17. Safety I nformation for ARRIS Touchstone Products
ARRIS telephony modems and cable modems comply with the applicable requirements for
performance, construction, labeling, and information when used as outlined in this Section 17:
2003-2010 ARRIS Group, Inc.
All rights reserved.
17.1 Caution: Only a professional installer may connect the telephony modem to the homes
existing telephone wiring. Physical connections to the previous telephone provider must be
removed and the wiring must be checked; there must not be any voltages. Cancellation of tele-
phone service is not sufficient to ensure there is no power to the telephony modem. Failure to
do so may result in loss of service and/or permanent damage to the telephony modem.
17.2 Do not use the product near water (e.g., wet basement, bathtub, sink or near a swimming
pool), to avoid risk of electrocution.
17.3 Avoid using and/or connecting the equipment during an electrical storm, to avoid risk of
electrocution.
17.4 Do not locate the product within 6 feet (2 m) of a flame or ignition source, to avoid
damage or injury from battery explosion, or heat damage.
17.5 Use only the power supply and/or power cord included with the Product. Install the
Product near and easily accessible to the power outlet. Ground the RF drop cables shield at the
building/residence either close to the point of entrance or at the point of attachment. Grounding
as close as practical to the building/residence AC ground is required to minimize grounding con-
nector length and thereby limit the potential voltage differences between the cable TV coaxial
cable and other grounding system. Refer to the individual countrys National Electric Code for
further details.
17.6 In areas of high AC power surge events or poor AC power grounding situations and areas
prone to lightning strikes additional AC power surge protection may be required on the AC, RF,
Ethernet, USB and phone lines.
17.7 If connecting the telephony modem or cable modem to a local computer through the
Ethernet or USB cable the computer must be properly grounded to the building/residence AC
ground network. All plug-in cards within the computer must be properly installed and grounded
to the computer frame per the manufacturers specifications.

NOTE
When setting a center frequency below 91MHz, the following message
appears: Frequencies below 91MHz may impair RF signal quality. This
refers to the 2nd order harmonic distortion. 2nd harmonics appear at two
times the carrier frequency. For example, if the carrier frequency is
90MHz, then the 2nd harmonic would appear at 180MHz. 2nd harmonics
below 91MHz can measure up to 3dB higher than the DRFI specification
of -63dBc. The signal quality of the output carrier itself is not affected.

Product Overview
The D5 UEQ is a two rack unit (RU), high-density Edge QAM. Its modular,
hot-swappable design supports a flexible system with built in compatibility,
redundancy and scalability for current and next generation services. This
overview describes the system interactions that comprise a basic D5 UEQ
Edge QAM.

3 Product Overview
Transport Stream Processing
The D5 UEQ processes MPEG over IP streams received over Gigabit
Ethernet (GigE) connections. From these GigE connections, the D5 UEQ
extracts MPEG Transport Streams (TS) that are subsequently multiplexed
onto individual QAM channels and upconverted to desired RF frequencies
for delivery.
Figure 3-1: D5 UEQ Logical Overview
I nternal Operations
The D5 UEQ provides flexible control interfaces, via the Command Line
Interface (CLI), the Web Manager, and the Simple Network Management
Protocol (SNMP). These interfaces support configuration and reporting of
all aspects of the D5 UEQ.
The CLI is the primary user interface. It can be accessed via the CLI port
or Telnet. The Web Manager and SNMP are secondary user interfaces.
Although not all CLI commands are duplicated in the Web Manager, most
operations can be performed.

OAM&P The WAN module provides OAM&P (Operations, Administration, Mainte-
nance and Provisions) functions for chassis management, environment
controls, Ethernet connectivity, MPEG, and QAM multiplexing functionality.
Module I dentification
The D5 UEQ utilizes the Chassis Monitor Module (MON) to retrieve factory
configured information from modules installed within the chassis. This
information is gathered via the EEPROM on a per module basis for identi-
fication. The EEPROM information includes:
Product Code - Name for a type of card (e.g. WAN module D5_4G2F)
Product Version - Version for a type of card (e.g. AA)
Serial Number - Unique code for a specific card (of the chassis, for the
Midplane EEPROM)
Manufacturing Date - Date indicating start of warranty period
Assembly Code - Engineering code uniquely identifying a specific
assembly, example ARCT00012
Assembly Revision Code - Engineering code that uniquely identifies a
specific version of an assembly, example = A.
Environment Monitoring
Environment monitoring (e.g. power, thermals, fan rotation) is handled by
the environment manager and logging system. The MON maintains envi-
ronment control and signals out-of-tolerance information internally and
then processes these events and updates appropriate SNMP MIB and
Syslog information. The events are also reported via Webserver to the
Application Manager status screens.
Some default limits and parameters may be adjusted via the CLI or Appli-
cation Manager.
Image Management - Compact Flash
The compact flash (CF) is the only bulk storage drive in the D5 UEQ. It
contains software images for all the available modules within the D5 UEQ.
It also contains the operating system and configuration files from which
the D5 UEQ boots. The CF is the location of non-volatile (NV) event infor-
mation.
At startup, the events in the NV log are read and then stored in the volatile
log (RAM on the WAN). If the MON is removed, the compact flash is not
accessible and events will no longer be saved to the NV log.

Edge QAM
Video/ UDP/ MPEG Management
The D5 UEQ system terminates MPEG video streams ingested over UDP IP
GigE ports. The D5 UEQ must associate UDP ports to QAM channels for
coherent mapping of MPEG traffic to QAM/RF outputs.
Most video servers reply on a static session resource philosophy that
provides the appropriate IP address and UDP port numbers to get a video
source to its final destination. In this model, the Session Resource
Manager (SRM) is configured manually without any protocols that nego-
tiate between the SRM and the Edge QAM devices. To simplify this config-
uration, blocks of UDP port numbers are associated (mapped) to the QAM
channels of the D5 UEQ.
Each QAM channel has a set of 127 default UDP ports mapped to them and
are directed to specific slots within the D5 UEQ (for more information, see
Chapter 8, Video on Demand).
QAM/ RF Management
Setting the frequency of the RF connector sets the center frequency of the
lowest QAM channel and the other QAM channels move accordingly. The
following diagram illustrates the frequencies where the QAM channels will
appear.
Dual-Port QAM Module (DPM
4DX2) in Quad Mode
The standard offsets are +6, +12 and +18MHz for Annex B or Annex C
and +8, +16, +24MHz for Annex A. These may be modified using the
channel-width and video symbol-rate commands

Demodulator Support The Demodulator support added in release 3.0.1 allows the QPM module
to provide RF related performance statistics to the user, either through the
CLI, Web Manager or Application Manager.
There is a single demodulator circuit per QPM module, serving the full set
of 32 possible QAM channels on the module. The demodulator works in
conjunction with a silicon tuner and an RF switch that allows a single input
from the 4 unique RF outputs to be tuned and demodulated.
The demodulator allows for the monitoring of Bit Error Rate (BER), Signal
to Noise Ratio (SNR) and counts Forward Error Correction (FEC) informa-
tion. The monitoring/counting is performed on a periodic basis, where
configured QAM channels on any of the 4 RF ports can be monitored for a
maximum of 60 seconds before moving to the next QAM channel. Control
of the monitoring is enabled on a per QAM channel or per RF port basis,
and QAM channels can be included or excluded.
The demodulator also allows for the recovery of the QAM channel
MPEG2TS stream from the RF output. This MPEG2TS stream may be
snooped in the same way as the existing video snoop qam x/y.z post-
mux command operates, replacing post-mux with post-rf. The peri-
odic scanning of the QAM channels is halted when a post-rf snoop is
running on a specific QAM channel in the QPM.

To enable the demodulator function, the video monitoring rf-
channel scan command must be entered at the RF port or QAM channel
level. When executed at RF Port level, all active QAM channels are included
in the periodic scanning. To enable the demodulator for the entire module,
the video monitoring rf-signal scan command must be config-
ured on all four QPM RF ports.
To exclude a QAM channel from the scanning, use the [no] format of the
command.
The scanning algorithm demodulates every included QAM channel for a
period of 1 second before moving to the next available QAM channel. To
allow the demodulator to collect more statistics per QAM channel, the
delay parameter, for the video monitoring rf-signal command can be
used to extend the length of time, in milliseconds, the demodulator should
dwell on the QAM channel before proceeding to the next QAM channel.
The delay interval is called the scan window, and is used to collect the
post-FEC BER measurement. The maximum interval is 60000 milliseconds
(60 seconds). It is also possible to calculate the pre-FEC BER measurement
using the unerrored/corrected/uncorrected values retrieved from the
demodulated QAM RF signal.
In the case of monitoring a single QAM channel, it is possible to remove
all but one video monitoring rf-signal scan command. This causes the
scanning to remain on the same QAM channel, allowing the uninterrupted
collection of FEC codewords and allows for a longer BER measurement.
The FEC codeword related statistics are aggregating for the entire time the
demodulator is scanning QAM channels. To reset the codeword counts, the
QAM channel must be disabled from the demodulator and reenabled.
The D5 UEQ also provides an extension to the show interfaces qam X/Y.Z
command to monitor the results of the demodulated statistics gathering.
The following example shows how the output of this command might look:

GigE Link Trunking Redundancy
The D5 UEQ has several layers of internal redundancy and fault tolerance
including GigE link trunking redundancy.
Trunking allows multiple Ethernet links to be combined together to form a
single logical link, with a total bandwidth equivalent to the aggregate of all
the physical Ethernet links. In the case of the D5 UEQ, those logical links
are the GigE Small Form Factor Pluggable cards (SFPs). The single logical
GigE link of SFPs is treated as one interface and is normally configured with
a single IP address. This can then be used to perform loopback testing on
the interface. Any traffic sent by the sender to the destination IP address
is automatically load balanced over all of the physical SFPs in the trunk.
ARRI S D5 Universal Edge QAM
Release 3.0.1 ARRIS PROPRIETARY All Rights Reserved 3-13
2003-2010 ARRIS Group, Inc.
Redundancy is achieved by redirection of ingested traffic from a failed SFP
to one that is configured to support a failure. If the failure is resolved, the
D5 UEQ software will allow the reactivated SFP to work within the trunking
configuration again.
The D5 UEQ can combine up to four GigE SFP ports into a trunk to create
a single logical link capable of delivering 2.6 Gbps to the D5 UEQ.
GigE MAC Redundancy
GigabitEthernet MAC Redundancy is a feature developed on the D5 UEQ
to support configuring an unused gigabitEthernet port as a backup for
active gigabitEthernet ports. In Release 3.0.1, this feature further exploits
the use of one of the fastEthernet ports, 0/1, being configured as a redun-
dant backup port to support all four active gigabitEthernet SFP ports. The
MAC Redundancy feature is transparent to the services running on the D5
UEQ, meaning that it can be applied to VOD, SDV (RPC/NGOD), BCAST,
and DOCSIS/DEPI applications. Each of the four gigabitEthernet ports on
the D5 UEQ have full Ethernet MAC functionality. When a gigabitEthernet
port is used as a spare, it must be connected to the same switch/vlan as
the gigabitEthernet ports it is sparing for. The MAC redundancy feature is
configured through the use of the ip bundle gigabitethernet x/y
command entered on any active gigabitEthernet port. For detailed infor-
mation, please refer to the Expanded Operation in Release 3.0.1 section
on page 13-17.
IGMP Client v1, v2, v3
In certain topologies, it is not necessary to run a multicast routing protocol
because the D5 UEQ can be utilized to learn group membership informa-
tion and forward streams based upon that information. The Internet Group
Management Protocol (IGMP) is used for this purpose.
Multicast video traffic received by the D5 UEQ uses the same UDP port
mapping rules as unicast video traffic. These forwarding rules dictate
which QAM channels will receive video stream(s). Therefore, the same
multicast group address can be reused for multiple video streams once a
unique UDP destination port is used in each stream.
IGMP can be employed to the network architecture either by directly
connecting the D5 UEQ to a video server or remotely connecting via a
switch, series of switches, routers, or a combination thereof.
The IGMP client operates on either a gigabit subinterface or a loopback
subinterface that is a member of a trunk. It does not operate on any fast
Ethernet ports. IGMP interfaces are initiated when a port is configured in
a video mode, this includes when a loopback is added to a trunk. IGMP
3-14 ARRIS PROPRIETARY All Rights Reserved J uly 22, 2010

3 Product Overview
interfaces are removed when a port is configured in a non video mode, this
includes when a loopback is removed from a trunk. There are a maximum
of 253 groups that can be configured on the D5 UEQ. A group can only be
configured against a single subinterface.
When a group is statically configured, the WANs switch is programmed to
allow packets destined to the multicast address to be passed whether
IGMP is enabled or disabled on that subinterface.
Digital Video Broadcasting
The D5 UEQ provides the normal DVB Broadcast table processing that
includes program and Packet Identifier (PID) filtering, remapping of PIDs
and Single Program Transport Stream (SPTS) multiplexing. It also
supports all the normal DVB SI (Service Information) tables. The ARRIS D5
Application Manager also provides the ability to create and inject Program
Specific Information (P)SI table via the DVB Program Specific Information
Generator (P)SIG interfaces. Some additional functions the D5 UEQ
provides:
Support for DVB-SI tables not just MPEG (P)SI
Controls automatic (P)SI table generation
Deterministic use of PIDs
Support of DVB-SimulCrypt pre-scrambled content
Support of DVB-SimulCrypt without the EIS<>SCS interface
Supports scrambling of multiple programs with one ECM stream
GUI interface (ARRIS D5 Web Manager) for editing SI tables (refer-
ence Application Manager)

Configuration simplicity
Content Protection
The D5 UEQ employs standards-based digital TV solutions and works
closely with leading conditional access system (CAS) vendors to ensure
that content is securely distributed. The D5 UEQs SimulCrypt System solu-
tion is a simple, easy-to-manage, powerful implementation of today's DVB
encryption standards. It gives broadcasters significantly more flexibility in
delivering reliable inter-operability between complex, interrelated systems,
including set-top boxes (STBs), middleware, scheduling applications, CAS,
and compression equipment.
ARRI S D5 Universal Edge QAM
Release 3.0.1 ARRIS PROPRIETARY All Rights Reserved 3-15
2003-2010 ARRIS Group, Inc.
Privacy Mode
The application of Privacy-Mode technology enables the D5 UEQ device to
seamlessly integrate with more conditional access systems and set-top
boxes in addition to its existing DVB SimulCrypt support. The D5 UEQs
session- and tier-based encryption capability provides greater flexibility
than the common practice of pre-encrypting VOD content as well as
reducing the overall complexity, cost of implementing and managing a
Video on Demand service.
The Privacy Mode deliverable for the D5 UEQ covers a number of different
elements. The D5 UEQ is equipped with the correct scrambling technology
to enable incoming streams to be encrypted in real-time with the correct
CAS parameters. The D5 UEQ will dynamically retrieve the necessary
secure CAS information to support this real time scrambling. It does this
through a separate proxy application that is supplied as part of the D5
Application Manager platform. In a similar way to DVB SimulCrypt condi-
tional access systems, multiple D5 UEQs are expected to communicate via
the proxy application for this secure CAS information. The proxy applica-
tion is a secure application that is protected from unauthorized use and
must be unlocked before it can be used. It off loads any direct D5 UEQ
communication to the Privacy Mode ERS element and as such acts as the
central authority that enables Privacy Mode to operate on D5 UEQs.
DVB SimulCrypt
The Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) SimulCrypt standard is the dominant
Conditional Access (CAS) standard deployed by European cable operators.
Its open nature allows various headend devices to work together
seamlessly to provide secure delivery of broadcast and event content to
cable customers.
The DVB SimulCrypt specification relies on a DVB common scrambling
algorithm for the encryption and decryption of MPEG information. A secure
system of Electronic Keys, Control Words (CW), Subscriber Management
Systems (SMS), Entitlement Control Messages (ECM), Entitlement
Management Messages (EMM) and external event scheduling systems are
used to protect content in the Multiple Service Operator (MSO) network.
The D5 UEQs SimulCrypt solution allows an Operator to support multiple
CAS solutions which gives them greater freedom and flexibility in the
implementation of content protection within their networks. It supports
the handling of vendor-specific pre-encrypted content and stream encryp-
tion by adding descriptor pointers and Program Identifiers (PIDS) into D5
UEQ Program Map Tables (PMT), Program Association Tables (PAT), and
Network Information Tables (NIT). The D5 UEQ accepts scrambling
session information, interfaces with ECM generators, creates, then
supplies CWs, and receives prepared ECM messages. It also ensures
3-16 ARRIS PROPRIETARY All Rights Reserved J uly 22, 2010

3 Product Overview
synchronization of CWs and transmission time, for ECMs, and interfaces
with SMS systems so that it can forward EMM messages and Private Data
messages to subscriber STBs.
An example of this scrambling session begins when a signal is sent to the
D5 UEQ Edge QAM before the MPEG content is transmitted. This allows the
D5 UEQ to setup the necessary sessions needed to send CWs in exchange
for ECMs. The D5 UEQ schedules the transmission of ECMs with respect to
the receipt of MPEG content. It also coordinates timing for scrambling
MPEG content. The subscribers set top box (STB) then receives the ECMs
and uses service keys (SK) to descramble them and recover CWs. The
subscribers STB uses the CWs to then descramble the received MPEG
content.
DVB PSI/ SI Processing
The D5 UEQ PSI/SI processing ensures the integrity of video streams
received and forwarded to output QAM channels. PSI information
contained within PAT and PMT tables gets dynamically updated as a result
of SPTS multiplexing to output QAMs. Automatic program numbering for
received SPTS streams can be used, with the resultant PAT and PMTs
updated with the new numbering. PID filtering and remapping also results
in changes to these PSI tables. The D5 UEQ also creates CAT tables as
required for any EMMs that may be added to an output multiplex and
updates descriptors within PMT tables for any ECMs that may be present.
DVB SI information is also handled by the D5 UEQ, from updating of NIT
tables, to the handling of external configured SI information provisioned
on the D5 UEQ using the (P)SIG SimulCrypt interface from the D5 Appli-
cation Manager PSI/SI generator. The D5 UEQ also supports importing
Teleste CatVisor files for provisioning of PSI/SI information. The D5 UEQ
also supports the insertion of DVB SI information presented to it from an
Ortikon SI generator using a dedicated MPEG-2 TS stream; all partial SI
information is replaced with the dedicated received SI stream.

Blanking Plates
Blanking plates serve three important functions. They prevent exposure to
hazardous voltages and currents inside the chassis; they inhibit electro-
magnetic interference (EMI) that might disrupt other equipment; and they
direct the flow of cooling air through the chassis.
CAUTI ON
It is critical that all blanking plates remain installed where there are no
modules so that air flow will circulate correctly.

The fan tray is accessible after removing the front panel. Air vents are
located on the left and right sides of the chassis. It is critical that these
vents remain unobstructed after the chassis is mounted so the D5 UEQ
does not overheat.
D5 UEQ Airflow
The D5 UEQ operates with side-to-side cooling. Fans located on the left of
the unit (from the front fascia perspective) exhaust hot air from the D5
UEQ, pulling cool air from the right hand side of the unit. Markings on the
D5 UEQ indicate the direction of air flow.
Figure 4-6: D5 UEQ Airflow direction
The D5 UEQ requires side to side airflow of greater than 200 cubic-feet-
per-minute (CFM) aggregate, when measured in a cross-section along its
side profile. Airflow is then channeled appropriately at higher speed
through PSUs and line cards through the D5 UEQs integral fans.
Air Re-circulation Re-circulating air is a consideration for the installation of all equipment
whether it employs side-to-side or front-to-back cooling. Re-circulating air
from an equipments air exhaust to the air intake causes the equipment to

experience effective ambient temperatures elevated above those which it
would otherwise experience. This may lead to reduced MTBF for the equip-
ment if the resulting operating temperature of the equipment is higher
than normal. It may also limit the amount of equipment that can be
installed within a rack. Refer to Racking Recommendations on page 6-4 for
various racking configurations and recommendations.
Power Converter Module (PMOD)
The Power Converter Module (PMOD) generates power rails required by
the QAM module.
The D5 UEQ can support two PMODs running simultaneously in a load-
sharing configuration similar to the main PSUs. Either PMOD can supply
sufficient power for the entire chassis, though the lower unit must be in
place to provide power and monitoring signals to the fans.
Fan Converter Module (FMOD)
The Fan Converter Module (FMOD) provides an interface to the fan tray
for both power and monitoring individual fan speeds. The FMOD must be
inserted in the bottom PMOD slot since the fan tray only plugs into the
bottom slot. The FMOD is used instead of the PMOD in D5 UEQ systems
which are running exclusively with QPM QAM cards, i.e. no DPM QAM
cards.
If there are one or more DPM QAM cards in the D5 UEQ system, then it is
necessary to have a PMOD card (which can be inserted into the top PMOD
slot). This is required in order to supply the required voltage rails to the
DPM cards.
CAUTI ON
The chassis thermal monitoring protection system may shut down the D5
UEQ if the fan tray is unplugged for more than two minutes as the chassis
may reach the fatal temperature threshold limit.

Power Supply Unit (PSU)
The D5 UEQ operates on one or two redundant, load-sharing power supply
units (PSUs) (Figure 4-7). PSUs are available in AC or DC versions. Each
PSU can provide full load requirements at 1:1 optional redundancy (refer
to following section on AC PSU compatibility). The load share is nominally
at 50% during normal operation when both power supplies are utilized.
NOTE
If you are only running one Power Supply Unit, it must be installed in the
bottom slot (Slot 1).

Please note the following compatibility rules when replacing or adding AC
PSUs to the earlier D5 UEQ Chassis.
The original AC chassis (Part Number 716625) has a Telkoor PSU with two
types of face plates depending on when it was shipped. The two face
plates, shown below, have the same part number. If you are running the
original D5 UEQ with only one PSU, it may be replaced with either of these
AC PSU. A redundant configuration in the original chassis requires that
both PSUs are the same part number. The newer AC PSU can be installed
in the original chassis but cannot be mixed with the original AC PSUs in a
redundant configuration.

