Quick pictures – Cox DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem service

My other piece on Cox DOCSIS 3.0 service:

Cox DOCSIS 3.0 high-speed cable service delivers – but will your home gear?

Some quick and dirty pictures of what I’m using to trial/beta Cox’s 50/5 Mbps DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem service.

For kicks, I put the DOCSIS 3.0 gear on top of the representative 2.0 gear; you’ll note the DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem and its power supply is petite in comparsion to the (Toshiba) 2.0 cable modem generation. This isn’t singling Toshiba; the form factor of the DOCSIS 2.0 gear is more or less the same, regardless of vendor.
