Improve Laser Transmitter Performance

The FOS device is the fastest, most effective tool available for optimizing laser transmitter performance in CATV systems.  With a unique ability to measure OMI, headend technicians can ensure that more transmitters are operating at peak level in less time.

Traditional methods for determining OMI not only require expensive lab-grade equipment, but also a highly experience professional to perform the manual trial-and-error tasks.  Since several variables can and do affect OMI, this is a time-consuming process, resulting in as much as an hour or more per transmitter to complete.

When using a DOCSIS-compatible FOS device, all of these variables are taken into account automatically, eliminating manual calculations.  Easy to use, technicians of all experience levels can support the effort to enhance system performance and retain subscribers.

Applications for CATV & Multi-Channel Operators:

  • Laser transmitter setup
  • Laser transmitter maintenance
  • Network troubleshooting
  • Performance benchmarking

Applications for CATV Equipment Manufacturers:

  • Laser transmitter development & manufacturing
  • Quality assurance testing
