S1, E12 DOCSIS 20th Anniversary Panel

April 18, 2017

DOCSIS celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2015. To commemorate this industry milestone, Larry Satkowiak, former President and CEO of The Cable Center, gathered CableLabs veterans Robert Cruickshank III, Thomas Moore, and Brian Reilly to chronicle their work together on the DOCSIS development process in the early 1990s, leading up to the deployment of cable modems and two-way broadband communications at speeds nobody had seen before. Cruickshank also discusses the lessons learned from the telephone companies’ development of ISDN and the importance of standardized equipment specifications and interoperability.
