A CDE Definition
The European DOCSIS cable modem standards. In Europe, PAL TV uses 8 MHz TV channels, enabling greater speeds than the 6 MHz channels used for NTSC in the U.S. and Canada. European research, standards development and certification for EuroDOCSIS is provided by EuroCableLabs (ECL), and the ITU and ETSI have adopted some of the ECL standards. For more information, visit www.eurocablelabs.com. See DOCSIS.
(Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification) A cable modem standard from the CableLabs research consortium (www.cablelabs.com), which provides equipment certification for interoperability. DOCSIS supports IP traffic (Internet traffic) over digital cable TV channels, and current cable modems are DOCSIS compliant. In 2006, DOCSIS 3.0 added the capability of bonding from four to 32 upstream channels and from four to eight downstream. All bandwidth is shared among neighboring subscribers.
Originally formed by four major cable operators and managed by Multimedia Cable Network System, management of the project was later turned over to CableLabs. See cable modem, EuroDOCSIS, eDOCSIS, CMTS and S-CDMA.
