The Upstream Cable Access Module 2 (UCAM-2), Downstream Cable Access Module 2 (UCAM-2) and Router System Module 2 (RSM-2) are the second generation cards for the E6000 CER that provide increased capacity. The Gen 2 Hardware provides support for both Upstream and Downstream DOCSIS 3.1 operation (OFDMA). The Gen 2 hardware allows Operators to deploy both SC-QAMs and OFDMA on each physical port (i.e., each upstream service group); enabling higher throughput with greater spectral efficiency while providing backward compatibility for all currently-deployed modems.
ARRIS offers services to ensure a seamless upgrade to the Gen 2 cards for production E6000 systems. These services include upgrading system software to an ARRIS approved software version supporting the latest hardware, reconfiguration of the E6000 with new CLI settings to support additional channels, and replacement of 1st Generation cards with customer provided 2nd Generation cards.
The ARRIS C4® CMTS is availability, highly dense DOCSIS® 3.0 system designed to deliver the stability and
throughput that MSOs require for advanced services. It features a 21 slot chassis with a mid-plane-based
architecture designed for continuous system operation. This unique architecture allows the C4 CMTS to provide
carrier grade integrated Layer 3 edge routing, hitless RF sparing, and advanced CMTS functionality in a single chassis.
The following modules are supported:
System Control Module (SCM), including support for the SCM II, SCM II EM, SCM II EM(U), and SCM 3
