Altice Trials DOCSIS 3.1 With Cisco CCAP

COLOGNE -- Following the successful launch of its Zive subscription video on-demand service, Altice has begun a field trial for its DOCSIS 3.1 Gigabit broadband service with SFR in France, using the Cisco® cBR-8 converged broadband router.

In less than one year, Altice has deployed the cBR-8 across its markets in France and is rapidly progressing with deployment of the cBR-8 across its U.S. entities and all Altice International companies.

Altice can now help its operators deliver faster Internet speeds to support high-definition and 4K video-on-demand services and offer a more immersive entertainment experience for its customers.

In its recent Gigabit broadband service field trial in France using the Cisco cBR-8, Altice hit a record speed of more than 3 gigabits per second (Gbps) per subscriber, as well as proving capabilities for more than 7 Gbps of aggregate bandwidth in the same cable segment.
