Description

Cisco Converged Broadband Router-8 (cBR-8) is the next generation, highly available, fully redundant, terabit-capable converged cable access platform (CCAP) from Cisco. It allows cable operators to deliver more bandwidth, higher service tiers and greater agility in deploying new applications and services, while minimizing operational expenses, power requirements, and rack space requirements in cable head-ends.

With industry-leading density and the capability to converge DOCSIS data, MPEG video, and IP video onto a single system, the Cisco cBR-8 Converged Broadband Router provides cable operators with a simple, cost-effective path to a full CCAP and the all-IP infrastructure. In addition to new DOCSIS and optical networking capabilities, the Cisco cBR-8 Converged Broadband Router will also be capable of applying Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and virtualization technologies to virtualize, integrate, and automate the access architecture of cable operators.

Features:

  • Carrier Class System
    >Delivers 99.999% availability – Provide system and business continuity
    >Integrated N+1 RF Switch – Supports cost effective and efficient N+1
    >Cisco IOS XE Software subsystem process restart and independent patching ability – Software components with flaws can be fixed by installing a newer, patched version and restarting a process without impacting other components.
    >Industry leading Software Quality and Resiliency – Process restartability helps enable zero packet loss failure recovery in many cases. Software modularity allows for fault containment and memory protection.
    >Industry leading Routing capabilities – Highly intelligent edge routing platform provides full routing functionality including full IPv6 routing feature set, MPLS, etc.
  • Unprecedented and Scalable Capacity and Throughput
    >13 RU and 10 Slot Chassis (8 Subscriber Side Slots, 2 Supervisor Slots) – Industrys most compact and densest CCAP
    >64 Service Groups (56 SG with N+1) – 8DS ports X 16 US ports ensure that Service Group capacity is preserved regardless of 1:1 or 1:2 DS:US SG ratio
    >Up to 256 Service Groups with Remote-PHY – Unprecedented SG scalability with Remote-PHY
    >1+ Terabit backplane – A fully integrated and scalable platform easily allows higher bandwidth new services deployment
    >DS Capacity – 768 Unique D3.0 QAM per line card (6144 per chassis) Plus 2 orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) blocks (192MHz each) per port (16 per line card) – future capability – Almost 4 Gbps per DS port
    >US Capacity – 96 US channels per line card (768 per chassis) Plus 2 OFDMA blocks (96MHz each) per port (32 per line card) – future capability
    >Up to 200Gbps Forwarding – Performance with service intelligence
    >High performance Control Plane – Multi-Core 64 bit architecture with 48GB of memory (expandable to 96 GB)
