Motorola and Cox Break World Record in Data Transmission Rates

The CableLabs Winter Conference 2011 is taking place in Atlanta this week and Motorola Mobility and Cox Communications announced today that they have pulled off a world record for DOCSIS return path data transmission on Cox Cable’s Las Vegas System with technology from Motorola. The speed record demonstrates that the return path of cable systems supports a much greater potential capacity than has been previously speculated.

Cox and Motorola have demonstrated that cable systems have untapped bandwidth potential in the return path that will enable cable operators to meet the needs of their customers for years into the future, while at the same time enabling them to offer new, innovative services to their residential and business customers. Customers will now potentially have the option of higher broadband speeds if new applications and customer demand requires that, but more importantly it demonstrates the flexibility of cable networks to support more and higher grades of business service on existing networks.
