Broadband Linkup: Cable-Tec Attendees Have Been ‘Out of Control Amazed’ with Network NoiseHawk

For veteran tradeshow attendees, sometimes it’s difficult to inspire a real wow-worthy moment on the show floor. On today’s episode of Broadband Linkup by Promptlink Communications, host Sean Heath caught up with Promptlink Communications’ Foad Towfiq and Chris Boring at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2019 in New Orleans to discuss the launch of Network NoiseHawk and share impressions from the pre-eminent cable telecommunications event.

SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2019 has become the standard for the latest technology rollouts. This year, Promptlink Communications rolled out its Network NoiseHawk, a patent-pending algorithm to analyze data, accurately pinpoint network noise, and easily display it on a map for cable operators and their technicians to quickly correct noise issues.

Towfiq and Boring say the reception has been overwhelmingly enthusiastic for Network NoiseHawk.

“They’re just out of control amazed,” Boring said, who has been attending this staple of Cable TV tradeshows for 20 years and hasn’t seen anything like it.

For Promptlink Communication’s on-site demo, they set up a cable plant environment with live equipment and live modems, and analysed the plant with their software.

“We have noise generators set up in different points in the network, so customers can move the noise around,” Boring said. “When they move the noise, our tool can pinpoint exactly where that noise is.”
