Cisco 5x20U Broadband Processing Engine for the
Cisco uBR10012 Universal Broadband Router

The Cisco® 5x20U Broadband Processing Engine (BPE) for the Cisco uBR10012 Universal Broadband Router combines industry-leading port density, an advanced RF feature set, next-generation advanced time division multiple access (A-TDMA) capabilities, and Data Over Cable Service Interface Specifications (DOCSIS) and European DOCSIS (EuroDOCSIS) support—on a single line card (Figure 1). The line card also supports an extended DOCSIS upstream frequency range of 5 to 55 MHz and downstream support of 70 to 860 MHz for DOCSIS operations in Japan.

The Cisco 5x20U BPE addresses the expanding service and operational needs of multiple system operators (MSOs). An unmatched set of advanced features and a scalable architecture make the Cisco 5x20U BPE an ideal choice for cable operators facing the challenge of delivering carrier-class IP-based data, voice, and video services to a growing number of subscribers.

Product Overview

The Cisco 5x20U BPE is a cable interface line card for the Cisco uBR10012 that performs cable modem termination system (CMTS) functions, such as:

Physical layer (PHY) RF interface (upstream burst demodulation, downstream modulation, RF upconversion)

Media Access Control (MAC) processing (modem registration, transmission opportunity scheduling, Layer 2 quality of service [QoS])

On-board packet processing

Featuring a highly integrated and robust RF front end and the industry's most advanced processing engine for DOCSIS- and EuroDOCSIS-based networks, the Cisco 5x20U BPE enables high-performance, reliable, and secure bidirectional transmission of IP packets over the cable plant for data, voice, and video services. The card supports:

DOCSIS: 6 MHz National Television Systems Committee (NTSC) channel operation, using standard (STD), Harmonic Related Carrier (HRC) or Incremental Related Carrier (IRC) frequency plans conforming to EIA-S542 and ITU J.83 Annex B. The card supports downstream channels in the 88 to 860 MHz range, and upstream channels in the 5 to 42 MHz range.

EuroDOCSIS: 8 MHz Phase Alternating Line (PAL) and Systemme Electronique Couleur Avec Memoire (SECAM) channel plans conforming to the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) J.83 Annex A standard. The card supports a greater upstream spectrum range of 5 to 65 MHz and an increased downstream channel width of 8 MHz.

DOCSIS with extensions for Japan: 6 MHz Annex B extension support with a downstream extended frequency range of 70 to 860 MHz and an upstream extended frequency range of 5 to 55 MHz.

Table 1 describes the product's features and benefits.

Advanced RF Front End

The Cisco 5x20U BPE presents the industry's most advanced RF front-end design, combining the highest level of integration with enhanced RF robustness and performance. The innovative design, which uses leading PHY chips from multiple vendors, features five downstream modulators, five upconverters, and 20 upstream burst receivers on a single line card. It embeds the most advanced RF capabilities, such as direct sampling of the upstream channels and ingress noise cancellation and advanced equalization.

Superior MAC

The Cisco 5x20U BPE features dedicated MAC layer hardware for maximum performance in large-scale deployments. The Cisco 5x20U BPE MAC layer hardware enables scalability to thousands of cable modems, simultaneously providing hardware acceleration for sophisticated security features, such as DOCSIS 1.1 extensions to baseline privacy interface (BPI). It also provides hardware acceleration for functions such as concatenation, fragmentation, and payload header suppression (PHS)—necessary to deploy advanced data and voice services.
