Cheetah Technologies Releases CheetahXD 4.0 to Power Network Tracker PlusNew Network Performance Monitoring Software Ensures Highest Quality of Experience (January 17, 2012)
PITTSBURGH, PA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/17/12 -- Cheetah Technologies, a carrier class, systems management solutions developer for broadband service providers, today officially released its new CheetahXD 4.0 software to accompany its Network Tracker Plus product. CheetahXD 4.0 is a network performance management system that enhances a service provider's control over, and view of, activities occurring on its networks.
The 4.0 release of CheetahXD provides operators with advanced visibility and transparency through Network Tracker Plus, the network performance monitoring device which was initially introduced and demonstrated in November 2011 during the annual Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) show in Atlanta. Network Tracker Plus provides a full suite of testing and reporting capabilities, giving cable service providers the ability to run a complete system analysis on analog video, DOCSIS data and quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) digital video channels. These tools allow service providers to keep a close eye on network performance and ensure advanced quality of service, workforce automation or telemetry functions, while supplying up-to-the-minute data to optimize performance in real-time.
"Cable and broadband service providers are under more pressure than ever before, as competition is incredibly fierce," said Steve Day, SVP Marketing & Strategic Planning, Cheetah Technologies. "Ensuring and maintaining a high quality of experience is an essential part of every operator's service. CheetahXD 4.0 supports network performance monitoring in any mission critical location in the networks, allowing for a proactive approach to quality assurance in real-time."
Other applications of CheetahXD 4.0 with Network Tracker Plus include:
- Automating the semi-annual FCC proof of performance test process;
- Performance monitoring of mission critical locations, such as high-value neighborhoods, high density population centers and network trouble spots;
- Real-time monitoring for difficult customer network or content troubleshooting issues;
- Ensuring workforce quality assurance to eliminate inadvertent workforce-caused outages; and,
- Providing long-term system analysis and scorecards at critical network health points.
"CheetahXD 4.0 is our major application software release for 2012. Within it, we are adding additional value through GIS presentation of the network, QAM video carrier analysis, expanded frequency analysis to 1 GHZ, and much more," said Mr. Day. "For our existing licensed customers and for our new customers this provides the only management platform capable of a 360 view of the network including optical network, RF network, power supplies and HFC system analysis."
