List Options Option Definition Unit of Measure
Access point The capability to provide wireless network connectivity to multiple clients. For the purposes of this specification, Access Point functionality includes only IEEE 802.11 (Wi-Fi) connectivity. None
CableCARD The capability to decrypt premium audio/video content and services and provide other network control functions via a plug-in Conditional Access module that complies with the ANSI/SCTE 28 HOST-POD Interface Standard1. None
Digital video recorder Digital Video Recorder (DVR) is a feature that records television signals on a hard disk drive (HDD) or other non-volatile storage device integrated into the STB or DVG for playback at an arbitrary time. A DVR includes features such as: Play, Record, Pause, Fast Forward (FF), and Fast Rewind (FR). STBs or DVGs that only support buffering or a Service Provider network-based ÒDVRÓ service are not considered DVR STBs or DVGs for purposes of this specification. The presence of DVR functionality does not mean the device is defined to be a STB or DVG. None
DOCSIS The capability to distribute data and audio/video content over cable television infrastructure in accordance with the CableLabs¨ Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification2. None
High efficiency video processing Video decoding providing compression efficiency significantly higher than H.264/AVC, for example HEVC (H.265). None
Home network interface An interface with external devices over a local area network (example: Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 802.11 (Wireless-Fidelity or Wi- Fi), Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA), HomePNA alliance (HPNA), IEEE 802.3, HomePlug AV) that is capable of transmitting video content. None
Multi input multi output wireless IEEE 802.11n/ac and related MIMO enabled Wi-Fi functionality that supports more than one spatial stream in both send and receive. When using the notation MIMO AxB: A is considered the number of spatial streams while B is the number of antennas supported. A spatial stream is an independent and separately encoded data signal. None
Multi room The capability to provide independent live audio/video content to multiple devices (2 or more Clients) or support pause/time-shifting capability for otherwise standalone IP or Thin- client STBs within a single family living unit. This definition does not include the capability to manage gateway services for multi-subscriber scenarios. None
Multi stream A STB or DVG feature that allows the device to receive multiple independent streams of video content for use with one or more Clients, one or more directly connected Display Devices, or a DVR, etc. This definition does not include the capability to manage gateway services for multi-subscriber scenarios. None
None None None
Not applicable Not applicable None
Other Other None
Router The capability to determine the optimal path along which network traffic should be forwarded. Routers forward packets from one network to another based on network layer information. Router functionality includes Access Point functionality. None
Telephony The ability to provide analog telephone service through one or more RJ11 or RJ14 jacks. None
Unknown Unknown None
