Cable operators looking to test and validate the services in the triple play bundle can now use Minacom  service level test automation equipment working in conjunction with products from AM Networks.

Minacom's PowerProbes (the 500 and 6000) can now perform non-intrusive RTP/IP loopback tests to troubleshoot and validate the quality of VoIP, digital TV, VOD, Internet and fax-over-IP services using AM Networks' DOCSIS power supply transponders as remote test probes.

Cable operators can quickly segment service quality issues with remote tests to any transponder in the HFC plant to speed troubleshooting and provide monitoring visibility. The DOCSIS 2.0-compliant management information bases (MIBs) in AM Networks' transponders can be queried by Minacom's DirectReach cable transponder test agent to retrieve performance and reliability data.
