R-PHY System Scaling Tools accurately simulate control plane interactions between virtual R-PHY devices, cable modems, service cores, and critical network services.
Virtual R-PHY devices support real-time,
bi-directional communication simultaneously
with multiple DOCSIS service cores over the GCP and L2TPv3 protocols. They seamlessly interact with critical network services such as NAD, DHCP, Time-of-Day and PTP servers.
They adhere to CableLabs, IEEE and IETF specifications, and have been validated with physical CCAP devices and vCMTS instances from leading vendors.
Simulates the control plane interaction between thousands of DOCSIS 3.1 and 4.0 cable modems and DOCSIS service cores, and network services such as DHCP, ToD, TFTP, and SNMP servers. This enables rapid and cost-effective validation of DOCSIS service core compatibility, operation and performance, and network policies such as IP address and bandwidth allocation.
Simultaneously, the need to procure, connect, power, maintain, and secure hundreds or thousands of physical cable modems can be significantly reduced.
Simulate difficult-to-replicate network events such as modem initialization storms following a network outage
