The article provides information on Data Over Cable Service Interface Specifications (DOCSIS) 3.0. It will increase bandwidth on the downstream and especially on the highly constrained upstream, which will be critical as it becomes increasingly more common for subscribers to upload video. The speed enhancements are derived largely from channel bonding and will also have provisions for Internet Protocol version 6 and modular cable modem termination system (CMTS) technology.
