Sunrise Telecom Inc. (OTC:SRTI) says it has added new features to its CM3 Series of plant maintenance analyzers. The new features include full DOCSIS 3.0 capability and a one-button proof-of-performance (POP) feature for assuring validation of network compliance to FCC standards.
The test equipment company asserts its CM3 Series offers plant maintenance personnel at cable MSOs the most comprehensive tool for performing preventative maintenance and troubleshooting the distribution network from the head-end to the home.
The CM3 Series updates incorporate several gated measurements including composite carrier noise (CCN), composite second order (CSO), composite triple beat (CTB), and advanced HUM, as well as the company's new i-QAM feature. The new i-QAM option is designed to enable analysis and troubleshooting under a QAM signal without service disruption.
The CM3 Series also features:
- a portable spectrum analyzer
- digital video QAM analyzer
- non-interfering sweep system
- DOCSIS 3.0 network analyzer
- SLM and PC emulation.
The CM3 now enables the completion of the required FCC Proof-of-Performance measurements and facilitate troubleshooting, Sunrise says.

"In keeping with our mission to enhance productivity for our customers around the world, the added capabilities of the CM3 Series, along with the platform's inherent usability and workflow optimization software, make it a must-have tool for those responsible for plant maintenance and network reliability."
