Averna DP-360 Protocol Analyzer Now Supports 16×4 Channel Bonding

Averna has announced a new software release for the DP-360 DOCSIS Protocol Analyzer, featuring support for 16×4 channel bonding.

Averna’s DP-360 is the industry standard for functional DOCSIS and EuroDOCSIS network analysis, providing exceptional visibility into all layers of the network. Multiple system operators (MSOs), chipset manufacturers, product developers and certification bodies use the DP-360 to quickly find and correct trouble spots.

New DP-360 Release Highlights

• Supports up to 16 single or bonded downstream channels for testing 16×4 configuration

• Upstream gain control, MER reading and power reading available in the remote API for automated power adjustment

• Automatic detection of modulation type (64-QAM or 256-QAM) and DOCSIS on downstream channels and lock on 4 upstream frequencies for faster setup and analysis

• Support for DOCSIS 3.0 Energy Management messages (EM-REQ & EM-RSP)

DP-360 clients also have access to Averna’s new DOCSIS 3.1 Early Adopter Program, which offers MSOs and equipment vendors a smooth and cost-effective transition to Averna’s next-generation solution for testing their cable equipment based on the new DOCSIS 3.1 standard.
