Forward Path Monitoring System

CATV Forward Path Monitoring Simplified

The CX180F Probe in the VeSion™ monitoring system checks the performance of analog and digital channels being transmitted downstream or toward customers across a CATV HFC network.

Equipped with multiple test engines, the CX180F’s key signal parameters including signal level, BER, MER, and Constellation are scanned continuously and non-intrusively. Advanced spectrum analysis across the entire operating frequency band, detects ingress which can lead to signal impairment and/or failure.
