The DCE provides a significant competitive advantage over traditional hardware-based instruments.

Montreal, Canada (PRWEB) October 11, 2012

Averna, an industry-leading developer of test solutions and services for communications and electronics device-makers worldwide, announces the availability of the first channel emulator designed specifically for the DOCSIS industry. This new product – the DOCSIS Channel Emulator (DCE) – is especially beneficial to OEM/ODM labs to facilitate and accelerate their internal validation and external certifications for SCTE 40 with multi-system operators (MSOs). It also enables MSOs to easily simulate real-life cable-plant environments in their labs. See the DCE demonstration at the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo in Orlando, October 17-19, in Averna’s booth #809.

The DCE ensures that modems, set-top boxes and gateways are resilient to cable-plant noise interference so that MSOs can deliver the highest quality of service. As this industry moves to high channel counts – 24-bonded downstream channels and 8-bonded upstream channels – the DCE cost-effectively enables the impairment of these channels while maintaining synchronization between headend (HE) and customer-premises equipment (CPE).

“The cable and broadband industry will greatly benefit from this highly adaptable, software-based instrumentation solution,” said Averna’s Jean-Levy Beaudoin, Director of Business Development. “The DCE provides a significant competitive advantage over traditional hardware-based instruments, enabling MSOs and device-makers to efficiently simulate field environments and help the industry achieve higher quality of service.”

DCE Highlights

  • Multiple channels: Up to 24-channel simultaneous processing (3x80 MHz input bandwidth for DS)
  • Scalable: 8-DS channel blocks of 80 MHz can be added with additional modules
  • Large frequency range: 65 MHz–1.004 GHz (DS) and 5 MHz–80 MHz (US)
  • Real-time impairments: Phase noise, AWGN, micro-reflections, CTB, CSO, C/I, etc.
  • Intuitive interface: Real-time Spectral and Constellation displays
