ANDOVER, MA — Vodafone Germany, one of Germany’s largest integrated telecommunications service providers, is deploying Casa Systems’s DOCSIS 3.1 network solution to deliver high-speed broadband services across its entire cable footprint.
Gigabit Investment Plan
Last year, Vodafone launched an aggressive Gigabit Investment Plan comprised of three initiatives to transform its fixed access network infrastructure and enable high-speed broadband services to millions of homes and businesses across Germany. The Giga-Cable initiative will deliver gigabit speeds to Vodafone’s cable footprint through the adoption of DOCSIS 3.1 based solutions. Leveraging Casa Systems’ Converged Cable Access Platform (CCAP) with DOCSIS 3.1 technology, Vodafone will be able to accelerate the upgrade of its cable infrastructure and by the end of 2021, more than 12 million households will enjoy gigabit speeds on Vodafone’s ultra-fast cable network.
DOCSIS 3.1 Standard
Casa System’s fully integrated CCAP platform features CableLabs DOCSIS 3.1 standard, both upstream and downstream, enabling gigabit speeds and higher bandwidth capacity to meet rising demands. Casa’s full support of the DOCSIS 3.1 standard gives service providers the ability to offer download speeds as high as 10 Gbps and upload speeds as high as 1 Gbps. Backward compatibility with DOCSIS 3.0 allows a graceful transition and better utilization of network assets.
“Service providers are transforming their networks to keep pace with consumer’s expectations and deliver high-speed broadband services,” said Jerry Guo, CEO at Casa Systems. “Our DOCSIS 3.1 solutions give providers like Vodafone the ability to enable gigabit speeds today as well as the multi-gigabit services of tomorrow. We will continue to bring new innovations and technology to our customers who rely on us to stay a step ahead.”
