CommScope’s DOCSIS leadership and end-to-end solution portfolio will be leveraged in the industry’s first DOCSIS 4.0 (D4.0) initiative in Europe. The company will deploy a new custom node and Remote MACPHY Device (RMD) platform, specifically for Liberty Global.
The RMD Node platform for D4.0 will simplify Liberty Global’s hybrid fiber-coaxial (HFC) network transformation to deliver multi-gigabit services, providing its subscribers with seamless access to new high-bandwidth and low-latency services while enabling 10G capabilities on the HFC network cost-effectively.
“We are excited to partner with Liberty Global once again as we demonstrate our worldwide leadership in DOCSIS,” said Guy Sucharczuk, SVP and President of Access Network Solutions at CommScope. “Our long-standing partnership with Liberty Global uniquely positions us to deliver end-to-end D4.0 solutions specific to its HFC network.”
The groundbreaking D4.0 project is an important step forward in the 10G vision for the future and showcases the global transformation of HFC into tomorrow’s 10G networks.
Colin Buechner, Managing Director and Chief Network Officer of Liberty Global remarked, “We selected CommScope to extend the capabilities of our HFC network into the next decade, because of their proven leadership and expertise in DOCSIS and next-generation networks. Together, we are laying the path to tomorrow’s multi-gigabit services and providing our subscribers across Europe with the world’s most advanced and reliable services.”
