Forward Path Monitoring System

Talk to us about this

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.