NOTE
If there is a PSU failure, the D5 UEQ logs this as a PSU removal event.
Equally, on insertion of a PSU, a log is generated of the insertion event.
If there is no physical removal of the PSU then a PSU removal event in a
load-sharing configuration would provide alarm capability to deal with the
PSU failure.

page 4-21). This is a safety feature to ensure that the D5 UEQ does not
run with unsafe power conditions. The D5 UEQ checks for PSU over-
voltage and sets the system into such a shutdown state. It will not allow a
boot up if the PSU over-voltage condition continues after a reset.
Wide Area Network Module (WAN)
The WAN is the heart of the D5 UEQ. It provides many of the non-RF inter-
faces for the system, inter-module connectivity to the QAMs via a GigE
switch, and houses the DOCSIS Timing Interface (DTI).
Figure 4-12: Wide Area Network Card (WAN V4)
The WAN Module ingests video from multiple IP sources from the GigE
interfaces and primarily provides MPEG PID remapping and preparation for
processing in the QAM Module Video MUX processing.

GigabitEthernet I nterfaces
(GigE)
The WAN's internal switch fabric serves as the communication pipeline
between its four SFP GigE interfaces and the D5 UEQ's QAM modules. It
supports the ability to receive up to 1488 individual SPTSs simultaneously.
These are subsequently disseminated across up to 96 QAM channels (in
Annex B only) with a maximum of 63 programs per channel.
Each of the GigE interfaces can be configured for system management
though it is not a procedure recommended by ARRIS.
Fast Ethernet Management
I nterface (FE01)
The fastEthernet network management interface supports the ability to
remotely access the CLI via telnet or SSH. This interface is also used to
communicate via SNMP with external NMS and EMS systems. It can also
be used to download logging information to a remote Syslog server.
The fastEthernet port 0/1 can be used as a redundant GE port for any of
the four active SFP GE ports. The fastEthernet port, 0/1, is capable of
1Gbps operation,1000BT Copper mode only. The fastEthernet port 0/1
CANNOT be used as an active GE port (i.e., a video carrying port) because
it does not support the same configuration commands as GE ports, nor is
it mapped internally in the D5 UEQ to act as a video/depi port.
DVB Conditional Access Key

Supports the use of DVB SimulCrytp on ETH2. When the fastEthernet 0/1
port is used as a redundant GE port for the SFP GE ports, the fastEthernet
0/2 port must be reconfigured with the FE 0/1 settings (the NOC network
configuration) to maintain functionality. Failure to move the configuration
would result in loss of management access to the D5 UEQ.

Dual WAN
The support of dual WAN cards in the D5 UEQ chassis provides higher
WAN bandwidth capacity and accommodates the Quad-Port QAM Module
(QPM 8DX4). The QPM 8DX4 QAMs can be assigned to either WAN,
allowing the D5 UEQ to function as two logically-independent systems. The
addition of a second WAN module helps to accommodate the substantial
increase in required ingress. This additional WAN operates in slot 8 of the
D5 UEQ chassis.
Since the maximum bandwidth capacity of the each WAN module is 4
Gbps, the D5 UEQ should be configured with dual WANs when the total
bandwidth of the system, including Dual-Port QAM Module (DPM 4DX2) in
Quad Mode and Quad-Port QAM Modules (QPM 8DX4), is greater than 4
Gbps.
Quadrature Amplitude Modulation Module (QAM)
The Dual-Port QAM Module (DPM 4DX2) in Quad Mode and the Dual-Port
QAM Module (DPM 6DX2) in Hex Mode support the M-CMTS DRFI specifi-
cation for M-CMTS RF QAM modulation/upconversion, over the 54-867MHz
spectral range and 54-1GHz for the Quad-Port QAM Module (QPM 8DX4).
It ingests transport streams (TS) from the WAN, and modulates them onto
RF carriers that are then upconverted to their provisioned bandwidth allo-
cations and performs DVB scrambling when configured.

4 System Components
The QAM module contains the upconversion and RF components of the
system. All the parameters associated with these components are
controlled on the WAN module then signaled to the QAM module. The
parameters that can be modified are:
format
annex
interleaver
frequency
symbol rate
power
spectral inversion
There can be up to six QAM modules in a D5 UEQ chassis. In a single Dual-
Port QAM Module (DPM 4DX2) in Quad Mode, there are eight QAM chan-
nels. When an RF port is configured in quad mode, there are four QAM
channels per RF connector, with two RF connectors per QAM (labeled RF1
and RF2) totaling 48 channels.
On a single Dual-Port QAM Module (DPM 6DX2) in Hex Mode, there are six
QAM channels per RF connector totaling twelve channels. When both RF
connectors are configured in hex (Annex B only), there are a total of 72
channels.
On the Quad-Port QAM Module (QPM 8DX4), the configuration of each
QAM channel on each RF output port is highly flexible. The number of QAM
output channels can be set independently for each RF port, ranging from
one QAM channel per port up to eight QAM channels per RF port totalling
32 QAM channels per module or 192 QAM channels per full-fill chassis.
The parameters format, annex, interleaver, frequency, symbol rate, power
and spectral inversion are associated to a port but configured on an RF
connector basis. The interface ranges are from one to two on a Dual-Port
QAM Module (DPM 4DX2) in Quad Mode and a Dual-Port QAM Module
(DPM 6DX2) in Hex Mode while the interface range on a Quad-Port QAM
Module (QPM 8DX4) ranges from one to four. The CLI command inter-
face qam 4/1.2 addresses the second QAM channel on the first RF
connector of the QAM module in slot four.
All QAM channels are set to quad mode and disabled by default before
being configured and enabled to ensure no interference in any existing
QAM channels.
The following tables describe the status of the LEDs on the Quad-Port QAM
Module (QPM 8DX4) under normal and failure conditions.

with the demodulator IC that recovers the MPEG signal and collects various
RF-related statistics presented by the D5 UEQ, such as corrected/uncor-
rected FEC blocks, RF power levels and SNR information. The recovered
MPEG signal can also be directed through the QPM 8DX4 module FPGA and
transmitted as a UDP/IP stream to a remote video acquisition device. This
mode of MPEG streaming is known as post-rf snooping as opposed to the
existing post-mux snooping, however both follow the same type of
configuration and stream content in the same way to a remote UDP/IP
destination.
Each QPM demodulator operates over the full set of QAM channels, either
scanning all QAM channels periodically (staying on each QAM for a config-
urable amount of time) or programmed to stop on a single QAM channel
forever. The WAN module and each QPM 8DX4 module coordinate to
ensure the correct RF port is switched to the tuner and that the tuner
delivers the correct frequency to the demodulator every time a specific a
QAM channel is requested to be demodulated/monitored. The QPM 8DX4
module comprises of a local microcontroller, that directly controls the
demodulator, tuner and RF switch, and reads back information from the
demodulator IC, subsequently retrieved by the WAN module. The
retrieved information is recorded on a per QAM channel basis, and is avail-
able from the CLI, the WEB Manager and the Application Manager for
display purposes.
Dual Interleavers per RF Port
To operate a real QAM-sharing of services on a single F-connector, we
need to run both video applications and DOCSIS M-CMTS concurrently on
the same RF output. In order to run these services together, different
interleaver depths are required as the longer/deeper interleaver settings,
required for video to allow corrupted MPEG data to be corrected, nega-
tively impact the short interleave depths required for DOCSIS interactive
services to reduce the cable plant round-trip delays.
The D5 UEQ QPM module has been updated in Release 3.0.1 to allow the
operation of two independent interleavers per block of four QAM channels
on each RF port. This will enable QAM sharing to be deployed on the QPM,
with DOCSIS running over one block of four QAM channel blocks and video
running over the other block of four QAM channels.
The interleaver settings are applicable to a block of four QAM channels;
meaning channels numbered 1-4 can be configured with one interleaver
depth, while channels 5-8 can be configured with a different interleaver
depth.
In 8-channel mode (octal), the dual interleaver support allows the first four
ports to be configured with one interleaver setting and the second four
ports to be configured with a different setting.
ARRI S D5 Universal Edge QAM
Release 3.0.1 ARRIS PROPRIETARY All Rights Reserved 4-19
2003-2010 ARRIS Group, Inc.
In 6-channel mode (hex), the dual interleaver support allows the first four
ports to be configured with one interleaver setting and the last two ports
(ports 5 and 6) to be configured with a different setting.
In 4-channel mode (quad), only a single interleaver setting can be applied.
The following diagram details operation of dual interleaver for the different
channel modes available with the QPM modules (single and dual are not
shown).
Figure 4-17: 8 QAM Channel per RF Port
The CLI commands are defined to ensure that the selection of the inter-
leaver setting for each block of four channels will be unambiguous during
normal operation or through a reboot scenario. As the interleaver setting
is applied per block of four channels, the first channel of each block is used
to record the most recent interleaver value. When a user decides to
change the interleaver depth of any QAM channel within a block of four
QAM channels, the D5 UEQ records the change against the first channel of
that block.
For example, if a user modifies the interleaver setting to 128,1 on QAM
1/1.3, the interleaver would be reconfigured and the setting saved on QAM
1/1.1. The CLI will show the interleaver setting on QAM 1/1.3 with a

It also monitors power, temperature and other important functions in the
D5 UEQ modules.
The MON controls the only physical serial interface (CLI port, see D5 UEQ
Front Chassis on page 4-3) on the D5 UEQ. The serial interface can be
used to access the D5 UEQ CLI.
The MON module drives the four line, 20 character display on the D5 UEQ
front panel (D5 UEQ Front Chassis on page 4-3). The LCD panel has an
associated keypad interface that allows users to navigate a simple read-
only menu system. The LCD displays information regarding faults or
alarms that have occurred on a per module basis in the system.

Auto Shutdown Recovery
Button
The Auto Shutdown Recovery button is used to power up the D5 UEQ after
the system has shutdown due to a fault (e.g. the D5 UEQ will shut itself
down automatically if the fan tray is removed from the chassis causing the
temperatures to rise above set thresholds). The D5 UEQ will not power
itself up afterwards even though the power cables are still connected. The
user has to press the Auto Shutdown Recovery button in order to bring the
D5 UEQ back up.
NOTE
The D5 UEQ system will only shut down the power supply as a last resort.
The thermal protection scheme is such that individual modules are shut
down if they reach a fatal temperature. The MON card is kept alive as
long as possible and would be the last module to shut down. If the
temperature continues to rise and the MON reaches its fatal temperature
threshold, then the PSU(s) is shut down using the inhibit relay and the
Auto Shutdown Recovery button is then required to recover. There is a
very low probability that the normally-closed electro-mechanical relay
which controls the Auto-Shutdown function may have been subject to
excessive mechanical shock duirng shipment. This may result in lack of
D5 UEQ power-up following out-of-boc set up. ARRIS recomments that a

Overview
The Dual WAN feature supports dual WAN cards in the D5 UEQ chassis to
provide higher WAN bandwidth capacity and to accommodate the Quad-
Port QAM Module (QPM 8DX4). QAMs can be assigned to either WAN,
allowing the D5 UEQ to function as two logically-independent systems.

5 Dual WAN
Figure 5-1 depicts a D5 UEQ chassis with QAMs 1, 2 and 4 assigned to
WAN 7. QAMs 3, 5 and 6 are assigned to WAN 8.
Table 5-1: Dual WAN Chassis
Table 5-2 illustrates the same D5 UEQ chassis separated into two logically-
independent systems.
Table 5-2: Dual WAN Logical Systems
The maximum bandwidth capacity of the each WAN module is 4 Gbps. The
bandwidth required by the QAMs is dependent on the annex, modulation
depth (64 or 256) and number of enabled channels.
The D5 UEQ should be configured with dual WANs when the total band-
width of the system, including Dual-Port QAM Module (DPM 4DX2) in Quad
Mode and Quad-Port QAM Modules (QPM 8DX4), is greater than 4 Gbps.
QAM cards should be divided between the WANs to ensure that both WANs
operate within the limits of their bandwidth capacity.
Configuration Management
The 3.0 release will utilize separate configuration data for WAN 7 and WAN
8. WAN 7 will continue to use the startup-configuration file contained in
the /update directory on the compact flash. WAN 8 will use a startup-
configuration file contained in the /update/wan2 directory.
Slot Assignments Ideally, slot assignment data would be stored in the startup-configuration
file. However, since two startup-configuration files could result in
conflicting data, a new file (/update/slotAssignments) has been
created to store slot assignments.

The startup-configuration files for WAN 7 and WAN 8, as well as
the slotAssignments file, are concantenated in the showtech output
to reflect the configuration of the entire system.
When the Dual WAN feature is disabled, all slots are reassigned to WAN 7.
The Dual WAN feature is disabled by default and must be enabled before
slot assignments can be configured.
A QAM card must be shutdown before the slot can be re-assigned when
the QAM is equipped and the current slot owner (WAN) is in-service. When
WAN 8 is in-service, all equipped cards assigned to WAN 8 must be shut-
down before the Dual WAN feature can be disabled.
In the event that a WAN fails or is unequipped, the slots assigned to that
WAN can be re-assigned to the other WAN without putting the QAM cards
in the admin down state.
An unequipped slot does not need to be shutdown before assigning the
slot. Similarly, when WAN 8 has failed or is unequipped, the Dual WAN
feature can be disabled without putting the QAM cards assigned to WAN 8
in the admin down state.
Note that slot assignments are not autonomously redistributed due to the
failure or removal of a WAN card.
Hardware Mismatch Alarm A Hardware Mismatch alarm will be generated when a WAN card is present
in slot 8 and the Dual WAN feature is disabled. A WAN in slot 8 will be held
in reset until the feature is enabled.
A request to disable the Dual WAN feature will be rejected when the WAN
in slot 7 is not in-service (e.g., unequipped or failed).

QAM Management
A QAM interface can be provisioned from either WAN, regardless of which
WAN the slot is assigned. However, changes are not synchronized across
the WANs.
A QAM interface configuration change made from a user-interface
provided by the slot owner takes effect immediately. A configuration
change made via an interface to the other WAN is saved as a pre-provi-
sioned configuration. The QAM is reconfigured accordingly if the slot is re-
assigned to that WAN.
When pre-configuring a QAM interface for a slot that is assigned to the
other WAN, a message is displayed indicating that the provisioning will be
applied when the slot is re-assigned to this WAN, as shown in Figure 5-1.

When displaying the attributes of a QAM interface for a slot that is
assigned to the other WAN, the output will indicate that the slot is assigned
to the other WAN, as shown in Figure 5-2.
Figure 5-2: Show I nterface Warning
WAN Synchronization in Dual WAN Configuration
The Dual WAN feature can be configured from either WAN. Dual WAN
configuration changes initiated at a particular WAN interface are
forwarded to the MON card. The MON card broadcasts the configuration
changes to both WANs to keep them synchronized.
Because of the dependence on the MON for synchronizing the WANs and
managing the slotAssignments file, Dual WAN configuration changes
cannot be made when the MON card is unequipped or communication
between the MON and WAN has failed.
The Dual WAN mode and slot assignments can be configured from a WAN
regardless of the state of the other WAN. A slot can be assigned to an
unequipped or failed WAN card. The WAN card will be updated with the
current Dual WAN configuration when put back into service.
CLI support A single CLI session will provide the interface for configuring the entire
system including QAMs assigned to either WAN.
5-6 ARRIS PROPRIETARY All Rights Reserved J uly 22, 2010
5 Dual WAN
The 3.0 implementation will manage the D5 UEQ chassis as two logically-
independent systems. Therefore, commands executed on a CLI session
hosted by a particular WAN only apply to that WAN and its assigned slots.
There currently is no ability to toggle between WAN 7 and WAN 8 CLI
sessions.
Previously, the MON provided access to a CLI session hosted by WAN 7
(single-WAN system) and would display the WAN restart information on
the MON screen when the WAN rebooted. In a Dual WAN implementation,
the user will be able to select either WAN 7 or WAN 8 to host the CLI
session but the MON will no longer display the WAN restart information.
Dual WAN Configuration
The CLI provides an interface for configuring the Dual WAN feature and
displaying the current status. The feature can be enabled and disabled by
issuing the dualwan command and slot assignments are made using the
assign slot <1-6> wan <7-8> command.
Dual WAN CLI Commands The status of the feature and current slot assignments can be displayed
using the show linecard status verbose command. The show
linecard status verbose table does not list entries for unequipped
slots.
The output below displays the assignment of slot 6 to WAN 8 and the
status of the feature and all slot assignments.

Reloads Under the current, single-WAN implementation, the MON and WAN are
both restarted when a reload command is issued. Likewise, the Dual
WAN implementation of the CLI reload command will launch a full
system restart of the MON and both WAN cards.
The settings entered for saving the running configuration and performing
the power-on self-test (POST) when executing the reload command will
be applied to both WAN cards.
Single WAN Reboot In Release 3.0, the reboot command was introduced to reboot a single
WAN without performing a full system restart.
SNMP Support The SNMP interface supports querying the status of the feature and
current slot assignments. The interface also allows for enabling and
disabling the feature and configuring the slot assignments. The Dual WAN
feature must be enabled in order to set a slot assignment value, or the set
will fail.
The SNMP interface can query the provisioning information for all slots in
the chassis. Pre-provisioned slot information is returned for slots assigned
to the other WAN.
The d5SlotExtMIB.txt file contains the MIB definitions for the Dual WAN
feature. This MIB is an extension of the ARRIS D5 UEQ MIB. All Dual WAN
MIB values are read/write.
Face Plate Display The D5 UEQ faceplate will alternate the display of the WAN host names
and IP addresses on the main screen when the Dual WAN feature is
enabled.
The faceplate will also display the WAN assignment of the QAM slots when
the feature is enabled.
Web Manager Support for the Dual WAN
The Web Manager user interface will provide a configuration page to
support the assignment of slots and allow for the configuration of the Dual
WAN feature. The linecard status page will be updated to display the
assignments. For more details, please refer to the latest version of the
Web Manager Help file.
Application Manager Support
The Dual WAN chassis will be displayed as two separate control planes
from the D5AM perspective. Changes to the AM/BCT are expected to be
minimal, with most of the changes in the Software Management View.

DTI Timing Support In a Dual WAN configuration, each WAN is supplied with a DOCSIS Timing
Interface (DTI) input to synchronize with the other WAN clock signal via a
QAM card. When Dual WAN is enabled, the WAN is able to adjust the
frequency of the input to the DTI client to keep it synchronized with the
other WAN.
The timing signal for the WAN and QAM cards comes from the DTI client
firmware in the IPPROC FPGA. Dual WAN timing synchronization requires
at least one QAM card be equipped, provisioned and operational so that
the WAN card (requiring clock synchronization) can access the clock differ-
ence in the QAM card. One of the WAN cards must be set as the timing
master when Dual WAN is enabled.
Feature Compatibility
The Dual WAN configuration is compatible with all D5 UEQ features. A slot
configured for QAM sparing can only protect QAMs assigned to the same
WAN.
Software Upgrades The default configuration of this feature provides for seamless upgrades.
The Dual WAN feature does not affect in-service systems upgraded to 3.0,
regardless of the WAN and QAM configuration.
Software Downgrades A Dual WAN system running a 3.0 configuration can be downgraded to a
pre-3.0 configuration using the normal procedure, with one exception. The
slotAssignments file should be deleted after performing the down-
grade. Otherwise, the Dual WAN configuration will be automatically
applied following a future upgrade to 3.0.
NOTE
The /update/wan2/startup-configuration is not used in pre-3.0
releases. Removing this file is optional.
Software loads prior to 3.0 do not support Dual WAN. Therefore, WAN 8
will be held in reset and all slots will be assigned to WAN 7 when a down-
grade is performed.
System Commissioning
Initial configuration of a D5 UEQ system can be performed using the CLI
set-up script. This script prompts the user for system information, such as
IP addresses, and interface configuration, such as annex and frequency.
An equivalent set-up page is provided by the Web Manager application as
well.
ARRI S D5 Universal Edge QAM
Release 3.0.1 ARRIS PROPRIETARY All Rights Reserved 5-9
Commissioning of a Dual WAN system is performed by configuring WAN 7
and its associated slots. The Dual WAN feature is then enabled and slot
assignments are made. Finally, initial set-up should be performed on WAN
8 to configure the WAN and its associated slots.
Backup and Restore Both configuration files, /update/startup-configuration for WAN
7 and /update/wan2/startup-configuration for WAN8, must be
saved and restored to capture the full system configuration. Additionally,
the /update/slotAssignments file must also be saved and restored
when the Dual WAN feature is enable.

Racking Recommendations
The D5 UEQ can be installed in both open rack and enclosed cabinet
configurations and is designed for use in 19 inch racks or cabinets that are
more than 31.5 inches (800mm) deep and comply with the Electronics
Industries Association (EIA) 310D standards. The front panel of the D5
UEQ protrudes two inches from the front mounting bracket into the aisle.
The depth of the D5 UEQ from the mounting brackets to the tip of the F-
types is then 23.25 inches.
If your headend is equipped with telco racks which typically mid-mount
equipment as opposed to general racks that are used to mount equipment
at the front of the racks, the mounting ears supplied with the D5 UEQ
can be installed at the mid-mount location to allow the unit to be installed
in a telco rack. See Mounting the D5 UEQ in a 19-inch Rack on page 6-10
for details.
ARRI S D5 Universal Edge QAM
Release 3.0.1 ARRIS PROPRIETARY All Rights Reserved 6-5

NOTE
ARRIS recommends the use of the rear-mount bracket kit (ARCT01138)
to provide rear-support for the D5 UEQ within a rack. This is supplied as a
standard accessory with each D5 UEQ.
Installation of the equipment in a rack should not restrict airflow. Air
cooling and exhaust is accomplished from the sides of the D5 UEQ (see
Figure 4-6, D5 UEQ Airflow direction, on page 4-6). A seven inch gap
between the left hand side (exhaust) of the D5 UEQ in Rack 1 and
ingest side of the D5 UEQ in Rack 2. This is the expected distance
between the equipment racked in most open frame 19 inch racks.
ARRIS recommends not having more than two adjacent (adjacent
being defined as racks with a seven inch gap as described above)
racks of D5 UEQs or similar side-cooled equipment.
Mount the D5 UEQ to prevent uneven mechanical loading on the
chassis. Improper mounting can cause premature structural failure
and potentially hazardous conditions.
Avoid having the outlet of any unit in an adjoining rack blowing into
fan inlets of the D5 UEQ.
When installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the operating
temperature inside the rack environment may be higher than ambient
temperature. Install the D5 UEQ in an environment where the ambient
temperatures are between 32 and 122 Fahrenheit (0 to 50
Celsius).
Although the D5 UEQ can be racked in an open rack with up to 13 D5
UEQs on a raised floor (more than 13 exceeds the 140lb/sq. ft. limit)
and up to 18 D5 UEQs on cement floors without issue (even with
thermal conditions of aisle temperature being 122 (50 Celsius),
ARRIS is limiting this to a recommendation of 10 stacked D5 UEQs in
both conditions to help with cable management, rack power schemes
and allowing for potentially other equipment in the rack such as
combiners or switches.
Recommended Rack-type for the D5 UEQ
ARRIS recommends the use of a dedicated open 19 inch rack (with no side
panels or front doors) with rear support columns for use with the D5 UEQ.
This configuration provides the best thermal environment and access for
installation, cabling and maintenance.

