TraceSpan’s DOCSIS Xpert(TM) Supports 8×4 Channel Bonding
RA’ANANA, Israel, February 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –
TraceSpan(TM) Communications [http://www.tracespan.com ], a leader in broadband
analysis and monitoring solutions, announced today the general availability of the bonding
solution for 8 downstream channels and 4 upstream channels in its DOCSIS Xpert(TM) 5300
DOCSIS Xpert is a powerful protocol analyzer which provides full visibility into the
DOCSIS network and equipment, including detailed network topology and complete and
accurate analysis for troubleshooting of DOCSIS product performance, standard compliance
and interoperability. DOCSIS Xpert captures and analyzes the signals without using any
DOCSIS chipset and has no effect on the data transfer between the CMTS and the CMs. With
its unique multi-layer probing capability, it provides comprehensive DOCSIS 3.0 PHY and
MAC layer analysis from multiple upstream and downstream bonded channels simultaneously.
It supports both DOCSIS 3.0 and EuroDOCSIS 3.0 as well as the legacy DOCSIS and EuroDOCSIS
2.0, 1.1 and 1.0.
“Since its launch in late 2011, DOCSIS Xpert received excellent market acceptance and
has been purchased by a number of MSOs and manufacturers”, said Dr. Hanan Herzberg,
TraceSpan founder and CEO. “Now, as MSOs are looking to offer more bandwidth over their
DOCSIS 3.0 networks, they need a tool to test the 8×4 bonding configuration, which is
becoming widely used in their networks. DOCSIS Xpert’s enhancement to support 8 downstream
channels addresses this need extremely well, expands its capabilities even further and
makes it the most comprehensive DOCSIS testing tool in the market today”.
Support for the 8×4 bonding configuration is available as an option in new DOCSIS
Xpert systems and may also be added on to existing systems by purchasing additional
software and hardware modules. Some of TraceSpan’s customers have already purchased this
enhancement for their DOCSIS Xpert systems and can now utilize the full 8×4 bonding
capabilities in their testing environment.
DOCSIS Xpert’s intuitive user interface displays detailed information for the physical
layer, MAC layer and upper layer protocols, thus allowing its users to quickly and easily
monitor and troubleshoot their DOCSIS equipment and networks. Cutting significant time
from DOCSIS development, deployment, troubleshooting and interoperability testing, DOCSIS
Xpert accelerates time to market and return on investment.
