CommScope will deliver its RMD Node platform as part of Europe’s first DOCSIS 4.0.
The RMD Node platform for D4.0 will simplify Liberty Global’s hybrid fibre-coaxial (HFC) network move to the delivery of multi-gigabit services. Ultimately, Liberty will be able to offer a 10 Gbps service over its HFC network.
“Our ground-breaking D4.0 project is an important step forward in our 10G vision for the future,” stated Colin Buechner, Managing Director and Chief Network Officer, Liberty Global. “We selected CommScope to extend the capabilities of our HFC network into the next decade, because of their proven leadership and expertise in DOCSIS and next-generation networks. Together, we are laying the path to tomorrow’s multi-gigabit services and providing our subscribers across Europe with the world’s most advanced and reliable services.”
“We are excited to partner with Liberty Global once again as we demonstrate our worldwide leadership in DOCSIS,” added Guy Sucharczuk, SVP and President, Access Network Solutions, CommScope. “Our long-standing partnership with Liberty Global uniquely positions us to deliver end-to-end D4.0 solutions specific to its HFC network.”
