Cisco cnBR Manager supports the Remote PHY Device (RPD) Cutover process through a GUI-based step-by-step wizard to move the RPDs from an existing cBR-8 system to a Cisco cnBR. RPD cutover assumes the Cisco cnBR is operational and the related service group (SG) configuration is ready before running this wizard. The wizard focuses on step-by-step instructions, preparation, and post verification including cable modem, CPE, and RF signal.
