The Cisco uBR10012, Docsis 3.0 is built to meet the current and future needs of cable operators. Based on Cisco IOS ® Software and featuring full Layer 3 routing capabilities, the Cisco uBR10012 offers advanced networking and routing options.The product supports PacketCable Multimedia (PCMM), enabling cable operators to deploy unique, next-generation multimedia services such as voice over IP (VoIP), video telephony, and broadband online gaming.
The Cisco uBR10012 enables cable operators to deliver feature-rich, high-speed data, voice, and video services to very high subscriber penetrations, typically 1000 to 64,000 subscribers per chassis. With a standards-based, modular design and upgrade flexibility, the Cisco uBR10012 provides cable operators with a quick return on investment and an easy migration path for future growth. The Cisco uBR10012 supports Cisco broadband processing engines (BPEs), including the Cisco 5x20U Broadband Processing Engine, which offers five downstreams and 20 upstreams. This BPE supports DOCSIS and Euro-DOCSIS channel plans, as well as DOCSIS operations in Japan that extend the supported upstream frequency range. With the Cisco 5x20U and the Cisco uBR10012 Performance Routing Engine 2 (PRE-2), cable operators can now offer a broad range of reliable, value-added IP services to as many as 64,000 subscribers per chassis, with guaranteed performance at line rate with leading RF capabilities. The Cisco uBR10012 supports high-performance WAN interfaces. The Cisco Gigabit Ethernet Half-Height Line Card for the Cisco uBR10012 helps address increasing needs for Gigabit Ethernet modularity and density. Two of these half-height line cards can be housed in a single Cisco uBR10012 chassis slot (slots 3 and 4) with the use of a Cisco Half-Height Line Card Carrier. This doubles the Gigabit Ethernet density of the Cisco uBR10012 to maximize slot utilization and decrease system cost per port. All cable line cards and WAN interfaces are optimized for terminating large numbers of subscriber circuits and for handling physical-layer conversions unique to each kind of interface.
The Cisco uBR10012 features these components:
Eight RF line cards connect to the cable plant Two SPAs for wideband channel bonding, which provides bonded downstream data rates up to 240 Mbps One SPA interface processor (SIP), the carrier card for wideband SPAs All contents are Copyright © 1992–2006 Cisco Systems, Inc.
