Dynamic Steering Of Power-starved CMS, DSG-STBs, & MTAs (2010)

By Ayham Al-Banna, Tom Cloonan, ARRIS Group, Inc.

Power starvation of DOCSIS client devices is a serious problem caused by the insertion of a large number of RF splitters within the subscriber’s home coaxial network. This condition introduces significant attenuation in both the US and DS directions, causing the power-starved devices to suffer from degraded performance and service.

Several solutions that address this problem already exist. However, these solutions are either suboptimal or impractical. We propose a novel solution based on dynamic steering of power-starved devices that does not suffer from any of the drawbacks found in the existing solutions.
