OneExpert CATV ONX-630 & SCU-1800
Maximizing the spectrum efficiency of DOCSIS 3.1® technology requires careful
and consistent attention to network maintenance. While the broadband frequency
response test in both the forward path (downstream) and the return path (upstream)
is a core requirement of any cable network maintenance plan, maintaining cable
networks requires more than sweep.
The OneExpert CATV ONX-630 is a powerful meter for maintaining HFC networks,
including DOCSIS 3.1 performance analysis, spectrum analyzer, and forward and reverse
sweep measurements. The headend/hub rack-mounted SCU-1800 Sweep Control Unit
provides downstream sweep to 1.2 GHz and upstream sweep to 204 MHz on up to 16
ports (supports OneExpert CATV ONX-630 sweep).
The ONX-630 works with existing Stealth Digital
Analyzer (SDA) rack-mounted sweep gear
(SDA-5500 and SDA-5510) located at headend
and hub sites. Additionally, OneExpert meters
can sweep side-by-side with DSAM-6300 meters.
Therefore, major test process/infrastructure
modifications are not required when ONX-630s
are added to a department’s instrument inventory.
Moving forward, an advanced sweep transceiver –
the SCU-1800 Sweep Control Unit – offers updated,
space saving hardware and simple browser
Viavi Solutions has a long history of integrating
the high-level functions and advanced technology
necessary for maintaining cable networks with
scalable hardware and software platforms. Viavi
delivers sweep-meter solutions unequalled in
advanced test and measurement performance.
