Use Case: The JDSU Digital Service Activation Meter (DSAM) is a handheld field meter for DOCSIS/EuroDOCSIS™ cable-modem installation that increases the speed and efficiency of installers deploying high-speed data and video services. DSAM offers the industry’s first DOCSIS 3.0 models that provide best-in-class full DOCSIS 3.0 testing. Field View QAM leverages JDSU PathTrak™ MACTrak™ technology to deliver upstream modem performance information to the field, making troubleshooting modem issues a one-person job, reducing find-and-fix time and manpower overhead while streamlining field operations. SmartID lets DSAM users troubleshoot and validate inside-wiring connectivity and quality in a fraction of the time using the SmartID advanced coax probes. Mapping of connectivity, losses, and issues proves that the coax can support distribution technologies, including MoCA before connecting any customer premises equipment.
