32-Channel DOCSIS* 3.0 Gateway

Delivering High Speed Broadband at Up to 1.6Gbps

In the past 15 years, broadband speeds have increased more than 900% - and cable service providers have been at the forefront, delivering DOCSIS* 3.0 platforms. But consumers want more. From Smart TVs to television on laptops consumers are connecting more devices to the Internet and demanding faster broadband connections. The 32-channel DOCSIS* 3.0 Intel® Puma™ 6 SoC combined with the 32-channel MxL268 Full-Spectrum Capture* tuner helps cable system manufacturers meet demand for faster broadband speeds, supporting data rates up to 1.6 Gigabits per second (Gbps).

Easily Extend Engineering Investments with Pin-Compatible Upgrade Path and DOCSIS 3.1 Capability

Intel and MaxLinear were the first to deploy 16- and 24-channel DOCSIS* 3.0 technology and are extending that innovation into 32-channel cable gateways and modems. By bonding up to 32 DOCSIS* 3.0 channels, the system design delivers 33% more downstream bandwidth in the same power envelope and provides a pin-compatible upgrade path from 16 to 24 to 32 channels. Providing a unified Intel® Puma™ 6 SoC development environment for every speed node allows service providers to seamlessly extend their current gateway investments.

Forward-Looking Capabilities

The 32-channel DOCSIS* 3.0 Intel® Puma™ 6 SoC solution allows OEMs to easily take advantage of the new platform without reengineering or recertifying. In addition, this solution provides future network compatibility with DOCSIS* 3.1, which includes a requirement for up to 32 single carrier QAM channels.
