Korea's Hanaro Deploys 100Mbps DOCSIS 3.0 with Cisco

Hanaro Telecom, a leading broadband provider in Korea, is deploying Cisco's channel-bonding technology to deliver 100 Mbps residential services over its hybrid fiber-coaxial (HFC) networks. Cisco's platform is designed based on the downstream channel-bonding specifications defined in CableLabs' Data Over Cable Service Interface Specifications (DOCSIS) 3.0 specification. The network capacity is used to deliver HanaTV, Hanaro's video-on-demand IPTV service.

Hanaro Telecom began the deployment in April 2007, and 200,000 homes have subscribed to Hanaro's broadband services over the five months since the service was launched.

Cisco said its uBR10012 cable modem termination system (CMTS) provides a smooth upgrade path to modular CMTS and DOCSIS 3.0, both key industry standards for next-generation cable modem services.
