What is multicasting?
In computer networking, multicasting (one-to-many or many-to-many distribution) is group communication where information is addressed to a group of destination computers simultaneously. WiDOX 3.1 technology allows the delivery of the same multicast data to all subscribers at the same time.
What is adaptive modulation?
Link adaptation, or adaptive modulation and coding (AMC), is a term used in wireless communications to denote the matching of the modulation, coding and other signal, and protocol parameters to the conditions on the radio link (e.g., the path loss, the interference due to signals coming from other transmitters, the sensitivity of the receiver, the available transmitter power margin, etc.)
What is DOCSIS
The original definition of DOCSIS is Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification. DOCSIS is one of the most widely deployed transport and physical layer protocols in the world, used in cable TV systems (tens of millions deployed), satellite communication (WildBlue), data over power line, and wireless (WiDox).
What are the benefits of using full duplex DOCSIS 3.0 system for wireless connectivity?
- It allows a much higher throughput
- It allows multiple upstream and downstream channels bonding capability to increase bandwidth, maintaining the maximum possible speed (operates in multiple channels simultaneously for download and upload)
What is full duplex and half-duplex?
Full-duplex allows simultaneous transmission and reception and maintains consistent high data rate to the edge of service area/distance subscribers, whereas half-duplex allows only transmission or reception to occur and may not maintain full data rate consistently to the edge of service area/distance subscribers. WIDOX 3.1 is a full-duplex solution and MiLTE is a half-duplex solution.
