With release 5.2 is a fully redundant, carrier-class intelligent CMTS/edge router supporting (Euro)DOCSIS® 3.0 for nextgeneration Ultra-Broadband cable services. The BSR 64000 allows cable operators to cost-effectively and efficiently deploy Ultra-Broadband services in excess of 140 Mbps (DOCSIS) / 200 Mbps (EuroDOCSIS) with per-flow Quality of Service by implementing downstream channel bonding on existing BSR 64000 platforms.
The BSR 64000 provides cable operators with the highest level of investment protection by supporting a migration path to (Euro)DOCSIS 3.0 in support of new high-throughput residential and commercial services while leveraging installed BSR hardware. Motorola BSR64000 is a fully redundant platform designed to offer cable operators 99.999% system availability for subscriber IP voice, video, and data services.
The BSR 64000 release 5.2 supports the following modules:
- Supervisory Resource Module (SRM) providing system control and routing functionality. SRM4 and SRM3 are supported.
- TX32 Decoupled Downstream Module offering 32 downstream channels across 8 RF ports
- 2:8 CMTS Module providing integrated 2D and 8U RF channels • Ether-Flex High-speed Interface Module (HSIM4) offering dual GbE and eight 10/100 Ethernet interfaces, as well as single port HSIM2 GbE modules
- Standby TX32, 2:8, and SRM modules providing full redundant operation
- Refer to the Release 5.2 SRN (Software Release Notice) for actual module revision levels supported High Availability — TX32 Redundancy CMTS redundancy is increasingly vital as competition among broadband service providers grows and service quality becomes a key differentiator. With release 5.2, the BSR 64000 introduces support for TX32 RF Redundancy to provide hit-less switch-over in the event of a hardware or software issue, while fully protecting subscriber IP voice, video, and data traffic.
-This includes the availability of the TX32 Standby and 3-slot rear I/O modules, which enable full chassis redundancy spanning CMTS, SRM, and HSIM modules. The TX32 3-slot rear I/O module provides the RF port interfaces for up to 2 primary TX32 modules, while integrating the RF switch capability for the TX32 Standby module. These modules, along with release 5.2, enable full TX32 redundancy without an external RF switch or additional cabling.
