Averna has announced a new release for its Jupiter 310 Design Verification System to integrateDOCSIS 3.1 acceptance test plans for PHY test cases.

The Jupiter 310 is designed for automated DOCSIS3.1 physical (PHY) layer pre-certification testing of DOCSIS 3.1 devices. The company says it offers 100% coverage for all ATP-PHYs with mixed-mode test points.

"With this release, we are now covering all PHYs test cases, including PHY-31 and PHY-39, which makes our Jupiter 310 the most complete automated test and certification solution for DOCSIS 3.1 in the industry. Also, the addition of the standby mode, besides multi-functional dashboard, turns Jupiter 310 into a powerful troubleshooting tool, which can assist CM design test engineers to quickly validate their device and better understand the nature of failures," said Jean-Lévy Beaudoin, Averna VP of Platforms and Innovation.

The Jupiter 310 includes a vector signal generator (VSG) to generate impairments and a multi-functional dashboard consisting of vector signal analyzer (VSA), MIB browser and RF interface unit control.

New features in Jupiter 310 Release 2.0.0 include:

  • PHY-39 P2.1: Upstream - Cable Modem Timing and Synchronization (Timing stability)
  • Standby mode
  • All master test plans are now updated based on CM-TP-PHYv3.1-ATP-I01-181218
  • Includes fixes to bugs reported in previous releases

The new Jupiter 310 release is available at no cost to customers with a valid Jupiter 310 maintenance and support agreement.
