The Cisco® Explorer® 9800 Multi-Screen Gateway Series provides a Videoscape-Ready solution designed to expand the entertainment experience in existing QAM networks, including viewing and distributing multiple live, on-demand, online, and recorded video content services to other QAM, IP or IP/QAM hybrid managed devices.

The 9800 Multi-Screen Gateway Series provides a powerful, flexible platform that enables customers to capitalize on existing infrastructure while providing the capability of supporting a migration to IP Video and the full Videoscape experience.
The 9800 Multi-Screen Gateway Series provides a no-regrets flexible hybrid front end capable of supporting up to 6 QAM video streams and an 8x4 DOCSIS ® 3.0 IP video pipeline, allowing it to function in current and future HFC architectures*.
The home networking capabilities of the 9800 Multi-Screen Gateway Series are further enhanced by a dual stream HD transcoder*. When paired with a Cisco DOCSIS 3.0 residential gateway and Cisco soft clients, the 9800 Multi-Screen Gateway Series can distribute transcoded content (live, on-demand, online, or recorded) to unmanaged CE devices using the appropriate format and resolution.
The 9800 Multi-Screen Gateway Series supports Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA ), Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA ®) technology, Digital Transmission Content Protection over IP (DTCP-IP), and Digital Rights Management (DRM)* to deliver multimedia content securely to IP devices in the home.
*Optional software required

DVR and Home Networking Features

6 stream DVR allows up to 6 programs to be recorded simultaneously

1 TB Internal Hard Drive Disk stores up to 124 hours of HD programs or 560 hours of SD programs (base Hard Drive Disk configuration, optional Hard Drive Disk configurations available)

MoCA 2.0 Connection enables an IP LAN connection over coaxial cable, which minimizes the need for new wiring in the home

Note: MoCA 2.0 certification will not be completed at the time of the 9800 Product Family launch. However, MoCA1.1 functionality will be fully certified.

Digital Transmission Content Protection over IP (DTCP-IP) provides encrypted content protection, such as "copy-one-generation" or "copy-never" based upon content's copy control information (CCI), when output through an IP connection to an authenticated device

Whole Home DVR enables sharing and managing of video services throughout the home to other connected DVRs, set-tops, and consumer electronic devices using DLNA standards based connection and security technologies (optional software)

Personal media player enables display of photos and playback of video and audio from DLNA standards based home network connected devices (optional software)