579mm. ARRIS recommends that the rear-vertical rack-flange is posi-
tioned approximately 570mm -0mm to +165mm back from the front-
vertical-rack-flanges.
Do not use front-vertical-rack-flanges which obscure the fans immedi-
ately behind the D5 UEQs front fascia.
A gap of 3.5 inches from the side panel of the D5 UEQ to the next adja-
cent equipment or rack-panel is sufficient to achieve air flow of
200cfm, although a 7 inch gap is preferred.
The D5 UEQ may be equally stacked with either a vertical spacing
between each or with no spacing. There is little thermal impact to
stacking D5 UEQs directly on top of each other with no vertical
spacing.
Considerations for Shared-racks and Cabinets
Other configurations such as a shared open rack, or a shared enclosed rack
(cabinet) may also be used, but involve wider considerations or restric-
tions, particularly with respect to avoidance of circulating airflow.
Shared Open Rack Front-to-back coolingOther equipment within a shared open rack
that utilized front-to-back cooling should have no thermal impact on the
D5 UEQ units provided the exhaust hot air is properly directed out of the
rack in accordance with standard equipment room recommendations.
Side-to-side coolingFor other equipment within a shared open rack
that utilizes side-to-side cooling, consideration of the relative direction of
air flow should be made. ARRIS does not recommend co-location within a
rack of D5 UEQs with other equipment where the side-to-side cooling is in
the opposite direction. This leads to the re-circulation of exhaust air which
in turn can lead to an unpredictable thermal environment.
ARRIS recommends no more than two open-racks of D5 UEQs are located
immediately adjacent to each other in the same cable headend since air
exhaust of one D5 UEQ rack will preheat the air by approximately 6-7C
which will then be ingested into the adjacent D5 UEQ rack. While compo-
nent failure will not occur with three racks side-by-side in this way in a
cable-headend ambient of 50C, a cumulative 6-7C increase per adjacent
rack in the operating temperature of third and subsequent racks would
result in a reduction of MTBF of D5 UEQs in these third and subsequent
racks. If additional open-racks of D5 UEQs are to be deployed in the same
cable-headend, care should be taken to locate those racks where a barrier
of cooled air comes between these and other D5 UEQs racks.
SpacingARRIS recommends a 1RU vertical spacing from other equip-
ment immediately above or below a D5 UEQ to ensure no conduction of
heat to or from the D5 UEQ to other such equipment.

6 I nstalling the D5 UEQ
Adjacent Racks Open racks When open racks equipped with D5 UEQ are installed next
to other open racks, the following points need to be considered:
No particular restrictions need apply where the adjacent rack(s) are
installed with equipment that utilizes front-to-back cooling.
Where adjacent racks(s) are installed with equipment that utilizes
side-to-side cooling, and this includes racks solely populated with D5
UEQs, then the exhaust air of one rack can act as the air input for the
next rack. In this case, ARRIS advises no more than two such adjacent
open racks of D5 UEQs where one rack can exhaust directly to the next
rack. Other groups of two such adjacent racks can be deployed in the
cable-headend when a cold-air barrier comes between groups. No
more than two racks of D5 UEQs should be placed adjacent to each
other.
Enclosed racks ARRIS does NOT recommend the use of a dedicated
enclosed rack or cabinet for use with the D5 UEQ.

Deviation from these recommendations may result in a reduction of the
D5 UEQ operating performance.

6 I nstalling the D5 UEQ
Procedure 6-1 Mounting the D5 UEQ in a 19-inch Rack
1 Mount the D5 UEQ in the rack and secure it using two screws on each side.
See Figure 6-3 for placement of mounting ears.
Figure 6-3: Location of Mounting Ears
The following installation considerations should also be noted:
a Place the D5 UEQ's as low as possible in the rack to provide access to
the lowest temperature air in the rack. This is the most efficient
cooling. This is a particularly important consideration where four or
more D5 UEQ's are installed in the same rack.
b The D5 UEQ system can be mounted using the front mounting ears
alone. However, for fully filled systems, additional rear support is
advisable. ARRIS provides an optional rear-mount racking accessory
(ARRIS part number ARCT01138). Users may also elect to mount the
D5 UEQ in a rack or framed mounted tray that will support the weight
of the unit. These trays are available from a number of rack hardware
vendor.
End of procedure
If your D5 UEQ shipment includes modules not installed at the factory,
refer to Inserting QAM and WAN Modules, page 6-12; otherwise, proceed
to Connecting Cables, page 6-19.

Grounding
Reliable grounding of rack mounted equipment must be maintained. See
Safety for common safety considerations. Also consider using direct
connections instead of power strips to branch circuits.
The shield of the coaxial cable must be connect to earth (grounded) at the
entrance to the building in accordance with applicable national electrical
installation codes.
In the U.S., this is required by NFPA 70 (National Electrical Code) Article
820 and by the Canadian Electric Code, CSA C22.1 No. 1. In the European
Union and in certain other countries, CATV installation equipotential
bonding requirements are specified in IEC 60728-11, Cable networks for
television signals, sound signals and interactive services, Part 11: Safety.
For safe operation, this equipment is intended to be installed in accordance
with the requirement of IEC 60728-11 for safe operation.
Grounding Stud Use the supplied M4 stud on the rear of the unit (see Figure 6-4, Location
of M4 Grounding Studs, on page 6-11). This stud can accept an M4 ring
crimp or a size #8 in diameter. The minimum permissible is a 12 AWG
ground cable and the maximum size allowed with this stud is a 6 AWG.
WARNI NG
Before applying any power to the chassis, the chassis must be grounded
using the Grounding Stud.
The following figure shows the two different versions of the D5 UEQ Rear
Power Panel types and where the M4 Grounding Stud is located.

Circuit Breakers Circuit breakers should be selected to ensure they meet both the steady
state and the inrush current. The inrush current increases proportionate to
the supplied AC-voltage-magnitude, whereas the steady state current
decreases inversely as AC-voltage-magnitude increases. For appropriate
selection of a circuit breaker at 100Vac operation:
For single AC PSU per D5 UEQ at 110Vac, select a breaker which gives
at least a 4:1 ratio between inrush and steady state current handling.
For dual AC PSUs per D5 UEQ:
- If a single breaker is to be used for both PSUs, for operation at
110Vac, select a breaker which gives at least a 6:1 ratio between
inrush and steady state current handling.
- ARRIS recommends using two separate circuit breakers to feed
each PSU to give independent sources to AC-mains power to each
PSU in which the 4:1 ratio applies to each.
Connecting Cables
AC Power Cables
The D5 UEQ chassis supports two hot-swappable, load-sharing power
supply unit (PSU) modules. A single PSU can provide all the power that a
fully loaded system needs with a sufficient safety margin. The upper and
lower PSU slots can be used with either an AC PSU or a DC PSU.
The AC PSU configuration will always be shipped with the PSU unit in the
lower PSU1 slot. If you have only ordered one AC PSU then use the lower
PSU1 rear plug to power up your unit. If you use the upper PSU2 plug the
unit will not power on. If you have ordered a unit with two AC PSUs then
plug in both power cords to bring them online.

Should it be necessary to route cables down the sides of the D5 UEQ,
they should be routed between the second and third fans (from the
front) where there is a break in the inlet and outlet exhaust grills.
The D5 UEQ rear-mount bracket assembly (ARCT01138) may addi-
tionally be used to conveniently attach bundles of RF coaxial cabling
to the rear of the D5 UEQ, using tie-wrap or other cable bundling
accessories. This accessory and the cable-bundle bound to it, also
provide a useful barrier to air circulation in that air heated by the D5
UEQ and expelled from the right-hand side of the rack is forced to
egress away from the D5 UEQ.
Both side walls of the D5 UEQ should be kept free from any obstruc-
tion. The airflow should be free along both internal side walls of the
cabinet.
The cabinet should have open aperture for cable routing on the top
cover, bottom base and/or rear door.
1U cable management panel with cable shunting rings can be installed
between each D5 UEQ.
The green outline in Figure 6-16, Cable Management, on page 6-26, shows
the preferred path for all cable routing. The cable management panel with
shunting rings can be ordered from most rack and cabinet suppliers.

Configuring the D5 UEQ with CLI
Setup-Mode Configuration Script
The Setup-Mode Configuration Script is an intuitive and interactive setup
program used to configure a D5 UEQ without a pre-existing software
configuration. It is an easy to use, text-entry interface that is activated
upon initial power-up of a D5 UEQ.
The Setup-Mode Configuration Script is a wizard that guides a user
through input setup parameters and then launches a configuration file that
allows the D5 UEQ to boot successfully and stream video.
It is a simple tool targeted at users who expect to manage the D5 UEQ
primarily through the D5 UEQ Web Manager.
For operating instructions on the Setup-Mode Configuration Script, please
consult the D5 UEQ Quick Start Guide. The D5 UEQ Quick Start Guide
instructions, including Connecting Cables, are an alternate to this
chapter and accomplishes the same configuration using the text-entry
command line interface (CLI).
Serial Port Connection for the D5 UEQ Configuration
Connecting the Operator
Console
This section gives a detail description of the cabling for the operator
console. The operator console is necessary to initially power up and
configure the D5 UEQ. Use an asynchronous terminal or a PC with asyn-
chronous terminal emulation software.

Requirements To create the configuration file, you need the following information:
IP addresses to be assigned to interfaces.
Cable plant configuration information: annex, frequencies, modula-
tion, etc.
General Configuration
General configuration includes management data (SNMP and CLI access).
When adding configuration information, change names and identification
strings to meet local requirements.
Ethernet Port Configuration
In previous releases, the WAN card provided management access on the
fastEthernet 0/1 port (ETH1). In release 3.0.1, ETH2 has been enabled
and should be used for management access if you plan to use ETH1 for
gigabitEthernet MAC redundancy. An IP address will need to be assigned
to the port. Make changes as necessary for your deployment.
After powering up of the D5 UEQ, perform the following from the PC
terminal via the serial port on the front of the D5 UEQ to configure

Dual WAN Configuration
If you plan to run Dual WAN, you must first configure WAN 7 and its asso-
ciated QAM slots. Dual WAN must be enabled before QAM slot assignments
can be configured for WAN 8.
Start a CLI session by connecting to the D5 UEQ serial port (|0|0|) on the
D5 UEQ front panel. You will be prompted to select the WAN card:
====================================
Please select a WAN card:
1. WAN slot 7
2. WAN slot 8
====================================
Type the number 2 (WAN slot 8) and hit Enter.
Log into Global configuration mode and set-up the route to your gateway:
D5(config)#ip route <destination prefix IP> <destination subnet mask> <forwarding
router IP>
Assign an IP address to the Fast Ethernet Port of the WAN-8 card:
D5(config)#interface fastethernet 0/1
D5(config-if)#ip address <IP address> <IP mask>
D5(config-if)#exit
To enable/disable the Dual-WAN feature via the CLI, issue the dualwan
command.
D5(config)#dualwan timing 7
Dual WAN mode has been enabl ed
NOTE
When two WAN cards are present, one must be chosen to be the master
timing WAN.
QAM Configuration
Each QAM card installed in the D5 UEQ provides two RF output ports. Each
port supports up to four QAM channels on the Dual-Port QAM Module (DPM
4DX2) in Quad Mode and six QAM channels on the Dual-Port QAM Module

(DPM 6DX2) in Hex Mode and eight QAM channels on the Quad-Port QAM
Module (QPM 8DX4). The interface designation is QAMslot/port.channel,
where:
slot is the slot number of the card (1 to 6);
port is the RF port (facing the back of the D5 UEQ, port 1 is on the
left);
channel is the channel number (1 to 4 for the DPM 4DX2, 1 to 6 for
the DPM 6DX2, or 1 to 8 for the QPM 8DX4). Configuring without the
channel number will configure all channels at once.
The following example will enable the Annex and video format on the QAM
card in slot 1:
D5(config)#interface qam 1

Configuring the D5 UEQ with the Web Manager
Overview
The D5 UEQ Web Manager is a comprehensive graphical user interface
(GUI) element manager that enables a user to configure, monitor and
troubleshoot a D5 UEQ. It reports D5 UEQ inventory via auto detection and
allows GUI control over most commands found in the CLI, therefore expe-
diting and simplifying common configurations that would take considerably
longer utilizing the CLI exclusively.
The Web Manager focuses on a specific subset of features which allows an
operator to manage MPEG configuration, monitor bandwidth and perfor-
mance, monitor events in real-time, and provision QAM modules.
The Web Manager utilizes Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML), Dynamic
Hyper Text Markup Language (DHTML), J avaScript, and Cascading Style
Sheets (CSS).
Since the Web Manager is session-based, each individual login will
generate its own session. There can be a maximum of four sessions logged
in at any one time. If all four sessions are running, any subsequent attempt
to log in will fail until one of the four sessions is logged out.
NOTE
While both Internet Explorer 8.x and FireFox support multiple sessions to
multiple D5 UEQs, they only support a single session to a particular D5
UEQ at any one time. This is because they share cookies between all
tabs and windows by default (even if a new instance is opened from the
Start menu). These shared cookies call all instances to resolve to the
same Web Manager session, leading to an inability to login. A new
Internet Explorer session must be explicitly requested by selecting File -
> New Session from an open Internet Explorer instance. Prior versions
of Internet Explorer create new sessions with new browser instances.
Logging out consists of one of the following:
Clicking the logout button.
Closing the browser window/browser tab containing a logged in
session.
Navigating to a different web-site from a logged-in session page. (You
will have five seconds to click the browser Back button to return to the
Web Manager before the session is logged out. This is to cover acci-
dental navigation from the current session.)
ARRI S D5 Universal Edge QAM
Release 3.0.1 ARRIS PROPRIETARY All Rights Reserved 7-11
2003-2010 ARRIS Group, Inc.
Session Timeout A session that has Privilege access shall have its
access level automatically logged out after a period of ten minutes of inac-
tivity. You will need to log back in with the Privilege password before you
can continue. By going to the Startup Configuration, Preferences menu,
you will be able to change the default session timeout.
System Requirements The Web Manager is optimized to support Internet Explorer version 6.0.
The minimum PC platform requirements are:
Windows 2000 Pro
Windows XP Pro/Corp
Pentium III @ 600MHz, 512 MB RAM
Video Card and Monitor capable of displaying 1024 x 800 in True Color
10baseT Ethernet Card
10 Mb of hard disk space
The Web Manager browser sends and retrieves data over port 80 after
user authentication. User authentication occurs when the user is prompted
to login. Once a password has been entered, access level authentication is
granted for either Monitor or Configure Modes.
NOTE
Do not use Mozilla Firefox because it could cause damage to your running
configuration.
Setting up the D5 UEQ
Connecting to the D5 UEQ The D5 UEQ can be setup without using CLI. You can use an Ethernet
cable and connect directly to the Web Managers FastEthernet port on the
rear of the chassis.
Procedure 7-2 After the Web Manager is launched, use the Basic Setup Steps
below to configure the D5 UEQ.
1 Power up the D5 UEQ
2 Plug your PC into the configured management port <ETH1 or ETH2> on
the rear of the chassis with an Ethernet cable.
3 Configure your PC to accept DHCP by:
a Right-click the Start button
b Click Control Panel
c Click Network Connections
d Click local area connections

Figure 7-2: Web Browser
5 D5 UEQ Web page will launch, then click on the Login button and the
system will log you in automatically. Since no user accounts have been set
up at this point, you will be logged in with Privilege access. (Once user
accounts have been configured, you will be presented with two input
boxes, one to enter the username and the other to enter the password.
You will then need to use the username and password that was
configured.)
NOTE
If the D5 UEQ Web page does not launch because the DHCP has assigned
the PC the same IP address as the D5 UEQ, go to step 6.
6 To release your PCs DHCP IP address and reconfigure a new one, use the
following steps:
a Right-click the Start button, and then click Run
b In the box, type: cmd and click ok
c At the command prompt, type: ipconfig / all, hit <enter>
d Confirm address is the same as the D5 UEQ
e At the command prompt, type: ipconfig / release, hit <enter>
f At the command prompt, type: ipconfig / renew, hit <enter>
g At the command prompt, type: exit, hit <enter>
h Go back to step 5.
Web Manager Login Modes As with CLI, the D5 UEQ Web Manager has two login modes for which
there are two (not necessarily different) passwords.
ARRI S D5 Universal Edge QAM
Release 3.0.1 ARRIS PROPRIETARY All Rights Reserved 7-13
2003-2010 ARRIS Group, Inc.
The User password gains access to the Monitor mode which is used to
monitor the status of the D5 UEQ. The Monitor mode allows read-only
access to the D5 UEQ. Configuration changes cannot be made in the
Monitor mode.
The Privilege password gains access to the Configure mode which is used
to configure the D5 UEQ. The Configure mode allows read-write access to
the D5 UEQ. The Configure mode has a session timeout safety feature.
You must complete a configuration task within ten minutes or you will be
automatically logged out. The session timeout period is configurable in the
Preferences menu under the Startup Configuration drop down menu.
Once the user is logged into the system, the Web Manager will display the
Web Manager D5 System Summary/Home page (Figure 7-11) which
profiles the major module states.
Web Manager AAA Implementation
Prior to Release 3.0.1, The D5 UEQ AAA implementation allowed the use
of TACACS+ and RADIUS for a mix of the Authentication, Authorization
and Accounting functionalities. However, when AAA Authentication was
enabled on the D5 UEQ, access to the D5 Web Manager Configure mode
was disabled. If you were using TACACS+ for Authentication (with the
primary reason being to centralize usernames and password storage),
then you would have been unable to deploy TACACS+ Authentication due
to the loss of Configure access via the Web Manager.
In Release 3.0.1, once configured for TACACS+ Authentication, the Web
Manager will accept login attempts from users, and place them in Monitor
mode or Configure mode, depending on the access level/priority returned
from the TACACS+ Authentication server. The feature relies on the
existing Monitor/Configure levels available in the Web Manager, and does
not require any change to these levels or any change in accessing any of
the Web Manager pages, with the exception of forcing the CLI account
page to be disabled.
The following paragraphs provide the updated view of the Web Manager
when operating with AAA support. The following setup was accomplished
using the configuration presented below, including the AAA and HTTP
configuration options.

D5 UEQ takes care of this, even if the user chooses the Monitor option.
Figure 7-4: AAA Login Prompt (Radius example)
The user is offered a login prompt to submit their login name. The example
shows Radius, but TACACS+ is also supported. The login prompt can be
changed by the remote AAA authentication service (depending on how it
has been configured). Once entered, the user must click the submit button
to continue with the login attempt.

level authorization is configured.
Figure 7-7: Failed AAA Login Attempt (Radius example)
The above screen capture shows a login failure after the login/password
combination were not accepted by the removed AAA authentication

Configuring a QAM Module
The QAM module contains the QAM and RF components of the system.
Configurable parameters are: format, annex, inter-leaver, frequency,
symbol rate, power and spectral inversion.
On a single Dual-Port QAM Module (DPM 4DX2) in Quad Mode, there are
two RF connectors (labeled RF1 and RF2) that carry four QAM channels
each for a total of eight QAM channels per module.
On a single Dual-Port QAM Module (DPM 6DX2) in Hex Mode, there are
two RF connectors (labeled RF1 and RF2) that carry six QAM channels per
RF connector totaling twelve channels per module.
On a single Quad-Port QAM Module (QPM 8DX4), there are four indepen-
dent RF connectors that carry eight QAM channels per RF connector for a
total of 32 QAM channels per module.
Format, annex, inter-leaver, frequency, symbol rate, power and spectral
inversion are associated to a single port but are configured on an RF
connector basis.
The ports are listed as Modulator Group 1 and 2 for each QAM slot <1 -
6>. For example, the equivalent CLI command interface QAM 1/1.2,
addresses the second QAM channel on the first RF connector of the QAM
module in slot 1. This correlates to the QAM Mod 1 tab, Modulator Group
Port 1 and the second channel for each associated tab under the QAM
configuration menu.
All QAM channels are set to quad mode and disabled by default to prevent
any QAM channels from interfering with existing cable channel admin state
checkboxes on the QAM submenu tabs, disabling or enabling a QAM
channel.

Enabling the Dual WAN
When both WAN cards are installed and configured with QAM cards in Dual
WAN mode, the D5 UEQ functions as two logically-independent systems.
Dual WAN mode is disabled by default to provide a seamless upgrade path
for in-service D5 UEQ systems. All QAMs are assigned to the WAN in slot
7 when the system is initially loaded.
The Dual WAN Configuration page has been added to the D5 UEQ Web
Manager for each WAN card.

