This allows for an integrated CCAP to be separated into two components: the CCAP Core and the Remote PHY Device (RPD) and describes the interfaces between them.
Sundaresan said that a technical report of Remote MAC-PHY, which combines the PHY with the media access controller that handles the generation of data in a single device that sits at the edge of the network.
