Now with PNM Integration
Cable Plant Monitoring
Enterprise Features for All Networks
Cable Plant Monitoring (CPM) is a real-time network device management tool for your DOCSIS network. CPM handles all of your DOCSIS cable modems, Wireless CMs, eMTA and Cable Modem Termination Systems (CMTS) along with monitoring fiber nodes and other network components. This allows you to readily see network problems, troubleshoot customer access issues, and easily deal with difficult management efforts, including upgrading CPE firmware on a very large scale.
CPM now includes CableLabs Proactive Network Maintenance (PNM) integration. PNM completes the monitoring puzzle, adding proactive monitoring to CPM's real-time, reactive and historical monitoring toolbox.
Enterprise Level Application
CPM has recently been updated to an enterprise application that helps you:
- Manage your network efficiently, thereby controlling network operational costs.
- Increase the network uptime, helping to increase revenues.
The bottom line = a more profitable business.
CPM is network management software that:
- Polls and/or passively collects information from the DOCSIS network
- Gathers and displays device status
- Creates alerts and alarms
- Stores data for later analysis
- Links to other internal systems through a powerful API library
Hierarchical network displays show at-a-glance network component status. By drilling-down and selecting individual items, you see a detailed view of parameters for nodes, amplifiers, cable modems, eMTA, CMTS, and other equipment. System map integration provides a deep-dive look at network impairments, allowing for speedy diagnosis.
CPM includes PNM functions like Tap Energy, Frequency Magnitude, Tap Phase, Frequency Group Delay, Symbol Rate/Micro Reflection Level, Frequency Phase, used to identify groups of impaired modems and identify their source on a system map. Also included are downstream and upstream Full-Band capture, Main Tap Compression and much more. These PNM tools show these metrics from CM and CMTS perspectives. Overall, PNM gives operators a new view into network components and impairments that allows for the ultimate preventative maintenance to keep customers happy and to reduce truck rolls and inbound call center traffic.
CPM has been designed to be massively scalable, with support for millions of CPEs. Scalable architecture supports any number of administrators or operators running the CPM console, creating a centralized view of the health of the network, and leading to coordinated, accelerated troubleshooting and problem-fix operations. Through our distributed capabilities, CPM can be used at many sites, while being managed from central locations.
The CPM software is built from Java code, with a pure Java client and a web client for ubiquitous access. It features a modular design and architecture designed around API’s, allowing CPM to be easily tailored to integrate with any applications in your OSS environment.
Fast and Efficient
CPM stores and manages the network device information in an embedded object database, for optimum performance. CPM runs on Linux-based platforms and can be run in a VM environment or in a standard server deployment.
The software is easy to install, to operate, and to get to a high return on your investment!
