The discussion included the different CMTS architectures and advantages of each.  To set the ground work for DOCSIS 3.0, previous versions of the DOCSIS specification were discussed along with business needs that drove the cable industry to adapt more advanced standards.  Topics included capacity planning as well as discussions around future applications that may run over the DOCSIS infrastructure.


On behalf of the Sooner State Chapter of the SCTE, I want to thank you for providing the training on DOCSIS 3.0 this past Wednesday and Thursday. It was very informative and timely. We will post your presentation on our web site for those who could not make the meetings or want to refreash/clarify what was presented.

I know time is short and a valuable commodity these days, but your efforts and sharing of your vast knowledge are greatly appreciated.  

Thank you again,

Dane Huston, President
