vCCAP, R-PHY, R-MACPHY and vCMTS testing

New cable network devices and architectures are great at supporting today’s catapulting demand for bandwidth, speed, Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (QoE). Yet, how do you test and monitor newcomers like CCAP, R-PHY and R-MACPHY Distributed Access Architectures (DAA) or virtualized Cable Modem Termination Systems (vCMTS)?

Next-gen devices and architectures: Opportunities and challenges

Higher data rates, lower latency, increased network capacity, better signal quality, lower overall operating costs: next-gen cable network devices and architectures hold countless benefits for cable operators and their customers. Yet, while these evolutions are exciting, deploying CCAP, DAAs or vCMTS creates some huge challenges when it comes to testing. The test equipment and practices that you have relied on for years need to change and keep up with the new software releases at an ever faster pace.
