S-A launches upgrade
Release 1.4 is here! Maybe not as highly anticipated as Sony Play Station 2, but full of promise, Scientific-Atlanta 's Transmission Network Control System 1.4 software will give cable operators iTV support and monitor the systems that can increase subscriber satisfaction and operator revenues.
Operators will be able to recognize, troubleshoot and correct problems in their cable networks, possibly before subscribers even notice a glitch.
New to the 1.4 version is Alarm Correlation - a logic-based analysis of alarms that can isolate faulty network components by evaluating predefined logic trees that access both alarms and the current status of network devices.
