Docsis is the abbreviation for Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification. This is an international telecommunications standard that enables the delivery of high-bandwidth data over RF in cable television (CATV) systems. Docsis standard has come a long way from its inception to the version 3.1 which is the latest evolution of the standard offering broadband speeds that can compete with fiber networks.
4.0 is already in development phase providing even higher speeds and the possibility of using FDX.
Docsis transmission technology can be used with AIR to achieve the same characteristics as in a cable network. Docsis equipment consists of CMTS (cable modem termination system) as a data transmission platform and cable modems as end-user devices. Globtel Air system acts as a transport layer (physical infrastructure) and connects CMTS with the end user’s cable modem.
Docsis standard version 3.1 is the latest evolution of the standard offering broadband speeds that can compete with fiber networks.
Docsis 3.1 transmission technology combined with AIR results in a state-of-the-art fixed wireless system it can match the performance of fiber networks and state-of-the-art cable networks.
AIR with Docsis 3.1 can be a very competitive solution in areas with high population density and even in well-developed markets demanding high end-user throughputs. It can provide a broadband speed of more than 46 Gbps per base station sector antenna by using 1 GHz of frequency bandwidth.
|AIR Docsis 3.1||Maximum base station downlink throughput at 1000 MHz per sector||Maximum throughput at end-user - 192 MHz|
|4096 QAM modulation||46080 Mbps||2304 Mbps|
Cable operators can easily extend their footprint and seamlessly integrate AIR with Docsis 3.1 in their existing network, OSS/BSS, billing and other systems. All standard Docsis equipment can be used with AIR and can be purchased from a wide variety of vendors.
