Effigis' CPAT Flex solution is intended to let operators detect and continuously monitor egress and ingress before the anomalies adversely impact customer service. Enhanced reporting tools include alarm notifications to alert personnel as problems develop. CPAT Flex is designed to operate as a stand-alone solution or as a component to existing proactive network maintenance (PNM) tools.
VeEX's VeSion cloud-based server platform integrates VeEX's RF Monitoring probes, Sweep system and Fiber Test Units to verify, maintain and troubleshoot the HFC network. Additional service delivery tools include PNM, DOCSIS Monitoring/Demodulation and MPEG analysis to identify impairments long before they become noticeable to the subscriber. Other features include centralized workflow and asset management.
"The partnership enables cable operators to align different specialized test tools to improve the proactive maintenance of their network," said Cyrille Morelle, CEO/president of VeEX. "Reducing costly truck rolls and enhancing subscriber quality of experience is the primary goal of service providers worldwide, thus working together to make our respective solutions compatible is a significant step especially as both companies expand globally and address many of the same customers."
"Effigis considers VeEX a strategic partner to enhance its global position with cable operators. Integrating the CPAT Connection application to the VeSion platform provides deeper intelligent analysis of overall touch points within the cable operator's network," said Magella Bouchard, VP telecom CPAT division at Effigis.
