VIAVI to showcase new Test and Measurement solutions at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2019

From Cable Installation to Fiber Monitoring 

Bangalore – September 24, 2019  Viavi Solutions today introduced new test and measurement solutions to enable a fast track to optimized cable plant performance. The new products will be showcased at the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2019, October 1-3 in New Orleans, along with a comprehensive portfolio of solutions for simplified migration to Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) and DOCSIS 3.1, faster fiber inspection and optimized Ethernet service delivery.

For today’s service providers and multiple system operators (MSOs), increasing competition means that maximum performance and reliability are crucial to reducing churn. Yet with growing network complexity and evolving technologies, MSOs need to equip frontline cable technicians and contractors with simplified tools and automated processes to enable them to quickly identify installation faults and troubleshoot service issues. To address these challenges, VIAVI is offering the following new solutions:

OneExpert DSP ONX-220

The VIAVI ONX-220 is the newest addition to the trusted OneExpert family of test meters, enabling fast, complete and precise signal measurements to verify cable activation and troubleshoot high-speed Gigabit Ethernet, DOCSIS and Wi-Fi service. A user-friendly dashboard highlights known faults and provides simple notifications, delivering complete autotest results in less than two minutes. The ONX-220 meter enables technicians to promptly identify and resolve complex issues regardless of their skill level for efficient close-out and reporting.

Seeker X Leakage Detection System

VIAVI leakage detection technology helps MSOs enhance subscriber experience by efficiently finding plant faults often responsible for service-impacting ingress issues. The new VIAVI Seeker X sets a new bar for agility to unlock full flexibility for maximum spectrum utilization, while delivering the speed and sensitivity to detect leaks that other systems miss. With compatibility for evolving Remote PHY and DOCSIS 3.1 networks including OFDM detection, as well as traditional HFC technologies, the Seeker X leakage detector offers MSOs a versatile, future-proof solution.

ONMS (Optical Network Management Solutions)

Supporting MSOs deploying deep fiber networks, the ONMS family offers the modular OTU-8000 Optical Test Unit with a tunable DWDM OTDR and the ultra-compact OTU-5000 rack-mounted OTDR for rapid, automatic identification of fiber events such as bends, crushes, breaks and malicious tapping. A single optical test head can test hundreds of fiber links, and auto reports the GPS location of a fault within minutes, dramatically reducing the time and cost of construction and repair. This scalable platform allows for the use of many wavelengths and dynamic ranges in order to optimize fiber monitoring for a changing network, thereby ensuring accurate fiber monitoring, testing and sensing for reliable service from deployment and activation through operation. With integration of alarms into the XPERTrak system coming soon, MSO can have a comprehensive view of their hybrid coax and fiber network.

“With the convergence of trends toward a shrinking workforce, growing workloads and fast-evolving network architectures, cable operators are faced with the reality that frontline technicians often lack both the experience and the skillset needed to rapidly and accurately address service issues,” said Koji Okamoto, Senior Director, Converged Instruments and Virtual Test, VIAVI. “Building on a rich legacy in test and measurement expertise, VIAVI is at the forefront of streamlining and automating workflows to deliver cable and fiber testing solutions enabling MSOs to optimize the cable plant for the best possible customer quality of experience.”

The new ONX-220, Seeker X and ONMS solutions will be on display at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2019, October 1-3, 2019, in New Orleans.

TE Connectivity Announced Ultra Small Spring Fingers

TE Connectivity (TE)’snew ultra small spring fingers have one of the smallest footprints in the market to save valuable PCB space, allowing for use in a broad range of applications with space constraints across various industries.TE’s ultra small spring fingerscan save valuable PCB space with one of the smallest footprints in the market. Closed-loop contact design ensures reliable connection to the PCB, better normal force and higher current capacity (1.5A). Robust side wall minimizes over- compression. Special anti-lifting design can improve assembly e ciency by locking the tip of the contact within the sidewall of the spring  nger, which helps prevent the contact from getting caught on an operator’s glove during assembly. Pick-and-place area supports auto-assembly processes. It also offered in different heights and styles.As an authorized distributor for TE Connectivity, Heilind Asia provides TE’s products and also value added services. Heilind Asia supports both original equipment …
