White Paper: Recreating the Field in the Lab – CATV Network Simulation

rs-featured

Whether you’re a developer looking to test your latest design or a network engineer evaluating equipment prior to deployment, realistic simulations of a cable network are a key part of exposing components to operating conditions in the field. This approach is particularly useful when developing or assessing cable TV receivers and amplifiers, which must cope with many different types of interference effects.

White Paper: Understanding Frequency-Specific Cable Egress

white-paper-r-s

Whether you’re responsible for maintaining a CATV network or an LTE network, egress from cable television systems has become one of the more serious sources of interference in 700 MHz LTE networks in the United States. Traditional tools and methodologies for detecting and locating egress are focused almost entirely on analog signals in the VHF aeronautical band and therefore cannot be used for digital signals at higher frequencies.
