Equipped with the same base feature set as the CX100+, the CX120+ boasts the industry’s first Upstream Signal Generator with FEC capabilities as an option.
This unique feature is used to characterize the HFC return path for CW, QPSK, QAM16, QAM64, or QAM128 transmission while QAM analysis is made possible when the unit is used in conjunction with the CX180+ handheld, CX180R headend monitoring solution, CX350, or CX380.
The TDR option pinpoints opens, shorts and other impedance abnormalities quickly. Equipped with the Remote View option, the CX120+ is able to remotely retrieve on-demand return path QAM test results performed at the headend by the CX180R system.
