Shaw expands 100Mbps symmetrical Ethernet over DOCSIS for businesses of all sizes

22 Jan 2019

Shaw Business – part of cableco Shaw Communications – announced yesterday that it can now deliver up to 100Mbps symmetrical private data connections to over 300,000 business locations across Western Canada with next generation Ethernet over DOCSIS (EoD) technology. The enhanced EoD solution is integrated into a single-box deployment using Shaw’s DOCSIS 3.1 modem, with fully-automated provisioning aimed at easing and speeding up customers’ self-installation. Shaw’s Katherine Emberly said: ‘We know that businesses of all sizes increasingly need faster, scalable and more flexible solutions to fuel their operations’, while the operator claims to now offer ‘the fastest broadly-available symmetrical speeds of any cable provider in North America’. A press release also notes that the EoD solution can be paired with Shaw’s fibre-based Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) solution.
