Cable modem IPv4 and IPv6 eRouter specification
|Publication Date:||1 July 2007|
This Recommendation defines a core set of features that enables multiple subscriber devices to gain access to operator-provided high speed data service using DOCSIS. This core set of features allows for both IPv4 and IPv6 enabled devices to gain connectivity to the Internet.
The eRouter is specified as an embedded service/application functional entity (eSAFE) device as defined in [ITU-T J.126] that is implemented in conjunction with a DOCSIS Cable Modem device.
The core set of features defined in this Recommendation includes the ability to provision multiple CPE devices, a description of how to forward data to and from CPE devices and also the ability to forward IP multicast traffic to CPE devices.
NOTE - The structure and content of this Recommendation have been organized for ease of use by those familiar with the original source material; as such, the usual style of ITU-T recommendations has not been applied.
