  • The cable physical plant must be capable of supporting the higher bandwidth S-CDMA modulation profiles.
  • DOCSIS 2.0 compliant cable modems (CMs).
  • DOCSIS 1.0 or DOCSIS 1.1 provisioned DOCSIS configuration file.
  • Upstream configured for DOCSIS 2.0 S-CDMA or DOCSIS 3.0 S-CDMA mode.
  • Complete a basic configuration of the Cisco uBR10012 router; this includes, at a minimum, the following tasks:

Configure a host name and password for the router.

Configure the router to support Internet Protocol (IP) operations.

Install and configure at least one Wide Area Network (WAN) adapter to provide backbone connectivity.

  • Determine a channel plan for your router and all of its cable interfaces.
  • Verify that your headend site includes all necessary servers to support DOCSIS and Internet connectivity, including Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), Time of Day (ToD), and Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) servers.
  • The system clock on the router should be set to the current date and time to ensure that the system logs have the proper timestamp and the Baseline Privacy Interface Plus (BPI+) subsystem uses the correct timestamp for verifying cable modem digital certificates.

Restrictions for S-CDMA and Logical Channel Support

The S-CDMA feature has the following restrictions and limitations:

  • The S-CDMA feature is not supported on the Cisco uBR10-MC5X20H cable interface line card.
  • DOCSIS 1.0 provisioned CM configuration file is not recommended or allowed for cable modems on the S-CDMA channel.
  • The Cisco IOS Release 12.2(33)SCC supports a maximum of 10 modulation profiles for each of the DOCSIS 2.0 A-TDMA and S-CDMA modes. However, if you enable the global modulation profile there is no restriction on the number of modulation profiles you can use, and can assign any modulation profile number to any DOCSIS mode.
  • Advanced hardware-based spectrum management features (such as guided frequency hopping, dynamic upstream modulation, and proactive carrier-to-noise ratio [CNR] based frequency hopping and channel width changes) are not supported for S-CDMA upstreams.
  • Changing the DOCSIS mode of an upstream takes all cable modems on that upstream offline, which forces the cable modems to reregister, so that the CMTS can determine the capabilities of the cable modems on the new channels.
  • For the S-CDMA high availability, there should be timestamp, minislot, and frame counters synchronization between the working and the protect line cards.
  • The DOCSIS 3.0 option scdma-d3 (4SR) is available only when the CMTS is configured to operate in the global modulation profile format.
  • If you revert to the legacy modulation profile from the global modulation profile, all the modulation profiles that are outside of the legacy number space range are lost.

The Logical Channel Support feature has the following restrictions and limitations:

  • The CMTS must support the logical channel types 3S and 4SR individually on the Cisco uBR-MC88V cable interface line card.
  • The Cisco uBR10-MC5X20H, Cisco UBR-MC20X20V, and Cisco uBR-MC88Vcable interface line cards can only support up to two logical channels per physical port.
  • The upstream bonding at the logical channel level is supported with the following limitations:

The upstream bonding of the logical channels from the same physical port (on the same radio frequency spectrum) is not allowed.

The upstream bonding is available only to the first logical channel on each physical port.

  • Admission control policy cannot be configured at the logical channel level.
  • Load balancing is restricted only to the first logical channel. However, the secondary logical channel can be selected as the source channel and not the target channel. That is, load balancing can only move modems from the secondary logical channel, and not to the secondary logical channel.

Information About S-CDMA and Logical Channel Support

The following sections describe the S-CDMA and Logical Channel Support feature:

S-CDMA Services

S-CDMA provides a number of advanced physical layer (PHY) capabilities as per the new DOCSIS 3.0 specifications, which improves the maximum upstream bandwidth on cable networks.

The S-CDMA feature allows the same physical RF upstream channel to receive multiple bursts simultaneously. It uses a two-dimensional (time and code) data transmission technique where multiple modems can simultaneously send their data, each using their own codes, in the same time slot. The codes are orthogonal in nature and do not interfere with each other.

Data is sent over an array of up to 128 spreading codes and all modems are required to transmit their data at precisely the same time. This means that the CMTS and modems have to be synchronized at the symbol clock level (known as synchronous CDMA).

