DOCSIS 3.1 introduces a whole new range of possibilities for signing and co-signing images, as explained in a previous blog post . Getting the correct software version on each modem in the field can be an operational challenge. This blog post explains how the Excentis DOCSIS Signing Tool can help by co-signing software images.
The Excentis CodeSigner DOCSIS® Signing Tool is a command line tool for signing and co-signing Cable Modem software images. Operators and manufacturers use it to sign and co-sign both (Euro)DOCSIS 3.0 and DOCSIS 3.1 software images.
The Excentis CodeSigner DOCSIS® Signing Tool offers both Cable Modem vendors and operators the ability to sign and co-sign Cable Modem software images, both for real deployment and testing purposes.
From June 20th to 24th, Excentis hosted a successful DOCSIS 3.1 interoperability testing event.
DOCSIS 3.1 cable modems are expected to be backwards compatible. From the title of this post you will already expect this is not fully the case. Let’s go over some important topics to be aware of when using DOCSIS 3.1 cable modems on pre-DOCSIS 3.1 CMTSs!
I often get asked the question: “I’m having my HFC network upgraded for DOCSIS 3.1, what KPI’s (Key Performance Indicators) should I put in my contract?” My first reply typically is: “Who pays the bill?” I do know it's the operator who will be paying the bill, but as always in technology, the right answer depends on many factors. In this blog I will clarify how some of the factors play an important role.
As demonstrated during our interop event , Remote PHY Devices (RPD) are reaching maturity. Contrary to other MSO (operator) core equipment, an RPD may be installed in an untrusted part of the MSO’s network. This requires special attention from a security point of view. This blogpost explains how to update the RPD’s software in a secure way.
