  • The cable physical plant must be capable of supporting the higher-bandwidth DOCSIS 2.0 A-TDMA modulation profiles.
  • Cable modems must be DOCSIS-compliant. If cable modems go offline, or appear to be online but do not pass traffic when in the mixed TDMA/A-TDMA mode, upgrade the modem software to a DOCSIS-compliant version.
  • The following are required to support the DOCSIS 2.0 A-TDMA features:

Cable modems must be DOCSIS 2.0 capable.

The DOCSIS configuration file for a DOCSIS 2.0 cable modem must either omit the DOCSIS 2.0 Enable field (TLV 39), or it must set TLV 39 to 1 (enable). If you set TLV 39 to 0 (disable), a DOCSIS 2.0 CM uses the TDMA mode.

The upstream must be configured for either A-TDMA-only or mixed TDMA/A-TDMA mode. To use the 6.4 MHz channel width, the upstream must be configured for A-TDMA-only mode.

  • Complete a basic configuration of the Cisco uBR7246VXR or 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 WAN adapter to provide backbone connectivity.

  • Determine a channel plan for your Cisco uBR7246VXR or Cisco uBR10012 router and all of its cable interfaces.
  • Verify that your headend site includes all necessary servers to support DOCSIS and Internet connectivity, including DHCP, ToD, and TFTP servers.
  • The system clock on the Cisco uBR7246VXR or Cisco uBR10012 router should be set to a current date and time to ensure that system logs have the proper timestamp and to ensure that the BPI+ subsystem uses the correct timestamp for verifying cable modem digital certificates.

Restrictions for DOCSIS 2.0 A-TDMA Services

The DOCSIS 2.0 A-TDMA services feature has the following restrictions and limitations:

  • Does not support virtual channels, as described in DOCSIS 2.0 specification.
  • Does not support Synchronous Code Division Multiple Access (S-CDMA) channels.
  • Cisco IOS Release 12.2(15)CX, Release 12.2(15)BC2, and later releases support a maximum of 10 modulation profiles for each of the three DOCSIS modes (DOCSIS 1.x TDMA, mixed, and DOCSIS 2.0 A-TDMA), for a total maximum of 30 modulation profiles.
  • Advanced hardware-based spectrum management is not supported for DOCSIS 2.0 mixed-mode and A-TDMA upstreams. Advanced spectrum management features (such as guided frequency hopping, dynamic upstream modulation, and proactive CNR-based frequency hopping and channel width changes) can be configured only on DOCSIS and EuroDOCSIS 1.X upstreams. You cannot use these features on channels configured for mixed mode or DOCSIS 2.0 A-TDMA mode. Advanced hardware-based spectrum management for A-TDMA operations is scheduled to be supported in a future release of the Cisco IOS software.
  • 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.

Information About DOCSIS 2.0 A-TDMA services

This section describes the DOCSIS 2.0 A-TDMA services feature:

Feature Overview

DOCSIS 2.0 A-TDMA services improve the maximum upstream bandwidth on existing DOCSIS 1.0 and DOCSIS 1.1 cable networks by providing a number of advanced PHY capabilities that have been specified by the new DOCSIS 2.0 specifications. In Cisco IOS Release 12.2(15)BC2, DOCSIS 2.0 A-TDMA services are supported on the Cisco uBR-MC16U/X, Cisco uBR-MC28U/X, and Cisco uBR-MC5X20S/U Broadband Processing Engine (BPE) cable interface line cards.

DOCSIS 2.0 A-TDMA services incorporate the following advantages and improvements of DOCSIS 2.0 networks:

  • Builds on existing DOCSIS cable networks by providing full compatibility with existing DOCSIS 1.0 and DOCSIS 1.1 cable modems. (The registration response (REG-RSP) message contains the DOCSIS version number to identify each cable modem’s capabilities.)
  • Upstreams can be configured for three different modes to support different mixes of cable modems:

An upstream can be configured for TDMA mode to support only DOCSIS 1.0 and DOCSIS 1.1 cable modems.

An upstream can be configured for A-TDMA mode to support only DOCSIS 2.0 cable modems.

An upstream can be configured for a mixed, TDMA/A-TDMA mode, to support both DOCSIS 1.0/DOCSIS 1.1 and DOCSIS 2.0 cable modems on the same upstream.


Note DOCSIS 2.0 A-TDMA cable modems will not register on a TDMA upstream if an A-TDMA or mixed upstream exists in the same MAC domain, unless the CMTS explicitly switches the cable modem to another upstream using an Upstream Channel Change (UCC) message. DOCSIS 1.0 and DOCSIS 1.1 cable modems cannot register on an A-TDMA-only upstream.


  • A-TDMA mode defines new interval usage codes (IUC) of A-TDMA short data grants, long data grants, and Unsolicited Grant Service (UGS) grants (IUC 9, 10, and 11) to supplement the existing DOCSIS 1.1 IUC types.
  • Increases the maximum channel capacity for A-TDMA upstreams to 30 Mbps per 6 MHz channel.
  • A-TDMA and mixed modes of operation provide higher bandwidth on the upstream using new 32-QAM and 64-QAM modulation profiles, while retaining support for existing 16-QAM and QPSK modulation profiles. In addition, an 8-QAM modulation profile is supported for special applications.
  • Supports a minislot size of 1 tick for A-TDMA operations.
  • Increases channel widths to 6.4 MHz (5.12 Msymbol rate) for A-TDMA operations.
  • A-TDMA and mixed modes of operation provide a more robust operating environment with increased protection against ingress noise and other signal impairments, using a number of new features:

Uses to a symbol (T)-spaced adaptive equalizer structure to increase the equalizer tap size to 24 taps, compared to 8 taps in DOCSIS 1.x mode. This allows operation in the presence of more severe multipath and microreflections, and can accommodate operation near band edges where group delay could be a problem.

Supports new QPSK0 and QPSK1 preambles, which provide improved burst acquisition by performing simultaneous acquisition of carrier and timing lock, power estimates, equalizer training, and constellation phase lock. This allows shorter preambles, reducing implementation loss.

Increases the forward error correction (FEC) T-byte size to 16 bytes per Reed Solomon block (T=16) with programmable interleaving.


Note Cisco IOS Release 12.2(15)BC2 does not support the Synchronous Code Division Multiple Access (S-CDMA) modulation technique that is also specified in the DOCSIS 2.0 specification.


Modes of Operation

Depending on the configuration, the DOCSIS 2.0 A-TDMA Service feature supports either DOCSIS or Euro-DOCSIS operation:

  • DOCSIS cable networks are based on the ITU J.83 Annex B physical layer standard and Data-over-Cable Service Interface Specifications (DOCSIS, Annex B) specification, which use 6 MHz National Television Systems Committee (NTSC) channel plans. In this mode, the downstream uses a 6 MHz channel width in the 85 to 860 MHz frequency range, and the upstream supports multiple channel widths in the 5 to 42 MHz frequency range.

Cisco IOS Release 12.2(15)BC2 also supports an extended frequency range for DOCSIS cable networks, in which the upstream channel widths can range from 5 to 55 MHz.

  • EuroDOCSIS cable networks are based on the ITU J.112 Annex A physical layer standard and European DOCSIS (EuroDOCSIS, Annex A) specification, which use 8 MHz Phase Alternating Line (PAL) and Systeme Electronique Couleur Avec Memoire (SECAM) channel plans. In this mode, the downstream uses an 8 MHz channel width in the 85 to 860 MHz frequency range, and the upstream supports multiple channel widths in the 5 to 65 MHz frequency range.

Note The difference between DOCSIS and EuroDOCSIS is at the physical layer. To support a DOCSIS or EuroDOCSIS network requires the correct configuration of the DOCSIS 2.0 A-TDMA Service card, as well as upconverters, diplex filters, and other equipment that supports the network type.


When using Cisco IOS Release 12.2(15)BC2, the Cisco uBR-MC16U/X, Cisco uBR-MC28U/X, and Cisco uBR-MC5X20S/U cards support all DOCSIS 1.1-specified and all DOCSIS 2.0-specified A-TDMA radio frequency (RF) data rates, channel widths, and modulation schemes. Table 2 shows the maximum supported DOCSIS 1.1 data rates, and Table 3 shows the maximum supported DOCSIS 2.0 (A-TDMA-mode) data rates.

Modulation Profiles

To simplify the administration of A-TDMA and mixed TDMA/A-TDMA modulation profiles, the DOCSIS 2.0 A-TDMA Service 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 (1, 21, 41, 101, 121, 141, 201, 221, and 241, depending on the cable interface line cards that are installed) cannot be deleted.

The valid range for modulation profiles depends on the cable interface being used and the type of modulation profile being created. Table 4 lists the valid ranges according to cable interface and modulation type:

Benefits

The DOCSIS 2.0 A-TDMA Service feature provides the following benefits to cable service providers and their partners and customers:

  • Full compatibility with DOCSIS 1.0 and DOCSIS 1.1 cable modems (CMs) and cable modem termination systems (CMTS).
  • Additional channel capacity in the form of more digital bits of throughput capacity in the upstream path.
  • Increased protection against electronic impairments that occur in cable systems, allowing for a more robust operating environment.

  • n— Specifies the upstream port. Valid values start with 0 for the first upstream port on the cable interface line card.
  • profile— Specifies the modulation profile to be used on this upstream. The valid range for the profile parameter depends on the current DOCSIS mode:

If the upstream is configured for DOCSIS 1.0 and DOCSIS 1.1 mode, the valid range is 21 to 30 for the Cisco uBR-MC5X20S, and 41 to 50 for the Cisco uBR-MC16U/X and Cisco uBR-MC28U/X. The valid range is 1 to 10 for all other cards.
