The DHT-PS-AT-03 is a hybrid HMS and DOCSIS® status monitoring transponders, designed to install inside of Alpha* XM2 power supplies. Like all of Electroline’s transponders, these embedded versions offer the same ruggedness and standards compliance that operators require. It is designed to withstand extreme temperature and electrical conditions typical of the outside HFC plant, as well as to meet DOCSIS® cable modem specifications.
With SNMPv1, v2c and v3 support, the DHTPS-AT-xx series easily interfaces with up to 10 network management systems to monitor power supply objects defined by HMS. It also monitors several DOCSIS® RF parameters, and supports various user-configurable objects to help operators customize the way they monitor and manage their power supplies. Optional Dual IP capability provides further flexibility for implementation. Optional accessories enhance the DHT-PS-AT-xx status monitoring capabilities that include an independent tamper switch and an expansion port to accept future addons.
Specifically designed to monitor and control an Alpha* XM2 Series standby power supply, this embedded transponder fits inside the communications section of the power supply, without the need for special status monitoring cards. It receives information directly from the power supply’s circuitry, translates it to standard HMS performance parameters defined for power supplies, and transports the data over the same channels as subscriber cable modems to an SNMP-based network management system. Operators can then leverage this data to maximize the network’s quality of service, identify potential sources of outages before service is affected, and drive a preventive maintenance plan.
The DHT-PS-AT-xx series complements perfectly Electroline’s standalone DOCSIS® transponders: the DHT-PS-NA-02 is designed for a variety of HMS and legacy power supplies. Most networks can be outfitted solely with Electroline transponders, thus reducing training and setup costs.
