Advanced Configuration Lab
As MSOs move from conventional Cable Modem Termination Systems (CMTS) systems to virtual CMTS (vCMTS) systems, there is a fear that new skills will be needed to manage them. Traditionally the provisioning and management of these systems have been done through CLI methods; with the advent of vCMTS systems, this is no longer the case. Being software and API driven, these systems are provisioned and managed through a GUI front end. In the case of Cisco's Cloud Native Broadband Router (cnBR), this front end is Cisco's Operation's Hub (OPS HUB). This lab aims to show that while these operations differ from CLI provisioning, no new skill set is needed.
