Acterna to demo new products
ANAHEIM, Calif.-Acterna's Cable Networks Division will be demonstrating new cable modem activation tools at the Western Show, including its Digital Service Activation Meter (DSAM), which offers the cable modem installer a way to increase deployment of high-speed cable modem services.
Using digital signal processing and integrated DOCSIS/EuroDOCSIS chipset technology, the meter communicates with the network's cable modem termination system to exercise a cable modem installation from the subscriber's location. The DSAM uses the DOCSIS protocol and modulation formats to perform tests in-band and in-service, without the need for a separate test carrier.
Also on display will be the Sympulse Loop Verification Meter, a handheld return path certification device for high-speed services.
