Changing cable modems

If I’m just swapping out my existing cable modem for a newer cable modem (I own both), with no change in my Cox service, and I’m not a “gigablast” subscriber, will I need to contact Cox’s TS department? Or is this an action that, assuming my internet service and WiFi network function normally with the new cable modem installed, I can do entirely on my own? Thank you.

    The modem must also meet the minimum requirements for your subscription level and not be assigned to another account. Visit for a complete list of modems approved for use on our network by tier of service.

      Thank you Bruce. My new modem is Cox certified and is Docsis 3.0 8x4.
