This certification program focuses on the router component (the eRouter) embedded in a Cable Modem, or Cable Gateway (CG). This router part includes functionality for bridging and routing (IPv4 and IPv6), DHCP/SLAAC, IPv6 transitioning technologies (e.g., DS-Lite), Network address Translation, etc. Besides the routing component, a Cable Gateway always includes a Cable Modem component, and optionally a voice component (MTA/DVA), a Wi-Fi module, video computing with ("headed") or without ("headless") video outs, and some more.
