The Access Network is being rapidly upgraded to Gfast loops with deeper fiber into existing cabinets. To maximize speed, engineers need to ensure the Gfast copper loop is pristine or the expected bandwidth will fall short of goal and customer complaints will follow. Tools to Accelerate Gfast Copper Test: OneCheck Copper Diagnostics is a full suite […]

Orthogonal frequency domain multiplexing (OFDM) and the profiles it creates can boost the speed and throughput of DOCSIS 3.1 to levels that rival fiber. But what building blocks make up OFDM and why are they important? One of the interesting aspects of DOCSIS 3.1 is its backwards compatibility with DOCSIS 3.0. The good news is […]

Cable providers have spent years trying to solve a dilemma: “Do we spend money to completely upgrade the plant or do we make due with incremental improvements to our existing plant?” Fiber is able to transport more data at higher speeds than cable, but completely replacing a cable network with fiber is cost prohibitive. Until […]
