LEA can use the DOCSIS Phantom to monitor relevant information without being detected. The solution follows the company's monitoring solutions for ADSL, ADSL2, ADSL2Plus, VDSL2 and GPON networks, which currently being used by a variety of Law Enforcement Authorities all across the globe.

"Cable networks impose significant challenges on Law Enforcement Authorities, which need to monitor the information on the line", said Dr. Hanan Herzberg, TraceSpan's founder and CEO. "Now, they can do this thanks to DOCSIS Phantom, the first and only passive DOCSIS monitoring solution. Along with the excellent feedbacks on our existing monitoring solutions, we've received many requests from our customers to help them address this need, and now we're proud to provide them the solution."

Elaborating further on the new release, TraceSpan Communications says that DOCSIS Phantom has the ability to intercept target communications directly from the line and collect a hundred percent of the information to and from the ISP or communications provider.
