As part of the RF testing services, Excentis has already successfully implemented programmes in which HFC amplifiers are tested for quality before being deployed in the network. This ensures that the amplifiers fulfill all requirements as mandated by the cable operator. The requirements for acceptance are defined by the operator and enhanced by Excentis’ vast experience. Excentis uses the most advanced test equipment to evaluate compliancy for a number of key parameters, including among others:

  • Gain Flatness and Adjustments
  • Carrier to Interference-plus-Noise Ratio
  • Intermodulation (CSO & CTB)
  • Spurious
  • Over Voltage Protection
  • Stability during Maximum Power Pass
  • Temperature Stability and Maximum/Minimum Operation Temperature
  • Power Consumption & Operating Voltage
  • Automatic Slope and Gain Control
  • Return Loss
  • Noise Figures
  • Hum Rejection
  • Isolation
