June 6, 2016 — VIAVI Solutions® introduces the PathTrak PNM HomeTrak for install validation. Leveraging existing PathTrak PNM data, HomeTrak provides a live spot check to determine if an install is free from physical layer impairments that may impact service quality or cause an early life fail triggering a repeat truck roll. PathTrak PNM HomeTrak identifies plant weaknesses which manifest as upstream impairments that can impact service performance, a powerful tool based on proven CableLabs® technology.
- Know the physical install is good before you leave the customer site
- Simple 'traffic light' color coding shows if impairments are present and can be fixed locally or should be handed off to network groups
- Higher quality 'validated' installs mean better DOCSIS 3.1 service performance
- Increase first time fix/install rate and reduce repeat truck rolls
Actionable insight; simple tool tells if you have a robust install
Use Case: Post install/repair, check the install for physical layer impairments using your phone or tablet; Green lights – you're good to go, Amber – problem exists between tap port and CPE that should be fixed before leaving, Red – impairment is in the network feeding the drop, best hand the fault off to networks.
