Excentis actively contributes to the Wireshark community to integrate the XRA-31 support and improve the DOCSIS protocol parser.

The results of these efforts are now available in the official release of Wireshark 2.6!

The Excentis version 2.6 of Wireshark is based on the official Wireshark 2.6 releases.
