DOCSIS 3_1 Boot Camp

  In partnership with

CableLabs
The SCTE/ISBE DOCSIS 3.1 Boot Camp is the first advanced training of its kind to give engineers, NOC and headend/hub personnel and designers the knowledge and practical skills to immediately deploy DOCSIS 3.1.

Our Boot Camp program was developed in partnership with CabeLabs®, uses the latest education methods and modalities to deliver the training effectively, and comes in bite-size chunks to maximize your learning potential. The course will equip you to increase the capacity of your company’s network, enabling it to deliver next-generation services.


HERE'S HOW IT WORKS:


1. WE GET YOU READY.
In the first section of the Boot Camp, we offer a primer on DOCSIS 3.1 and the fundamentals of DOCSIS 3.1 downstream operation. Then participants complete a pre-test that assesses their existing knowledge to ensure they’re ready to move on to the classroom portion of the training.

If the pre-test determines the participant needs more preparation for the classroom, they are offered e-learning courses to give them a background on the PHY layer, PHY multiplexing and multiple access technology, MAC data links and cable modem initialization. 

 

2. CLASS IS IN SESSION.
The second portion of the DOCSIS 3.1 Boot Camp consists of the 3-day classroom session covering the following topics:
  • DOCSIS 3.1 initialization procedure
  • The end-to-end process with respect to DOCSIS 3.1
  • New frequency plan enhancements
  • Next code word pointers (NCP) and changes with respect to the MAC domain
  • Profiles, ranging and probing
  • OFDM in action
  • PHY/OFDM plant testing
  • Spectrum analyzers
  • OFDM generators from test equipment vendors
  • Demonstration of OFDM testing
  • DOCSIS 3.1 installation
  • DOCSIS 3.1 deployment and proactive network maintenance approaches
  • CMTS configuration for different vendor platforms
  • Troubleshooting network and plant issues using new DOCSIS 3.1 tools
  • Monitoring and testing approaches

3. THE LEARNING DOESN'T STOP THERE.
In the third phase of the DOCSIS 3.1 Boot Camp, we provide participants with follow-up activities, digital games and further educational content to help reinforce and solidify their knowledge. Key elements include:

  • Data input/command examples
  • Implementation and troubleshooting tips
  • Opportunities to follow up with the course presenters in threaded discussions and webinars
