MILPITAS, Calif. -- JDSU today announced the release of the PathTrak(TM) Video Monitoring (PVM) System and the PathTrak RPM3000 System module to ensure high-quality delivery of video, VoIP and high-speed data services over advanced digital networks. JDSU's leading communications test and measurement solutions for cable network operators are on display this week at the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo, Philadelphia, booth #543.

The PVM System helps operators segment forward path video problems in minutes, instead of hours, by proactively monitoring for RF and MPEG impairments. In addition, PVM software provides network engineers and technicians with web-based access to both live and historical RF and MPEG performance measurements throughout the network, speeding troubleshooting time.

The new PathTrak Return Path Monitoring System module, the RPM3000, expands visibility into upstream digital network performance and provides proactive DOCSIS 3.0 measurement and certification capabilities, including analysis of live spectrum, modulation error rate (MER) and quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM).

"JDSU's new PVM capabilities provide increased visibility into digital networks and the performance of advanced broadband services, providing our cable customers with the tools they need to ensure quality and reduce churn in an intensely competitive environment," said Kevin Oliver, director of product marketing in JDSU's Communications Test and Measurement business segment.
