    NBN Co to start DOCSIS 3.1 field trials in February 

    After wrapping up lab technology testing.

    NBN Co is set to begin its first DOCSIS 3.1 field trials in February next year ahead of a planned commercial launch on the HFC network before the end of 2018.

    The company ran its first lab tests on the technology back in June, and more are scheduled for this month.

    But it will today unveil plans for limited field trials of DOCSIS 3.1 at four HFC nodes starting February 2018.

    The exact location of the trials as well as other “finer details” are yet to be worked through, according to an NBN Co spokesperson.

    “We’re really excited by the possibilities offered by DOCSIS 3.1,” the spokesperson said.

    DOCSIS 3.1 is the next-generation standard for hybrid-fibre coaxial (HFC) networks.

    The upgrade promises better speeds for users, but also “greater operational efficiencies and network diagnostics … and much higher spectrum efficiency, particularly in the upstream”.

    Already, NBN Co has deployed network termination devices (NTDs) in homes in the HFC footprint which are capable of both DOCSIS 3.0 and 3.1.

    NBN Co presently uses Arris equipment in its HFC network under a $400 million deal struck back in 2015. This gear was used to upgrade the existing Telstra HFC network and was initially meant also to upgrade the Optus HFC network, but much of this will instead be replaced outright with a fibre-to-the-curb network instead.

    Arris’ network and cloud president Dan Whalen said his company was seeing both trials and deployments of DOCSIS 3.1 “ramping very quickly” in the US and Europe.

    “We’re involved in trials and deployments with over seven different operators in North America today,” he said.

    “In 2018 we see this quadrupling or quintupling the amount of DOCSIS 3.1 devices that are going to be deployed in the field.

    “There’s a lot of build-up and field trials that have happened already and then we’ll really move into mass scale in 2018 and beyond.”

    While the focus with NBN Co is around the DOCSIS 3.1 upgrade, Whalen said Arris was already discussing the next iteration of HFC beyond that, which is known as full duplex DOCSIS 3.1. It has a view towards achieving multi-gigabit speeds and greater efficiency than its predecessor.

    “We’re already in discussions with NBN Co on full duplex DOCSIS 3.1, and what the requirements would be and when the timing is,” Whalen said.

    “I’d say if it was available today NBN Co would be willing to deploy it, and

    NBN Co hits 1Gbps+ speeds in fixed wireless trials 

    Expands footprint by 100,000.

    NBN Co has demonstrated that it can push peak broadband download speeds on its fixed wireless network from 50Mbps to over 1Gbps.

    The company has been conducting a trial of the technology at a site in Ballarat; the same location from which it announced plans to accelerate peak speeds on its fixed wireless network from 50Mbps to 100Mbps.

    NBN Co achieved maximum peak speeds of 1.1Gbps/165Mbps in the trial. It also demonstrated that intermediate speeds of 400/55Mbps and 250/50Mbps were possible.

    Microsoft trials anti-ransomware feature in Windows 10 

    EMET Exploit Protection arrives in preview build.

    Windows 10 users who have signed up to the bleeding edge ‘fast ring’ updates of the operating system will be able to try out new features to protect against ransomware.

    With the Windows 10 Insider build 16232, Microsoft’s Windows Defender Antivirus lets users designate specific folders or directories on their computers and block applications’ access to them.

    Called Controlled Folder Access, the feature is specifically designed to thwart ransomware attempting to encrypt or otherwise tamper with user files, Microsoft said.

    The feature spans the Windows 10 system directories Documents, Pictures, Movies and Desktop by default when switched on.

    While users cannot change the default folder inclusion list above, they can add other directories like network shares.

    Users can decide which apps are allowed to make changes to files stored in the protected folders; if an app blacklisted by Controlled Folder Access attempts to alter files, users will be notified.

    Microsoft has also tweaked the Windows Defender Application Guard (WDAG) in build 16232.

    It is now possible to persist data such as cookies, bookmarks and saved passwords across multiple sessions when running the Microsoft Edge web browser in a WDAG virtual machine, isolated from the rest of the operating system, to prevent remotely delivered attacks.

    The company’s Enhanced Exploit Mitigation Toolkit (EMET) security add-on is included in build 16232. t The tool was set to be sunset this year, but Microsoft brought it back after customer feedback.

    EMET tries to prevent software bugs and unexpected use of system features from being exploited by new and unknown malware.

    Microsoft has yet to fully document the EMET Exploit Protection feature in the latest Windows 10 Insider build.

    The new security features are expected to appear in next major release for Windows 10, which Microsoft calls the Fall (northern Autumn) Creators Update.
