About Arcom

Providing meaningful value to our customers.

We work with our customers to understand their challenges and create solutions that help improve their performance in lots of little ways that have a big impact on their business.

Decades of sustained innovation

It’s all about the customer – and not just our customers, but theirs too. For more than 35 years we’ve been in the field, testing and retesting everything we make alongside our customers, on their systems, gathering their feedback to continually iterate and make improvements. We’ve built our success on this unique approach to innovation – we engineer solutions by studying our clients and developing answers that are efficient, effective, and tuned to their exact needs, both today and tomorrow.

Innovative Timeline
1980

Temperature- stabilized trap

Arcom produces the first temperature-stabilized trap using four poles and an innovative urethane encapsulation method.

1989

Double Density Tiering

Arcom introduces both the first double density tiering filter and the first miniature trap.

1991

Gaussian system

Arcom takes a significant leap in positive filter technology with minimal loss of picture quality.

1997

Step Attenuator

Arcom invents a new technique to mitigate return path noise and ingress.

2001

SAWDEC

Arcom produces the first pay television scrambling system to utilize surface acoustic wave filter technology.

2002

Arcom Digital is founded

Looking at the status quo test equipment and network monitoring tools, we saw some deficiency and room for improvement. We formed Arcom Digital to introduce new solutions based on modern digital signal processing techniques – to enable operators to better maintain their network.

2002

CφO

Arcom is able to reduce network distortions through a carrier phase optimization feedback and control system for modulators.

2004

CPD Hunter

We are the first and only company to use chirp radar to detect and locate non-linear distortions. These distortions can wreak havoc upon a network and ruin the user’s experience. With CPD Hunter, impairments can be identified, tracked down, and repaired.

2006

Xcor Hunter

Xcor Hunter is the technological progression of CPD Hunter. Using passive radar techniques with existing QAM channels as the probing signal, it allows for unobtrusive identification and detection of nonlinear distortion in the HFC network.

2009

I-scout

Our first-of-its-kind probing system is permanently installed at strategic points within the network, allowing operators to quickly locate the source of ingress within a plant.

2009

QS field testing

Using correlation technology, for the first time, QAM signal leaking from the cable network was able to be measured – and the source location identified.

2010

QS Commercial introduction

After extensive field testing the first QAM Snare Navigator and Isolator product are introduced to the industry, allowing for quick and easy identification of LTE signal leakage.

2011

SDV SGM

We answered a specific customer’s need by engineering this inexpensive, easy-to-implement method for remotely troubleshooting Switched Digital Video service group problems.

2011

F-scout

We were the first to remotely monitor forward network performance by placing small spectrum analyzer probes on existing line passives.

2013

LTE

We added LTE signal strength measurement as an integrated component of the QAM Snare leakage detection process, giving users the means to efficiently and effectively prioritize repair.

2013

Pilot transmitter

Our solution allow the technician to easily troubleshoot shielding efficiency (SE) at the LTE band in the difficult home network environment where sub 1uV leaks can be a problem.

2014

Navigator and Isolator Plus

These third-generation QAM Snare field devices eliminated the need to use two devices for detection, simplifying the leak identification process.

2015

NTC TDR

A new and innovative network traffic-compatible TDR that troubleshoots locations of linear distortions while the network remains up and running – no more taking the network down to troubleshoot.

2015

Arcom PNM+

With synchronicity between RF and CMTS impairments, Arcom Proactive Network Maintenance Plus goes well beyond other PNM tools to help customers better monitor and maintain their network.

2016

QS Snoop

A fourth-generation QAM Snare product specifically focused for the needs of the fulfillment technician.
