GQI is a protocol
for the GQI LED to interface with the remote SRM.
For system using
discovery protocol, the D6 discovery protocol should be enabled to report the
QAM resources of the LED to the remote SRM.
An active flag
should be enabled on the LED to indicate that it is active. This flag indicates
that the connectivity with the SRM can be setup and the LED can start handling
GQI message exchange from the SRM.
You cannot edit or
remove the LED data when it is in the active mode. To do so, you must first
move the LED to inactive mode and then disconnect it from the SRM.
Due to the
limitations of the GQI protocol, GQI LED cannot have Virtual Carrier Groups
that span across multiple cable line cards (CLC).
In Cisco IOS-XE Release 16.5.1, only GQI version 2 is supported for all GQI LEDs.
The following data
is necessary to define a GQI LED:
IP address that the SRM uses to setup connectivity with the LED. The IP address
must be in the same subnet as configured in the VirtualPortGoup.
A unique MAC
address per LED. Using the chassis MAC address as a basis, increment the least
significant number to give a unique identifier (MAC address) for each LED. This
number should be unique with respect to the GQI server and does not really
relate to a true MAC address. Thus, the number is irrelevant, but needs to be

Virtual Carrier Group (VCG). For more information, see Video Virtual Carrier Group and Virtual Edge Input.

To configure the
session-based LEDs, complete the following procedure:
