TECHNOLOGY://Motorola spearheads DOCSIS and WiMAX

StarHub is nearing the launch of a DOCSIS 3.0 trial, as reported before (but perhaps pushed back a little: 06H2 instead of 06Q3).

This is remarkable for two reasons:
  • DOCSIS 3.0 will allow for speeds up to 100 Mbps, i.e. a VDSL2 rival. Or fiber, for that matter. If it works, the DOCSIS developments take a serious leap. Upgrade to 1 Gbps is possible.
  • Another serious playground for Motorola, besides Pakistan for mobile WiMAX (also 06H2).
