US vendor Cisco Systems and German municipal multi-service operator (MSO) NetCologne have jointly demonstrated a 200Mbps broadband service at the ANGA Cable Trade Fair in Cologne. The high speed service, which will be provided over NetCologne’s hybrid fibre coaxial (HFC) network, is cabaple of supporting multiple live streams of high-definition video. ‘We are demonstrating up to 200Mbps today but we know that we can achieve double that bandwidth and more with Cisco [technology] over our existing HFC infrastructure,’ said Guido Schwarzfeld, head of the broadband cable division at NetCologne. NetCologne intends to harmonise the different types of infrastructure it operates, and will initially offer its clients internet connections of up to 100Mbps via both its HFC and fibre-to-the-building (FTTB) networks.