End of procedure
The Release 3.0 uses separate configuration data for WAN-7 and WAN-8.
/update/startup-configuration, for WAN-7
/update/wan2/startup-configuration, for WAN-8
Ideally, slot assignment data would be stored in the startup-config-
uration file; however, with the two configuration files, a new file had
to be created to store the slot assignments for each WAN to avoid
conflicting data.
Dual-WAN slot assignments are stored in the /update/slotAssign-
ments file on the compact flash.
Changes in slot assignments are saved when issued and are immediately
persistent across restarts and power cycles.
Enabling an Ethernet Interface
The Network Configuration screen utilizes the Ethernet Management Ports

The D5 UEQ renders MPEG-2 transport streams over UDP port assign-

Table 2.1). This allows a user to quickly deliver video, by simply entering
the D5 UEQs UDP port numbers on the VoD server. The D5 UEQ takes care

of the details of transporting the MPEG-2 video to the appropriate QAMs.
The following diagram illustrates how a VoD server sends SPTS streams to
STB devices, via the D5 UEQ, using MPEG over UDP.
Figure 8-1: VoD Server, Multiple MPEG TS over UDP to STB
UDP Port Management
Individual transport streams are received on individual UDP ports,
however, multiple transport streams can be received on the same UDP-
port provided that the IP addresses are different when static rules are
configured on a QAM channel, given unique program numbers. The UDP
port number is used to identify which QAM channel to transmit the stream
on, as well as the program number to use when transmitting it. The D5
UEQ employs various techniques for mapping UDP ports to program
numbers including a default mapping. This default mapping can be over-
ridden to map any UDP port to any program number and/or QAM channel.
Default UDP Port Mapping The LEGACY default UDP port mapping supports a mixture of 2x4 or 2x6
modes with 127 UDP ports per QAM channel. The NEW default UDP port
mapping scheme will support a mixture of DPM 4DX2 and DPM 6DX2
modules with 63 UDP ports per QAM channel. The LEGACY scheme is
turned on by default on upgrade from an older software version (Table 8-

1). New installations will default to the NEW default UDP port mapping
scheme (Table 8-2). The UDP port numbers are not tied to a specific QAM
module. They are assigned to a QAM module depending on what slot in
the D5 UEQ chassis the module occupies.

2003-2010 ARRIS Group, Inc.
CLI Controls If you are upgrading your software from Release 2.6, you will end up with
the same default UDP-mapping scheme as you had with Release 2.6
(legacy). However, the legacy scheme is off by default on a new installa-
tion of software.
The default UDP mapping scheme can be controlled from the CLI with the
following commands while in configuration mode:
To enable the new default UDP-mapping scheme, use the following
command:
D5(conf)# video default-mapping-scheme udp
To enable the old legacy default UDP-mapping scheme, use the following
command:
D5(conf)# video default-mapping-scheme udp-legacy
To turn off the default-mapping-scheme, use the following command:
D5(conf)# no video default-mapping-scheme udp-legacy
NOTE
The legacy scheme can be turned on/off globally, but not on a per-QAM
basis because it would create overlapping port ranges resulting in
ambiguous UDP->QAM mappings. If LEGACY mode is turned on globally,
then turning on the default-mapping scheme within a QAM enables
legacy-mode mapping for that QAM rather than enabling the new

mapping scheme (e.g. D5(conf-qam-if)# video default-
mapping-scheme udp).
SNMP Controls The existing MPEG-MGR SNMP tables are largely unaffected by this
change. The addition of four extra channels per card simply means the
addition of extra row entries in the MIB tables.
Defacto Industry Standard
UDP Port Mapping
It is also possible to use an alternate mapping scheme for compatibility
with Harmonic

Edge QAMs. Under this scheme the QAM card is deter-


mined by the destination IP address rather than the UDP port. The QAM
channel and program number is determined by the UDP port, but the
calculation is not the same as for the default UDP mapping scheme.
The UDP port is used as outlined in Defacto Industry Standard UDP Port
Mapping (Decimal) on page 8-8. The scheme uses the following bitmap to
handle incoming UDP traffic where the IP address is used to identify the
particular QAM-card.
Figure 8-2: NSG Port Mapping Scheme
As shown in the diagram above, the NSG port-mapping scheme, by its very
nature, supports no more than eight channels per QAM card. The lowest
bit corresponds to the lowest number QAM channel on the card. The next
higher bit corresponds to the next higher number QAM channel on the card
and so on. The mapping of the bits to QAM channel is outlined in the
following table.

Defacto Industry Standard
Mapping
The defacto industry standard mapping can be configured on a per Gigabit
interface basis as shown in the following command:
D5# configure terminal
D5(config)# interface gigabitethernet 0/1
D5(config-gig-if)# ip address 192.168.250.74
255.255.255.0
D5(config-gig-if)# video emulation-mode bitwise 6
D5(config-gig-if)# no shutdown
D5(config-gig-if)# exit
The number of IP addresses on the CLI command line can be configured
with a value between 1 and 6. A value of 1 means that only one IP address
is created for NSG mode which effectively restricts NSG mode support in
this Gigabit interface to the QAM card in slot 1.
These commands assign IP address 192.168.250.74 to the Gigabit
Ethernet interface and set up six new IP addresses for NSG mode with
contiguous IP addresses offset from the primary interface IP address. With
this configuration, the primary IP interface (IP address 192.168.250.74)
uses the default UDP port mapping scheme but the six additional IP
addresses (192.168.250.75 through 192.168.250.80) use the NSG based
UDP port mapping scheme. In other words, traffic received on
192.168.250.75 is mapped to the QAM card in slot 1; 192.168.250.76 is
mapped to QAM card in slot 2, etc. For example, an SPTS sent to
192.168.250.76:259 is mapped using the NSG scheme to QAM 2/1.1
program 3. It is possible to transmit multiple SPTSs to the primary inter-
face IP address using the default UDP port mapping scheme to a particular
QAM channel while concurrently transmitting SPTS to the same QAM
channel using the NSG based UDP port mapping scheme, so long as the
output program numbers do not clash.

You can also use the hexadecimal table. The hexadecimal fields indicate
the values of the least-significant-byte in the UDP port, which is combined

Configuring Port and
Program Number Mappings
The default UDP port mapping can be overridden to assign specific UDP
ports to programs on a given QAM channel. The command syntax is as
follows:
[no] video udp <> [src-ip <>] [dest-ip <>] program <1-
65535> [use <even | sequential> <1-127>]
For example, by default UDP port 49154 is assigned to QAM 1/1.1 Program
Number 2. However, the following commands assign this port to QAM
1/1.3 and the Program Number remains the default 2 for this port.

Configuring Simultaneous
Ports
It is also convenient to configure several ports at once, for example, RTP
always uses even port numbers (the associated RTCP flow is carried on the
odd port number). It is possible to configure 10 even number ports from
49154 through 49172 to QAM 1/1.3 with the following commands
D5# configure terminal
D5(config)# interface qam 1/1.3
D5(config-subif)# video udp 49154 program 22 use even 10
The Program Numbers used for these would be 22, 23.31. The odd
ports, 49155 through 49171, are not remapped since they do not carry
SPTS streams, in the example they are carrying RTCP.
Configure Ports Per I P
Address
It is possible to perform configuration on a per IP address basis; this caters
for multiple VOD servers. For example, suppose there are two server
1.1.1.1 and 1.1.1.2. To map UDP port 49154 from the first server to QAM
1/1.3 use the following commands.
D5#configure terminal
D5(config)#interface qam 1/1.3
D5(config-subif)#video udp 49154 src-ip 1.1.1.1 program
10
Override Previously Mapped
Program Number
If traffic is received from server 1.1.1.2 then it is still mapped to the
default, QAM 1/1.1 program number 2. This, in turn, can be over-ridden
with the following, to assign it to program number 12 on QAM 1/1.3.
D5#configure terminal
D5(config)#interface qam 1/1.3
D5(config-subif)#video udp 49154 src-ip 1.1.1.2 program
12
Map an I P Multicast to a
QAM channel
Following is an example of mapping an IP multicast to a QAM channel.
D5#configure terminal
D5(config)#interface qam 1/1.1
D5(config-qam-if)#video udp 1111 dest-ip 230.1.0.11
program 12
D5#(config-qam-if)#exit
In this case, the output program number is not reserved. When a stream
is activated that gets matched to this static rule, the program number is
calculated dynamically. This is especially useful where SPTS pass-through
mode is in use on the QAM channel and it may not be desirable to static

limit the UDP port to a specific program number. If SPTS pass-through is
disabled, the dynamic stream is remapped using the default remapping
scheme (e.g. the lower seven bits of the UDP port number are used to
calculate the output program number). This type of static rule can also be
used for IP addresses (e.g. to create a static rule mapping all video traffic
from 10.250.1.1 to QAM 1/1.3).

Overview
In the Digital Video Broadcast (DVB) hierarchy, most services are received
from a satellite at a central headend and scrambled centrally. Each service
is then distributed to each regional headend as a single program transport
stream (SPTS) over IP Multicast. EPG and SI tables are generated centrally
as well and distributed to each regional headend over IP multicast.

9 Digital Video Broadcast
The D5 UEQ can also insert services locally and then scramble and multi-
plex (MUX) them with services received from the central headend prior to
transmission over radio frequency (RF). Each regional headend will typi-
cally deliver 60 to 120 services.
In a broadcast scenario, the D5 UEQ is much more static than it is when
distributing Video on Demand (VoD). That is because the service line-up,
Packet Identifier (PID) usage and most PSI/SI tables are static.
Figure 9-1: Example of DVB Hierarchy
Handling SI Table Streams, Injection and Configuration
DVB-SI tables play an important role in the DVB environment. There are
two methods of inserting SI tables into the D5 UEQ. One is by utilizing the
D5 UEQ Application Manager to create, edit and inject these tables into the
D5 UEQ. The second method is to stream dynamic tables into the D5 UEQ

delivered as MPEG frames encapsulated in UDP packets. They may be
delivered via IP multicast or unicast into each QAM channel from an
external SI table application server where the PAT tables are sent on the
standard-PID (0).
The commands necessary to allow QAM channels to be configured to
handle incoming SI streams are all based on the program number remap
command. This allows the SI stream to be classified by any combination
of source IP address, destination IP address and UDP port and as shown
in the following example:
Procedure 9-1 QAM Setup for SI Table Streams
1 To configure SI table streams, enter the QAM subinterface mode.
D5#configure terminal
D5(config)#interface qam 6/1.1
2 Configure a QAM channel and a video UDP port as well as a destination IP
address.
D5(config-qam-if)#video udp 5000 src-ip N.N.N.N dest-ip
10.250.24.51 si-stream
End of procedure
In the following example, the IP address 10.250.24.51 is the IP address of
the gigabitEthernet port on the D5 UEQ and N.N.N.N is the IP address of
the server generating the SI stream and allows the SI stream to be classi-
fied by UDP port plus a source IP address and/or a destination IP address.
Note the SI stream for QAM 6/1.1 is configured to be from N.N.N.N to
10.250.24.51 on UDP port 5000:
D5#configure terminal
D5(config)#interface qam 6/1.1
D5(config-qam-if)#video udp 5000 src-ip N.N.N.N dest-ip
10.250.24.51 si-stream

SI Table Editing with the PSI Wizard
The D5 UEQ provides the ability to edit and configure simple static SI
tables using the Application Manager (see the D5 UEQ Application
Manager) to edit the tables. This feature is called the PSI Wizard. It
supports the creation, import/export and storage of the following eight
table types:
PAT
PMT
CAT
SDT-Actual
SDT-Other
NIT
TOT
TDT
Table injection is done via the PSIG<=>MUX interface. The PSI Wizard will
allow the user to create a PSIG interface on the D5 UEQ to accept table
injection from a dedicated host (source IP Address) or from any host. It
also allows the user to configure the QAM channel video attributes to auto-
inject or force inject plus set transmission intervals.
NOTE
Although the TDT and the TOT tables are not actually static tables (as
they contain current system time and need to be periodically updated),
the D5 UEQ handles them internally as static tables and updates them
automatically.

PSIG<>Configuration & Monitoring
The configuration of (P)SIG clients on the D5 UEQ is very similar to config-
uring EIS clients (see Chapter 12, Conditional Access). Multiple PSIGs can
be configured, each with a unique name.
Procedure 9-2 PSI G Configuration
A basic CAS (P)SIG configuration might be as follows where:
PSIG 1 = IP address 192.168.250.24 port 2000
PSIG 2 = port 2001
1 Configure PSIG called ArrisPSIG1:
(config)#video psig ArrisPSIG1
2 Enable the PSIG interface with the following command:
(config-psig)#no shutdown
3 Set up the IP address 192.168.250.100 and port number 2000:
(config-psig)#ip address 192.168.250.100
(config-psig)#port 2000
4 Exit the configuration to save:
(config-psig)#exit
5 Set up the PSIG called ArrisPSIG2 with the following command:
(config)#video psig ArrisPSIG2
6 Save the configuration
(config-psig)#no shutdown
7 Assign the port number 2001:
(config-psig)#port 2001
8 Exit the configuration to save:
(config-psig)#exit

Procedure 9-3 PSIG Client Deletion
1 To delete the previously configured PSIGs use the following command:
D5#(config)# no video psig [<name>]
2 To display the currently configured client, use the following command:
D5# show video psig [<name>]
End of procedure
Other useful PSIG commands include:
D5# clear video psig active sections
Deletes all current PSIG output tables being transmitted on the QAM chan-
nels.
D5# show video psig active sections
Displays all current PSIG output tables being transmitted on the QAM
channels.
Table 9-2: PI SG <> MUX Command Set
Table 9-3:
Command Description
[no] video psig
<name>
This command is applicable only in configuration mode. It will create an instance
of a (P)SIG with the associated name if it does not already exist and will cause
the CLI to enter (P)SIG configuration mode.
[no] ip address <ip>
This command is available only in the (P)SIG configuration mode and assigns a
source IP address to the (P)SIG. The D5 UEQ will only accept connections from
that IP address for the given (P)SIG. The no version of the command will delete
the assigned IP address.
[no] port <port>
This command is available only in the (P)SIG configuration mode and assigned
a destination TCP port to the (P)SIG. The D5 UEQ will listen on that port for
incoming (P)SIG connections. The no version of the command will delete the
assigned TCP port.
[no] shutdown
This command is available on in the (P)SIG configuration mode. This will cause
the (P)SIG configuration to be put into an administratively down state. In this
state the D5 UEQ will refuse connection attempts. The no version of the
command will put the (P)SIG configuration in an administratively up state.
show video psig
[<name>]
These commands are available in Privilege mode and will display the
configuration of a given (P)SIG when the optional name is specified, or will
display that of all (P)SIGs when the optional name is omitted.

PSI Table Auto-Generation
By default, the D5 UEQ generates PSI tables automatically for each QAM
channel MPTS. Some broadcast applications will inject the PSI tables stat-
ically. To accommodate, the D5 UEQ will allow the automatic generation
of PSI tables to be enabled and disabled. Since it is possible to enable and
disable the generation of output PSI tables on a per-QAM basis, or globally,
the following table defines the rules for the possible configurations.
NOTE
Care should be taken when using video generate-psi/si commands so that
the setting does not cause duplicate PSI/SI tables to be transmitted
downstream. Duplicate tables may cause customer set-top boxes to crash
or experience loss of service.
The [no] video generate-psi command is applicable in QAM
Channel (Sub-interface) Configuration mode as well as Global
Configuration mode. When applied globally, these commands will apply to
all QAM channels where no previous setting was applied. If enabled or
disabled on a specific QAM channel, it will turn on/off the automatic
generation of PSI tables on the specified channel and will override any
global setting. To disable PSI table generation, use the no version of the
command.
Procedure 9-4 Configuring And Monitoring PSI Table Generation
These commands allow a user to configure automatic PSI generation glob-
ally or on a per QAM basis. The configuration at the QAM level takes
priority over the global configuration setting:

SPTS Pass-Through
In SPTS pass-through operating mode the D5 UEQ will not remap PIDs
and will not remap program numbers. It also does not automatically pass-
through all defined DVB-SI PIDs, rather it merely processes PSI tables in
the REMUX mode since the incoming SPTSs have been lined-up in such a
manner that they will not cause overlapping PID and program numbers.
SPTS pass-through mode is configured either on a per-QAM channel basis
or globally. SPTS pass-through mode uses any configured or default
mapping rules when determining the destination QAM channel for an
incoming SPTS.
The MPEG Manager will reject an incoming SPTS when it determines that
there is a PID or program number conflict caused by overlapping PIDs or
program numbers. An SNMP event is generated when this occurs.
The MPEG Manager performs PSI table processing normally when in SPTS
pass-through mode. PMT tables are generated by the MPEG Manager as
in the REMUX mode.
Video Pass-through Automatic PSI generation can also be configured globally or on a per QAM
basis. The configuration at the QAM level takes priority over the global
configuration setting. The video pass-through command is configured at the
QAM sub-interface level for SPTS pass through.
When applied globally these commands will apply to all QAM channels
where no previous setting was applied
Show Command Set The output from the show interface qam x/y.z video command will indicate
when video pass-through has been enabled for a QAM channel.

MPTS Pass-Through
In the case of MPTS pass-through, DVB-SI information is simply forwarded
through the D5 UEQ. The D5 UEQ supports MPTS IP streams in a limited
form, by allowing the operator to configure a QAM channel and dedicate it
to a particular input stream, which may be an MPTS.
Figure 9-2: D5 UEQ MPTS Pass-Through
In pass-through mode, the default remapping rules for PID and program
numbers are ignored. The MPTS is instead remapped to identical output
PIDs and programs. Rather than calculating new output PAT and PMT
output tables, the D5 UEQ creates cloned copies of the input PAT and PMT
tables to transmit downstream, so that the PSI information present in the
MPTS is preserved on the QAM.

Procedure 9-5 Enable MPTS Pass-Through Mode
In this example the DVB MPTS Pass-Through mode is configured on QAM
1/1.1. The transport stream is delivered to destination UDP port 593, at
destination IP address 10.250.0.6, from source IP address 10.250.0.5.

End of procedure
Filtering MPTS in Non Pass-Through Mode
By default, a stream is configured as an SPTS and the program that is
picked by the D5 UEQ is dictated by the first PMT received. If the user has
MPTS with several programs and wants to filter (or block) a specific
program (#112 in our example below), you will need to do the following:
Procedure 9-6 MPTS Filtering
Set the stream as SI stream. Virtual programs cannot be filtered.
To configure SI table streams:
1 Enter the QAM subinterface mode:
D5#configure terminal
D5(config)#interface qam 1/2.2
2 Configure a QAM channel and a video UDP port as well as a destination IP
address:
D5(config-qam-if)#video udp 1134 src-ip 76.59.192.74
dest-ip 239.193.140.33 si-stream

3 Set up filter rules to the programs the user wants to block:
D5(config-qam-if)#video filter-program 112
A filter needs to be set up for each program the user wants to block.
End of procedure
Use the following command to view the current video filters:

Handling Pre-scrambled Content
The D5 UEQ is capable of handling pre-scrambled DVB-Simulcrypt content.
It will automatically detect pre-scrambled content in an incoming transport
stream due to the presence of a CA_Descriptor in the CAT and/or PMT
tables. These tables along with associated, scrambled, and Elementary
Stream tables will be forwarded through the D5 UEQ without any changes.
The D5 UEQ will generate an appropriate output CAT table containing
more than one CA_Descriptor when it detects different super_CAS_ids in
9-16 ARRIS PROPRIETARY All Rights Reserved J uly 22, 2010
2003-2010 ARRIS Group, Inc.
9 Digital Video Broadcast
the CA_Descriptors of incoming CAT tables. The D5 UEQ will also handle
the presence of EMM tables in pre-scrambled streams. When two or more
transport streams are scrambled using the same super_CAS_id and also
contain EMM tables on the same PID, then those EMM tables are assumed
to be the same and only one copy will be transmitted to the output QAM
channel.
Video Session PSI Show Command
The output from the show video session psi command indicates the presence
of pre-scrambled content in the incoming transport streams. For example,
below the output from the show video session psi command shows the pres-
ence of a CA Descriptor in the PMT for the transport stream on UDP port
59393. This command will not attempt to show the presence of any CAT
or ECM tables.

Overview
The D5 UEQ IGMP client can be employed in the network architecture
either by directly connecting the D5 UEQ to a video server or remotely
connecting via a switch, series of switches, routers or a combination
thereof. This document will explain how the mulitcasted video traffic will
be transported to the individual QAM channels.

10 IGMP Client
The D5 UEQ IGMP client is fully compliant with the IGMPv3 host specifica-
tion (unless stated otherwise) and is fully backward compatible with earlier
version queriers and hosts. IGMPv3 allows the user to specify Source
Specific Multicast (SSM) entries as well as Any Source Multicast (ASM)
entries. ASM entries are denoted using a '*' for the source address.
NOTE
The IGMP client operates on either a gigabit subinterface or a loopback
subinterface that is a member of a port-channel. It does not operate on
any fastethernet ports. There are a maximum of 1488 groups that can be
configured on the D5 UEQ system. A group can only be configured
against a single subinterface. Enabling IGMP on a subinterface enables
the processing of IGMP packets (when a query is received, the client will
send reports for the corresponding group(s)). If IGMP is disabled, then all
IGMP queries are dropped by the client and the client wont generate any
IGMP packets. When a group is statically configured on a subinterface,
packets destined to the multicast address will not be filtered on the
subinterface whether IGMP is enabled or disabled on that subinterface.

Limitations
The following list describes some of the limitations in the current D5 UEQ
release:
1 A multicast group can be configured on a multiple interface if:
a The source IP address and destination IP address are not configured
against any interface (e.g. configuring {1.1.1.1, 225.0.0.1} on GigE 2
when {1.1.1.1, 225.0.0.1} is already configured on GigE 1), and
b There is no IGMP group with the same destination IP address and no
source address specified on any interface (e.g. configuring {1.1.1.,
225.0.0.1} on GigE 2 when {*, 225.0.0.1} is already configured on
GigE 1), or
c There is no IGMP group with the same destination IP address on any
interface and the group being configured has no source IP specified

Overview
The ARRIS D5 Universal Edge QAM (UEQ) Software first delivered QAM
sharing of digital broadcast and unicast Video on Demand (VoD) services
on a single Edge Device. Release 2.2 extended QAM sharing support on
the D5 UEQ with the addition of Switched Digital Video (SDV) functionality
using Generic QAM Interface SDV Protocol. Release 2.3 extended its posi-
tion to all SDV architectures by supporting Real-Time Streaming Protocol
(RTSP) for SDV applications. SDV is an economical option for reclaiming
spectral bandwidth. To free additional bandwidth for additional content
and services with SDV, broadcast channels are switched on to the network
only when they are requested by one or more subscribers.

