DOCSIS - Data Over Cable Standards ... An industry standard that cable companies and modem makers are going to - albeit slowly. There are currently 3 DOCSIS standards in use ... 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0

There are different ways to transmit data over cable for best combination of up and down speeds and number of users on any given cable. Two common ones are S-CDMA as used by the manufacturer Terayon (which is comparatively inexpensive) ... and DOCSIS ...

Each standard offers its own advantages.

DOCSIS has the advantage that the cable operator can use the best deal he can get on modems instead of stuck with proprietary modems. It also has the advantage of lower cost upgradeability.

From the users perspective DOCSIS modems have shown themselves to normally offer better speeds and stability than other types, although that may be for other reasons ... there aren't enough fully DOCSIS compliant areas out there to know for sure.
