Viavi Solutions has introduced new test and measurement solutions to help service providers and contractors validate, qualify and troubleshoot cable and fiber broadband networks. The two new solutions from VIAVI, the DSP TDR Time Domain Reflectometer and the OCC-4056C DWDM Optical Channel Checker, deliver fast and accurate performance analysis and troubleshooting to ensure successful network installation and operation.
Multiple system operators (MSOs) and cable technicians are under enormous pressure to deploy new services in a timely manner, as well as to quickly and accurately find cable faults to restore service as soon as possible. Moreover, in today’s evolving landscape, the stakes are even higher as cable networks are now positioned to take on a larger role in mobile backhaul for 5G with new capabilities enabled by DOCSIS 3.1 and distributed architectures such as Remote PHY.
“VIAVI is at the forefront of testing cutting-edge technologies, including Remote PHY, 5G, DOCSIS 3.1 and FTTH/PON, providing a smooth and reliable path through any access technology transition across the entire network lifecycle,” said Kevin Oliver, Vice President and General Manager, Converged Instruments and Virtual Test, VIAVI. “Built on decades of test and measurement expertise, our comprehensive portfolio of solutions enables network technicians to successfully deploy, maintain, optimize and evolve complex networks, delivering outstanding quality of experience.”
