Does Netgear CM600 provide DHCP?

New customer here setting up home network.  Selected Netgear CM600 instead of leasing.  Will the CM600 provide DHCP, DNS, etc or do I need a separate router?  Specs for CM600 do not mention DHCP, etc and I see comments that it is strictly a bridge device.    Network includes wired LAN and Ubiquiti AP's.  If i need a separate router considering Ubiquiti's Security Gateway.  Anyone with similar setups?  Many thanks.

The CM600 is just a straight cable modem, so you'll need a router to handle your networking.
