This standard is part of the DOCSIS® family of specifications. In particular, this standard is part of a series of standards that define the fifth generation of high-speed data-over-cable systems, DOCSIS 3.1. This standard was developed for the benefit of the cable industry, and includes contributions by operators and vendors from North America, Europe, and other regions.
This document defines the requirements necessary for the Configuration, Fault Management, and Performance Management of the Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS) and the Converged Cable Access Platform (CCAP) system. The intent of this standard is to define a common, cross-vendor set of functionality for the configuration and management of CMTSs and CCAPs.
This standard defines a standard configuration object model for the configuration of the CCAP. This standard also defines the SNMP Management requirements for a CCAP. These SNMP requirements include both protocol conformance and management object definitions, based largely upon existing industry standard management objects found in DOCSIS CMTSs and Universal EQAMs. In addition, this standard defines the standard Event Messaging requirements of a CCAP system.
