XPERTrak 3.0 simplifies operator transitions to new network technologies. Most critical monitoring and troubleshooting capabilities appear identical to technicians between legacy and DAA nodes, which enables reuse of standard workflows and gear. Operators can offer new services sooner and reduce the opex required to maintain their networks. XPERTrak 3.0 also expands the company's DAA return sweep and spectrum offerings to additional DAA equipment vendors as well as providing more efficient scaling for large deployments. It also provides test capabilities to effectively troubleshoot DOCSIS 3.1 networks.
Judge's Comment: "The ability to monitor DAA nodes both downstream and upstream using existing deployed VIAVI equipment is an operational plus. The upstream heat map is of particular interest as more upstream spectrum becomes in play. The ability to see interference beneath an OFDM-A carrier is an important feature."
