All Service Providers and especially smaller Private Cable Operators (PCO’s) that support Multi-family housing are challenged when monitoring their access networks proactively. There is a new product on the market offered by Diablo Data Networks called Gunslinger that can give PCO’s great visibility into the health of the network supporting their customers. You can find them here. They can monitor DOCSIS networks and provide provisioning for cable modems and customer equipment.
Its worth a look.
I have had the pleasure of working with Private Cable Operators recently on DOCSIS 3.0 deployments using various mini-CMTS systems. Sometimes the documentation is hard to find. Below are links to the published documents that I have collected.

Simplify. That’s my goal, and this collection of thoughts is part of that effort. I am clearing the clutter and saving my sanity in the process.
The pages and posts here are going to help me when I need to recall a trick or two, and if you try something I post I hope it helps you out. I don’t live on this site, so I haven’t turned on comments because I wouldn’t want you to be disappointed when a response would be late in coming. But who knows? I might change my mind.
