The Cisco uBR10012 router supports data and digitized voice connectivity over a bidirectional cable television and IP backbone network, using advanced quality of service (QoS) techniques to ensure that real-time traffic such as voice can be reliably delivered, while still transmitting other traffic on a best-effort basis. The Cisco uBR10012 router concentrates traffic from two-way DOCSIS-based cable modems and STBs that is transmitted over the coaxial cable television (CATV) network, and presents that traffic to local and remote Internet Protocol (IP) hosts over its high-speed network uplink interfaces.
The Cisco uBR10012 universal broadband router provides a high-end, high-performance, high-capacity Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS) solution. The Cisco uBR10012 router is an aggregation platform that places a new level of intelligence and performance at the edge of the network, enabling cable service providers to maximize their revenues by delivering more feature-rich services to their customers. The system can provide high-speed data, broadband entertainment, and IP telephony services to residential and commercial subscribers using cable modems or digital set-top boxes (STBs).
