interface forwards bonded traffic in the downstream direction. A set of
downstream RF channels is configured under the Wideband interface. Each line
card will support up to 512 Wideband interfaces.
Although there is
no real relationship between these wideband interfaces and the 8 controllers
(ports), there is a convention of dividing the wideband interfaces into groups
The 512 wideband
interfaces are divided among the 8 controllers - 64 interfaces per controller.
You can create a
wideband-cable interface to define a downstream bonding group. A downstream
bonding group bonds together a set of downstream RF channels. It can only
contain the RF channels from the same line card.
between bonding groups and MAC Domains are automatically created. Associations
occur when a bonding group channel set is found to be a subset of a MAC Domain
Downstream Service Group (MD-DS-SG) within a MAC Domain. The automatic
associations will trigger the creation of an RCC that contains the bonding
group's channel set within the MAC Domain.
