Cisco's uBR-MC20x20V DOCSIS 3.0 Broadband Processing EngineCisco has identified Hong Kong Cable and Canal Digital Denmark as customers of new DOCSIS 3.0 CMTS line cards.

The new products include the Cisco uBR-MC20x20V DOCSIS 3.0 Broadband Processing Engine, a next-generation line card for the Cisco uBR10012 Universal Broadband Router, and the Cisco uBR-MC88V Broadband Processing Engine, a next-generation cable line card for the Cisco uBR7200 Series Universal Broadband Router.

DOCSIS 3.0 (D3) allows upstream channel bonding at speeds of 100 megabits per second or more and downstream channel bonding at speeds of 160 Mbps or more.

The new Cisco uBR-MC20x20V DOCSIS 3.0 Broadband Processing Engine provides 20 upstream and 20 downstream channels per module. It provides a quadruple increase in the integrated downstream channel capacity of the Cisco uBR10012 CMTS and upstream channel bonding.

Cisco is claiming the highest capacity in the industry with 160 downstream and 160 upstream per chassis, scaling all the way to 304 downstream when used with the Cisco DOCSIS 3.0 Wideband Shared Port Adapter (SPA).

Supports additional features of the DOCSIS 3.0 specification, including IPv6, multicast and synchronous code division multiple access (S-CDMA).

The new Cisco uBR-MC88V DOCSIS 3.0 Broadband Processing Engine adds eight upstream and eight downstream channels to the Cisco uBR7200 Series router platform, including the Cisco uBR7225 and Cisco VXR routers.
