The Cisco DPC3000 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem features a 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet port that allows interfacing with a router or personal computer. The LEDs on the router's front panel indicate the current status of the modem and are useful for troubleshooting.
The DOCSIS 3.0 Certified router has a maximum 160Mbps download and 120Mbps upstream, and meets industry standards for data connectivity at high speeds. These speeds are up to eight times faster than single-channel DOCSIS 2.0 cable modems. The faster connection is created by four bonded downstream channels implemented with four bonded upstream channels. The cable modem is an essential part of the cable Internet connection for any home or office, as it receives the cable signal and converts it to data ready to be sent on to a router or computer.
The Cisco DPC3000 DOCSIS 3.0 Certified router uses enhanced packet processing technology that, with the proper network setup, allows for up to 64 users on a single connection.
To use the Cisco DPC3000 DOCSIS 3.0 Certified router, you must have a cable Internet service provider. It is compatible with most major United States cable providers; the ISP can inform you of whether the device is compatible with your connection.
