This course introduces learners to E6000 CER hardware and the new Hybrid Chassis Mode configuration. Hybrid Chassis Mode provides the opportunity to simultaneously support an Integrated Converged Cable Access Platform (I-CCAP) and a Converged Cable Access Platform Core (CCAP Core) for Remote PHY processing. The course also discusses E6000 CER legacy Generation 1 and Generation 2 hardware (UCAM-2, DCAM-2/DPIC-2, RSM-2/RPIC-2Q) that enhances capacity and density of the E6000 CER and includes overviews of upstream and downstream DOCSIS 3.1 OFDMA and OFDM capabilities.
Topics include how the E6000 CER functions in
the network, descriptions of front/back chassis modules, the Fan Tray II,
Hybrid Chassis Mode operational considerations, and new cost-saving,
energy-efficient hardware modules designed specifically for CCAP Core
Are you already
familiar with the E6000 CER?
An assessment quiz before the first lesson gives you the
opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge. If you pass, you are directed to the
second lesson where you will learn about the new features contained in Release
As part of the E6D201 E6000 CER Operations curriculum, this course
is delivered to students upon registration. This course is also available for
the end of the course, the student will be able to:
- Identify and describe hardware components and their
- Hybrid Chassis Mode operational considerations.
- Recognize the differences of the Generation 1 (Gen
1) and Generation 2 (Gen 2) components and discover the value of Gen 2
- Understand the benefits of
DOCSIS 3.1 channels on the upstream and downstream.
Basic Understanding of CATV systems, RF Plant Fundamentals, and Data Networking
