCTE 2013, the first DOCSIS 3.1 D-CCAP solution launched in ANGA COM 2014, the first DOCSIS 3.1 field test with TDC in June 2015, and the first 10Gbit/s DOCSIS 3.1 service demo in ANGACOM 2016.
