Cablevision Systems has become the first North American MSO to hit the magic 100 Megabits per second (Mbps) rate for high-speed data. Cablevision announced Mon. that it has completed a successful trial and targeted deployment of a new 100 Mbps service in Oyster Bay on New York's Long Island. Using equipment from Narad Networks, Cablevision said it's delivering "a committed information rate of 50 Mbps" symmetrical services, out of the available 100 Mbps, to Oyster Bay users. The service will be offered to both residential and business customers. No pricing information was disclosed. Narad said its broadband access network provides up to 100 Mbps of dedicated symmetric Ethernet on each of the four coaxial cable trunks in an HFC node. The Cablevision installation uses Narad's coax-based outdoor Ethernet switches, which make use of the spectrum above 860 MHz to create new, QoS-managed bandwidth.
