New Technology Will Enable The 10G Future

In order to deliver speeds of 10 gigabits per second with enhanced capacity, reliability, and security, it will require an array of new technologies. Some are already being implemented, and some are still being developed, but all of them will work together to form the 10G platform of the future.


So, how are we going to achieve 10 gigabit speeds?

Deployment of several types of DOCSIS technologies will improve performance of our existing networks, without having to update the infrastructure.

  • play

    Networks will transmit up to 50% more data, enabling improved quality of video conferencing, virtual reality, live gaming, and connected devices.

  • Arrows

    Networks will support symmetrical upload and download speeds, therefore shortening response time to 1 millisecond, and removing lag time, or "latency."


How will the network support all of the data moving across it?

Multiple fiber optic technologies will enable the current cable infrastructure to manage increased internet traffic far into the future.

Coherent Optics enable a single fiber to handle signals moving in both directions, saving energy and cost, while doubling capacity.

How will the 10G networks provide seamless connectivity?

Advancements to Wi-Fi technologies will improve consumer connectivity so they can move freely around cities without experiencing any gap in their connection.

  • Connected home

    All devices in the home will have an optimal connection due to multiple access points working together to create a unified home network.

  • Wifi

    The ability to seamlessly connect to any available Wi-Fi network without having to log in will be made possible by a secure automated process happening in the background.

  • Check

    There will be fewer connection errors due to the enterprise level management of residential networks, detecting issues and resolving them before they become apparent.


How will 10G provide greater protection?

The advanced network management system can identify and organize connected devices in order to isolate security threats and prevent them from damaging the network.


How does 10G help 5G Wireless?

With a high-speed network that covers most of America, wireless operators will use broadband for ‘mobile backhaul’ to transmit a call over distances, with wireless signals only being sent at the two end-points. This will reduce the strain on the mobile network and improve wireless service–10G broadband technology is going to enable the wireless 5G future.
