Why C9 CMTS?

  • User Centric Design: C3000 series is a result of over 15 years of bleeding edge first to the market, best in class products developed in Sunnyvale (Silicon Valley), California.
  • Lowest Cost of ownership.
  • Optimized for small/medium MSO’s, MDU’s and small communities.
  • Power of Integration: SMS, DOCSIS management, IP monitoring and RF monitoring functions all implemented in one device, providing a consolidated view of all the relevant RF and IP data making it easy to debug the network.
  • Advanced Plant Monitoring to collect network & RF plant statistics & history

Technologically Superior

  • Triple CPU System – Three CPU systems to handle different critical groups of tasks.

CPU-1:  Monitor the hardware, health of the system and emergency shut off features.

CPU-2:  Handle DOCSIS functions, DOCSIS QoS and other related functions.

CPU-3:  Packet filtering and monitoring, IP QoS, Watchdog to monitor system stability and performance.

  • Scalability: With CPU-3, which is inline and dedicated for enhancements, this product offers enormous scalability to add new features making the C9 CMTS stand apart from the competition.

Features of the C3000 series

Like to all C9 CMTS units shipped over the last 15 years, the product is highly integrated, price-performance optimized with the management servers integrated into a single compact unit. The key features of the product are described below:

 

DOCSIS CMTS Functions

The CMTS is available in different Downstream (DS) models: The C3400 with 4DS provides 160Mbps; the C3800 with 8 downstreams provides 320Mbps; the C3900 with 16DS provides 640Mbps. In Euro-DOCSIS mode the C3800 provides about 400Mbps and C3900 provides 800Mbps approximately. The product has 4 upstreams (US) providing 30Mbps max per upstream channel for a total upstream bandwidth of 120Mbps.

 

Configuration and Monitoring

Web browser based Configuration & Monitoring.

Web server for local & remote Configuration and Management.

 

RF Plant Monitoring

Several RF parameters like power levels and noise levels at the CMTS and the modems are measured to get a snapshot of the RF health of the network.

DOCSIS Provisioning Servers

Includes DOCSIS management servers like DHCP, TFTP & ToD.

Subscriber Management Server (SMS) provides subscriber activation and deactivation function.

No annual subscription. (License for life of product).

 

DHCP Relay

This function allows the operators to bypass the in-built management servers and use an external management and provisioning server based on standards.

 

Triple CPU System

The CMTS has three CPU systems to handle different critical groups of tasks:

CPU-1:  Monitor the hardware, health of system and emergency shut off features.

CPU-2:  Handle DOCSIS functions, DOCSIS QoS and other related functions.

CPU-3:  Packet filtering and monitoring, IP QoS, Watchdog to monitor system stability and performance;

  • Scalability: With CPU-3, which is inline and dedicated for enhancements, this product offers enormous scalability to add new features making the C9 CMTS stand apart from the competition.
