Owing to CableLabsDOCSIS 3.0 specs, the old phrase "surfing the ‘net" may soon become "hurtling through the ‘net," with Ambit, Arris, Cisco, Motorola and SMC set to provide the propulsion. The 5 companies have received from CableLabs the 1st DOCSIS 3.0 certifications for cable modems capable of delivering downstream data rates of 160Mbps or higher. Also, CableLabs awarded "full" qualification status for CMTS to Casa Systems for a pair of devices, also a 1st. Widespread deployment of such top-end Web speeds may be years away, but stanch wideband proponent Comcast already expects to deliver speeds of up 100Mbps over the next 2 years and is poised to deploy DOCSIS 3.0 tech in 20% of its markets this year.
