Averna – Test Engineering Solutions
DP-1000 DOCSIS 3.0 and 3.1 Protocol Analyzer
Key Features


Real-time capture, filter and complete analysis of all DOCSIS MAC-layer data through FPGA-based signal processing

Developed in conjunction with major industry players, and provides a cost-effective solution for both DOCSIS 3.0 and 3.1

Optional DOCSIS vector signal analyzer (VSA) for RF measurements like SNR, MER, and EVM



Ensure Smooth 24-7 Operation for Your MAC Layer

Averna’s DOCSIS Protocol Analyzers are the industry standard for functional DOCSIS and EuroDOCSIS network analysis, providing exceptional visibility into the MAC layer. Multiple system operators (MSOs), chipset manufacturers, product developers and certification bodies use them to quickly find and correct trouble spots.

Best Tool on the Market for DOCSIS 3.0 & 3.1 Protocol Analysis

Optimized for real-time signal processing with FPGA technology, the DP-1000 analyzes up to 32x8 single or bonded US/DS channels (DOCSIS 3.0) and 2x1 OFDM US/DS channels (DOCSIS 3.1), with numerous channel-filtering, demodulation, triggering, display, and upgrade features.

As a passive sniffer between CMTS and CPE devices, the DP-1000 silently captures and filters DOCSIS MAC-layer data in real-time to verify RF parameters, validate MAC-level communication, troubleshoot interoperability issues, and improve network performance.
