Electroline specializes in the design and supply of remote monitoring and management solutions that are built on a DOCSIS modem platform. The company has announced a new model – DVM7600 – that will continuously scan all digital channels being transported on an HFC network’s coaxial segments and will report, to the OSS, impairments that can impact the subscriber’s quality of service. It monitors both the RF performance of the access network, but also can dive into the MPEG transport stream to catch things that really impact the service quality experienced by the subscriber.
The DVM can be installed strategically at many points around the coaxial network and even at the subscriber premises to aid the maintenance staff in localizing the root cause of network degradations. The DVM is environmentally hardened, is built on a DOCSIS 3.0 platform, integrates easily in back office systems and does not require separate communication facilities which steal RF spectrum from revenue generating services.
