Cable Modem Test Platform
Setting Industry Standards - Over 100 Million Devices Tested!
Promptlink’s Cable Modem Test Platform (CMTP) is a SNMP-based tool designed to test the functionality of DOCSIS/EuroDOCSIS cable modems, Wireless CMs and EMTAs. This system allows MSOs, Cable Modem Manufacturers and Independent Test Laboratories to perform testing and verification on any cable modem-based device.
CMTP has broad support for the mixed environment of DOCSIS 3.0, and earlier devices. Similarly, it supports all DOCSIS/Euro DOCSIS equipment vendors, impartially treating each vendor's devices with maximum performance and minimum hassle.
CMTP is fully automated, requiring no user input for testing.
CMTP tests the basic Cable Modem, Wi-Fi and EMTA parameters such as signal levels, signal to noise ratio, etc. as well as device throughput and packet loss. For PacketCable devices, CMTP tests each phone port individually, with maximum functionality being tested.
CMTP can also be configured to upgrade the firmware of the devices in a multi-step and conditional process.
The Promptlink test platform creates an easy, repeatable process that requires no specially trained personnel. The combination of purpose-built hardware and feature-rich software creates a solution to the issue of returned and suspect cable modem-based devices.
The test procedures are fully customizable to meet the specific needs and characteristics of each tester. CMTP runs in an environment that simulates a live cable plant, and then tests for desired device behavior in this controlled environment.
CMTP was designed for automated firmware upgrades and device testing. With the addition of the Automated Testing Components, the entire testing process runs in batch mode, testing up to 48 cable modems in a single session. No other competitive product comes close to this capacity for mass testing of devices.
