  • Page 34: Ip Addresses And Subnets

    Hitron CODA-4x8x User’s Guide Your CODA-4x8x supports DOCSIS version 3.0. 3.1.2 IP Addresses and Subnets Every computer on the Internet must have a unique Internet Protocol (IP) address. The IP address works much like a street address, in that it identifies a specific location to which information is transmitted.
  • Page 35: Subnets

    Hitron CODA-4x8x User’s Guide The private network is your Local Area Network (LAN) and Wireless Local Area  Network (WLAN), if enabled. You are free to assign IP addresses to computers on the LAN and WLAN manually, or to allow the CODA-4x8x to assign them automatically via DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol).
  • Page 36: Dhcp

    Hitron CODA-4x8x User’s Guide The following table shows a subnet mask that “masks” the first twenty-four bits of the IP address, in both its decimal and binary notation. Table 7: Subnet Mask: Decimal and Binary 11111111 11111111 11111111 00000000 This shows that in this subnet, the first three octets (192.168.1, in the example IP address) define the main network, and the final octet (1, in the example IP address) defines the computer’s address on the subnet.
  • Page 37: Dhcp Lease

    Hitron CODA-4x8x User’s Guide 3.1.4 DHCP Lease “DHCP lease” refers to the length of time for which a DHCP server allows a DHCP client to use an IP address. Usually, a DHCP client will request a DHCP lease renewal before the lease time is up, and can continue to use the IP address for an additional period.
  • Page 38: Routing Mode

    Hitron CODA-4x8x User’s Guide 3.1.6 Routing Mode When your CODA-4x8x is in routing mode, it acts as a gateway for computers on the LAN to access the Internet. The service provider assigns an IP address to the CODA- 4x8x on the WAN, and all traffic for LAN computers is sent to that IP address. The CODA-4x8x assigns private IP addresses to LAN computers (when DHCP is active), and transmits the relevant traffic to each private IP address.

  • Page 41: Horizontal Vs. Vertical Communications

    Hitron CODA-4x8x User’s Guide MoCA traffic on the coax network does not interfere with existing broadcasts from cable, telco, IPTV or satellite service providers, as it makes use of a previously- unused segment of the RF spectrum. The medium is ideal for real-time applications, providing high data throughput (100Mbps~1Gbps) with low latency, jitter or data loss.

    Hitron CODA-4x8x User’s Guide Figure 14: Traditional Vertical CATV vs. Horizontal MoCA Networking 3.1.12.2 Example MoCA Mesh Network MoCA devices form a full “mesh”, or peer-to-peer network (where all devices communicate directly with one another). In the following example, four MoCA devices connect directly to and from one another, via ECBs, forming 12 unique MoCA links (or 6 bidirectional links).
  • Page 43: Ofdm

    Hitron CODA-4x8x User’s Guide Figure 15: Example MoCA Peer-to-Peer Network 3.1.13 OFDM Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiplexing (OFDM) is a physical-layer data encoding method for transmitting and receiving data on Radio Frequency (RF) media, such as the CODA-4x8x’s cable connection. OFDM takes a single wide-band signal and separates it into multiple simultaneous subcarriers across the available RF spectrum, separated by the minimum frequency necessary to ensure non-interference among sub-carriers.
  • Page 44: Ofdma

    Hitron CODA-4x8x User’s Guide 3.1.15 OFDMA Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) is a multiuser adaptation of OFDM (see OFDM on page 28) that permits simultaneous use by multiple users by assigning a specific group of OFDM subcarriers to each individual user.
