It is rapidly approaching a year since CableLabs released the specification for DOCSIS 4.0. The ensuing months have seen a massive increase in demand on residential networks as people work from home and children are being taught remotely because of the pandemic. Consequently, operators are looking at ways to increase network capacity to 1.8 GHz sooner than originally anticipated.
Join us on Friday 4th December at 9 PM ET as we celebrate Paul Broadhurst on his induction into the class of 2020 as a Cable TV Pioneer.

Technetix is delighted to announce a partnership that will combine its market leading DBx platform with Vecima’s cutting edge Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) solutions.
Technetix is delighted to announce its latest innovation with the launch of the DBT-1800C. It is no coincidence that this announcement is made in the same week that the industry staple, the GainMaker®, is discontinued. If you are concerned about replacement modules for existing GainMakers® in your network, then Technetix has a solution* and more importantly a next-generation product for future network upgrades.
Technetix is delighted to announce that its Directional Neutral Amplifier (DNA-1800) was recognised and awarded the top honouree score of 5 diamonds among the best in the industry by the 2020 Broadband Technology Report's Diamond Technology Reviews. The stellar third-party judging panel included executives from operators such as Buckeye, Comcast, Charter, Cox, Mediacom, Rogers, Spectrum and Suddenlink, plus well-known industry consultants with vast professional experience.
Technetix is delighted to announce its 10/10G symmetrical XGS-PON solution and 10G EPON solution, including a flexible and pluggable micro 10G PON Optical Line Terminal (OLT), powered by technology from TiBiT Communications.
This addition to Technetix’ fibre portfolio further enhances the world class DBx access platform, which can now offer XGS-PON and 10G EPON in addition to traditional HFC, RFoG and Remote PHY services. It is feasible to build a high RF level RPD node and OLT in one housing using these building blocks, as this modular and flexible solution evolves with the needs of the network operator. There are approaching 1 million DBx units in the field which can now deliver high speed business services via fibre to enterprise, add 5G backhaul into existing networks, as well as serving more traditional PON FTTH network architectures.
16th July, 2020, Albourne, UK - Technetix is proud to announce that Paul Broadhurst, Chief Executive Officer, is to be inducted into the class of 2020 as a Cable TV Pioneer. Broadhurst is one of 22 new members of the organisation, which includes a wide spectrum of industry figures who have made, and continue to make, a contribution to the growth of the industry.

There has always been a clear divide between upstream and downstream data splits, making it possible to upgrade signals in the existing network using by-pass filters and diplex filters in the active components. But this separation has become a limiting factor when upgrading the network; each upgrade requires new filters and additional labour. Technetix has now developed a bi-directional amplifier, without the need for diplex filters. This article will explain how to create more bandwidth and flexibility within the same infrastructure and how this technology will make 1.8GHz ESD installations feasible without amplifier respacing.
Designing and maintaining a high-performance Hybrid Fiber Coax (HFC) network is a bit of a dance. You manage your signal strength along the transmission path to avoid two extremes: (1) too high a transmission level and you distort your signals, and (2) too low a transmission level and your weak signal will get lost in the noise.
One of the key features of the new DOCSIS 4.0 specification is expanding our cable plant spectrum from today's 750MHz/860MHz/1GHz to 1.8GHz. This nearly doubles the spectral capacity for much of today's HFC networks.
