CATV network testing simplified

An all-in-one, super-tech installation and maintenance tool for next generation CATV networks. The CX180-D3+ can be used at the headend for return path ingress scan and return path QAM analysis. Enhanced ingress monitoring in both the forward and reverse paths is possible across a 50dB dynamic range. Adjustable resolution bandwidths, measurement dwell times and attenuation provide spectrum analysis capabilities all optimized for CATV signal types and bandwidth.

The CX180-D3+ offers an integrated dual band DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem to provision 8x4 channel bonding used in high bandwidth DOCSIS 3.0 CATV networks. With the same powerful Signal Level Meter and QAM analyzer functions of the CX180+, advanced users will benefit from the greater sensitivity and lower noise floor of the CX180-D3+ when troubleshooting low level ingress. The CX180-D3+ is also able to perform Return Path QAM analysis complete with constellation diagram, so no upstream impairment is left undetected.
