Vodafone Germany picks CommScope’s DOCSIS 3.1 gateway

June 11, 2020
More than one million Vodafone Germany residential customers are using CommScope's DOCSIS 3.1 Gateway for more powerful home networks.

CommScope (NASDAQ: COMM) today announced that more than one million Vodafone Germany subscribers are using CommScope’s DOCSIS 3.1 Touchstone TG3442 Gateway in their homes, enabling download speeds of up to 1Gbit/s. DOCSIS 3.1 broadband technology now enables these customers to take advantage of emerging technologies such as cloud gaming, virtual reality entertainment, and 4K video streaming services across the home.

CommScope notes that the cable industry continues to see a 20-30 percent average increase in bandwidth use every year, as people tap into more connected technology to work from home, online learning, video chatting, live gaming, and TV. By deploying CommScope’s DOCSIS 3.1 modem, Vodafone Germany customers will have improved broadband speed, lower latency and increased energy efficiency.

CommScope says the 1Gbit/s device offers unparalleled WAN and LAN network performance and serves as the hub of service delivery in the subscriber’s home; providing high-speed data, voice and IP video to wired and Wi-Fi connected devices. To enable such speeds and smart capacity management, Vodafone Germany is using CommScope’s full DOCSIS 3.1 system, supported by the company's E6000 converged cable access platform (CCAP). This means Vodafone Germany can deliver the high speeds its customers require, with intelligent software-driven orchestration to manage capacity and connectivity, as well as providing best-in-class analytics on network performance.

“Today, more than ever, people expect their connectivity to be there no matter if they are working from home, the kids are playing games or if they are finishing their eLearning assignments,” commented Phil Sorsky, senior vice president of Service Providers for EMEA, CommScope. “Vodafone Germany is laying the framework for a new connected world as we see how crucial the Internet is in keeping our society functioning in the face of rapid and unpredictable change.
