Re: Need new model suggestion ultimate

Very informative, thank you. However, the source he was quoting from, Broadcom, could very well be a bias source. I mean, of-course they are going to say their newer chip is better. Any engineers (even if non-cox) have a opinion of which performs better in Cox's general infrastructure?

Cox, like any large cable provider, has an infrastructure that varies depending on the area. Different CMTS makes, models, software, and configurations. Yes, they try to get it homogenous over the years, but it never really is.

Then you have to deal with the different modem models AND firmware versions.

This all means a modem which works perfect in one area may have odd issues in another.

Yes, but both methods must work across the network if its on the Cox approved modem list. So I was looking more for a Engineers opinion on what method generally works better in their opinion. Yes, it may be bias to their particular area, but at-least it would be real life input vs what we can read on a datasheet.
