Cisco Supplies 3G60 Broadband Processing Engine for Virgin Media

Cisco has supplied its DOCSIS 3.0 solution to Virgin Media for use in its trial of the world's fastest cable connection -- a service boasting up to 1.5 Gbps downstream and 150 Mbps upstream. The connection is delivered over the same HFC infrastructure and technology as Virgin Media uses to provide residential customers with speeds of up to 100 Mbps, which is currently being rolled out to over half of all UK homes.

The trial includes Cisco's (3G60) Broadband Processing Engine, a high-density, cost-effective line card for Cisco's flagship uBR10K Universal Broadband Router and Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS).
