On Wednesday, July 29th, IEEE Xplore will undergo scheduled maintenance from 7:00-9:00 AM ET (11:00-13:00 UTC). During this time there may be intermittent impact on performance. We apologize for any inconvenience.
The conventional methods of troubleshooting CATV trunk plant and monitoring system levels have to date been less than optimum; requiring a considerable amount of field testing and dependence on subscriber trouble reports. The need therefore exists for an automated status monitoring system on a large CATV system to readily pinpoint fault conditions and maintain a continuous and accurate record of transmission performance.
