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 configurability.
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.
