The BSAT Laboratory

Creation of a Lab involves a considerable investment in capital equipment, but more importantly, effectively managing the lab and its use, can be a very divergent activity for equipment and service suppliers. BSAT understands this need and provides a solution, building on more than 10 years of experience in running Test Labs, our Management understands the need for, and provides delivery of, on time test completion of projects.

The Broadband Solutions and Testing Inc., test lab replicates a real world Service Provider (MSO) and it includes a head-end equipped with several brand name CMTS's and more than 1000 different vendor Cable modems on the Cable Plant. The RF plant has several analog and digital channels and supports the introduction of typical and atypical network error conditions. Our lab network includes PacketCable™, DOCSIS™ and Euro-DOCSIS™ modems and CMTS’s and are supported by our experienced staff for completion of lab and field testing.

For PacketCable™, DOCSIS™ ATP testing, we use five functional ATP test stations to access all our CMTS’s, Sigtek Sniffers, Smartbits, IXIA’s and software the ATP test stations execute all DOCSIS™ 1.1 ATP’s, including PacketCable™ and DOCSIS™ 2.0 TEP’s automation scripts. We also offer DOCSIS™ 3.0 testing now.
