Re: Cisco's CNR vs ISC Bind/DHCP

If you are looking at CNR and are running in a cable modem

Have you inquired/looked at the Cisco CSRC product for provisioning it?

You might want to look at CNR as it is part of the CSRC solution for provisioning/managing not only Cisco but any DOCSIS compliant cable modem

I would agree with your conclusion, if your base assumption is
correct, which it is not. Right now, we are running CNR in production
in one cable modem network. We are running the ISC DHCP/DNS suite on
several other networks, one of them cable modem.

We are about to deploy an additional cable network and a DSL
network. Before using ISC again, I wanted to check that there had
been no change in Cisco CNR status, that might lead us to do a full
blown evaluation again (these things cost money.) I haven't turned up
any evidence that there have been any changes useful to larger
installations like ours. If you have information to the contrary,
please let me know.