Procedure 11-2 Configure the SDV RPC I nterface
Following is the command to configure the SDV RPC interface:
D5(config)# video sdv rpc [dncs-compatibitility-mode |
master-srm <N.N.N.N> <tcp | udp> | persistent | qam-
model <2x4-qam | 2x6-qam | 4x8-qam> | reset-indicator
interval <1-20> | timeout <default | 0-65535>]
Where: dncs-compatibility-mode = The Master SRM for Edge
Reset Indications.
master-srm <N.N.N.N> = The Master SRM for Edge Reset
using the Master SRM IP address and tcp | udp = Protocol
persistent = Sets the client connection to persistent
qam-model = Sets the QAM-model to either the 2X4-QAM,
2X6-QAM or the 4X8-QAM
reset-indicator interval = Sets the SDV RPC reset-indicator
interval in seconds. Valid range is 1-20 seconds
timeout = Sets the SDV RPC timeout back to the default or
sets it in a range of 0-65535 milliseconds.
Follow these steps to turn on the SDV RPC interface:
1 Enter configuration mode by typing the following:
D5#configure terminal

11 Switched Digital Video
2 Turn on the SDV RPC interface with the following command:
D5(config)#video sdv rpc
3 (Optional) Some Master SRM devices also expect the D5 UEQ to generate
a Reset Indicator message. This is accomplished with the following
command:
D5(config)# video sdv rpc master-srm <ip-address> <tcp
| udp>
End of procedure
NOTE
In SDV deployments, other headend systems such as the SDV Manager
and/or the SRM, will need to be set up by the operator to match the
configurations of the D5 UEQ systems in use. For example, these systems
will need to know whether the D5 UEQ is operating in Dual, Quad, or
Hex-channel or Octal mode. It is very important that the actual D5 UEQ
configurations match the configurations set up on these other systems. If
this is not done accurately, then SDV may not operate correctly, or may
not operate at all.

Release 3.0.1 ARRIS PROPRIETARY All Rights Reserved 12-3
2003-2010 ARRIS Group, Inc.
The CAS configuration Command Line Interface (CLI) is based on the
concept of interfaces similar to those for Ethernet ports and QAM channels.
The interface CLI for each CAS Server Interface is session based. No two
CLI sessions are able to configure the same server interface at the same
time. The configuration is only applied when the CLI session is completed
with the exit command.
Each configured Element Control Message Generator (ECMG), Entitlement
Management Message Generator (EMMG) and Event Information System
(EIS) forms a CAS server on the D5 UEQ and has a unique name. No two
similar types of CAS servers can have the same name however, a different
type (ECMG, an EIS and an EMMG) could all have the same name.
Each CAS server can be in an administrative up or down state. The no
shutdown and shutdown commands are utilized to initiate these states.
Setting a server to admin down will cause any associated channels and
streams to be deleted. Each server also has an operational state (referred
to in the show commands as line protocol) which indicates a connected
channel. Up means the channel is connected while down means no
channel is connected.
There are restrictions placed on what can be configured on a CAS server
when it is in the admin up state, for example, the super-CAS-id (or CA-
system-id, or client-id) cannot be changed until the server is set to admin
down. The same applies to IP configuration.
Basic CAS Configuration A basic CAS configuration can be accomplished in the following manner:
Basic CAS Configuration To setup a basic CAS configuration it is
necessary to configure a video channel container, the ECMG, EMMG and
the EIS. The procedure is as follows:
ECMG = super-CAS-id 0x18000002, IP address 192.168.250.22 Port 6000
EMMG = client-id 0x18000001, TCP Port 5555 (or UDP Port 5555)
EIS = IP address 192.168.250.23 Port 5000

EMMG Configuration
The EMMG interface supports two modes of operation, namely promis-
cuous mode and restricted mode. Which mode is used depends on
whether you specify an IP address along with the port definition. TCP-
only, UDP-only and TCP/UDP port specifications are supported. The
default format is mpeg-section and the default data-type is EMM.
To define an EMMG interface that uses TCP Port 2222 for control
and UDP Port 3333 for entitlement data use the following
example configuration:
D5# configure terminal
D5(config)#video channel-container cn
D5(config-video-channel)#channel qam 6/1.1
D5(config-video-channel)#exit
D5(config)#video emmg emmg

To define an EMMG interface that uses UDP port 4444 for control
and entitlement data from EMMG server 1.2.3.4 only, use the
following example configuration
D5# configure terminal
D5(config)#video emmg emmg
D5(config-emmg)#shutdown
D5(config-emmg)#exit

EMMG Show Command Set The EMMG show commands display the basic configuration of the EMMG
and some counters that are cumulative, for example, the Total Channels
value is not the current number of channels (which would be always 0 or
1) but the number of channels that have ever been opened on the EMMG.
This concept applies to all counters. Even if the EMMG channel closes, the
counters still retain their values. Setting the EMMG to admin down resets
the counters. Data_channel_id and Active time are 0 because there is no
channel connected (line protocol is down).

ECMG Configuration
The ECMG is unlike all other CAS servers in that it is a server in the tradi-
tional sense. The D5 UEQ connects to it unlike EMMG, EIS, Program
Specific Information Generator (P)SIG and other CAS servers who connect
to the D5 UEQ instead. When configuring the ECMG it is mandatory to
specify the TCP address as well as the TCP port. Multiple ECMGs can have

Release 3.0.1 ARRIS PROPRIETARY All Rights Reserved 12-9
2003-2010 ARRIS Group, Inc.
the same super_CAS_id. Multiples can also be assigned to a Redundancy
Group. Setting an ECMG to admin down will delete all ECM Streams asso-
ciated with it causing the ECM Streams to go to an extended Crypto-Period
or possibly be re-assigned to another ECMG, if they are setup in a redun-
dant configuration. Restrictions apply to what can be changed in the
configuration of an admin up ECMG. For example, the Redundant Group,
TCP configuration and the super_CAS_id cannot be changed in an admin
up ECMG.
Use the following command to set the ECMG:
D5(config)#video ecmg <name>
Sharing ECMG Servers It is possible to use the same ECMG Server to provide CAS support on more
than one D5 UEQ. When this configuration is required, each D5 UEQ needs
to have a unique scs_id. This identifier is used to ensure that the
ecmg_stream_id created by each D5 UEQ is unique.
In the following example, two D5 UEQs, with host names D5-One and
D5-Two respectively, sharing the same ECMG, would be configured with
unique scs_ids using the following commands:
D5-One# config terminal
D5-One(config)# video scs-id 1
D5-One(config)# exit
D5-Two# config terminal
D5-Two(config)# video scs-id 2
D5-Two(config)# exit
The complete set of configuration commands are as follows:

cally sent on every open channel every 10 seconds and stream_test
messages are sent if an ECM_response is missed.

EIS Configuration
Typically there are either 0 or 1 EISs configured on the D5 UEQ. The
configuration is very simple in that only the TCP port needs to be config-
ured and then brought into an admin up state. Extra care should be taken
when setting the admin state to down as it will delete any SCGs provi-
sioned on the D5 UEQ through that EIS thereby causing all associated
services to be unscrambled.
EI S redundancy The D5 UEQ acts as the server for EIS connections.
Once the identifiers are used consistently between EISs (e. g. ecm_id,
etc), multiple EISs may provision/deprovision the same scrambling group.
Link redundancy for an EIS connection may be achieved through the use
of virtual interfaces.

Redundancy Group Configuration
A redundancy group is a collection of ECMGs used for redundancy. All must
have the same CA_system_id. The group also defines the redundancy
policy (like load balancing off/on). When load balancing is on, the D5
UEQ will attempt to balance the number of ECM Streams on each primary
ECMG in the group. Some ECMG may have higher stream limits than others
and this is taken into account when load balancing. Secondary ECMGs is
the group that will only be used when no primary has available capacity.
Admin down means the assigned ECMGs will ignore the redundancy config
and behave as if not assigned to a group.

The complete set of Redundancy Group commands are as follows:
Table 12-4: Redundancy Group Command Set

Typically there are 0, 1 or 2 (P)SIG's configured on the D5 UEQ. The
configuration consists of the TCP port, IP address and admin up state.
Extra care should be taken when setting the admin state to down
as it will delete all channels and streams provisioned on the D5
UEQ through the (P)SI G and wont stop the carouselling of any
sections that have been provisioned, resulting in closing the
connection with the PSI G. Typically, it is the (P)SIGs job to establish
and close all connections between it and the MUX.

DVB Simulcrypt Configuration
The D5 UEQ SimulCrypt feature supports session based encryption for VoD
and Broadcast traffic passing through the D5 UEQ Edge QAM. Since an
operators fully integrated DVB SimulCrypt deployment may consist of
various components (such as the EIS, which can be provided by many 3rd
party vendors) the D5 UEQs Simulcrypt feature handles multiple versions
of the DVB Simulcrypt standard utilized by proprietary CAS interface
suppliers. For example, if a proprietors EIS system uses a different version
of the DVB Simulcrypt standard to trigger encryption sessions with the D5
UEQ, that standard is handled seamlessly.
The D5 UEQ is primarily concerned with the generation of CWs, scram-
bling MPEG streams and ensuring proper timing synchronization between
ECM messages and MPEG scrambling

Configuration
The D5 UEQ DVB SimulCrypt feature contains extensive CLI support to
configure and monitor the operation of the major components that
comprise the feature. The different areas are EIS, ECMG, EMMG/PDG,
CWG, Scrambler and Synchronizer. They all have CLI commands to control
their operation.
An example of a basic setup follows:

13 Redundancy
This document describes the HOT/HOT redundancy feature, the changes
required to implement it, and how this differs from the HOT/WARM redun-
dancy provided in release 2.3. HOT/HOT redundancy will be available
when configuring video sessions for both GQI(RCP) and RTSP video
session setup modes. Although this document only deals with multicast
sessions, unicast sessions are also possible but they effectively will always
be HOT/HOT.
The number of QAM channels available on a QAM card increases from 8 to
32 and on a fully loaded D5 UEQ from 48 to 96. This is a potential output
capacity of over four Gigabits while our input capacity is limited to four
Gigabits. This becomes an important factor especially in HOT/HOT redun-
dancy if each stream has one available redundant source, as the D5 UEQ
will then be only able to handle two Gigabits of unique streams assuming
the redundant stream is of equal bandwidth to the first.
Since the ERM will be responsible for not oversubscribing the input
capacity, the D5 UEQ will be able to ensure that QAM output capacity is
not oversubscribed.
HOT/ WARM Redundancy
In HOT/WARM redundancy mode, the session manager receives a session
setup either from GQI(RPC) or RTSP. If the information is valid, the session
manager passes on the information to the IGMP task and the MpegMgr.
ARRI S D5 Universal Edge QAM
Release 3.0.1 ARRIS PROPRIETARY All Rights Reserved 13-3
2003-2010 ARRIS Group, Inc.
The IGMP task sends tries to join one stream at a time and configures a
single multicast filter rule that allows that single stream through an input
port; each rule is enabled for a CLI configurable period called the source
timeout (which is 750ms by default).
Figure 13-1: Example of HOT/ WARM Redundancy
As a result of this single rule, only one multicast stream for each session
will ever be seen on the input ports. In HOT/WARM, the first detected
stream is enabled.
HOT/ HOT Redundancy
Although HOT/WARM is available and is the current default mode,
HOT/HOT redundancy has been added. In HOT/HOT mode, the most
significant difference from HOT/WARM is that IGMP will configure all multi-
cast filter rules, associated with a session, simultaneously and attempt to
join all of them, causing the multicast traffic from each transport to be sent
to the D5 UEQ. A single SDV stream in HOT/HOT can generate two or more
times the bandwidth of that stream arriving at the input of the D5 UEQ.
In this mode, the MPEG manager will notify the session manager of all
available streams that correspond to a configured session. The session
manager will then select the stream based on priority, with a CLI configu-

rable choice of policy. The first policy will be to wait until the highest
priority stream becomes available within the session timeout interval; the
second mode of selection would be to select the first available stream.
If a stream fails and the D5 UEQ needs to generate a switchover to a
redundant source in HOT/HOT, this will require the triggering of a rule
change. In HOT/WARM, IGMP needs to send a join for the redundant
stream at failover time.
Figure 13-2: Example of HOT/ HOT Redundancy
HOT/HOT will be available as an option for both RTSP and GQI(RCP). If
HOT/HOT is enabled, the order is the priority.
Although the GQI(RCP) specification doesnt allow an input Gigabit port to
be specified, the D5 UEQ has been designed to work as follows. If the
output port is on the first three QAM cards, the D5 UEQ searchs for the
stream on Gigabit 1 and a backup source on Gigabit 3. If the output port
is on the second 3 QAM cards, then similarly Gigabit 2 and Gigabit 4 are
used.
Once a session has been setup and is running and has failed over to a
backup stream, a CLI command will send that session back to the primary
stream. No automatic method will be provided on the D5 UEQ.

1 The following command will allow global redundancy mode to be set to
either HOT/WARM or HOT/HOT:
D5(config)#video sdv policy-active [hot-hot/hot-warm]
The global redundancy mode default is set at hot-warm.
2 The following command allows configuration of the setup transport
selection behavior:
D5(config)#video sdv session setup-policy [wait-for-
primary | first-available]
In wait-for-primary, the D5 UEQ will wait for the session-timeout time of
the primary stream to be detected. If the primary does not become avail-
able, then the highest priority backup stream will be selected. This is the
default action.
In first-available, the D5 UEQ will stop waiting as soon as any of the trans-
ports are detected and then the first detected stream will be made active
3 The following command allows the user to manually set a session to the
primary transport. This is intended to be used after a session has failed
over to a backup stream and the operator wants to revert to the primary
transport.
D5(config)#video sdv session [session ID] switch-to-
primary
The sessionID for RTSP will be typically an eight digit number and for
GQI(RCP) it is a ten character dot-separated hex string (e.g.
ABC100.2000).
Redundant Stream Groups
The current D5 UEQ supports HOT/HOT and HOT/WARM redundancy
options through the use of the NGOD R6 RTSP protocol. This protocol
relies on the use of multiple MulticastTransportHeaders to identify input IP
multicast streams, one of which will be forwarded as an output program
to a QAM channel. The D5 UEQ has supported HOT/HOT and HOT/WARM
redundancy internally as of Release 2.4.
The current stream management on the D5 UEQ is based on setting a
stream classifier and supplying a method to apply to the stream when it is
delivered, e.g.
video udp <454> src-ip 1.1.1.1 dest-ip 1.1.1.1 virtual-prog <channel-container>
This section introduces a new video redundant-stream <name>
command. The command enables a list of stream classifiers to be used in
place of the current classifier single input command available, for example,
13-6 ARRIS PROPRIETARY All Rights Reserved J uly 22, 2010
2003-2010 ARRIS Group, Inc.
13 Redundancy
video [udp <454> src-ip 1.1.1.1 dest-ip 1.1.1.1] virtual-prog <channel-container |
qam>
is equivalent to
video [redundant-stream 'super_str'] virtual-prog <channel-container |qam>
The new command enables multiple, input stream definitions to be asso-
ciated together, for redundancy reasons, and activated for forwarding.
All the existing options available with the video udp <> command apply
to the video redundant-stream <> command, and are not expected
to change. The active stream, as described in the HOT/HOT HOT/WARM
section, is the stream that the existing video udp <> command options
will apply to.
The redundant-stream refers to a named redundant-stream-group that
contains the list of video input classifiers to use for the video sources, for
example,
video redundant-stream 'super_str'[channel-container
<> | qam <x/y.z>]
video redundant-stream-group 'super_str'
are equivalent to:
D5(config-stream)#video udp <port> src-ip <addr} dest-ip <addr>
The redundant-stream-group configuration menu also includes some
policy definitions. These allow for particular behavior of the redundant-
stream-groups to be manually configured.
The policy active <hot-hot | hot-warm> option determines how
the multiple video input classifiers should be treated. The default is hot-
warm. The hot-hot option indicates that all video sources will be
requested to be delivered to the D5 UEQ, but only a single video source
will be marked as active and forwarded. In the case of multicast video
sources, the D5 UEQ must issue IGMP J oins for all video sources. In the
case of unicast video sources, it is expected that the default behavior will
be hot-hot.
The hot-warm option indicated that only a single video source will be
delivered to the D5 UEQ at a time, and this video source will be considered
the active source. If, after a configurable amount of time (switch-over
<ms>), the active video source is determined to have failed, the D5 UEQ
is expected to switch over to the next available video source. This
approach is repeated as different video sources fail and will eventually
return to the first video source in the list.
ARRI S D5 Universal Edge QAM
Release 3.0.1 ARRIS PROPRIETARY All Rights Reserved 13-7
2003-2010 ARRIS Group, Inc.
The policy switch-over <ms> option determines the switch over
time that is used to identify when an active video source is no longer
active, and a switch over is necessary. There is a default switch-over of
750ms.

QAM Redundancy
Release 3.0 and 3.0.1
QAM Redundancy is not supported across QAMs allocated to different
WANs in dual-wan mode. It will only be supported on identical QAM type
cards (e.g. a QPM can be a spare for a QPM and a DPM can be a spare for
a DPM) assigned to the same WAN.
Release 2.6 and earlier
In Release 2.6, the D5 UEQ introduced QAM redundancy in multiple fail-
over configurations using Dual-Port QAM Modules (DPM 4DX2) in Quad
Mode and/or Dual-Port QAM Modules (DPM 6DX2) in Hex Mode with a
single WAN. QAM redundancy is not currently supported with the Quad-
Port QAM Module (QPM 8DX4) with Dual WANs. Of the many configura-
tions that may be used, ARRIS has tested and recommends the following
scenarios:
Three sparing groups configured as 1:1
Two sparing groups configured as 2:1
One sparing group configured as 5:1
The following sections will illustrate these sparing groups.
NOTE
In figures 12-3, 12-4, 12-5, and 12-6, the P signifies the primary and the

End of procedure
QAM cards 1, 2, 3 are part of a spare-group whose spare is QAM 1. The
D5 UEQ spare card does not need to be the first card in the spare group
(as shown by the second spare group in the example) which identifies QAM
6 as the spare and whose members also contain QAM 4 and QAM 5. The
D5 UEQ provides both a 1:1 (one spare card for each active card) and a
1:N (one spare card for multiple active cards) redundancy mechanism.
The spare QAM card may be configured for three different levels of readi-
ness:
Cold Standby The spare is basically powered off in order to save on
component wear. Switch-over time to the spare, however, is the slowest
of the three readiness levels. The QAM manager would have to program
the spare card from scratch using the configuration from the failed primary
card. The target outage duration is in the order of 10 to 15 seconds.
Busy Standby The spare is fully active using its own custom configu-
ration and may be passing traffic, which will be interrupted when a primary
card fails and will be restored when the primary is recovered. This mode
allows a user to make use of spare card using traffic of lower importance.
Switch-over time is slower than Hot standby and the target outage dura-
tion is approximately 2 to 15 seconds.
ARRI S D5 Universal Edge QAM
Release 3.0.1 ARRIS PROPRIETARY All Rights Reserved 13-11
2003-2010 ARRIS Group, Inc.
Hot Standby The spare configuration is identical to the primary card
with the exception of the RF output which would be disabled to avoid RF
interference. Since the spare would not be passing any custom traffic, this
mode allows preparing a spare card for fast switch-over. The target outage
duration is in the order of less than one second if active RF switching is
used, less than three seconds if passive RF switching is used.
On the D5 UEQ, there are no significant differences between 1:1 and 1:N
redundancy modes as far as hardware or software support is concerned.
Typically, 1:1 redundancy is chosen over 1:N for its higher availability but
also for faster switchover. Therefore, Hot Standby is suited for 1:1 redun-
dancy where Cold or Busy Standby are more suitable for 1:N redundancy
scenarios.
Cold Standby is demonstrated in the above example by QAM 1 configura-
tion, the card is disabled by the shutdown command, which for the latest
DRFI QAM board will be equivalent to powering it off. On the other hand,
the D5 UEQ CLI does not provide any explicit means to configure busy or
Hot Standby mode. A user is free to configure a spare group to contain one
spare and one primary (hot 1:1 redundancy) and to manually tune the
spare configuration to match the primary (for Hot Standby).
Failover Procedure
In a properly configured spare group, an active card must have at least
one QAM channel enabled for traffic (although traffic may not be passing
at the time of switching) to be allowed to fail over to the spare card.
Failover can be triggered manually by shutting down a primary card or by
removing it from a chassis. Automatic failover happens when a hardware
fault is detected by either the QAM manager on the WAN card or the Envi-
ronment manager on the MON card.
Typical faults are as follows:
Card is powered down due to exceeded environment thresholds.
MUX FPGA heartbeat fails
Monitored RF power output is too low.
On the contrary, no automatic failover will be performed on traffic prob-
lems such as video oversubscription, buffer overflows or underflows, etc.
In order to switch over a failed primary card to its spare, the QAM manager
performs the following procedure:
1 Spare QAM interfaces are marked as shutdown if they were active and
notified as such to listeners such as the MPEG manager which will
discontinue all video traffic to spare if necessary.

13 Redundancy
2 The spare QAM card is reconfigured using primary card configuration, only
differences are applied.
3 A MAC address change notification will be sent to listeners regarding
primary card interfaces which is now the MAC address of the spare card.
On receipt of the change, the MPEG manager will reprogram the IPPROC
FPGA on the WAN card using the new MAC address. This will redirect all
video streams from the failed primary card to the spare card. The MPEG
manager may also need to reconfigure explicit stream settings on the
spare card such as latency queues.
Once the primary card is switched over, all but its QAM channel interfaces
are seen as shutdown on SNMP/CLI or other user interfaces. Similarly, on
the spare card, all but its QAM interfaces are in service and the running
configuration is left unchanged. By using the shutdown command
(manual failback mode), the running configuration of the failed card is
changed to force it out-of-service. User interaction would be required to
bring the QAM card in the failed slot back to in-service level. Alternatively,
automatic failback is performed whenever the primary card fault is cleared,
usually when the card is replaced.
Manual failback mode is configured on the CLI by using the manual qual-
ifier on the spare-group command; automatic failback mode is configured
using the auto qualifier. This is respectively demonstrated in above
example by QAM 1 and QAM 6 spare groups.
While in a 1:N sparing mode, only one QAM card can be switched over. If
another card fails while the spare is switched over, it will be put out of
service, notified as such and will not automatically failover to the spare
card even if the latter reverts to stand-by afterward. Similarly, if the spare
card hardware is missing or has failed, then failover mode will be disabled.
As long as it is unavailable, redundancy is disabled.
Failback procedure
The spare card will manage the services of a failed primary card as long
as it is out of service. However, it may be desirable to bring the replace-
ment primary card online without recovering the spare card, in order to
test it. This can be achieved by taking the replacement card out of the
spare group before bringing it online by using the no spare-group
command in the card configuration. While the card is out of the spare
group, the user is free to configure in any way s/he wishes, typically to test
its RF while not interfering with the spare. However traffic will not be
allowed through until the spare card is recovered. Once the replacement
card is reinserted into a spare group and is online, traffic will again be
allowed.
In order to switch a spare card back to an online card, the QAM manager
performs the following procedure:
ARRI S D5 Universal Edge QAM
Release 3.0.1 ARRIS PROPRIETARY All Rights Reserved 13-13
2003-2010 ARRIS Group, Inc.
1 A MAC address change notification will be sent to listeners regarding
primary card interfaces, which is now the MAC address of the replacement
card. On receipt of the change, the MPEG manager will re-program the
IPPROC FPGA on the WAN card using the new MAC address. This has the
effect to re-direct all video streams from spare card to replacement card
instantaneously.
2 The QAM manager will mute the spare card RF, reconfigure it using its
original configuration, which will activate the QAM interfaces.
If passive RF combining and manual failback mode is used, there is a
possibility that both the spare and primary card RF signals may overlay for
a brief instant. If the spare card fails or is manually shutdown while in
failover mode, traffic will automatically failback to the primary, even if the
card is out-of-service, in which case traffic will be interrupted and listeners
would be notified which may redistribute video streams to a different D5
UEQ or a different QAM card.

13 Redundancy
GigabitEthernet (GE) MAC Redundancy
The GE MAC Redundancy feature developed for the D5 UEQ in Release 2.6
provided a mechanism to use an unused gigabitEthernet port as a backup
for active gigabitEthernet ports. With four gigabitEthernet ports on the D5
UEQ, it was possible to operate a number of different sparing options, e.g.,
1:1, 2:1, 3:1 and 2x 1:1. The MAC Redundancy feature is transparent to
the services running on the D5 UEQ, meaning that it can be applied to
VOD, SDV (RPC/NGOD), BCAST, and DOCSIS/DEPI applications.
Each of the four gigabitEthernet ports on the D5 UEQ have full Ethernet
MAC functionality. When a gigabitEthernet port is used as a spare, it must
be connected to the same switch/vlan as the gigabitEthernet ports it is
sparing for. The MAC redundancy feature is configured through the use of
the ip bundle gigabitethernet x/y command entered on any
active gigabitEthernet port.
Procedure 14 Configuring gigabitEthernet Redundancy
The D5 UEQ supports 1+1 gigabitEthernet redundancy to match the 1+1
redundancy options available on some M-CMTS cores. When using the
redundancy option, the primary gigabitEthernet port is configured as
normal with IP address details, etc.
To enable redundancy, the ip bundle command is used to explicitly
nominate the backup gigabitEthernet port by specifying the correct giga-
bitEthernet interface.
D5(config)#interface gigabitethernet 0/1
D5(config-gig-if)#ip bundle gigabitethernet 0/2
D5(config-gig-if)#exit
D5(config)#
The configuration can be removed simply by issuing a no ip bundle
command within the primary port.
The D5 UEQ also supports modes of 2+1 and 3+1 redundancy options,
where a single gigabitEthernet port can be used as a spare for two or three
other ports (this can be useful when connected via a switch to a remote
M-CMTS core, rather than direct connections). When operating in 2+1 or
3+1, the backup port is allocated to the first primary port that fails.
The Gigabit Ethernet redundancy feature provides control over the
switching back to a primary port if it becomes active again. The ip
bundle policy non-revertive command, available in global config-
uration mode, is used to prevent reverting back to a primary Gigabit
Ethernet port if it becomes available again. The ip bundle policy
ARRI S D5 Universal Edge QAM
Release 3.0.1 ARRIS PROPRIETARY All Rights Reserved 13-15
2003-2010 ARRIS Group, Inc.
revertive command allows for automatic reverting between interfaces.
This command also allows a wait-time to be configured to deal with any
delays that occur during link activation (such as STP link-state resolution).
D5(config)# ip bundle policy non-revertive
D5(config)# ip bundle policy revertive wait-time 20
D5(config)#
It is also possible to force a switchover to the backup Gigabit Ethernet port
by entering the active gigabit Ethernet interface and entering the ip
bundle revert to command. To return from the backup to the active
gigabitEthernet port, enter the ip bundle revert from command.
These commands are immediate commands and are not stored as part of
the configuration.
D5(config)#interface gigabitethernet 0/1
D5(config-gig-if)#ip bundle revert to <<< switch over to backup
D5(config-gig-if)#
D5(config-gig-if)#ip bundle revert from <<< switch over from backup
D5(config-gig-if)#exit
D5(config)#
End of procedure
The configuration of the sparing is done on the active gigabitEthernet port,
by nominating the spare gigabitEthernet port to use. Multiple gigabitEth-
ernet ports can nominate the same spare gigabitEthernet port. The
switching over from the active to spare gigabitEthernet port is very fast.
The spare gigabitEthernet port runs hot (i.e., its physical layer is already
active) and when taking over from an active gigabitEthernet port, simply
activates its MAC layer, issues a gratuitous ARP and re-subscribes to all IP
multicast streams based on the active gigabitEthernet port configuration.
NOTE
A spare port must be in shut down mode before it is made part of the IP
bundle. An error will occur while attempting to configure a port that is a
spare for an IP bundle. It must be removed from the bundle being
configured.
Show Command Examples The show ip bundle command is used to display the current configu-
ration of the gigabitEthernet ports and any backup ports setup in IP
bundles. The show interface gigabitethernet x/y command will
display any IP bundle memberships that might exist.

Expanded Operation in Release 3.0.1
System Release 3.0.1 provides support for full operation of the existing D5
UEQ features, such as SDV and VOD at the 1488 sessions per WAN
module. When running in dual WAN mode, the D5 UEQ is configured to
have a maximum of 96 QAM channels on WAN 7 and 96 QAM channels on
WAN 8. The bandwidth associated with the 96 QAM channels is close to
4Gbps interfaces.
The 4+1 GE MAC Redundancy feature exploits fastEthernet port 0/1 to add
an extra redundant port. The fastEthernet 0/1 port becomes the redun-
dant backup port to support the four active gigabitEthernet SFP ports.
The fastEthernet port 0/1 can be used as a redundant GE port for any of
the other SFP GE ports. The fastEthernet port, 0/1, is capable of 1Gbps
operation, is fitted with the necessary Phy and magnetic to terminate the
Copper port and is hooked up to a fully functional GE port on the BCM
56500 switch.
The fastEthernet port 0/1 CANNOT be used as an active GE port (i.e., a
video carrying port) because it does not support the same configuration
commands as GE ports, nor is it mapped internally in the D5 UEQ to act as
a video/depi port.
CAUTI ON
The fastEthernet 0/1 port must be configured by the D5 UEQ to
disconnect from the management VLAN when it is assigned as a
redundant GE port. This will prevent any superfluous traffic from being
transmitted into the CPU. The remaining fastEthernet, 0/2, needs to be
reconfigured with the FE 0/1 settings in order to provide the exact same
13-18 ARRIS PROPRIETARY All Rights Reserved J uly 22, 2010

13 Redundancy
functionality as FE 0/1. Existing installations are only required to move
their NOC network configuration from FE 0/1 to FE 0/2. Failure to move
the configuration will result in losing management access to the D5 UEQ.
The feature introduced in Release 2.6 relied on the D5 UEQ WAN module
being able to detect local link failures on its active gigabitEthernet port and
force the IP/MAC address and IGMP joins from a failed gigabitEthernet
port to the configured redundant gigabitEthernet port. The D5 UEQ WAN
performs all the network refresh functions to ensure that the northbound
switch maintains connectivity to the original Ethernet MAC/IP Address
setup on the failed gigabitEthernet port.
The following diagrams show the connectivity to a northbound switch in
the existing Release 2.6 feature that only allowed the four SFP gigabitEth-
ernet ports to be used.

The dataplane network learned the IP/MAC addresses of the D5 UEQ giga-
bitEthernet ports using source address learning. The forwarding database
shows the relationship between the IP/MAC address and the network
interfaces on the switch/router.

In the event of a failure occurring on GE0/1 (as shown in Figure 13-8), the
GE MAC Redundancy feature identifies the link failure, reconfigures the
internals of the D5 UEQ to connect the GE0/4 interface to GE0/1, then
performs a network refresh (using ARP and IGMP joins) to direct all orig-
inal traffic sent to GE0/1 to GE0/4. The switch/router updates its
forwarding database using the gratuitous ARP issued by the D5 UEQ, and
handles any IP multicast forwarding required based on the IGMP joins
received.

Expanding the feature from just the four SFP GE ports to include a fifth GE
port is done by using the fastEthernet 0/1 port. This port is GE capable,
and is directly connected to the same internal switch as the other four SFP
GE ports. The benefit of including the fifth GE port is that the D5 UEQ WAN
module IPP FPGA can reach its maximum throughput (previously, one of
the SFP GE ports had to be sacrificed for redundancy, with a corresponding
drop of 1Gbps throughput).

The GE MAC redundancy includes the option to revert back to a recovered
active port, automatically or manually, and provides timeouts to control
the switchover speed between active and redundant ports. The feature
also supports displaying the status of the ip bundle and logging of state
changes using syslog and SNMP logs.
GQI/ RPC GigE Load Balancing
In Release 3.0.0, GQI operates with two primary GE ports and two backup
GE ports. Sessions are mapped to GE ports based on the input port number
on GQI session requests. Input sessions mapped to 0 (zero) are only
mapped to GE1 which was a non-optimal usage of the D5 UEQ gigabitEth-
ernet input capabilities and sessions mapped to 3 or 4 were mapped
directly back to GE1 and GE2.
ARRI S D5 Universal Edge QAM
Release 3.0.1 ARRIS PROPRIETARY All Rights Reserved 13-23
2003-2010 ARRIS Group, Inc.
In Release 3.0.1, load balancing is added and the current redundancy of
S1, S2 and S3 multicast sources of received sessions will be handled deter-
ministically. It will also provide default CLI configuration to map what is
currently in Release 3.0.0.
The D5 UEQ will allow GE ports to be configured as primary or secondary
ports. This is handled through the use of the GQI SDV related command
video sdv interface gigabitethernet 0/[1-4] [primary |
secondary | none]. This command will have defaults set to match
Release 3.0.0. When using HOT/WARM mode, only primary ports will be
used. When using HOT/HOT mode, primary ports are used for S1 sources,
while secondary ports are used for S2 (or S3) sources. GE interfaces not
required for SDV operation will be marked as none.
Load balancing will be performed when a session presents an input port
=0. When in HOT/WARM mode, the session will be load balanced across
the primary ports only. When in HOT/HOT mode, the session will be load
balanced with source S1 on the primary ports, and load balance with
source S2 on the secondary ports.
HOT/HOT mode will force the use of the secondary ports, and the number
of primary ports must match the number of secondary ports. In the case
of HOT/WARM, sessions are only placed on primary ports (secondary ports
are not used at all).
The use of HOT/WARM support in Release 3.0.1 will also allow the D5 UEQ
to properly support increases in the size of the SDV tier above 2Gbps,
described later in this document.

Since the default is HOT/WARM, the active source is joined to GE1 or GE2,
while a backup source is mapped to GE3 or GE4. There are no rules in the
current code to prevent S2 or S3 from appearing on GE1 or GE2 which is
a problem for segregating session sources to specific interfaces.
The current 3.0.0 scheme also has no control over what ports are
PRIMARY or what are SECONDARY, having a default assignment of ports
and no way to prevent a port from being used by SDV (especially in the
case of VOD or M-CMTS).
When operating GQI Shell Sessions, the D5 UEQ has always been required
to map QAM RF ports to explicit GE ports as there was no input port
number supplied with the GQI shell session requests. The introduction of
load balancing will enable this explicit mapping to be ignored, and allow
better utilization of GE bandwidth based on committed load.
Release 3.0.1 Behavior
The following describes the operation of Release 3.0.1 with the introduc-
tion of proper HOT/HOT and HOT/WARM handling, GE port assignment,
and load-balancing. An additional option to force load balancing is also
offered (basically setting input port values of 1, 2, 3 or 4 to 0 when
received). GE port failure is also addressed, allowing the load balancing to
overcome a lost GE port.
The default operation of 3.0.1 is to mostly match how Release 3.0.0 was
configured with the addition of proper source segregation when using
HOT/HOT, and proper load balancing within the primary and secondary
ports.
The D5 UEQ is required to support an SDV CLI option that maps a GE port
as PRIMARY, SECONDARY or NONE.
The primary setting means that a GE port will be used for S1 source in
HOT/HOT mode, or S1, S2 or S3 source in HOT/WARM mode. The
secondary setting means that a GE port will be used for S2, S3 source in
HOT/HOT mode, and not use in HOT/WARM mode. The none setting indi-
cates that the GE port will not be used in GQI SDV.
The assignment of GE ports as PRIMARY, SECONDARY or NONE can only
be performed when GQI SDV is disabled.

This approach ensures that no configuration changes can occur on GE port
assignment for SDV when SDV is up and running.
Load Balancing Support
Load balancing of sessions will apply to both HOT/HOT and HOT/WARM
modes of operation.
Load balancing determines the lowest loaded GE port on which to place a
session. Multiple GE ports may exist in the PRIMARY or SECONDARY maps.
Session counts and total session bandwidth gets maintained per GE port,
incremented due to session creates, decremented due to session deletes.
The lowest loaded GE port is chosen when adding a new session to the D5
UEQ. The session remains associated with the assigned GE port until the
session is deleted or in the case of HOT/WARM until a GE port failure
occurs (and a subsequent re-balance occurs).
HOT/ HOT and HOT/ WARM Support
The current SDV HOT/HOT and HOT/WARM configuration options are
used to control GQI behavior.
When running in HOT/HOT mode, only GE ports marked as PRIMARY will
carry S1 source, while S2 and S3 sources will be mapped to SECONDARY
GE ports. In HOT/HOT mode, the number of primary and secondary GE
ports must be equal.
In HOT/HOT mode, two load balance operations are performed. The first
load balance operation relates to placing the S1 source on the PRIMARY
GE ports. The second load balance operation puts the S2 source on the
SECONDARY GE ports. The GQI SDV system fails over from S1 to S2 in the
case of a S1 source failure or PRIMARY GE failure. The GQI SDV system
fails back to S1 only when S2 fails or the SECONDARY GE port fails.
In HOT/WARM mode, only one load balance operation is performed. The
session remains associated with the GE port until the session is deleted or
the GE port fails (resulting in a re-balance). When a source fails, the D5
UEQ maintains the session on the same GE port, but forces a switch-over
to the next available source. This means the failed multicast session must
be removed before the next available multicast source is joined, on the
same GE port. This approach maintains that the total bandwidth on the GE
port remains the same (and no load balancing is required).

13 Redundancy
HOT/ WARM Link Redundancy
In HOT/WARM, the D5 UEQ has the option of load balancing all sessions
associated with a failed GE to the other available PRIMARY GE ports. This
means that a certain amount of path redundancy is available, without
requiring a full N+N redundancy setup.
Forced Load Balancing
Load Balancing in general requires an input port number of 0 to be
supplied in the case of sessions created by CreateSession, or is always
enabled for shell sessions since these sessions are created without an
input port being specified. It is also useful to allow the D5 UEQ to ignore
the supplied input port number, and perform FORCED load balancing. In
this mode, which only effects sessions created by CreateSession, any input
port not equal to 0 is set to 0, and the D5 UEQ takes over responsibility of
mapping the sessions to the available PRIMARY or SECONDARY ports
(depending on the redundancy mode, HOT/WARM vs. HOT/HOT).
Support for 2+ Gbps SDV Tier
As operators increase the number of programs (both SD and HD) in the
available SDV tier, the associated bandwidths also increase. This has a
direct impact on how an EQAM can continue to operate within the SDV
environment. If the EQAM does not have enough GE ports to match the
SDV tier, the EQAM may not join and deliver all the content requested by
the SDV users. In HOT/HOT, a maximum SDV tier of two Gigabits is
supported, primarily because the four GE interfaces are split as two
Primary and two Secondary GE interfaces. In HOT/HOT redundancy, it is
not possible to exceed two gigabits as there are only two GE interfaces.
Even in a worst case scenario, where all the SDV content is requested by
subscribers, the D5 UEQ can only support an SDV tier size of at most two
Gigabits.
Release 3.0.1 allows for HOT/WARM redundancy over all interfaces, in the
event the SDV tier exceeds two Gigabits. The D5 UEQ can perform load
balancing automatically when an input port=0 is supplied by the SDV
Server, or force load balancing itself. The use of multiple GE ports in
HOT/WARM with load-balancing allows the D5 UEQ to overcome link fail-
ures and re-balance SDV sessions over remaining active GE ports
(providing some link/path redundancy, without the need to use HOT/HOT
mode).

CLI Support
The CLI changes are limited to four commands:
video sdv policy-active [hot-hot| hot-warm]
This command is already part of the D5 UEQ CLI commands for controlling
SDV operation. The use of HOT/HOT will enable HOT/HOT operation in
GQI using both primary and secondary assigned GE ports, while
HOT/WARM will only use primary assigned GE ports.
video sdv interface gigabitethernet 0/[1-4]
[primary|secondary|none]
This command allows any of the four GE ports to be utilized for primary or
secondary use for GQI, or excluded altogether from GQI usage.
[no]video sdv policy-load-balance forced
This command overrides incoming input port numbers such that they are
treated as 0 by the GQI SDV system. Normal load balancing, where
sessions are presented with input port=0, are not affected by this
command. Using this option allows the D5 UEQ to entirely control the
session placement entirely, and enables more control of GE failure. E.g., if
USRM signaled sessions are placed on specific GEs, they cant be moved.
If the D5 UEQ removes this control from the USRM, it can place sessions
on any active PRIMARY GE port, and recover sessions to active PRIMARY
GE port from failed PRIMARY GE ports). The [no] option forces the D5 UEQ
to obey the session input ports supplied by the SDV Server.
show video sdv load-balance [verbose]
This command is used to display the SDV load-balance status of the four
GE Ports, their link-status, their assignment as primary, secondary or
none, and the counts of assigned SDV sessions and total bandwidth per
GE port. The verbose command will display the same basic information,
along with details of each session assigned to the GE port and bandwidth.

GigE Link Trunking Redundancy
Link aggregation redundancy, otherwise known as trunking, allows the
logical grouping of a number of individual Ethernet interfaces into a larger,
combined bandwidth trunk, for the purposes of redundancy, speed and
increased network reliability. The total bandwidth of a trunk is equivalent
to the aggregate of all the physical Ethernet interfaces (links) in that trunk.

13 Redundancy
Figure 13-11: GigE Link Trunking Redundancy Example
Trunking accomplishes high network availability, load balancing and
redundancy by automatically redirecting traffic to surviving links of a trunk.
If one or more physical links in that trunk are disabled, and then immedi-
ately directs them back, should the formally failed links again become
available.
SFP GigE Trunking The D5 UEQ can utilize up to four SFP GigE ports in a video trunk to create
a single logical link capable of delivering four Gbps or other redundancy
options such as 3:1, 2:2, 2:1, and 2 of 1:1. To support this, the D5 UEQ
CLI allows the manual configuration of gigabitethernet ports into static
trunking links.
Configuring a Trunk Configuring a trunk consists of creating a port channel, adding the desired
GigE ports to that port channel including a standby port, adding a loop-
back interface for management and to carry the IP address of the trunk.
The procedure is as follows:

the DEPI L2TP Control Plane (for D-MPT) has been added. DOCSIS Timing
Interface (DTI) support already exists on the D5 UEQ hardware as part of
M-CMTS core and plays a critical role as it drives the internal timing of the
M-CMTS core and the downstream EdgeQAMs responsible for sending the
received DOCSIS 2.0 and 3.0 traffic over RF.

System Overview
The D5 UEQ supports DTI, Downstream External PHY Interface (DEPI) and
DRFI/D3.0 RF specifications. It is capable of dual-DTI server operation
(when equipped with the Dual DTI WAN Part Number 728905) and also
supports redundant Gigabit Ethernet ports for the reception of DEPI traffic.
It receives M-CMTS DEPI traffic over its Gigabit Ethernet link from a
remote M-CMTS Core (Cisco 10K). DEPI traffic consists of the DOCSIS
control plane traffic to setup dynamic sessions and DEPI data/MAC traffic
that has not passed through the final processing and RF up-conversion-
stage performed by a traditional CMTS. In the case of the M-CMTS opera-
tion, when the DEPI control plane is active, the M-CMTS core establishes
an L2TP control plane connection to setup and control DEPI data plane

session on the D5 UEQ. The M-CMTS core transmits DOCSIS traffic to a
remote D5 UEQ M-CMTS EdgeQAM to perform the necessary final
processing and RF up-conversion.
All of the D5 UEQ Gigabit Ethernet links may be used to carry DEPI traffic,
and all of the QAM channels in the D5 UEQ can be used to perform the
final processing and up-conversion of DEPI traffic (as normally done by a
traditional CMTS).
DEPI traffic can be sent by an M-CMTS Core using one of two different
formats, DOCSIS MPEG-TS (DMPT) traffic or Packet Streaming Protocol
(PSP) traffic. The current release of the D5 UEQ supports DMPT traffic,
matching the capability of available/existing M-CMTS core devices. The
establishment of DEPI data plane sessions can be statically managed
directly on each of the M-CMTS devices (core/EQAM) or dynamically
managed by the M-CMTS core to the EQAM via the DEPI L2TP control
plane interface.
DEPI DMPT Mode
DEPI DMPT mode carries DOCSIS data and MAC frames as MPEG packets
as a result of the MPEG segmentation function performed on DOCSIS
frames in the M-CMTS Core device. The finalized MPEG packets (each with
their PID set to 0x1FFE), are transported over IP to the D5 UEQ using two
different approaches, either directly in UDP/IP packets (similar to tradi-
tional VOD/SDV traffic) or within L2TPv3 packets. Each individual DEPI
DMPT flow is associated with a single QAM output channel. No QoS is
applied by the M-CMTS EdgeQAM to DEPI DMPT traffic as the M-CMTS
Core already performed QoS before the MPEG segmentation function.
Any DEPI DMPT traffic that carries DOCSIS timing (specifically the DOCSIS
SYNC MAC message) must be corrected by the D5 UEQ before being
modulated and up-converted. Correcting the DOCSIS timestamp (within
the DOCSIS SYNC MAC messages) requires that the D5 UEQ shares iden-
tical DOCSIS timestamp information with the M-CMTS Core. Accurate
Downstream/Upstream time synchronization is essential for DOCSIS to
operate. Rather than distribute the M-CMTS core timestamp, the M-CMTS
specifications provides a DOCSIS Timing Interface, DTI, that uses a timing
server to distribute a common timestamp to a set of clients. The D5 UEQ
and the M-CMTS Core act as DTI clients connected to the DTI server (a
limit of 200m exists between client/server connections). The DTI server
operates the DTI protocol to ensure that the 10.24MHz clock and DOCSIS
timestamp get delivered accurately to each client. As a result the D5 UEQ
has an identical copy of the DOCSIS timestamp and is able to correct the
DOCSIS SYNC message to ensure that the DOCSIS MAC system can
operate within this distributed environment.
DEPI PSP Mode PSP mode is currently not supported as part of D5 UEQ System.

14 M-CMTS Support
DEPI L2TP Control Plane
DEPI supports a dynamic control plane interface over L2TP that allows an
M-CMTS core to request an EQAM to setup DEPI dynamic session
endpoints to which the M-CMTS core transmits its DEPI data/MAC traffic.
A dynamic session maps directly to a single QAM channel on an EQAM.
Similar to static DEPI sessions, the M-CMTS core must identify the
frequency, power, interleaver, annex, etc of each RF channel it wants to
use. For dynamic sessions, the M-CMTS core must also identify the TSIDs
(Transport Stream IDentifier) of the remote QAM channels that will be
used, and signals this TSID as part of the dynamic session setup requests.
The M-CMTS Core acts as the client requesting DEPI sessions from the
EQAM server.
The DEPI L2TP Control Protocol requires a unique control connection to be
established from an M-CMTS core to a gigabitEthernet input port on the
EQAM. The EQAM must operate at least one control plane connection per
gigabitEthernet port (The D5 UEQ can support >1 control plane per giga-
bitEthernet port in order to allow multiple M-CMTS core devices to share a
gigabitEthernet port if necessary).
The DEPI L2TP control plane requires a control connection to be estab-
lished between the Core and the EQAM (SCCRQ->SCCRQ->SCCN). Once
setup, the Core signals session setup requests to the EQAM, one per QAM
channel to establish DEPI dynamic sessions (ICRQ->ICRP->ICCN->SLI).
The session setup establishes an L2TP tunnel between the M-CMTS core
and the EQAM, and can optionally reconfigure the QAM/RF parameters of
the remote QAM channel on the EQAM. The EQAM is dynamically config-
ured with an L2TP SessionID on the connected gigabitEthernet port during
the session setup. (Static and dynamic L2TP sessions are treated the same
from a data traffic processing perspective on the D5 UEQ). Once the
dynamic sessions are established, the M-CMTS core can transmit to the D5
UEQ that classifies and forwards the received DEPI traffic to the dynami-
cally assigned QAM channel for final stage processing (DTI overwrite)
before transmitting to RF.
Primary/ Secondary Downstreams
A QAM channel receiving DEPI DMPT traffic with DOCSIS timing is known
as a primary downstream channel. A QAM channel receiving DEPI DMPT
traffic WITHOUT DOCSIS timing is known as a secondary downstream
channel. DOCSIS 1.0/1.1/2.0 CMs can only operate with primary down-
stream channels, while DOCSIS 3.0 modems require a minimum of one
primary downstream channel (the remaining downstream channels used
by a 3.0 modem can be primary or secondary). The D5 UEQ also supports
wideband mode of operation where the M-CMTS Core generates the
primary downstream QAM channel locally, and relies on the D5 UEQ to
handle the secondary downstream QAM channels.

UDP/ IP and L2TPv3
The carriage of DMPT packets over IP is possible using UDP/IP or L2TPv3.
In the case of UDP/IP, the DMPT MPEG traffic is placed in an IP packet
addressed to a Gigabit Ethernet link on the D5 UEQ (via the destination IP
address). The destination UDP port of the IP packet is mapped to a specific
output QAM channel on the D5 UEQ. All traffic received by the D5 UEQ on
this UDP/IP combination is passed to the correct QAM channel for DOCSIS
timestamp correction (if necessary) and RF up-conversion. In the case of
L2TPv3, the DMPT MPEG traffic is placed in an L2TPv3 packet containing
an L2TPv3 Session ID and an L2TPv3 DEPI DMPT Sub-layer header
(comprising of some control fields and a separate sequence number). The
L2TPv3 traffic is typically sent as native traffic, without any UDP header,
using IP protocol type 115. (carriage using L2TPv3/UDP is also supported).
All field trials to date have identified that native L2TPv3 is in use (no
evidence of L2TPv3/UDP).
With both cases, static mappings can be configured on the D5 UEQ or the
DEPI L2TP control plane can be used. For static mappings, the D5 UEQ
provides a set of commands, detailed below that are used to manage these
mappings to QAM channels. The UDP/IP or SessionID/IP settings config-
ured on the D5 UEQ must be used by the M-CMTS Core to setup its
mappings.
In both cases, as IP packet fragmentation is actively avoided, a maximum
of seven MPEG packets (when using an MTU of 1500) are carried. For
dynamic sessions, a depi control-plane configuration option is provided
via the CLI and WEB to configure the L2TP endpoint configuration. When
the DEPI control plane is in use, any previously configured static mappings
present on QAM channels must be removed.
Downstream Channel Configuration
Like all EdgeQAMs, the D5 UEQ allows downstream QAM parameters to be
configured. An operator must ensure that the M-CMTS core downstream
QAM configuration matches the configuration of the remote EdgeQAM.
This can be achieved by cross-checking configurations; specifically,
ensuring that the L2TPv3 session ID assigned to the M-CMTS core RF
channel details matches the EdgeQAM session ID and RF parameter
details.
In the case of the DEPI Control Plane, the operator must check that the
TSIDs configured on the M-CMTS Core downstream configuration matches
the desired QAM channel on the EQAM. Note that the configuration of all
the RF parameters can be dynamically modified by the M-CMTS Core when
using the DEPI control plane. This removes the need or checking of RF
configurations associated with the static mode of operation.

Configuration Examples
The following configuration examples identify the basic D5 UEQ configura-
tion to setup the downstream QAM and DEPI settings from a static mode
of operation.
NOTE
For both static and dynamic, the QAM channels must be configured on
the D5 UEQ with some RF parameters, as well as being enabled/powered
up.
NOTE
The DTI procedure applies to both static and dynamic configurations.
Procedure 14-1 Setting up the downstream QAM settings
In this example, we are setting up four downstream QAM channels for
Annex-A operation at 256 QAM modulation transmitting at 548MHz,
556MHz, 564MHz and 572MHz. The channels are all transmitted with a
power output of 50 dBmV.
NOTE
There is no requirement to address interleaver settings with Annex-A, as
there is only a single interleaver setting (I=12, J =17) allowed. For Annex-
B, the interleaver setting must match the CMTS configuration.

End of procedure
Procedure 14-2 Setting up DEPI addressing
To setup DEPI addressing associated with each QAM channel, the
following configuration for each QAM channel is required. The number
after dmpt is the dest-ip address which identifies the ingress gigabitEth-
ernet port on the D5 UEQ that the L2TPv3 DEPI stream must be sent to
(this is used to manually allocate input bandwidth over the available giga-

QAM channel. Of course, the following commands can be entered when
enabling the individual QAM channels in the previous step.
D5(config)#interface qam 1/1.1
D5(config-qam-chan)#depi dmpt dest-ip 10.30.4.99 sessionId 49162

D5(config-qam-chan)#depi dmpt dest-ip 10.30.4.99 sessionId 49165
D5(config-qam-chan)#exit
D5(config)#
The above configuration is setup for four primary downstream channels
signaled using the L2TPv3 data plane.
To use UDP as the transport, the following commands are required to
setup the data path between the ingress gigabitEthernet ports and the
output QAM channels:
D5(config)#interface qam 1/1.1
D5(config-qam-chan)#depi dmpt dest-ip 10.30.4.99 udp 49162

UDP/ L2TP RulesIf UDP or L2TPv3 DEPI sessions are not configured
correctly to match what is being sent, and a DEPI rule for UDP port 1-
65535 was created, that rule will also allow an L2TPv3 sessionID of 1-
65535 to pass.

Release 3.0.1 ARRIS PROPRIETARY All Rights Reserved 14-9
Example:
D5(config-qam-chan)#depi dmpt dest-ip N.N.N.N udp 1000
A backup rule of depi dmpt dest-ip 1234 sessionid 1000 will
also be configured. If the user sends in UDP 1000, the traffic matches the
rules. If the system is misconfigured, traffic using L2TPv3 sessionId 1000
would still pass.
The reverse is also true.
Example:
D5(config-qam-chan)#depi dmpt dest-ip N.N.N.N sessionid 1000
A backup rule of depi dmpt dest-ip 1234 udp 1000 will also be
configured. If the user sends in L2TPv3 traffic using sessionID 1000, the
traffic matches the rules. If the system is misconfigured, traffic using UDP
port 1000 would still pass.
Procedure 14-3 Configuring gigabitEthernet Redundancy
The D5 UEQ supports 1+1 gigabitEthernet redundancy to match the 1+1
redundancy options available on some M-CMTS cores. When using the
redundancy option, the primary gigabitEthernet port is configured as
normal with IP address details, etc.
To enable redundancy, the ip bundle command is used to explicitly
nominate the backup gigabitEthernet port by specifying the correct giga-
bitEthernet interface.
D5(config)#interface gigabitethernet 0/1
D5(config-gig-if)#ip bundle gigabitethernet 0/2
D5(config-gig-if)#exit
D5(config)#
End of procedure
The configuration can be removed simply by issuing a no ip bundle
command within the primary port.
The D5 UEQ also supports modes of 2+1, 3+1 and 4 + 1 redundancy
options, where a single gigabitEthernet port can be used as a spare for
two, three or four other ports (this can be useful when connected via a
switch to a remote M-CMTS core, rather than direct connections). When
operating in 2+1, 3+1 or 4+1, the backup port is allocated to the first
primary port that fails. The D5 UEQ will automatically switchback to the
14-10 ARRIS PROPRIETARY All Rights Reserved J uly 22, 2010
14 M-CMTS Support
primary port if it recovers, to ensure that the backup port continues to be
available. For complete information, refer to GigabitEthernet (GE) MAC
Redundancy, page 13-14.
The Gigabit Ethernet redundancy feature provides control over the
switching back to a primary port if it becomes active again. The ip
bundle policy non-revertive command, available in global config-
uration mode, is used to prevent reverting back to a primary Gigabit
Ethernet port if it becomes available again. The ip bundle policy
revertive command allows automatic reverting between interfaces to
occur. This command also allows a wait-time to be configured to deal
with any delays that occur during link activation (such as STP link-state
resolution).
D5_2(config)# ip bundle policy non-revertive
D5_2(config)# ip bundle policy revertive wait-time 20
D5_2(config)#
It is also possible to force a switchover to the backup Gigabit Ethernet port
by entering the active gigabit Ethernet interface and entering the ip
bundle revert to command. To return from the backup to the active
gigabitEthernet port, enter the ip bundle revert from command.
These commands are immediate commands and are not stored as part of
the configuration.
D5(onfig)#interface gigabitethernet 0/1
D5(config-gig-if)#ip bundle revert to <<< switch over to backup
D5(config-gig-if)#
D5(config-gig-if)#ip bundle revert from <<< switch over from backup
D5(config-gig-if)#exit
D5(config)#
End of procedure
The show ip bundles command is used to display the current configu-
ration of the gigabitEthernet ports and any backup ports setup in ip
bundles. The show interface gigabitEthernet x/y.z command
will display the any ip bundle memberships that might exist.

Release 3.0.1 ARRIS PROPRIETARY All Rights Reserved 14-11
Procedure 14-4 Configuring L2TP Control Plane
As per the static configuration, the QAM channels that are assigned for M-
CMTS operation must be configured enabled (no shutdown on each QAM
channel), and configured with some RF configuration values. It makes
sense to set the RF parameters to match the typical DOCSIS configuration
in use, as this is likely to be reused for M-CMTS.
An additional parameter, the TSID, not normally associated with DOCSIS
must also be configured for each QAM channel. This parameter is a 16-bit
value, with valid values from 1-65535. The value is typically unique per
QAM channel within an operators network; however, for DEPI control
plane operation, the uniqueness requirement is only necessary per EQAM.
The D5 UEQ QAM channels are addressed using the naming convention
QAM X/Y.Z, where X is the slot number (starting at 1, top left), Y is the
physical port number (starting at 1, left to right) and Z is the
logical/channel number on the physical port (starting at 1). So, QAM 1/1.1
would map to the first QAM channel on the first port of the QAM module
in slot 1. The D5 UEQ assigns default TSID values to every QAM channel
present in the chassis. The D5 UEQ allocates TSID values to QAM channels
by following the X/Y.Z nomenclature, so QAM 1/1.1 would have TSID
10101, and QAM 4/1.3 would have a default TSID of 40103. All the QAM
channels have similar default TSID assignments. This numbering approach
simplifies QAM channel identification, and also ensures that the TSIDs are
unique within a D5 UEQ, even when fully populated with QAM modules.
The TSID can be changed, if required, by using the video tsid <val>
command on any of the D5 UEQ QAM channels.

Operation
When operating in auto (redundant) mode, the D5 UEQ will allow you to
configure the behavior of the DTI port during failover or recovery. The
revertive command option, if enabled, will force a switchover to the
primary DTI link whenever it recovers after a failure.
To disable this mode and force the D5 UEQ to remain on its current DTI
link without switching back to any recovering links, the no revertive
command should be used (as shown in the following example).
ARRI S D5 Universal Edge QAM
Release 3.0.1 ARRIS PROPRIETARY All Rights Reserved 14-15
To enable the redundant setup, the following commands should be
entered:
D5(config)#interface dti

D5(config-dti)#no revertive
D5(config-dti)#no shutdown
D5(config-dti)#exit

Procedure 14-5 Setting up the DTI configuration
The D5 UEQ automatically performs the SYNC timestamp overwrite using
the DOCSIS timestamp supplied using the DTI links.
In order to setup the DTI link configuration, the DTI interface must be
enabled as follows:
D5(config)#interface dti
D5(config-dti)#port 1
D5(config-dti)#no shutdown
D5(config-dti)#exit

End of procedure
Procedure 14-6 Dual DTI Support
The D5 UEQ supports dual DTI operation (when equipped with the Dual
DTI WAN Part Number 728905). The DTI port on the D5 UEQ is internally
wired to deliver two separate DTI server signals to the DTI controller on
the D5 UEQ allowing for redundant server setups.
To enable the redundant setup, the following should be entered:
D5(config)#interface dti
D5(config-dti)#auto
D5(config-dti)#no revertive
D5(config-dti)#no shutdown
D5(config-dti)#exit
D5(config)
When operating in auto (redundant) mode, the D5 UEQ also allows for
the behavior of DTI port selection during failover/recovery to be config-
ured. The revertive command option, if enabled, will force a
switchover to the primary DTI link whenever it recovers after a failure.

offset values as reported by the show cable modem output from an M-
CMTS core. The offset is measured in time tick values.
To reduce the time offset value of all the QAM channels associated with
QAM 1/1 by 40 ticks, the following should be entered:

Overview
The D5 UEQ supports RADIUS Authentication, TACACS+ Authentication
and a limited AAA (Authentication, Authorization and Accounting) frame-
work required to setup Radius.
RADIUS or TACACS+ can be configured as a remote Authentication
protocol for the login and enable CLI levels. Multiple RADIUS/TACACS+
servers can be configured and added to server groups to allow for server
redundancy. As part of the AAA framework, the use of RADIUS or
TACACS+ authentication can be finely tuned to different CLI interfaces
such as the console line, the multiple vty (telnet) lines or the HTTP inter-
faces.

15 Security
Local authorization of commands is based on command privilege level,
allowing commands to be moved from the higher privilege enable level
into the lower Privilege login level. Default privilege levels will apply for
all of the CLI commands supplied with the D5 UEQ; some additional
commands will be used to change the privilege setting per command.
The extent of the feature development for both TACACS+ and RADIUS is
to support remote authentication of users gaining access to the D5 UEQ.
The D5 UEQ will provide basic configuration commands to setup details of
TACACS+ and RADIUS protocols/servers. Once the AAA protocols/servers
are configured, additional commands will be provided to enable the user
to configure the AAA services to meet their needs, and will include other
options for authentication including local database and no authentication
at all. The AAA model allows for different management interfaces (serial,
telnet, ssh, etc) to be configured differently, allowing a user to define
different AAA policies on these interfaces.
The AAA Model The AAA security model is an architectural framework for the implementa-
tion and management of common security functions within a mixed
network environment and is an industry standard adhered to by our
competitors. The model distinguishes authentication (verification of a
users identity) from authorization (verification that a users actions are
permissible) and offers accounting services with respect to both.
Moreover, the model separates security policy from policy enforcement
thereby enabling a distributed security scheme with centralized policy
management for each independent function. The following figure provides
a network-level illustration.

In the figure above, the D5 UEQ and the Router are AAA clients that defer
login authentication and command authorization responsibilities to remote
servers. Information regarding each authentication or authorization
exchange is forwarded to accounting servers where historical records of
user activity are maintained.
Note that the AAA model itself does not demand a distributed security
scheme but simply offers enough flexibility to accommodate it. Any and all
of the AAA functions can be administered locally at an element. For
example, an element can defer login authentication to a remote authority
but authorizes each command locally based on element-specific policy
such as the users privilege level. Similarly, an element can authenticate
locally (e.g., from a password file) but defers authorization to an external
server on a per-command basis.
In the case of Radius Authentication on the D5 UEQ, the above diagram is
modified slightly with the following configuration setup.
Figure 15-2: Radius Authentication Model on the D5 UEQ
Login attempts are terminated in the D5 UEQ. The login to the CLI is
authenticated using either local authentication (authn) database (which is
the default out of box configuration for the D5 UEQ) or the RADIUS
protocol to connect to the remote authentication servers. As the D5 UEQ
follows the industry standard notion of a separate login password and a
separate enable password, both of these can be authenticated using the
remote RADIUS servers.

The D5 UEQ also supports local authorization of commands based on priv-
ilege level of the login. A normal login is assigned a privilege level of 0,
while an enable login is assigned a privilege level of 15. Commands avail-
able on the D5 UEQ can have their privilege level re-assigned through the
use of the privilege exec level command, allowing a user to setup the
commands applicable to either the login or enable levels. A number of
commands are setup by default at the login level, while all other
commands are setup with privilege level 15.
I nitial Setup The D5 UEQ, when initially setup, has no usernames or passwords config-
ured, and access is only available through the console port. Once IP
addresses and username/passwords are setup, access via Telnet is
enabled. In this configuration, a login password and enable password
exist per user and are stored as part of the configuration file.
To state this in AAA equivalent terms, the authentication for login and
enable levels are set to use the local authentication database (e.g. the
username/passwords configured on the D5 UEQ), while there is no autho-
rization for command or exec modes, and no accounting for command or
exec modes. Note that no AAA commands are part of the D5 UEQ initial
configuration file.
Local Authorization As mentioned, the D5 UEQ does support the notion of local authorization
of commands. This is achieved by assigning a privilege level to each
command, from 0 to 15. Typically, the privilege level associated with login
is set to 0, while the privilege level associated with enable level is 15. A
user setup with only login privileges will only have access to those
commands configured to privilege level 0, while a user setup with login and
enable privileges will have access to privilege level 15 commands.
The notion of local command privilege levels influences the operation of
the CLI to the point where the ? CLI option output (for displaying all avail-
able commands within the current CLI context) gets filtered based on the
users privilege level and privilege level of commands within the context.
When AAA is enabled on the D5 UEQ, the user gets the opportunity to
modify how the user authentication command is setup. The user is also
provided with the option of tailoring how AAA operates on each of the
different interfaces capable of supporting the CLI, including console and
vty (telnet) on the D5 UEQ (these are typically known as lines).
TACACS+ Authentication
Terminal Access Controller Access Control System plus (TACACS+) is a
relatively simple, TCP-based protocol supporting distinct request/response
transactions for authentication, authorization, and accounting. TACACS+
supports full payload encryption via MD5.
ARRI S D5 Universal Edge QAM
Release 3.0.1 ARRIS PROPRIETARY All Rights Reserved 15-5
2003-2010 ARRIS Group, Inc.
TACACS+ offers authentication for a wide variety of user services including
login, privilege-level change (e.g. entering enable mode) and password
change. It employs an unbounded, server-controlled challenge-response
mechanism in which the server may issue any number of challenges to a
user prior to accepting or rejecting a service request. If the server rejects
a service request, the client drops the connection. Otherwise, the client
establishes the service parameters (e.g., session timeout, idle timeout,
privilege level) as directed by the server and initiates the service.
AAA Treatment of SSH
I nterfaces
Each SSH interface allows an SSH user to authenticate themselves to the
system using an SSH key. If no AAA configuration is configured on an SSH
interface, then the correct SSH key will grant the user access to the D5
UEQ CLI. The SSH interfaces can be configured to use AAA, in which case
the user will be asked for the appropriate information (e.g. username and
password for RADIUS/TACACS+ authentication)
AAA Method List Operation An AAA method list may contain one or more AAA methods. With multiple
methods, AAA capabilities can continue to operate even if some methods
become unavailable due to network failures or configuration errors.
Line Operation Each line interface supports a CLI session. The CLI sessions behavior is
completely dependent on the configuration of the associated line.
However, a sessions authentication process can override a lines configu-
ration for the duration of a session.
Creating a default AAA
model
The aaa new-model command provides a wizard like configuration inter-
face for quickly setting up sensible defaults for all lines to use TACACS+.
Once the command is issued the system will use the TACACS+ server for
all authentication services.
NOTE
Once you run aaa new-model, you may not be able to perform any
more configuration changes until you start a new login session.
Local Authorization Each command on the D5 UEQ CLI will have an assigned privilege level
which can be changed via the local authorization CLI interface. A user who
has performed a TACACS+ login authentication can issue the enable
command with an optional parameter. This changes the users privilege
level and makes all commands up to that level available to the user. For
RADIUS, only login and enable users are supported and only privilege
level 0 and 15 are possible. This means commands must be locally
assigned to either of these two levels.
The D5 UEQ supports a local privilege command that is used to assign
command privilege levels between 0 and 15. Level 0 is used to identify all
commands available from the login prompt, while level 15 is the highest
privilege level and is associated with the enable logging.

As already described, the D5 UEQ supports the notion of local authoriza-
tion. In the case of TACACS+, once a user is authenticated, the D5 UEQ is
provided with privilege credentials from the server that identifies the user.
If the user logs in using the login prompt, all commands available are at
privilege level 0. However, it is possible to login to another enable level,
by supplying the number after the enable command and pressing
RETURN on the keyboard. The number supplied identifies the exact privi-
lege level.

Radius
From the point of view of RADIUS, only user authentication is supported,
both login and enable. Login user privilege is set to 0, and enable
level is set to 15. These privilege levels define what commands are avail-
able to login and enable modes. Think of this as a very basic local
command authorization concept in the absence of any real AAA authori-
zation for RADIUS. This concept is managed by the privilege exec level
command, where commands are assigned different privilege levels, 0 for
login level or 15 for enable level.
The same applies to accounting, where the D5 UEQ does not support any
notion of RADIUS accounting, but does support the option of logging all
CLI activity into per line files (console.log, vty0.log, etc) on the local
compact flash file system. This is a very basic local accounting concept,
controlled through the CLI logging command available in global configura-
tion mode. The details logged are available through the show cli
logging {console, vty0, etc}.
Setting up RADIUS
To setup RADIUS, details of the remote server must be available. The D5
UEQ requires a number of different parameters to be supplied to properly
configure the remote server. Up to three different RADIUS servers can be
configured. Global timeout, retry and key values can be configured or
these may be configured per RADIUS server.
Procedure 15-1 Setup remote RADI US server with global settings
D5(config)#radius-server key abc123
D5(config)#radius-server timeout 3
D5(config)#radius-server retransmit 3
D5(config)#radius-server host 192.168.254.2

This example shows how global settings can be configured for all config-
ured RADIUS servers. The radius-server timeout value configures
the amount of time (in seconds) the D5 UEQ will wait for a RADIUS server
to respond to an authentication request. If a timeout occurs, the D5 UEQ
will retry the request again, up to a maximum of radius-server
retransmit. The radius-server key must contain the shared-
secret associated with the RADIUS configuration in the remote RADIUS
server.
NOTE
The D5 UEQ supports configuring all of these options on an individual
RADIUS server basis through a single command line. Per-RADIUS server
settings take precedence over any global settings.
The above configuration can be simplified to the following:
Procedure 15-2 Setup remote RADI US server with individual settings
D5(config)#radius-server host 192.168.254.2 timeout 3 key abc123
D5(config)#radius-server host 192.168.254.4 key ddd999
End of procedure
To setup other RADIUS servers, simply repeat the above commands with
the appropriate IP address for the servers in question.
NOTE
RADIUS servers MUST be configured as shown above before they can be
added to RADIUS server groups that are described below.
Please note the following defaults for RADIUS:
Timeout 5 seconds (0-1000, 0=no timeout)
Retransmit is 3 retries (4 attempts, 0-5)
Default key = (up to 32 characters can be supplied)
Default port = 1812 (RADIUS port)
Once the different RADIUS servers are setup, the corresponding RADIUS
server groups can be setup. The RADIUS server group is a list of one or
more RADIUS servers that are to be used when performing remote
authentication of login and enable modes. When adding servers to the
group, the order that the servers are added is important, as it determines
ARRI S D5 Universal Edge QAM
Release 3.0.1 ARRIS PROPRIETARY All Rights Reserved 15-9
2003-2010 ARRIS Group, Inc.
the order that the servers are subsequently contacted when trying to
exchange RADIUS protocol messages. The first server added is always the
first server contacted by the D5 UEQ.
Setup server group with RADIUS servers
D5(config)#aaa group server radius RAD-SRV-GRP
D5(config-sg-radius)#server 192.168.254.2
D5(config-sg-radius)#server 192.168.254.4
D5(config-sg-radius)#exit#
The server group command, aaa group server requires that the type of
servers being grouped together are explicitly stated. As this is for RADIUS
authentication, radius is supplied as the server type. The server group
must also be configured with a name which is set using the last parameter
in the above command, RAD-SRV-GRP.
Once the server group is created, it is possible to see how it is configured
by running the show radius groups command, as per the following
example.
Procedure 15-3 Show RADI US server group settings
D5(config)#show radius groups

End of procedure
NOTE
The order the servers were entered through the CLI is preserved in the
output of the group.
The D5 UEQ supports up to three separate server groups, each with their
own name. What is also interesting with server groups is that two separate
server groups can reference a common RADIUS server (e.g. a single
RADIUS server can appear in multiple server groups).

15 Security
Normally server groups are setup with multiple servers for redundancy
reasons in case a single server becomes unavailable during normal opera-
tion. In this case, the D5 UEQ will give up on the first server after retrying
as many times as configured (note default retry count is 3) and then move
to the next available server in the group. If none of the RADIUS servers
provisioned can be contacted, RADIUS authentication will not be possible
with the line in use and the D5 UEQ will then consider other authentica-
tion methods as configured through the AAA setup.
Once the RADIUS servers are setup and the server groups are defined, it
is possible to consider the AAA configuration options and how to manage
the so-called methods that are used for authentication.
AAA Configuration
To use AAA, the AAA sub-system must be enabled through the use of the
aaa new-model command. As part of enabling the AAA sub-system, the
D5 UEQ sets up default method lists for all the different AAA configuration
options, referenced by the name default, in order to match a normal, non-
AAA controlled system. The following commands are added by the D5 UEQ
to achieve this configuration setting.
Global AAA commands automatically added by the aaa new-
model command
aaa authentication login default local
aaa authentication enable default local
aaa authorization commands default none
aaa authorization exec default none
aaa accounting commands default none
aaa accounting exec default none
These commands set the default method list for each of the configurable
AAA options in order to match a non-AAA system (achieved by the param-
eter directly after the default word; local here meaning the local user-
name/password database, and none meaning do nothing).
The AAA system applies to management interfaces that are capable of
hosting CLI connections such as the console interface or any of the
telnet/vty connections. These interfaces are collectively known as lines
and are part of the standard system configuration and allow fine tuning of
the operation of the CLI, such as screen width, height, and inactivity
timeout before logging out. The line configuration menu is extended to
allow the full AAA functionality to be managed per interface.

The aaa new-model command adds additional configuration commands
for AAA purposes to each line instance present within the D5 UEQ config-
uration. The actual commands added to each of the lines present within
the configuration are as follows:
Per line AAA commands automatically added by the aaa new-
model command
login authentication default
enable authentication default
authorization commands default
authorization exec default
accounting commands 0 default
accounting exec default
All these commands reference the default method-list discussed earlier.
The result of the aaa new-model command is to enable the AAA service,
explicitly setup the default method lists for all of the AAA interfaces
(authn, authz and acct) and then setup each lines AAA configuration to
point to the default method list. At this point, RADIUS has still not been
enabled for AAA authentication, even though the server details and the
server groups have been setup.
In order to enable RADIUS to be used for AAA, the default login and
enable authentication method lists must be updated to reference the
RADIUS server groups that have been setup. This is accomplished as
follows:
Procedure 15-4 Setup default method lists for RADI US
D5(config)#aaa authentication login default group RAD-SRV-GRP local
D5(config)#aaa authentication enable default group RAD-SRV-GRP local#
End of procedure
At this point, RADIUS is now in operation for login and enable authentica-
tion.
The previous paragraphs attempted to put in context the elements of
configuration used to setup AAA services. A considerable number of
configuration settings occur automatically as a result of the aaa new-
model command. The full set of configuration commands follow.

D5(config)#
D5(config)#aaa new-model
D5(config)#aaa authentication login default group RAD-SRV-GRP local
D5(config)#aaa authentication enable default group RAD-SRV-GRP local
End of procedure
This configuration sets up two RADIUS servers, adds them to the server-
group called RAD-SRV-GRP, and then modifies the default method list for
login and enable. The method lists are constructed so that the RADIUS
server group is used to authenticate the login and enable users, but if
these servers can not be contacted, the method-list moves on to the next
available option, in this case the special local case where the local user-
name/password database is used to authenticate login and enable.
This configuration relies on the aaa new-model command to create the
six different default method-lists (two for authn, two for authz and two
for acct), and apply them to every single line, changing the default
method lists applied to every line.

Disabling AAA When AAA services are no longer required on the D5 UEQ, run the no aaa
new-model command. This will remove all of the defined method-lists as
well as removing all the method lists assigned to the different AAA inter-
faces on each line. The no version of this command does not remove the
RADIUS server or RADIUS server-group settings.
Logging of AAA details During the operation of the AAA service and RADIUS, there should be no
logging of error conditions. However, if issues occur such as login failures,
loss of connectivity to remote authentication servers, etc, information
concerning these issues get logged in the D5 UEQ event log and is also
sent to remote syslog servers.
Further RADIUS examples. Once the AAA service is running and RADIUS servers are defined, it is
possible to consider more advanced configuration settings, through the
use of additional server groups (listing applicable RADIUS server details)
and method lists (where combinations of AAA server groups and
local/none settings can be lined up in any order to meet the customers
requirements).
One point to consider with the more advanced configurations is that there
are finite numbers of AAA elements that can be used. The D5 UEQ
supports up to three separate server groups, and three separate method
lists. Any advanced setup must fit within these constraints.
An advanced example follows:
D5(config)#radius-server host 192.168.250.10 key abc123
D5(config)#radius-server host 10.250.4.149 key abc123
D5(config)#aaa group server radius ADMIN-SG
D5(config-sg-radius)#server 192.168.250.10
D5(config-sg-radius)#server 10.250.4.149
D5(config-sg-radius)#exit
D5(config)#aaa group server radius OPS-SG
D5(config-sg-radius)#server 10.250.4.149
D5 (config-sg-radius)#exit

D5 (config-line)#exit
D5 (config)# line vty 2 2
D5 (config-line)#login authentication OPS-ML
D5 (config-line)#exit
This example shows two RADIUS server groups being defined, and two
separate, named method lists, one called ADMIN-ML, the other OPS-ML.
These method lists link to the server groups, identifying what service
groups to rely upon for login authentication. Note that the vty 0 and 1 are
configured to use the ADMIN-ML method list, ONLY for login, while vty 2
is configured to use the OPS-ML method list, again ONLY for login. Once
the login is successful, the current configuration example which assigns
nothing to the enable level, but relies on the default option which is to
use the local username/password database.
RADIUS Protocol Operation The RADIUS protocol specification covers AAA capabilities for network
services such as PPP and SLIP as well as for login and enable services.
Since the D5 UEQ only supports login and enable services, only a subset
of the specification applies.
RADI US Server and Server
Group Operation
The RADIUS protocol specification details the interactions between a
single RADIUS server and a RADIUS client in a fault-free network. It does
not address server/network fault scenarios or multiple server configura-
tions. The D5 UEQ must, of course, recognize server/network failures
during RADIUS exchanges and gracefully recover if multiple servers are
defined (which is an allowed configuration option).
Global Enable Password on
SecureI D Systems
As stated previously, typical login to a D5 UEQ consists of a login user
name and a password. Once logged in, a user has minimal access to the
CLI, requiring another password, known as the enable password, to be
entered. When AAA/Authentication is enabled, the username, login pass-
word and enable password are all stored on a remote Authentication
server and are passed to the server for validation during login to allow
access to the D5 UEQ.
Some MSOs rely on a secureID system, based on physical cards that
generate one-time passwords used in place of actual passwords. A new
one-time password is generated periodically (e.g. once per minute) and is

15 Security
supplied with a users unique username as part of the login process. This
removes the need to store any passwords on an Authentication server or
forcing users to change their passwords regularly.
In Release 3.0.1, we identified the need to create an approach to login
directly to the enable mode (without needing to supply the login pass-
word). In this mode, the user will have a different login name to allow the
AAA system to identify the user to be logged directly into the enable mode.
This will quicken user access to the D5 UEQ, removing the current delay
associated with waiting for the physical access-card to readout a new one-
time key.
This particular approach of direct to enable, used in mixed
Radius/TACACS+ Authentication models, with the global enable password,
can also be used when TACACS+ is unreachable.
When TACACS+ Authentication/Authorization servers are down/unreach-
able, the AAA method lists are setup to ensure that an AAA method is used
before any local methods are used.
The following example identifies how this feature is used:
D5(config)#tacacs-server host 192.168.250.188 key abc123
D5(config)#enable global-password test123
D5(config)#aaa new-model tacacs+
D5(config)#aaa authentication enable default local
This will allow a user to login to the D5 UEQ using the account provisioned
on the TACACS+ server at 192.168.250.188 and enable with the global
password test123.
The following example identifies the current AAA login approach based on
Radius to authenticate the login user and TACACS+ authorization:
D5(config)#aaa new-model
D5(config)#aaa authentication login default group radius local
D5(config)#aaa authorization exec default group tacacs+
D5(config)#aaa authorization commands default group tacacs+ none
Since the SecureID cards validate users by requiring them to enter their
username and the currently visible passcode on the SecureID card, the D5
UEQ AAA system relies on the above method lists for authentication and
authorization to accept the login and assign the correct privilege level to
the user.
Once authenticated, the AAA state machine will present a command shell
to the user. To do this, it will authorize access to the shell using shell
(exec) authorization to the remote TACACS+ server. The D5 UEQ will
ARRI S D5 Universal Edge QAM

2003-2010 ARRIS Group, Inc.
automatically supply the login credentials to the TACACS+ authorization
server and wait for the server response to decide upon what to present to
the user (namely a basic login prompt or an enable prompt).
Once the D5 UEQ has completed the RADIUS Authentication and the
TACACS+ Authorization (shell/exec) and presented the user a login
prompt, it will authorize all subsequently entered CLI commands with the
configured TACACS+ command authorization server. The users ability to
run CLI commands is now completely dependent on how the TACACS+
server has been configured and the priority levels associated with each
command.

The ARRIS D5 UEQ CLI is a fully functional interface that enables users to
enter commands to create, manage, display and remove networks, VTY
users, and other system entities. All D5 UEQ controls can be issued via the
CLI after hardware installation is complete.
The CLI can be utilized either from the serial port or through a remote
network connection such as telnet or secure shell. The CLI is a straightfor-
ward command interface that is intended to follow the familiar syntax of
many other communications products.
Type commands on a single line. Execute the commands using the Enter
key. The CLI provides command help and completion. It also provides
keyboard control sequences which allow a user to move around a
command line and scroll through a buffer that contains recently entered
commands.

16 CLI Overview
Accessing the D5 UEQ
There are two ways to access the D5 UEQ CLI. The first is via direct serial
access from the RS/232 (CLI or |0|0|) interface located on the front panel.
The second is remotely using TCP/IP and telnet, or secure shell (ssh). For
remote access, at least one interface for management access must be
designated. The MGT FastEthernet interface on the WAN card is intended
for system management access.
CAUTI ON
If more than one user is on simultaneous telnet sessions configuring the
same parameter on the D5 UEQ, you have the potential to create
unexpected results. E.g., session one is configuring banner one while
session two is configuring banner two and then you end session one
and exit session two, the banner one would be wiped out and a
subsequent write command would cement the wrong banner. This could
cause confusion in the field (for more significant commands) and
unexpected results. It is recommended that you run the command
systat to display the current users.
CLI Command Modes
The D5 UEQ supports hundreds of CLI commands. They are grouped into
different functional modes. The first set of commands is available to all
users including those with non-Privilege access. Most of these commands
are used to show system status. They are available when the D5 UEQ is in
User EXEC mode or any other mode.
The other modes are available only to users with Privilege EXEC access.
These commands are more powerful and can be used to reconfigure the
system or to adjust system performance.
The following table lists some of the command modes and some of the
commands needed to change from one mode to another.

Command Completion and Parameter Prompting
Press the Tab key to complete a partially-typed command. If the tab key
is unable to uniquely identify a command, (for example, co could be
completed as configure or copy) the D5 UEQ console beeps and does a
partial-completion of the command (completing the characters which are
common to the multiple commands).
Example:
# con<tab>
# configure
The ? (question mark) key has two functions:
When added to the end of a partially-typed set of characters, the D5
UEQ lists commands that start with the current fragment.
When separated from the command by one or more spaces, the D5
UEQ lists valid additional commands, parameters or values that must
follow the currently typed command, on the same line.

NO Commands
The [no] form of a command is used to negate a specific function. A
slot/port with one parameter supports the [no] form automatically. If a
slot/port has two or more parameters, you must specify which parameter
the [no] is designated. It is important to specify this as it can have varying
effects depending on the command, such as:
disabling the feature
disabling a particular option of the feature
restoring default settings
removing a single entry which was previously configured
Local Authorization
A privilege exec command is provided to allow an operator to change the
privilege level of a command. Using this command, an operator can recon-
figure any CLI command to a specific privilege level. This command is set
at privilege level 15.
A privilege reset command is provided to allow an operator to restore a
command to its default privilege level. Using this command, an operator
can reconfigure any CLI command to its default privilege level.
When a user logs into a D5 UEQ, they are considered to be unprivileged
and can only run commands that are available at level 0. A user can gain
access to commands at a higher privilege level by enabling access to that
level.
The enable command will take an optional argument to allow the user to
specify the level they wish to escalate their privilege. If the optional argu-
ment is omitted, it is treated as if the user issued the command with an
argument of 15.
The D5 UEQ will prune the list of available commands such that only the
commands a user is privileged to execute are made available on the CLI.
NOTE
Auto complete will not show options that are not available. When a user
presses the? key to get a list of commands or command options, the D5
UEQ will only present those options that the user is authorized to
execute.

The D5 UEQ supports a local privilege command that is used to assign
command privilege levels between 0 and 15. Level 0 is used to identify only
the commands available from the login prompt, while level 15 is the
highest privilege level, and is associated with the enable commands.
NOTE
If a command has been assigned a privilege level of n, then that
command is not available to enable modes of less than n, where n is an
integer in the range [0,15].
For example The following commands will set the two CLI commands
to level 5 and 6, respectively:
D5>configure terminal
D5#privilege exec level 5 "show video erm"
D5#privilege exec level 6 "show video sessions"
D5#end
Now, exit privilege mode and enable level 5 with the following commands:
D5#disable
D5>enable 5
At this point, show video erm would be allowed but show video sessions
would not allowed.
Privilege Level 0 Commands Any command not in the table below will have a default privilege level of

CLI Output Filtering
The D5 UEQ provides output filtering commands. You can use them to
reduce the amount of output sent to the screen by certain commands.
The CLI permits the following types of filtering:
Begin - displays output beginning with the first line that contains the
text string or regular expression
Include - displays output lines that contain the text string or regular
expression and excludes lines that do not contain the text string or
regular expression
Exclude - displays output lines that do not contain the text string or
regular expression and excludes lines that do contain the text string or
regular expression
The following CLI options have been added to the show commands:
[| {begin| include| exclude} [] regular expression []]
To use this functionality, enter a show command as normal but add a
space followed by the pipe character (| ) at the end of the command line.
Then add one of the keywords begin, include, or exclude, along with
the regular expression that you want to filter or search on.
Expanded Syntax
show any-command | begin regular expression
show any-command | include regular expression
show any-command | exclude regular expression
You specify output filtering by appending a vertical bar character to the
end of a command, followed by the filtering command and its arguments.
The ? (help) command prints a brief summary of the commands:
Example:
D5#show run | ?
begi n Begi n wi t h t he l i ne t hat mat ches
i ncl ude I ncl ude l i nes t hat mat ch
excl ude Excl ude l i nes t hat mat ch

This chapter provides detailed descriptions of each of ARRIS D5 UEQ CLI
commands.
When you log in to the CLI, you are in User EXEC mode. This is the initial active
mode accessed when a user logs into the CLI after powering up the D5 UEQ.
User EXEC User EXEC commands are used for everyday system moni-
toring. They allow you to change terminal settings on a temporary basis,
perform basic tests and show system information. The prompt D5> indicates
User EXEC mode.
The User Show commands are part of the User EXEC mode. The prompt will
be D5> as in the User EXEC mode. The User Show commands display system
information.
Privilege EXEC The Privilege EXEC mode commands are used to set oper-
ating parameters. If a Privilege EXEC password exists, the CLI prompts you to
enter it to gain access. The password does not appear on the screen. Privilege
EXEC mode includes the User EXEC commands.
To enter Privilege EXEC mode, enter the enable command at the D5>
prompt. The prompt changes to D5#. If no enable password is configured,
any user may enter Privilege EXEC mode without authentication.
Global Configuration Global Configuration commands apply to features
that affect the entire system. These commands apply to system features and
enable routing functions.
Enter configure terminal at the command prompt in Privilege EXEC mode
to enter the Global Configure mode. The prompt will change to
D5<config>#. To return to Privilege EXEC mode, enter exit or press
Ctrl+Z.
I nterface Configuration Mode These modes can be entered from the
Global Configuration mode by typing interface <string>. For more information
of the types of Mode(s), see CLI Command Descriptions, page 17-1. They are

channel width
Purpose Configures the distance between center frequencies Use the [no] version of
the command to return to the default width.
Previously, for example, an operator could drop the effective channel width of
an Annex A channel using the video symbol-rate command. The width of
the channel (in terms of the bump on the scope) drops according to the
symbol rate but the channels remain centered at 8Mhz intervals according to
Annex A characteristics. So, on a scope, if you dropped the symbol rate to
5,000,000, you would end up with gaps between each of your four channels
which would still have a total span of 32 Mhz of an Annex A Quad. Now, if you
configured the symbol rate to give a 6Mhz channel, you could then set the
channel width to 6 Mhz and the channels would all be tightly adjacent on a
scope and the quad would occupy 24 Mhz of bandwidth.
NOTE
The symbol rate must be small enough to prevent overlapping of adjacent
channels.
