VeEX™ intros the world’s smallest full featured DOCSIS 3.0 Analyzers. CX150-D3+ and CX180-D3+

Weighing less than 1kg (2.2lb), the new CX150-D3+ and CX180-D3+ from VeEX Incorporated are the industry’s smallest and most portable handheld testers to verify and provision 8x4 channel bonding used in high bandwidth DOCSIS 3.0 CATV networks. An integrated, dual band DOCSIS 3.0/EuroDOCSIS 3.0 modem, supporting data rates of up to 120Mbps Upstream and 400Mbps (Annex A) or 320Mbps (Annex B) Downstream, enables MSOs, Service Providers and Installation Contractors to evaluate High Speed Internet, and related multimedia service offerings to residential, mobile backhaul and SMB customers.

Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) addressing is fully supported while both units are backwards compatible with earlier DOCSIS 2.0/1.1 systems. Equipped with powerful Gigabit Ethernet hardware, service engineers and technicians can perform high bandwidth Ethernet/IP throughput tests via high-speed WAN (DOCSIS 3.0) and/or LAN (10/100/1000BaseT) interfaces.

Both models incorporate powerful Signal Level Meter and QAM analyzer functions including the ability to test deep interleave digital video carriers. While both models offer superb Forward and Return Path spectrum analysis capabilities, advanced users will benefit from the greater sensitivity and lower noise floor of the CX180-D3+ when troubleshooting low level ingress. Paired with a compatible upstream generator, the CX180-D3+ is also able to perform Return Path QAM analysis complete with constellation diagram, allowing technicians to characterize transmission impairments in the upstream.

Wireless connectivity has been enhanced to improve workforce management and facilitate test result export in varying test applications and environments—field technicians now have the option to upload test results via Bluetooth, 802.11b/g/n WiFi or 3G UMTS connections—functionality which is over and above the standard USB memory stick or FTP capabilities already supported.
