Thanks for the link.  The most obvious question to me is scalability.  What
box is going to be running AFTR to do all this translation?  It looks like
the B4 part is running on the customer's CPE, but if we need to move
hundreds of Mbps, if not Gbps, wouldn't that require some C/J/F class type
of box?

Comcast commissioned ISC to develop a working CGN.  We are in the final
release stages of our CGN product, AFTR.

You can go and download it now it you want.
