For the second time in as many months, Excentis supports an industry DOCSIS® 3.1 interop event with traffic generation.

During these interops – organized by CableLabs®, the cable industry R&D consortium – a multitude of CMTS and cable modem manufacturers work together to detect and debug interoperability issues with regards to the new DOCSIS 3.1 specification.

ByteBlower provides the multi-gigabit data rates made available by this new technology for cable broadband.

With on-site support from Excentis, CMTS and modem vendors are blasting upstream and downstream traffic through their devices to test performance, stability, loss and latency.
