CATV network testing simplified

With an embedded DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem, the CX150-D3+ supports full upstream and downstream 8x4 channel bonding, IPv6 addressing and Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption used in next generation DOCSIS 3.0 networks. Cable modem emulation offered by both units provides valuable statistics pertaining to the upstream and downstream paths and related servers for video, Internet and VoIP traffic. Triple Play services can be verified on either the RF and/or LAN interfaces while the unique pass-through mode provides true modem emulation and Ethernet traffic statistics. The Remote View option allows viewing of the return path monitoring results from a CX180R headend system.

Wireless connectivity has been enhanced – field technicians now have the option to upload test results via Bluetooth, 802.11b/g/n WiFi or 3G UMTS connections (in addition to USB memory stick and FTP capabilities already supported).
