CommScope selected by Liberty Global as D4.0 technology partner

July 20, 2022
CommScope will deliver its RMD Node platform for Europe’s first DOCSIS 4.0 project, laying the groundwork for expansion of 10G HFC networks.

CommScope (NASDAQ: COMM) has been selected by Liberty Global to develop and deploy its Remote MACPHY Device (RMD) Node platform for DOCSIS 4.0 (D4.0), as a means to accelerating the broadband operators progress towards 10G capabilities.

CommScope says its RMD Node platform for D4.0 will simplify Liberty Global’s hybrid fiber-coaxial (HFC) network transformation to deliver multi-gigabit services. The move will also provide subscribers with built-in access to emerging high-bandwidth, low-latency services, ultimately enabling Liberty Global to cost-effectively achieve 10G capabilities on its HFC network.
