Extended Spectrum DOCSIS®: A Pragmatic Approach

What does Extended Spectrum DOCSIS® mean for operators in practice? Download our white paper to find out! 

We have made real measurements in a real condition to answer a simple, yet important question. What kinds of amplifiers are needed in 1.8 GHz networks and what kind of performance are they expected to have?

Although coaxial cables might have close to unlimited potential, we must discuss what is possible today in laboratories as technologies tested at the moment will be available in 2020 for roll-outs. These practical matters are the focus of a white paper “Extended Spectrum DOCSIS®: A Pragmatic Approach“, written by Steve Condra and Arttu Purmonen.  

The paper covers variables that are expected to limit the  Extended Spectrum DOCSIS® in North America, such as:

  • Length of cables and amplifier cascades
  • Existing taps
  • Performance of the state-of-the-art amplifiers equipped with the latest hybrids, and
  • Capabilities of the latest Remote PHY products.

In addition, we show two methods that help coping with high total composite power and give examples of how they could be exploited. The methods are based on technologies that are commercially available in 2020.
