Deliver More Services, Spend Less, and Increase Agility

Depending on your existing network architecture, network, and service plans, Cisco has a solution ideally suited for you.

Multigigabit Converged Services Platform

Cisco’s cBR-8 Converged Broadband Router is the industry's first Evolved CCAP that helps cable operators to compete in billboard data rates. Its multigigabit broadband services can offer revenue-generating Internet-of-Everything (IoE) services to subscribers at a lower TCO over the next five years.

Built to Last Through the Next Decade's Transitions

The cBR-8 is the first integrated CCAP product designed for DOCSIS 3.1. Our full-spectrum platform can converge: all services, including DOCSIS data services and MPEG video services, into a single chassis.

This all-service convergence functionality can reduce on-going OpEx for rack space and power at the service provider's headend, and meet the service group growth demand.

The cBR-8 is also designed to support distributed CCAP architecture (DCA) with Cisco Remote PHY technology. This can help cable providers increase service revenues with an increased number of service groups and more bits per Hertz for the network. It can also reduce OpEx by supporting one access network for both residential and business services.

Key Benefits

  • Transform the network and business into a more agile architecture for future cable innovation
  • Increase subscriber value with a resilient and highly secure platform
  • Significantly reduce TCO with a high-performance platform

Distributed CCAP Architecture with Remote PHY

Both the Cisco uBR10012 CMTS and Cisco cBR-8 CCAP are designed to support distributed CCAP architecture (DCA) with Remote PHY. This functionality helps cable providers to increase service revenues through an increase in the number of service groups and more bits per Hertz for the network. You can also reduce OpEx with one access network for both residential and business services.

DCA with Remote PHY is an architectural strategy that removes the PHY element from a product and places that PHY element in a separate access point that is interconnected with an IP network. Even simple metro Ethernet networks and Ethernet passive optical networks (EPONs) qualify because they use IP packets.

Remote PHY infers centralized software. The intelligence and complexity are contained in a central location that has more room and is more serviceable. The least amount of complexity is placed remotely.

Benefits of Distributed CCAP Architecture with CCAP and Remote PHY

  • Use your CCAP architecture and increase your network scalability
  • Support digital fiber deployment for deep fiber architecture
  • Reduce OpEx by centralizing software, intelligence, and complexity in a central location

The remote PHY solution extends scalability beyond the CCAP chassis. More importantly, it extends Ethernet deep into the node and provides a path to virtualization. It also increases service-group density and helps cable providers to implement a fiber-deep architecture while migrating to an all-IP infrastructure.
