Full Duplex DOCSIS 3.1

With distributed access architecture (DAA) development underway, CableLabs® engineers working on the 3.1 version of the Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification (DOCSIS®) saw an opportunity that leverages DAA to enhance upstream capacity. The resultant Full Duplex (FDX) DOCSIS 3.1 specification defines simultaneous upstream and downstream communications for symmetrical upstream and downstream data rate capacity. The NCTI® Full Duplex DOCSIS 3.1 course teaches the broadband technician about interferences unique to FDX operation and how these interferences are addressed. The course also explains the difference between full duplex operation and frequency division duplexing, and how both are used for FDX DOCSIS 3.1 operations. Completing the NCTI FDX DOCSIS 3.1 course prepares the broadband technician for when FDX DOCSIS 3.1 operations are launched in their network.
