ARRIS has completed an upgrade of Madison Communications’ entire HFC system to DOCSIS 3.0 technology. Madison is a provider of broadband Internet, telephone and video entertainment services throughout its Central Illinois cable system, serving portions of Madison and Macoupin counties.

Madison Communications launched high-speed data service in 2001 with early DOCSIS 1.0 technology, then upgraded to DOCSIS 2.0 in 2007 to meet continued growth and speed expectations. In 2011, the Madison team made the decision to upgrade to a DOCSIS 3.0 C4 CMTS and enlisted the help of ARRIS Professional Services to provide program management and solutions implementation, training, technical support and end-to-end integration for CATV systems.
