Overview of Cisco RF Gateway 10 UEQAM Platform

The Cisco RFGW-10 is a carrier-class Universal Edge QAM (UEQAM) platform that offers concurrent support for standard and high-definition digital broadcast television, Switched Digital Video (SDV), Video on Demand (VoD), and DOCSIS/Modular CMTS services. It is a chassis-based product based on open standards with superior performance, capacity, power consumption, ease of management, and scalability. All components of the Cisco RFGW-10 are designed for high availability, including dual Supervisor and Ethernet switching line cards, 1:N Universal Edge QAM line cards, dual timing, communication and control (TCC) line cards, dual load balancing and load sharing DC PEMs and integrated RF switching modules.

The Cisco RFGW-10 is a centralized switching architecture leveraged from the Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series switches. The Cisco RFGW-10 is a 13-rack unit, modular chassis designed for providing front-to-back airflow and system-level redundancy. All chassis components are hot-swappable and redundant. The chassis supports “wire-once” cabling for RF line cards and an integrated dual-zone RF switch matrix. The Supervisor Engine 7-E provides robust Layer 2 to Layer 4 switching with up to 848 Gbps, and up to 250 Mbps packet throughput

These sections list the new and existing hardware and software features supported by the Cisco RFGW-10:

New Hardware Features in Cisco IOS-XE Release 3.4.0SQ

There are no new hardware features for Cisco IOS-XE Release 3.4.0SQ.

New Software Features in Cisco IOS-XE Release 3.4.0SQ

This section describes the new software features supported in the Cisco IOS-XE Release 3.4.0SQ.

1024 QAM Scaling

Effective with Cisco IOS-XE Release 3.4.0SQ, for Annex B, the Cisco RFGW-10 supports a maximum of 1024 downstream channels per line card, where a maximum of 384 QAMs as pilots and a maximum of 640 QAMs as replicate.

For Annex A, the Cisco RFGW-10 supports a maximum of 768 downstream channels per line card, where a maximum of 288 as pilot and 480 as replicate.

For more information, see the RFGW-10 Video document at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/cable/rf_gateway/feature/guide/rfgw_scg/rfgw10_video.html

Broadcast Digital Video

Broadcast Digital Video (BDV) sessions are Multicast MPTSs. Typically, the User-defined Mapping or Session-based Signaling is used. It is typically cloned to multiple QAM channels due to its broadcast nature. The BDV session should be a pass-through session.

For more information, see the Cisco RF Gateway 10 Software Configuration Guide at the URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/cable/rf_gateway/feature/guide/rfgw10_video.html

DVB Licensing

Effective with Cisco IOS-XE Release 3.4.0SQ, the Cisco RF Gateway 10 DS-384 line card supports the Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) license. The DVB license enables you to delay investing in QAM encryption until the entire network is ready for deployment.

For more information, see the Software License Activation for Cisco RF Gateway 10 Line Cards document at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/cable/rf_gateway/license/rfgw_license.html

DVB Scrambling

Effective with Cisco IOS-XE Release 3.4.0SQ, video sessions can be encrypted with DVB. DVB scrambling is performed using the DVB-Common Scrambling Algorithm (CSA). The encryption capability is enforced by the Cisco software license.

For more information, see the RFGW-10 Video document at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/cable/rf_gateway/feature/guide/rfgw_scg/rfgw10_video.html

MPEG Enhancements

Effective with Cisco IOS-XE Release 3.4.0SQ, MPEG enhancements feature is introduced on the Cisco RFGW-10 to support the following features:

  • Program and PID filtering
  • PID reservation
  • Configuring the Original Network ID (ONID)
  • One-stream de-jittering mode.
  • SI table details
  • MPTS remapping

The following commands were introduced or modified:

  • cable downstream onid
  • cable video reserved-pid
  • cable video multicast
  • cable video ip udp
  • cable video ip multicast
  • show cable video session

For more information, see the RFGW-10 Video document at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/cable/rf_gateway/feature/guide/rfgw_scg/rfgw10_video.html

Spectral Inversion

By default UPX will send the inverted spectral signal to the output. Some STBs/Modems cannot process the inverted signals. Signals are inverted when QCF module converts 6 bit 64QAM constellation and 8 bit 256QAM constellation to 10 bit symmetric and power normalized QAM constellation. Effective with Cisco IOS-XE Release 3.4.0SQ, the QAM Constellation Spectral Inversion feature provides support for non-inverted modulated signals, on the Cisco RFGW-10 DS-384 line card.

To configure channel spectrum inversion (set inverted signal output) of QAM constellation, use the cable downstream spectral-inversion command.

For more information, see the cable downstream spectral-inversion command at:

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/cable/rf_gateway/feature/guide/rfgw10_gui.html

New and Changed MIB Information in Cisco IOS-XE Release 3.4.0SQ

The following MIB was updated in Cisco IOS-XE Release 3.4.0SQ:

SCTE-HMS-MPEG-MIB

Effective with Cisco IOS-XE Release 3.4.0SQ, the Cisco RF Gateway 10 supports the mpegInputTSNitPid and mpegOutputTSNitPid MIB objects.

Important Notes

Cisco IOS-XE Release 3.4.0SQ

  • The Cisco RF Gateway 10 Supervisor Engine 7-E uplink ports are not recommended for data or management traffic.
    The Supervisor 7-E card has four uplink ports on its front panel. Only the top two ports are active in redundancy mode. However, in redundancy mode, packet loss occurs in the traffic paths between the uplink ports on the standby Supervisor card and the switch fabric on the active Supervisor card. There is no packet loss for uplink ports on active supervisors.
    The uplink ports on the Cisco RFGW-10 DS-384 and the Cisco RFGW-10 DS-48 line cards are recommended for data and management traffic.
  • Effective with Cisco IOS-XE Release 3.4.0SQ, the onid keyword is removed from the cable downstream tsid command and replaced with the cable downstream onid command.
  • Effective from Cisco IOS-XE Release 3.4.0SQ, if Annex A is configured, then the Logical QAM groups must be configured contiguously, for example, lqam-group1, lqam-group2, lqam-group3, and so on.
  • Effective with Cisco IOS-XE Release 3.4.0SQ, while using the replicate-qam command, the keywords qam , Qam , qam-red , Qam-red should be explicitly typed. Typing q or Q and pressing Tab will not auto-complete it.
  • Effective with Cisco IOS-XE Release 3.4.0SQ, a replicate with DEPI remote learn should be removed from the QRG before defaulting it, if not it may lead to QRG corruption.
  • Effective with Cisco IOS-XE Release 3.4.0SQ, a PID should be filtered before scrambling a session, filtering of PID on the scrambled session can lead to unwarranted results.
  • Effective with Cisco IOS-XE Release 3.4.0SQ, bulk QRG removal is supported only through GUI. It takes about 3 seconds to complete the action with this option. While using this option the user should not simultaneously access the console to enter any commands. If the console is accessed simultaneously, the QRG removal in the standby supervisor card may be affected.
  • Effective with Cisco IOS-XE Release 3.4.0SQ, scrambling of MPTS remap sessions are not supported.

Limitations and Restrictions

This section lists the limitations and restrictions for the Cisco IOS-XE Release 3.4SQ train on the Cisco RFGW-10:
