Incognito Announces DOCSIS 3.0-IPv6 Interoperability Program

Incognito Software, a supplier of device provisioning and network resource management systems, has created a DOCSIS 3.0-IPv6 Interoperability (interop) Program to help customer premise equipment (CPE) and Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS) vendors to test the provisioning of their products in a multi-vendor, IPv6 environment.

Incognito said the need for this type of interop program is underscored by the fact that the provisioning of DOCSIS 3.0 compliant equipment differs significantly from DOCSIS 1.x and 2.x equipment, since it relies on IPv6 addressing and DHCPv6 auto-configuration.

Incognito Software, in a co-operative partnership with Motorola, began development of a DOCSIS 3.0 provisioning module for its leading Broadband Command Center solution in 2006, responding to the growing need for operators to move to IPv6. The initial results of this co-operation initiative were demonstrated at the CableLabs ATP in December 2006.
