DOCSIS 2.0 + IPv6 Cable Modem Standard

This document is an extension to the DOCSIS 2.0 family of standards, which define high-speed data-over-cable systems. For an overview of DOCSIS 2.0, refer to [RFIv2.0]. The [RFIv2.0] specification requires the CM to support IP version 4 for provisioning and management. This present document provides IPv6 provisioning and management functionality for DOCSIS 2.0 CMs, connected IPv6 eSAFEs, and external CPE devices. The term DOCSIS 2.0+IPv6 CM is used to represent such Cable Modems.
