The article presents information on the selection of packet bonding technique by CableLabs Inc. over a rival technique for the emerging DOCSIS 3.0 specification and modular-cable modem termination system (M-CMTS) architecture. DOCSIS 3.0 and the M-CMTS projects are somewhat independent but on the facet of channel bonding they work together. Channel bonding is the technique which enable cable operators to offer speed well above 100 Mbps and thus will provide a competitive hindrance to new fibre-to-the-premise technique.
