We asked executives in our industry what 10G milestones they expect to see this year. Here’s what they had to say.

Ric Johnsen
SVP, Broadband Networks
CommScope

“The pandemic has created an environment of high demand for bandwidth and exposed significant gaps in the capability and reliability of current networks. Network Infrastructure technology is ushering in an era change to support significant bandwidth expansion and a major reduction in network latency. Adding capacity, speed and improved latency will provide the flexibility to support the next generation of applications.

Curtis Knittle
VP, Wired Technology
CableLabs

“CableLabs hosts interoperability events to ensure components of our specifications are interoperable for operator deployment. For DOCSIS 4.0 and the recently completed Flexible MAC Architecture specifications, we have a regular cadence of interop events planned in 2022. We are also making IP network security improvements based on CableLabs’ Cable Route Engineering for Security and Trust publication. These technologies support key tenets of 10G which will deliver internet speeds 10 times faster than today’s networks.”

Stephanie Mitchko-Beale
EVP & CTO
Charter Communications

“The path to 10G is a continuous journey and we are well on our way in architecting the solutions, developing the technologies, and building out the infrastructure that will deliver a superior experience to our customers. As we recently shared in our earnings call, in 2022, we’ll increase the number of projects to deploy high splits in our service areas, bringing us one step closer to delivering multi-gig, bidirectional services across our network. We also achieved a significant milestone demonstrating greater than 8.5 Gbps downstream and 6 Gbps upstream services in our labs. This really is an exciting time for the industry and for Charter.”

JR Walden
SVP & CTO
Mediacom

“My prediction would be that customers will begin seeing wide-scale deployment of 1gig symmetrical (or better) speeds on DOCSIS/RF networks this year.”
