Communications technology specialist CommScope has confirmed that more than one million Vodafone Germany subscribers are using CommScope’s DOCSIS 3.1 TouchstoneTG3442 Gateway in their homes, enabling download speeds of up to 1Gbit/s.
These customers have opted for next generation broadband technology, DOCSIS 3.1, enabling them to take advantage of emerging technologies such as cloud gaming, virtual reality entertainment and 4K video streaming services across the home.
To enable such speeds and smart capacity management, Vodafone Germany is using CommScope’s DOCSIS 3.1 system, supported by its E6000 converged cable access platform (CCAP). This means Vodafone Germany can deliver the high speeds its customers require, with intelligent software-driven orchestration to manage capacity and connectivity, as well as providing best-in-class analytics on network performance.
“Today, more than ever, people expect their connectivity to be there no matter if they are working from home, the kids are playing games or if they are finishing their eLearning assignments,” said Phil Sorsky, senior vice president of Service Providers for EMEA, CommScope. “Vodafone Germany is laying the framework for a new connected world as we see how crucial the Internet is in keeping our society functioning in the face of rapid and unpredictable change.”
