MaxLinear Enables Symmetrical Multi-Gigabit Internet Speeds

MaxLinear, Inc. (NYSE:MXL), a provider of radio frequency (RF), analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits, has introduced its Full Duplex DOCSIS® (FDX) technology with proprietary echo cancellation technology, the company said.

FDX allows the re-use of the last-mile coaxial cable infrastructure to cost-effectively provide fiber-like Internet access speeds.

The combination of FDX and DOCSIS 3.1 technologies will provide cable service providers a platform to deploy multi-gigabit upstream speeds for broadband services.

Unlike traditional upstream speed increases where the upstream spectrum reduces the total downstream spectrum, FDX is able to simultaneously share the spectrum for both upstream and downstream traffic, allowing cable operators to extend upstream speeds without sacrificing valuable downstream spectrum.
