Cable History Timeline Narrative

The Cable History Timeline Narrative is a comprehensive exhibit documenting the cable industry’s evolution from the community antennae television of the 1940s through decades of progress, technological advances, and major cultural impacts. Cable and connectivity have, quite plainly, changed the world, and this exhibit navigates the timeline of that change.

Development of DOCSIS

It was cable industry pioneers who figured out that the cable modem held the answers to solving the problem of extremely slow dial-up internet. This story is all about the development of the cable modem—and DOCSIS, its underlying software program—and how this innovation completely changed how we use the internet while completing the bridge between cable telecommunications and digital networking.
