CableLabs Serves Up DOCSIS Network Software

CableLabs is coming to market with a new software prototype designed to analyze DOCSIS network usage. The cable industry's R&D consortium plans to hold an open meeting early next month to introduce the software system to vendors and discuss terms and conditions for using the source code. The software analyzes DOCSIS network usage, based on information about the network traffic patterns of various applications and the configuration and performance of network elements. It also enables close usage monitoring of operating networks. CableLabs developed the prototype last year in conjunction with cable operators, who have expressed strong interest in using it to plan for DOCSIS upgrades and new service rollouts. Cable operators have urged CableLabs to make the source code available to the commercial sector for further development.
