Gaining more capacity out of the existing fibers can eliminate the need to lay more fiber. The specifications allow multiple system operators to best leverage their existing fiber infrastructure to withstand the exponential growth in capacity demands and services for residential and business subscribers while enabling new services in the most cost-efficient way.
This announcement closely follows the launch of the CableLabs’ Full Duplex DOCSIS specification in 2017, reflecting the company’s ongoing commitment to the broadband consumer community, cable and fiber providers and other key industry stakeholders.
The Point to Point Coherent Optics specification effort was introduced by CableLabs last year and the completed specifications can be found on the CableLabs website. For more information, please reference this press release. If you are interested in speaking with a CableLabs’ expert on the announcement, let me know and I am happy to coordinate.
