So, how will this affect your provisioning software? It’s not quite obvious yet, but we’ll certainly see a number of new TLVs. However, don’t be alarmed – we have always worked closely with CableLabs and device manufacturers to get their latest CPEs and firmware into our labs for hands-on testing. We’ll also look at acquiring new CMTS blades and platforms that support DOCSIS 3.1. If you already have a specific vendor in mind, let us know so that we can work with them to field test the new technology.
We’d also like to hear from you about your thoughts on DOCSIS 3.1. What do you plan on doing with the new technology? What do you think it will do for you in your markets? In the meantime, I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to see what CableLabs does for DOCSIS 3.1 and how CMTS vendors embrace this new technology.
