Liberty Global Uses CommScope for DOCSIS 4.0 Reader | Infrastructure | New

Laying the groundwork for its strategy to deploy 10 Gbps wired infrastructure across its network of connectivity providers, Liberty Global selected CommScope to develop and deploy a Remote MACPHY Device (RMD) node platform based on the new DOCSIS 4.0 standard (D4.0).
The project marks the industry’s first D4.0 initiative in Europe and will use CommScope’s portfolio of DOCSIS solutions to deliver a new custom node and enterprise-specific RMD platform. The RMD Node platform for D4.0 will be used to simplify the transformation of Liberty Global’s hybrid fiber-coaxial (HFC) network to deliver multi-gigabit services, giving its subscribers access to new broadband services bandwidth and low latency and enabling Liberty Global to ultimately achieve 10G capabilities over the HFC network in a cost effective manner.

“Our groundbreaking D4.0 project is a significant step forward in our 10G vision for the future,” said Colin Buechner, Managing Director and Chief Network Officer of Liberty Global. “We chose CommScope to expand our HFC network capabilities over the next decade because of their proven leadership and expertise in DOCSIS and next-generation networks. Together, we are paving the way for the multi-gigabit services of tomorrow and providing our subscribers across Europe with the most advanced and reliable services in the world.

“We are delighted to partner with Liberty Global again as we demonstrate our global leadership in DOCSIS,” added Guy Sucharczuk, SVP and President, Access Network Solutions, CommScope. “Our long-standing partnership with Liberty Global uniquely positions us to provide end-to-end D4.0 solutions specific to its HFC network. This is a showcase for the global transformation of HFC into the 10G networks of tomorrow, and we are excited to deploy this technology in Europe and beyond.
