NETGEAR has announced that its newest cable modem, the CMD31B, achieved DOCSIS 3.0 certification in CableLabs Certification Wave 71. The CMD31B bonds eight downstream and four upstream channels, exceeding the minimum 4×4 requirement of the DOCSIS 3.0 specification, and results in data rates of up to 320 Mbps downstream and 120 Mbps upstream.

The CMD31B is future-proof with Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) and is also backwards-compatible with DOCSIS 2.0 and 1.1. It supports remote management and provisioning, simple plug-in installation, and post-installation manageability with Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). In addition, it offers a Gigabit Ethernet port.
