CGNDP3M works with any DOCSIS 3.1/3.0/2.0/1.1 architecture – low split, mid split and high split; DOCSIS 4.0 meter in development
Philadelphia, PA (SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2022 #4037) – September 20, 2022 – Hitron Technologies, the fastest growing DOCSIS customer premise equipment (CPE) manufacturer in North America, announced that its CGNDP3M Wireless DOCSIS 3.1 Test Meter is in production. The portable, weather-resistant meter gives technicians all the diagnostic tools needed to accurately pinpoint and resolve issues at the customer premise, outside plant, and headend.
The CGNDP3M is controlled by Hitron’s ProMeter mobile app, which is compatible with iOS and Android devices. Technicians can run tests and view the diagnostic readings right on their smartphone or tablet, minimizing device costs and technician learning curves. With a lower price point than traditional test meters, cable operators can afford to equip their entire workforce with diagnostic testing tools to deliver a better customer experience.
“Efficient, effective network testing is essential for controlling operating costs and ensuring quality of service. In collaboration with operators, we’ve designed a tool that empowers technicians to resolve issues the first time and avoid multiple service calls. The CGNDP3M is a preferred meter for field installation and plant maintenance because of its ease of use and low cost of ownership,” said Greg Fisher, President and Chief Technology Officer at Hitron.
Additionally, Hitron is developing a portable test meter for DOCSIS 4.0, the future of the hybrid fiber/coax network. The availability of standard-compliant DOCSIS 4.0 diagnostic tools will be critical as operators engage in lab trials, early deployments, and full-scale deployments.
The CGNDP3M is currently in production. Key features include:
- Able to scan low split (5-42 MHz), mid split (5-85 MHz), and high split (5-204 MHz) upstream
- Full frequency spectrum support up to 1.2 GHz
- Comprehensive diagnostics including: upstream/downstream, spectrum, channel scan, MER, Flux, QAM analysis, OFDM, OFDMA, Ingress, Noise, Ping, and Traceroute
- Hitron’s exclusive SnapShot takes a snapshot of the network at a particular time
- SpeedTest measures speeds over 2 Gbps
- SpeedTest via coax and Ethernet to CPE
- Battery supports up to 8 hours of operation
- Optional cloud data collection and reporting
