This paper summarizes the practical use of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) using a commercially available package, FLOTHERM [1], in a tight and highly competitive marketplace to produce a functional pre-production piece of telecom gear with no prototyping for thermal issues. The paper highlights the direct production, noprototype, analytical thermal performance verification of a small CMTS (Cable Modem Termination System) used in telecom applications.
