Maintaining the health of your plant can now be achieved with one instrument, including everything needed for system wide testing. Eliminate the need for multiple instruments—the 1G DSP conveniently combines CATV, DOCSIS 3.1 Cable Modem, Gigabit Ethernet, and Optical testing, and save capital expenses at the same time.
Designed to meet maintenance technician challenges, this meter has powerful troubleshooting tools for experienced techs, yet simplifies decision making and streamlines standard processes and procedures for the more novice tech. This results in more efficient technicians, greater overall system health, and allows techs to continue using the same meter as they become more experienced.
The 1G DSP can achieve throughput testing speeds of up to a gigabit/sec using a dedicated Ethernet test port or the internal cable modem. The 1G DSP can perform either roundtrip or one-way Key Parameter Index (KPI) measurements for full Ethernet service testing. With constant payload testing for Layer 2 through Layer 4, the 1G DSP is built for verification of both Ethernet Service Level Agreement (SLA) and Quality of Service (QoS) metrics.
For optical power measurements, the 1G DSP can be optionally equipped with a single input port for measurement of single mode (1310 nm, 1490 nm, and 1550 nm) wavelengths with interchangeable FC, SC, and ST style adapters.
A high-quality, accurate, precise TDR is an option for the 1G DSP. When a TDR test is needed, the tech can switch to an alternate test mode on the meter instead of going back to the truck (or office) to get an application-specific instrument (TDR).
The 1G DSP features a large, high resolution, ultra-bright, color touchscreen interface, simple pass/fail indicators, and powerful autotest apps to streamline troubleshooting and make the technician’s job easier. Everything about this next-gen meter was built with the technician in mind—from remote control of the meter via a web browser, to the long battery life, quick charge time, and glow in the dark keypad for those dark, cramped spaces. This meter also includes a visual fault locator (VFL) that makes it easy for the technician to locate and identify loss points in patch cords, patch panels, and enclosures.
