Intel Corp. has announced the Puma 6, a 1Gb/s DOCSIS 3.0 cable gateway solution for cable networks that the company said will enable system operators to offer more users faster access to streaming video, online gaming and other bandwidth-intensive experiences using their existing network infrastructure and DOCSIS 3.0 equipment.

The Intel Puma 6 achieves the 1Gbit/s downstream speeds by bonding up to 24 DOCSIS channels (up from eight bonded channels in a typical deployment today). It has an upload speed that is double current-generation DOCSIS modems. With up to 240Mps upstream (eight bonded channels), more consumers will benefit from new services that include video conferencing, cloud storage and easy sharing.

The Intel Puma family system architecture provides OEMs with flexibility to easily customize their products to fit a wide range of MSO-required and optional features such as high data rates, wireless communications, power down modes and telephone support. Intel was the first to deploy DOCSIS 3.0 technology with Intel Puma 5, and over 20 million DOCSIS 3.0 systems have shipped.
