How to Future-proof your Network

September 9, 2021

To have any longevity in your WiFi and internet, you need to future-proof your home network. While that may seem daunting, future-proofing your home network can be made easier by purchasing a cable modem equipped with DOCSIS 3.1 technology.


DOCSIS (Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification) is the standard for transferring data over TV cable coaxial systems. Transferring data via coaxial cables makes it possible for any cable modem to work with any coax system. But what makes DOSCIS 3.1 future proof?


For starters, a cable modem with DOCSIS 3.1 has the newest, most up-to-date technology. In fact, it’s 10x faster than its predecessor, DOCSIS 3.0, meaning it delivers the fastest speeds available from your internet provider, today and tomorrow, which makes your cable modem “future-proof”. Additionally, DOCSIS 3.1 has reduced packet latency, so you will have improved performance for better HD video streaming and online gaming. Count these other advantages of a DOCSIS 3.1 cable modem to future-proof your network:


  1. DOCSIS 3.1 cable modem is capable of speeds up to 10 Gbps and is specifically designed for handling extremely fast Gigabit speeds
  2. DOCSIS 3.1 cable modem is more energy efficient because it allows your cable modem to go to “sleep” mode when you aren’t using it
  3. DOCSIS 3.1 cable modem has better security than previous DOCSIS versions


Hitron’s CODA DOCSIS 3.1 Cable Modem is capable of upload speeds up to 10 Gbps and includes two Gigabit Ethernet ports to provide a faster wired connection to your WiFi router or computer.
