Best Practices for Upstream Monitoring


In a perfect world for broadband operators, the upstream would be a pristine signal that has no impairments and provides the user with fast data speeds and a flawless video experience. However, as with all signal streams, impairments happen. Whether large or small, there are best practices for tackling any type of impairment.

In this video, we'll take a look at upstream monitoring and the basic strategies to apply to "keep the upstream clean" to minimize impairments that can cause harm to the signal path and reduce the customer's quality of experience. We'll tackle issues like noise funneling, CPD, alarm management, and more.
