The DCE ensures that modems, set-top boxes and gateways are resilient to cable-plant noise interference so that MSOs can deliver the highest quality of service. As this industry moves to high channel counts – 24-bonded downstream channels and 8-bonded upstream channels – the DCE cost-effectively enables the impairment of these channels while maintaining synchronization between headend (HE) and customer-premises equipment (CPE).
“The cable and broadband industry will greatly benefit from this highly adaptable, software-based instrumentation solution,” said Averna’s Jean-Levy Beaudoin, Director of Business Development. “The DCE provides a significant competitive advantage over traditional hardware-based instruments, enabling MSOs and device-makers to efficiently simulate field environments and help the industry achieve higher quality of service.”
• Multiple channels: Up to 24-channel simultaneous processing (3x80 MHz input bandwidth for DS)
• Scalable: 8-DS channel blocks of 80 MHz can be added with additional modules
• Large frequency range: 65 MHz–1.004 GHz (DS) and 5 MHz–80 MHz (US)
• Real-time impairments:
• Intuitive interface: Real-time Spectral and Constellation displays
