This article focuses on monitoring multiservice capacity resources using recent enhancements to DOCSIS network management capabilities. Capacity planning provides the ability to estimate the number of services and subscribers that can be accommodated within a specific segment of the DOCSIS access network. The actual capacity of the DOCSIS segment is the function of a complex recipe including channel configuration, modulation profile, security configuration and other DOCSIS overhead. The capacity planning information rendered by even a simple model can provide the cable operator with valuable insight into the allocation of resources in the access segment.
