Denver, Colo. (PRWEB) September 18, 2014
Momentum Telecom, a leading hosted VoIP, broadband management and unified communications provider, today announced the official launch of Momentum’s Proactive Network Maintenance (PNM) Analyzer and RF Upstream Spectrum Analyzer modules that can be paired with the company’s existing Broadband Explorer (BBX) services.
Momentum has also begun signing existing and new MSO partners for a 30-day product demo of the two Nimble This services. The demo allows MSOs to trial the Momentum-hosted, SaaS solution on a single CMTS for 30 days.
“This product demo gives providers the opportunity to try out the application and to actually see real, live impairments in their plant,” said Todd Zittrouer, COO for Momentum. “Cable operators will realize the benefits of the technologies like improved quality of service and lower maintenance costs almost immediately.”
Proactive Network Maintenance Analyzer
Momentum’s Proactive Network Maintenance (PNM) Analyzer uses DOCSIS pre-equalization technology to help cable operators proactively identify service impairments that would otherwise not be seen until customers are adversely affected.
The PNM Analyzer quickly discovers impairments and pinpoints the location of the issue on a map to lower maintenance costs for providers and improve video and high-speed data for subscribers. DOCSIS pre-equalization technology gathers the information needed to run calculations to identify impairments and enables cable modems to automatically adjust their signals to compensate for upstream impairments in the cable plant like micro-reflections or group delay, immediately improving the upstream signal levels received by the CMTS.
The PNM Analyzer:
- Locates upstream and downstream impairments
- Lowers maintenance costs for cable operators
- Improves video and high-speed data service for subscribers
- Pinpoints the location of impairments using Mapping Technology
RF Upstream Analyzer
The RF Upstream Spectrum Analyzer serves as a powerful, yet inexpensive, replacement for traditional spectrum meters and is the only analyzer tool that allows cable operators to see ingress under the DOCSIS carrier. With Momentum’s solution, there’s no need to move the cable modem to another frequency to locate a problem, and because an investment has already been made in Cisco CMTS, there’s no expensive hardware to purchase.
Cable operators can easily view the RF upstream spectrum for all customer data -- not just a small sample or estimate like the competition -- without having to hook up special test equipment, splitters or connectors. The RF Upstream Spectrum Analyzer lets operators monitor their entire system 24/7 from anywhere -- all without interrupting CMTS operation.
The RF Upstream Spectrum Analyzer:
- Supports DOCSIS 1.x, 2.0 and 3.0
- Remotely links via iPad or Android device
- Monitors every upstream port 24/7 without impacting CMTS
- Requires no additional hardware or equipment
“Momentum is very excited to officially announce the rollout of these products,” said Brandon Hagood, Director of Product Development for Momentum. “The PNM and RF Upstream Analyzer modules marry perfectly with BBX and add a deeper level of proactive diagnostics to our suite of Broadband Management Services.”
The Momentum Telecom Wholesale Team will be in Denver September 22-25 for the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo. Please visit booth #621 to learn more about the PNM and RF Spectrum Analyzers, and stop by to meet Brady Volpe and the Nimble This team! The specific date and time of their appearance will be announced on Momentum’s Facebook and Twitter.
