Sunrise Telecom Incorporated, a provider of test and measurement solutions for telecom, cable and wireless networks, has launched the next generation of its CM2000 cable modem network analyzer to meet the challenges faced by cable operators delivering advanced triple play services.
Based in San Jose, California, Sunrise Telecom (News - Alert) distributes its products through a direct sales force and a global network of sales representatives and distributors.
The company’s new cable modem network analyzer comes with network management protocol and Telnet testing, integrated file transfer protocol and new options for a CAD viewer and signature capture.
Company officials say the CM2000 combines customizable verification and troubleshooting capabilities with pre-defined automated test suites and the industry’s first full VGA color touch screen. Those features are said to speed up installations and reduce repair time, while increasing quality of service.
Also, familiarity of the operating system and the Internet Explorer browser makes it easy for all technicians to learn and use, according to the company.
Some of the key new features – such as SNMP and Telnet – save time and money as it enables technicians to query network devices and make configuration changes directly from the field. The FTP client lets files be moved between the CM2000 and a central server without a computer, simplifying and speeding the sharing of information.
Also, a new WiFi (News - Alert) adapter option extends the usefulness of the CM2000 allowing access to management and back office systems anywhere, anytime and provides a tool for troubleshooting in-home wireless networks.
“The lightweight, portable, highly integrated CM2000 significantly reduces operational costs by eliminating the need for each technician to carry an external PC into the field. This all-in-one unit speeds installations and reduces repair time while increasing the quality of service,” said Bahaa Moukadam (News - Alert), vice president of marketing at Sunrise Telecom. “The CM2000’s unparalleled flexibility along with its advanced test suites and easy-to-use interface make it an indispensable verification and troubleshooting tool.”
