In addition, Juniper's ECM3100 became the first embedded cable modem module, or "eCMM," to receive DOCSIS 3.0 certification. CableLabs also granted PacketCable 1.5 certification to the Cisco DPQ3212 and the Netgear CG3000, which supports up to eight bonded channels downstream and four upstream to provide connection speeds up to 320 Mbps downstream and 120 Mbps upstream.
The DOCSIS 3.0 specification requires products to support Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6), as well as be backward-compatible with DOCSIS 2.0 and DOCSIS 1.1.
