ITU Approves of DOCSIS 3.0

Multichannel News picked up a nice little tidbit about the progress of DOCSIS 3.0 internationally. Apparently last month the International Telecommunications Union issued approvals related to the DOCSIS 3.0 standard at a meeting in Singapore. This means the CableLabs standard is one step closer to international deployment.

In fact, Singapore is home to Starhub, one of the first (if not the first) operators already using pre-standardized DOCSIS 3.0 equipment. Whose equipment, you ask? Why Motorola’s! And Vyyo’s too. Starhub is offering speeds of up to 100 Mbps with DOCSIS 3.0 channel bonding. Interestingly, I learned just yesterday that channel bonding alone doesn’t increase overall average bandwidth, but does increase the peak bandwidth available for transmission to a single cable modem.
