Cable modems could have triple the upstream capacity by the end of 2002, enabling video conferencing and peer-to-peer applications over cable connections.



Cable Television Laboratories (known as CableLabs), a consortium of cable operators from North and South America, has completed the specification for DOCSIS 2.0 (Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification).

The specification boosts the capacity of the upstream side of the connection compared to the previous version to 30 megabits per second in both directions, CableLabs said in a statement on Thursday.

DOCSIS 2.0 defines two modulation techniques: S-CDMA (synchronous code division multiple access) and A-TDMA (advanced frequency-agile time division multiple access).

Interoperability testing of products is due to start in the first quarter of this year and certification testing is expected by the third quarter, the consortium said.

Cable operators and suppliers have been working on the new specification since 1998, CableLabs said.

hey jimmie, what location did you work in? they audit the accounts every week or so anyway so even if i were to "bump" you up to gold it would just get bumped back down again. besides, hehe i have told a few of my coworkers about this site, and it wouldnt look to good me handing out gold bumps now would it! ?? :twisted: i kinda like my job and would like to keep it... :usa

well i dont have a lot of pull power in the HR dept... but if you put in an app and call back and ask for scott youll have a fighting chance. he is the head of the h/r dept
It also looks like you called in on the 28th to tll us about an outage in your area, and that you will be calling back for a credit on your account :-P you account is current and up to date, always a plus when applying for a position here


good luck
