Q: What are the key differences between AIR Gigaray using DOCSIS 3.0 or DOCSIS 3.1?
A: The key differences are that DOCSIS 3.1 supports higher modulations and as such higher throughput both to the end user as well as cumulative throughput of the sector antenna. Another important factor is that D3.1 supports adaptive modulation and is as such significantly more resistant to rain fade effects than DOCSIS 3.0
Q: Can any standard DOCSIS equipment on the CMTS and the Modem side be used?
A: Yes, any CableLabs certified equipment is supported with the AIR Gigaray product while AIR Gigaray Integra is based on Harmonic CableOS on the CMTS side but can still utilize any CableLabs certified cable modem on the customers side.
