VAROS 107: Extensive firmware update available

With the latest firmware release Vxx.04 each user now has 3 more interesting features for his VAROS 107 device:

  • Speed test with the DOCSIS 3.0 analyzer

  • TILT measurement with the analyzer in TV range

  • Long-term data logging with the data grabber

The screenshots show these 3 functions. Special attention was paid to the new speed test functionality. Thus it can be determined what data rate can be achieved at the point of measurement, both in uplink and in downlink. Together with the PING test and the downstream channel utilization the technician gets a very detailed picture of the HFC network performance on site.
