VeEX, a global player in telecom, CATV, fibre, transport and broadband access, has announced the newly enhanced CaLan 3010H+ CaTV sweep system will make its debut at the ANGA COM 2016 Conference and Exhibition.
DOCSIS 3.1 will utilize previously unused and untested frequency spectrum exposing potential trouble for operators. Initial Downstream expansions are expected to go to 1.2 GHz evolving later to 1.8 GHz while Upstream will extend to 85 MHz or 204 MHz depending on market or MSO service delivery objectives.
The completely redesigned CaLan 3010H+ headend unit features multiple key enhancements for DOCSIS 3.1 network deployment and expansion. The unit boasts a high performance, 1.8 GHz Transmitter and a low noise, 240 MHz Receiver capable of sweeping the entire Forward and Return path respectively. The 3010H+ works in conjunction with a range of VeEX products including the new AT3000 RF Switch Multiplexer, the CX380s-D3 and the newly released CX380s-D3.1 platform. The 3010H+ is also compatible with Sunrise Telecom’s CM2800 and CM3800 testers which now form part of the VeEX CaTV product portfolio.
“Sweep techniques gained from decades of experience will once again play a pivotal role in service prequalification, installation, and maintenance of DOCSIS 3.1 networks,” said Mike Venter, VP Sales and Marketing, EMEA of VeEX Inc. “The upgraded CaLan Sweep System not only delivers the same tried and tested, peace of mind performance as its predecessor, but protects previous test equipment investments of several key MSOs across Europe through backwards compatibility with legacy sweep spectrums,” he added.
