ARRIS ServAssure Alarm Central Virtual Spectrum Analyzer is designed to provide cable operators with an easy way to inspect signal performance and better prepare for a DOCSIS 3.1 launch and subsequently check performance, without rolling a truck.

By deploying the Virtual Spectrum Analyzer, cable operators can anticipate additional opex and/or capex savings due to less need for investment in complex and expensive hardware spectrum analyzers. Alarm Central helps broadband cable engineers proactively maintain the HFC network, enabling them to deliver a superior customer experience, ARRIS says. Virtual Spectrum Analyzer's features include:

  • Automated detection and management of HFC plant outages and proactive impairments
  • Near real-time outage detection for fast MTTR
  • Automated verification of alarms to eliminate false positives and improve operational efficiency
  • Real-time problem verification while techs are onsite, reducing repeat truck rolls
  • Proactively addresses amplifier issues affecting multiple customers
  • Improved alarm propagation including above the fiber node for accurate root cause detection
  • Escalation to third-party tools to create an automated end-to-end ecosystem
  • Cloud hosting support, which reduces operator IT expense and simplifies deployments
