May 29, 2018 — As network technology evolves, VIAVI Solutions help techs easily adapt to new test needs. As fiber goes deeper into the HFC network, techs can encounter situations that require testing optical levels, or making clean, reliable fiber connections. DSP meters now support VIAVI fiber tools, including the MP-60/80 USB thumb drive-sized optical power meter, and the P5000i fiber scope.
Many networks are opting for higher spectrum efficiency in the return band and turning up OFDMa signals. In addition to a wide array of DOCSIS 3.1 measurements, cable modem statistics now include an indication of the presence of an OFDMa signal, its frequency range, any exclusion zones, and transmit power.
As networks evolve with technologies to provide customers with higher speeds, the home network remains relatively unchanged. Susceptible to craftsmanship faults or damaged/bad cable/components, the home network can be a source of interfering leakage or ingress on the return band. Techs can proactively clear the home network for high bandwidth services with a pressure test in which high level signals are injected to accentuate leaks for simple detection with their DSP or ONX meter.
