What Does DOSCIS 3.1 Mean to the Semiconductor Industry

Download Report

Report Summary:

In response to rapidly increasing data consumption, the CATV/broadband industry has approved DOCSIS 3.1, the latest standard for data transmission over the Hybrid Fiber Coax (HFC) network. Proponents claim this will allow HFC networks to offer data rates up to 10 Gbps, making them competitive with fiber networks running directly to the premises for some time into the future. This development has the potential to invigorate a market opportunity for compound semiconductor devices that has been relatively stagnant the past several years. However, what is the likely outcome? This webinar explored how the DOCSIS 3.1 specification may change the HFC network and how the requirements for semiconductor-based components will change in response. Some market and technology trends and drivers examined during the webinar include:
  • The size of the existing cable infrastructure market, along with the technology share
  • The timing and likely deployment scenarios for DOCSIS 3.1-compatible equipment
  • The roadmap to higher data rates
  • How evolving semiconductor component requirements will enable this evolution
