Overview

The (Euro)DOCSIS technology is the leading technology for broadband IP access in cable networks. The (Euro)DOCSIS cable networks are also the basis for all next generation packet-based services like VoIP, video conferencing and other high-speed multimedia services. This Level 2 training is the continuation of Level 1, providing in-depth content and is example driven. This training is specially intended for people wanting to know more than only a view on how the fundamental concepts work. Using examples; configuring and monitoring of modem and CMTS are highlighted. This being very useful for troubleshooting and to be able to elaborate with vendors and operators on more advanced topics. The new technology, DOCSIS 3.1, is only slightly touched here. To get deeper knowledge of specific DOCSIS 3.1 mechanisms, the DOCSIS 3.1 Essentials and DOCSIS 3.1 trainings are foreseen.

What can you expect?

  • Achieve a comprehensive in-depth understanding of the concepts in the (Euro)DOCSIS specifications.
  • Understand the key issues of the technology and protocol with a focus on how to configure a CM and CMTS and get feedback.
  • Be able to troubleshoot and communicate issues to vendors and operators.
  • Benefit from the hands-on experience of the Excentis’ EuroDOCSIS certification testing.
  • After attending this course the attendee will be capable of understanding in-depth (Euro)DOCSIS concepts, configuration and monitoring.
