The CM3 Series also features a premium portable spectrum analyzer, digital video QAM analyzer, non-interfering sweep system, DOCSIS 3.0 network analyzer, advanced SLM and PC emulation. The new features and enhancements provide the tools to complete the required FCC Proof-of-Performance measurements and facilitate troubleshooting.

and network reliability,” Moukadam added.
