DOCSIS Modem Status Definitions

There is exhausting documentation on about cable modems state. It`s called "Troubleshooting uBR Cable Modems Not Coming Online"
Although it`s called uBR it`s still applied to all DOCSIS 1.x & 2.0 CM`s. For example I have four Arris C3 CMTS & one Motorola BSR1000 CMTS. The CM states is the same.
Look this documentation in>Search
Concerning to your question reject(c) means:
Cable Modem has failed registration due to bad class of service (COS).

Typically this is caused by:
- CMTS router is unable or unwilling to grant a particular requested COS
- Misconfigured parameter(s) in Class of Service option in DOCSIS CPE Configurator, for example having two classes of service with the same ID.

Hope my answer helps you :)
