ABSTRACT
The article focuses on applications and services requiring 100 megabits per second (Mbps). The DOCSIS 3.0 spec is not yet finalized and pre-specified versions of channel bonding technologies are just beginning to seep into Europe and Asia, where operators are literally begging for it as they match speed for speed with digital subscriber lines (DSL) and fiber providers. If a fiber or DSL service provider comes out with a 50-meg service for $50, cable had better be ready to respond posthaste or suffer the perception that it is somehow behind the technology curve. The cable plant today is already delivering much more than 100 Mbps of capacity-multiple gigabits per second (Gbps).
