Original Press Release:
Motorola Makes Cable Spectrum Management Simple with Automated RF Sentry Application
LAS VEGAS, May 7 /-- Motorola, Inc. (NYSE:MOT) at The Cable Show 2007 today introduced RF Sentry, a new PC-based application that provides an intuitive graphical interface designed to optimize cable network configurations and maintenance operations within the cable operator's DOCSIS network and subscriber environments.
The RF Sentry software operates with Motorola's unique Advanced Spectrum Management technology embedded in the BSR family of Cable Modem Termination Systems (CMTS). By displaying data graphically, RF Sentry allows operators to make rapid performance adjustments, continually optimize bandwidth and streamline maintenance activities. The software extends the capabilities of the BSR platform and is a key differentiating element in Motorola's portfolio of proven bandwidth-management technologies.
"RF Sentry allows cable operators to localize problems on the upstream path and easily and dynamically optimize bandwidth for peak performance," said Kevin Keefe, vice president of Marketing for Motorola Connected Home Solutions. "For the first time, operators can conduct measurements on a modem-by-modem basis and optimize the assignment of modems to logical channels through an easy-to-use and intuitive graphical interface."
Cable operators can leverage logical channels to improve throughput on DOCSIS 2.0 and upcoming 3.0 cable modems as well as legacy DOCSIS 1X modems. This mixed-mode operation is critical for operators with a diverse set of cable modems displayed through their networks.
The RF Sentry application can run from any physical location in the network as long as IP connectivity to a BSR platform is available. Demonstrations and more information on the application are available at Motorola's booth #1452 at The Cable Show.
