Casa Systems announced its new DOCSIS 3.1 compliant module for its C100G and C40G Converged Cable Access Platforms (CCAP). Called the DS8x192, the new module is intended to enable cable operators to support downstream speeds up to 10 Gbps.

The C100G combines a DOCSIS 3.1 CMTS and an MPEG video edge QAM in a 13-RU platform. The C100G and line cards support DOCSIS 3.1 and are backward compatible with DOCSIS 3.0. The company expects the first DOCSIS 3.1 software release on the DS8x192 to be ready for customer lab testing in late Q3.

Last year, Casa Systems launched its US16x8 module that supports DOCSIS 3.1 in the upstream direction. With the addition of the new DS8x192 downstream module, Casa Systems' CCAP now supports the entire 1.2 GHz spectrum required by DOCSIS 3.1, including both the SC-QAM and OFDM channels.
