Ortel Broadband launches 50 Mbps DOCSIS 3.0 internet

MUMBAI: Ortel Communications has introduced 50 Mbps mega speed DOCSIS 3.0 broadband internet in Odisha. While initially being deployed in Bhubaneswar, the service will be made available in other markets as well.


DOCSIS 3.0 allows a much higher throughput compared to the earlier versions by using multi-channel bonding simultaneously for download/upload.


Ortel Communications president and CEO Bibhu Prasad Rath said, “We are happy to launch mega speed broadband services of up to 50 Mbps on DOCSIS 3.0 technology. This will redefine the consumer experience of internet usage and we believe that mega speed internet at low cost will revolutionize the internet markets that we are present in. We intend to aggressively pursue this in our markets which will help us increase the overall broadband subscriber base. The company plans to actively deploy DOCSIS 3.0 modems to deliver impressive internet surfing experience to its subscribers. With faster digitization of cable TV customers, we will be in a strong position to leverage the opportunity by offering COMBO plans of Digital TV and Internet connections.”


DOCSIS technology has been developed by CableLabs, an International consortium of cable operators and MSOs, and approved by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU-T). This technology has been widely used in Europe and USA by leading ISPs.


The internet subscribers in India have evolved over a period of time and Ortel Broadband has launched the mega speed broadband internet plans to cater to subscribers who have increased video led internet consumption. HD video content viewings as well as increased download speeds are the main benefits of DOCSIS 3.0 mega speed Ortel Broadband. Higher end online gaming responses will be almost real time. Ortel Broadband DOCSIS 3.0 subscribers can download a movie of 750 MB in two minutes and video songs can be downloaded within seconds based on the plans selected and system configuration.


The company has invested in laying its own network with reverse path compatibility making it capable of providing Triple play service including broadband and VoIP services.