A burst from a particular cable modem may be transmitted on two or more codes (out of the available 128 codes) in one or more frames. A frame can contain bursts transmitted simultaneously from multiple CMs (each on a separate subset of codes) defined as per MAP messages.

The S-CDMA feature allows cable system operators to utilize parts of the upstream below 20 MHz that was previously unusable due to noise conditions. This type of noise cannot be removed with the ingress noise cancellation technology available as part of the DOCSIS 2.0 standard.

The S-CDMA feature incorporates the following advantages and improvements on DOCSIS 3.0 networks:

  • Upstreams can be configured for two different modes to support different mixes of cable modems:

S-CDMA mode to support DOCSIS 2.0 cable modems.

S-CDMA-d3 mode to support DOCSIS 3.0 cable modems.

  • S-CDMA-d3 mode allows DOCSIS 3.0 modems to use all data interval usage codes (IUC) like IUC 5, 6, 9, 10, and 11 for data bursts.
  • S-CDMA mode of operation provides higher bandwidth on the upstream using 64-QAM, 32-QAM, 16-QAM, 8-QAM, and QPSK modulation profiles.

Table 2 shows the maximum data rates supported on S-CDMA.

Modulation Profiles

To simplify the administration of Advanced Time Division Multiple Access (A-TDMA) and S-CDMA modulation profiles, the S-CDMA feature provides a number of preconfigured modulation profiles that are optimized for different modulation schemes. We recommend using these preconfigured profiles.

Each mode of operation also defines a default modulation profile that is automatically used when a profile is not specifically assigned to an upstream. These default modulation profiles (321 and 381) cannot be deleted.

A new global modulation profile is introduced in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(33)SCC, which allows you to assign any modulation profile number to any DOCSIS mode.

Table 3 lists the valid modulation profile ranges according to the cable interface and modulation type:

 

Table 3 Allowable Ranges for Modulation Profiles

1 to 400 (default is 381)

Cisco uBR-MC88V

321 to 330 (default is 321)

1 to 400 (default is 381)

Global Modulation Profile

Cisco IOS Release 12.2(33)SCC introduces the global modulation profile scheme, which allows you to assign any modulation profile number to any DOCSIS mode up to 400. It eliminates the number space restriction and increases the number of modulation profiles that can be created per DOCSIS mode. Currently, there is a restriction of 10 modulation profiles per DOCSIS mode.

In global modulation profile scheme, you can assign any number between 1 to 400 to any modulation profiles. The global modulation profile mode allows you to create and configure DOCSIS 3.0 channel type 4SR (scdma-d3). When the DOCSIS mode of an upstream is changed into scdma-d3, it is initially assigned to the system created default modulation profile as shown in Table 3 .


Note Though you can assign any number between 1 to 400 to any modulation profile, the default modulation profile number assigned to an upstream channel for a given channel type will remain the same. That is, modulation profile numbers 21, 121, 221, 321, and 381 will be applicable for TDMA, mixed, A-TDMA, S-CDMA, and DOCSIS 3.0 S-CDMA channel types.


All the existing and previously defined modulation profiles are converted to the new format. However, all the newly created modulation profiles, which are outside of the legacy number space range, will be lost when you revert to the legacy modulation profile.

The new global modulation profile scheme is enabled using the cable modulation-profile global-scheme command. For more details on this command, refer to the Cisco IOS CMTS Cable Command Reference .

Benefits

The S-CDMA feature provides the following benefits:

  • Provides full compatibility with DOCSIS 2.0 and DOCSIS 3.0 cable modems (CMs) and cable modem termination systems (CMTS).
  • Increases protection against electronic impairments that occur in cable systems, allowing for a more robust operating environment.
  • Supports S-CDMA ingress noise cancellation technology that provide more knobs for fine tuning.
  • Supports all existing upstream bonding capabilities for Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) and A-TDMA channels under S-CDMA.
  • Supports up to two logical channel combinations for the Cisco UBR-MC20X20V and Cisco uBR-MC8X8V cable interface line cards.
  • Supports the In-Service Software Upgrade (ISSU) feature.

Logical Channels

The concept of a logical channel refers to time-division multiplexing (TDM) of the same radio frequency (RF) spectrum allocated to one physical upstream port. All logical upstream channels defined within the physical upstream port share the same upstream RF spectrum or the bandwidth. The MAC-scheduler is responsible for managing how that common bandwidth is shared or distributed.

