Upstream Analyzer is a software-based analyzer that works with Cisco CMTS. There is no need for any expensive equipment, splitters or cables to view the upstream spectrum passing through the CMTS. You can view spectrum for 100% of the ports 24 x 7 x 365 anywhere you have Internet access. You can even view ingress under the carrier with one click. There is no need to move a cable modem to a different frequency to see what’s going on. Upstream Analyzer takes up no space in your headend, and is much less expensive than hardware-based spectrum analyzers or monitors.
RF Inspector is a remote spectrum analyzer app that utilizes DOCSIS compatible technology in newer cable modems and set-top boxes to report the full spectrum for all channels (data and video) that is passing through the CPE. The RF Inspector server software collects the spectrum information and the RF Inspector app displays the spectrum information on a PC or mobile device just as it would appear on a spectrum analyzer. Spectrum can be viewed and analyzed remotely wherever there is Internet access, and you can even compare spectrum from two different devices at the same time. There's no need for expensive probes, and no need to drive to the customer premises to physically connect a meter.
