I know how difficult and time consuming it can be to track down information related to DOCSIS cable modem systems, so I decided to make this website. The purpose of this site is to help others to learn about DOCSIS cable modem systems and how to troubleshoot, manage and maintain them.
I've gathered information from the major CMTS vendors: ADC, Arris, Cisco and Motorola. For those of you responsible for cable plant maintanence, check out the DOCSIS seminars. These seminars cover important topics such as return path testing, BER, MER and FECs.
I hope you will find this site useful and I welcome any comments or suggestions that you may have. I'd also love to have any new documentation or links to other sites if you have them and would like to send them to me.
