Cisco and Comcast announces 10 gigabit down cable internet.





Today, at The Internet & Television Expo, Cisco announced they are working in partnership with major cable companies, like Comcast, to bring 10 gigabit internet to their customers.
Offering broadband operators full DOCSIS 3.1 capabilities, and 10 times the speed and capacity of any existing product, the cBR-8 cost effectively scales from today’s 1 Gbps speed to 10 Gbps by eliminating the need for multiple system rewiring.
The cBR-8 integrates the previously stand-alone functions required in a cable hub, delivering the industry’s first “hub-in-a-box” solution, enabling cable operators to achieve savings as they offer faster service to their customers.
This improved cable internet would be an enormous step forward for cord cutters, as it will deliver the speed and broad band to make even 4K video easy to stream.
Some notable quotes from the announcement at INTX 2015:
·         Kevin McElearney, senior vice president, Comcast Cable
“Comcast Xfinity continues to deliver the fastest Internet speeds available to give consumers an industry-leading experience at home. Platforms like Cisco’s cBR-8 will provide next-generation speed and capacity, enabling converged cable access architecture for multi-Gigabit services, increased scalability and improved operational efficiency to keep up with the unprecedented growth of broadband and IP video traffic.”
·         Max Blumberg, chief technology officer, Altice Group
“This step is part of our long-term investment strategy. We are building the next generation of fixed mobile converged networks. With a combination of Cisco’s Evolved CCAP, DOCSIS 3.1 and migration to NFV/SDN, Altice will continue providing the best customer experience, based on the highest bandwidth and cutting edge technology.”
·         Brett Wingo, vice president and general manager, Service Provider Infrastructure Group, Cisco
“After years of working directly with major cable operators around the globe to develop this leapfrog CCAP technology, the inherent business value the cBR-8 delivers truly sets this product apart.  Implementing cBR-8 into the network will allow our customers to scale to full DOCSIS 3.1 and converged video services, reducing both capex and opex costs, while keeping the cable network competitive and cost-effective for the next decade.”
