This project marks the industry’s first D4.0 initiative in Europe and leverages CommScope’s DOCSIS leadership and solutions to deliver a new custom node and RMD platform specifically for Liberty Global.

The RMD Node platform for D4.0 will simplify Liberty Global’s hybrid fiber-coaxial (HFC) network transformation to deliver multi-gigabit services. Liberty Global aims to achieve 10G capabilities on the HFC network cost-effectively.

“Our D4.0 project is an important step forward in our 10G vision for the future,” said Colin Buechner, Chief Network Officer of Liberty Global. “We selected CommScope to extend the capabilities of our HFC network into the next decade, because of their proven leadership and expertise in DOCSIS and next-generation networks.”

Guy Sucharczuk, President, Access Network Solutions, CommScope, said: “Our partnership with Liberty Global positions us to deliver D4.0 solutions specific to its HFC network. This is a showcase for the global transformation of HFC into tomorrow’s 10G networks.”
