DOCSIS-Based Ethernet over Coax (EoC)

Broadcom's DOCSIS®-based Ethernet over Coax (EoC) technology leverages its leadership and proven ability in designing innovative cable solutions for the world market, and is a standards-based, cost-effective way for service providers to ensure a high quality voice, video and data experience for their subscribers, while accelerating the deployment of HDTV programming, advanced services such as DVR, VoD, and even 3D programming, as well as the ability to connect multiple devices in the home, and share content. The technology features standardized Quality of Service (QoS) and interoperability using powerful Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) methods that have been successfully deployed in China.

Broadcom's customized, highly integrated and cost-efficient DOCSIS-based EoC technology supports China's Next Generation Broadcast (NGB) initiative enabling the convergence of telecommunications, internet and cable television networks. The integrated coax media converter (CMC) transitions the DOCSIS-based customer premise equipment from a multi-dwelling unit (MDU) coaxial network to an EPON fiber network. As a result, operators can take advantage of DOCSIS benefits while providing an economical architecture to implement triple-play services to MDUs in China.