Using the Logical Channel Support feature, cable system operators can segment and time-multiplex one spectrum for supporting the legacy modems, near and far modems, and newer DOCSIS 3.0 modems with various service levels.

The Logical Channel Support feature provides the following benefits to cable service providers and their partners and customers:

  • Switchovers between the same cable interface line cards at the logical channel level, as part of high availability (HA). For example, switchover from Cisco uBR10-MC5X20H line card to Cisco uBR10-MC5X20H line card is supported.
  • Support for the In-Service Software Upgrade (ISSU) feature.

Each logical channel has its own Upstream Channel ID, upstream channel descriptor (UCD) messages, and Mini-slot Allocation Packet (MAP) messages. The logical channels on their own must satisfy the ranging and UCD change requirements that are imposed on a legacy standalone upstream channel.

The Cisco uBR10-MC5X20H and Cisco UBR-MC20X20V cable interface line cards support two logical channel combinations per physical port.

When two logical channels are configured through the cable upstream max-logical-chans command, both logical channels are mapped to the same physical port specified and the physical upstream bandwidth is shared between the two logical channels. However, from the cable modem perspective, each logical channel appears as an independent upstream channel.

When multiple logical channels are configured, the upstream-related commands are categorized into physical port level and logical channel level groups. Logical channel level commands use the format of cable upstream n m, where n denotes the physical port number, and m denotes the logical channel index number.

For more details on the cable upstream max-logical-chans command, refer to the Cisco IOS CMTS Cable Command Reference .

Spectrum Management on Logical Channels

Spectrum management allows you to prevent long-term service interruptions caused by upstream noise events in the cable plant. Spectrum management is also used for fault management and troubleshooting the cable network.

The Logical Channel Support feature supports all the basic spectrum management features. Some spectrum management features operate on the physical port level while others operate at the logical channel level.

The spectrum group assignment feature operates at the physical port level, and the Dynamic Upstream Modulation feature using Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) operates at the logical channel level.

For more information on spectrum management, refer to the Spectrum Management and Advanced Spectrum Management for the Cisco CMTS Routers document at the following location: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/cable/configuration/guide/cmts_spctrm_mgt.html

Load Balancing on Logical Channels

The Load Balancing (LB) feature allows cable system operators to distribute cable modems across RF downstream and upstream channels on the same cable interface line card, or across multiple cable interface line cards in some circumstances. Load balancing maximizes bandwidth and usage of the cable plant.

Load balancing is supported on logical channels using a two-tiered approach—the first level uses the traditional load balancing to move modems between the physical channels, and the second level moves modems amongst the logical channels.

The first level of load balancing (known as Cisco LB implementation) moves the modems amongst the physical upstream channels, identified in the load balancing group. It uses the aggregate upstream channel utilization statistics of a physical channel, including that of all logical channels, to perform load balancing.

The second level of load balancing moves modems among the logical channels defined within a physical channel (no outside moves). It is referred to as “per CM spectrum management” as it is strictly based on the physical channel parameters or conditions, or the physical layer capabilities of the CM.

For more information on the LB feature, refer to the Load Balancing and Dynamic Channel Change on the Cisco CMTS Routers document at the following location: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/cable/configuration/guide/ubr_load-bal_dcc.html

How to Configure S-CDMA and Logical Channel Support

This section describes the following tasks that are required to implement S-CDMA and Logical Channel Support:

Creating Modulation Profiles

This section describes how to create modulation profiles for the different modes of DOCSIS operations, using the preconfigured modulation profile options.


Note You can also create custom modulation profiles with the cable modulation-profile command by configuring the values for the individual burst parameters. These parameters, however, should not be modified unless you are thoroughly familiar with how changing each parameter affects the DOCSIS MAC layer. We recommend using the preconfigured default modulation profiles for most cable plants.

Assigning DOCSIS 3.0 S-CDMA Modulation Profiles

The following sample configuration shows DOCSIS 3.0 S-CDMA modulation profiles being assigned to the upstreams on two cable interfaces. The default DOCSIS 3.0 S-CDMA modulation profile (profile 381) is assigned to the upstreams on cable interface 7/1/0, and custom modulation profile 382 is assigned to the upstreams on cable interface 7/1/1.
