How is this a advertisement ? Its a plea for help and a heads up to Mikrotik that cable based ISP client models are about to change radically and if Mikrotik does not support it, they will be shut out of the market. For example, I will not be able to deploy CCR1036's into high end homes. I don't know what percentage of the market this represents to Mikrotik, so, maybe it does not matter, maybe it does. Cable represents 80%+ of homes in the US. The time is now to get on board. I NEED Mikrotik. Ive never used anything else for the last 10 years. All my high end work is based on the networking in these homes and i need Mikrotik as the router. So this thread is a plea for help. Cable Labs is in bed with various CPE makers like Arris, Netgear, Cisco, Technicolor to name a few and I DO NOT WANT TO BE FORCED To USE THOSE PRODUCTS.
I posted about this in the appropriate forum, new features, and that thread was locked. Thats fine as it was indeed duplicate. However I would suggest to mods that THIS thread needs to be moved. I put it in the wrong forum. It needs to be in new features. The other thread should be deleted.
From that thread I would like to respond to a post.
I am really starting to believe that you are shareholder in one of key companies and you want to promote this craziness...
I am not promoting this. I am actively fighting this. I feel Cable Labs is a evil entity.

I am the class representative in a major class action lawsuit against Arris and Intel over the truly terrible Intel Puma modem chip. I run https://www.Badmodems.com
. So I think all the cable modem mfgrs hate me.
Im the guy behind this lawsuit https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/04/1 ... a_6_arris/
Im after PERFORMANCE.. Mikrotik defines that. The CCR1036 is the best way to go for the new 10Gbps home networks. I have them deployed in 100+ super high end homes right now. I can't live without Mikrotik routers.. So this BS from Cable Labs is terrible for me because it may force me to use HORRIBLE performance gateway/modem/routers supplied by the cable company VS a CCR.
So im desperate. I know beta testers in Comcast now with Micronets in use. Comcast is already up and running in beta. This is 6 months away... Arris, Netgear and others are already in the beta with hardware in use.
Also from the other thread
agree that it would be nice if Mikrotik came up with some SDN-SD-WAN-ish orchestration solution. But this area is just so over-hyped for the moment and everyone rushes to be the self proclaimed "leader".
It's impossible to support every new SDN-concept or VPN solution that pops up once a week nowadays.
This is Cable Labs. Its DOCSIS. Every cable modem on earth uses this. So THIS SDN has already won and will dominate homes and small buis as Cable Internet is 89% of internet users in the US. https://broadbandnow.com/Cable
and they will ALL go Micronet starting in 2020.
SO.. I feel strongly that Mikrotik should partner right away and get on board.
Error0x29A: According to the links above trials are scheduled in early 2020, followed by devices certification process so it is still a couple years away before it is adopted.
Betas, with 4 different manufacturers, is already underway in homes on Comcast networks. Any existing DOCSIS 3.1 modem/gateway can run it, its just a firmware update. Its also just firmware updates for existing CMTS and routers at the ISP. So there really is not a delay like there is for hardware certification. Cable Labs has been working on it quietly with Comcast and Arris for 4 years already.
I am sorry I am so passionate about this. I hate the cable companies and their CPE gear is junk. I do not want to be stuck with it. The standard looks pretty easy and based on other open standards. Should be reasonably easy.
