Edge Resource Manager Interface for Modular Cable Modem Termination Systems

This document specifies interfaces that are used by Edge QAM devices (EQAMs), Edge Resource Managers (ERMs) and M-CMTS Cores within the context of a Modular Cable Modem Termination System (M‑CMTS). This is one of several specifications that together define and specify a complete M‑CMTS system (see Section 1.3). The basic architecture of a complete M‑CMTS system is shown in Figure 1–1.
