Sunrise Telecom’s CM2800 Optimizes DOCSIS 3.0 services

OCTOBER 13, 2009 -- Sunrise Telecom Inc. has introduced the CM2800, which the company asserts is the first high-resolution, upstream and downstream sweep system designed to analyze triple-play services and optimize the use of the upstream spectrum for emerging DOCSIS 3.0 services.

OCTOBER 13, 2009 -- Sunrise Telecom Inc. has introduced the CM2800, which the company asserts is the first high-resolution, upstream and downstream sweep system designed to analyze triple-play services and optimize the use of the upstream spectrum for emerging DOCSIS 3.0 services.

Using the CM2800, technicians can identify even small impairments in network performance, speeding plant maintenance, increasing quality of service and reducing outages, according to Sunrise Telecom. The CM2800 will debut at the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo Oct. 28.

“One of the most difficult aspects of DOCSIS 3.0 is upstream channel bonding. Bandwidth comes at a premium, so line impairments must be kept to a minimum,” said Jeff Heynen, directing analyst, broadband and video, Infonetics Research. “The CM2800 allows field technicians to quickly monitor and diagnose issues on both upstream and downstream channels, ensuring no critical voice, data, or video service disruptions occur. This makes certain that service-level agreements stay enforced and subscribers are satisfied with the quality of service delivered.”

The CM2800 is designed to enable technicians to identify and troubleshoot even the most difficult impairments before customers experience service degradation. The high resolution, non-interfering downstream sweep features ensure that the network is operating at the levels and frequency responses required to deliver reliable, distortion-free services, according to the company. Upstream sweep of 5 to 200 MHz, compatible with the CaLan upstream sweep function, enables one person to test the full frequency span of return lasers with a single instrument, significantly lowering capex for existing CaLan customers, Sunrise Telecom adds.

The CM2800 interfaces with the Sunrise Telecom realGATE Broadband Testing Management Tool, a web-based management system for managing assets, test results, and the workforce. Accessible through a standard browser, realGATE centralizes current and historical information allowing users to isolate problems quickly and to detect variations in the system.

The large, color touch screen on the CM2800 provides a graphics display engineered to simplify interpretation and analysis of data. The instrument, combining sweep, triple-play service, and cable modem analysis, together with its automated measurements and Windows CE platform, makes the CM2800 ideal for the most advanced users as well as for technicians who are new to the technology, Sunrise Telecom concludes.

Both the CM2800 and the CM2800E, the European model, are immediately available. The CM2800 supports DOCSIS and Annex B & C. The CM2800E supports DOCSIS/EuroDOCSIS and Annex A, B & C.
