160 Mbps in DOCSIS mode and 195 Mbps in Euro-

DOCSIS mode*, without the need for hybrid fiber

coax (HFC) plant upgrade. Maximizing an operator’s

current infrastructure investment, the SB6120 can be

deployed without service interruption.

Backwards compatible to DOCSIS 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0, the

SB6120 also supports both IPv4 and IPv6, Advanced

Encryption Services, and all other DOCSIS 3.0
