This is a standard for cable modems that was ratified by the ITU in March 1998. Before DOCSIS, cable modems made by one brand would not necessarily work...
DOCSIS, or Data Over Cable Systems Interface Specifications, specifies schemes and the protocol for exchanging bidirectional signals over cable. It supports downstream-to-the-user data rates up to 27 Mbps (megabits per second). Since this data rate is shared by a number of users and because many cable operators will be limited by a connection to the Internet, the actual downstream data rate to an individual business or home will be more like 1.5 to 3 Mbps. Since the upstream data flow has to support much smaller amounts of data from the user, it's designed for an aggregate data rate of 10 Mbps with individual data rates between 500 Kbps and 2.5 Mbps.
Data Over Cable Service Interface Specifications is a standard interface for cable modems, the devices that handle incoming and outgoing data signals between a cable TV operator and a computer or television set
