LAS VEGAS -- Broadcom Corporation (Nasdaq: BRCM), a global innovation leader in semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications, today announced that its fourth generation DOCSIS 3.0 system-on-a-chip (SoC) solutions have achieved 1Gbps downstream speeds by bonding up to 24x8 DOCSIS channels. Broadcom’s new technology achieves triple the downstream bandwidth and double the upstream bandwidth from previous generations. When paired with Broadcom’s 5G WiFi devices (based on the IEEE 802.11ac standard), operators achieve gigabit speeds into and around the home, enabling the fastest whole-home solution on the market. Learn how Broadcom innovation is enabling the Connected Life at home, at work, and on-the-go at Broadcom@CES. Broadcom’s new BCM3384 DOCSIS/Euro-DOCSIS 3.0 cable gateway SoC combines Broadcom’s Full-Band Capture (FBC) digital tuning technology with remote diagnostics, dual-band concurrent Wi-Fi, a custom, dedicated applications processor, and integrated DECT 6.0 CAT-iq 2.0, driving the proliferation of applications and advanced data, voice, and video services throughout the home. Enabling a simple migration path to 16x4, Broadcom’s new BCM33843 is pin compatible with, and leverages the same software and system design as Broadcom’s widely deployed BCM3383 DOCSIS 3.0 cable gateway SoC. This enables operators to leverage existing designs to quickly deploy additional channels and more bandwidth. Broadcom Corp.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
