The industry’s first full DOCSIS 3.1 CCAP line-card, the DS8x192, is the downstream module in the C100G. It supports DOCSIS 3.1, EuroDOCSIS 3.0, and DOCSIS 3.0 standards for service provider flexibility. The 8 physical RF F-connector ports each support the entire 1.2GHz spectrum (48MHz to 1.218GHz) for OFDM channels, and support SC-QAM. The narrowcast channels on each port can be used to transmit DOCSIS packets, SDV stream, and VOD stream on the same port. The DS8x192 also provides a pool of shared channels, which can be used to support linear broadcast, or as narrowcast channels by dividing the pool and assigning the channels to each individual RF port.
