The article reports on consideration of an interim step called DOCSIS 2.0b, an integrated telecommunications solution, by cable operators that will bond fewer channels and will offer downstream speeds required at present. It is to be noted that the competitive threats driving the immediate need for downstream channel bonding and 2.0b vary in degree region by region. Peter Percosan, executive director of Texas Instruments Inc., asked TI, another major DOCSIS and PacketCable CPE chipmaker, not to focus on 2.0b because it is not considered a long-term solution. The question arises as to whether 2.0b will play well with earlier 2.0, 1.1 and 1.0 modems or will be able to share the same spectrum.
