|Publication Date:||1 August 2008|
This Recommendation defines the Cable-specific DHCP option codes for DHCPv4 and DHCPv6 including the DHCPv6 Vendor-specific Information Options.
The scope of this version of this Recommendation includes:
• DHCPv4 protocol fields authoritatively assigned by CableLabs that are mandated for product implementation in eDOCSIS, DOCSIS, IPCable2Home, IPCablecom, and OpenCable specifications.
• DHCPv6 protocol fields authoritatively assigned by CableLabs that are mandated for product implementation in DOCSIS specifications and in other specifications under development for IPCablecom.
The Cable DHCPv6 options are carried in the DHCPv6 Vendor-specific Information option (option code OPTION_VENDOR_OPTS, Section 22.17 of [RFC 3315]). The enterprise number for Cable Television Laboratories, Inc. to be used in the DHCPv6 Vendor-specific option, is 4491.
The actual product requirements related to the implementation of these DHCP options can be found in relevant ITU-T Recommendations and CableLabs Project specifications.
