The R-PHY Monitoring Platform Provides a unified view into the configurations, operating state, and performance of thousands of RPDs in your network, enabling a unified, comprehensive and time-correlated view to accelerate issue diagnosis.
Gain deeper insights and more effectively manage your network
The R-PHY Monitoring Platform can gather telemetry directly from RPDs in your network via the Generic Control Protocol (GCP) and supports all CableLabs-defined TLVs, which provides more complete and detailed data, in a more performant manner, than via SNMP.
All leading RPD vendors are supported; enabling faster fault isolation, more detailed performance comparisons between Remote PHY devices and more accurate capacity planning.
The received telemetry is amalgamated, correlated and written into a robust database fully under the MSO’s control. It can be extended beyond RPDs to include CCAPs, CIN switches and cable modems. No data is transferred to any external cloud infrastructure and all data is entirely under the ownership and control of the MSO, no additional costs are incurred, and no additional accounts need to be managed.
Data polling rates and retention periods can be customized, and backups can be performed both periodically and continuously, and point-in-time recoveries are possible.
RESTful API interfaces enable integration with other MSO monitoring systems and data stores and the entire solution can be run on an x86-based COTS host running Linux.
Comprehensive “single pane of glass” for all Remote PHY devices in your network simplifies device and service monitoring, data correlation and issue triaging. Network faults that affect multiple elements, such as PTP clock synchronization, can be quickly root caused.
Furthermore, the effect of RF signal degradation and interference on data transmission rates and packet loss can be easily visualized and compared across a fleet of RPDs.
