The article features the advantages of service routing for cable multiple system operators (MSO). These routers must be advanced, service-aware platforms designed from the ground up to guarantee the highest levels of service availability and service quality from hardware and software architectures. In addition, service management must be tightly integrated with these service routers to ensure ongoing service reliability and minimize operational costs.

Holddown refers to a state of a route when the router will neither advertise the route nor accept the advertisements about the route for a specific length of time. It is used to flush bad information about a route from all routers in the network....
