This article reports on plans of Arcwave Inc.'s latest product DOCSIS 2.0. The company has added DOCSIS 2.0 support to its line of ARCXtend gear, which is designed to extend DOCSIS signals wirelessly to small mid-sized commercial cable customers, in the case of Arcwave, those signals are sent via unlicensed wireless bands. The addition of 2.0 will enable Arcwave's platform to boost its potential upstream path to 30 Mhps. a level approaching symmetry with the downstream's theoretical 40 Mhps. Arcwave line extension does not require the official CableLabs Inc. stamp, though the company's cable customers typically conduct RF testing on their own to ensure plant interoperability.
