Viavi Solutions Inc. (NASDAQ: VIAV) and VeEX Inc. on July 16 announced that the companies have agreed to a patent license related to cable leakage and pressure testing, as well as a supply agreement where VeEX will be able to distribute the Viavi Seeker HL Source Transmitter and pair it with a VeEX receiver (such as the VeEX CX310) for use in detecting cable signal leakage.
The patented Viavi technology leverages the Seeker HL Source Transmitter to provide a simple, efficient way to help eliminate intermittent issues related to unwanted signal leakage and ingress in a home coaxial network.
The Seeker HL Source Transmitter injects two high output test carriers to the home network in the place of cable signals, and "pressurizes" the home network, revealing any damage or craftsmanship issues that may lead to service interruption from LTE carrier or other ambient RF signal ingress.
A leaking signal can be detected by a technician using a properly optioned Viavi ONX or DSP meter, or the VeEX CX310 receiver. The technician can then save the time otherwise needed to find and fix a faulty component or rewire the entire home.
