Residential and business customers in New England markets to experience faster services.
Cisco announced it has teamed with Cox Communications to deploy the Cox DOCSIS 3.0-based "Ultimate Internet" service, with up to 50 megabits per second downstream, to its customers in Rhode Island.
DOCSIS 3.0 service offers Cox residential customers faster online access for music and movie downloads, file transfers, video streaming, interactive live-action gaming and other high-demand services.
Cox is also now offering its New England business customers a new premium package with the DOCSIS 3.0 technology, offering enhanced support for corporate e-mail, online research and Web-based business applications.
Cisco and Cox have been working together to evolve the Cox broadband network to an Internet Protocol next-generation network (IP NGN) optimized to deliver more social, more interactive and more personalized experiences.
Cox deployed its Ultimate Internet service package with Cisco DOCSIS 3.0 technologies in additional markets earlier this year, including Lafayette Parish, La., Northern Virginia (Fairfax County and Fredericksburg, Va.), and Palos Verdes, Ca.
"With the explosion of video traffic and social networking applications on the networks, speed and reliability are critical factors to keeping our customers happy," said Seth Hogan, vice president of data product management, Cox Communications. "Cisco's IP expertise has helped us continuously strengthen and broaden our network to offer faster-than-ever Internet speeds, getting us closer to our goal of launching Ultimate Internet to more than two-thirds of our footprint by the end of 2010."
