Fault identification and location

QUIVER®

Identify and locate the most elusive impairments in the field without disrupting your network

Identifying the causes of network impairments and being able to pinpoint their locations are key to eliminating them. Quiver® is the only field-troubleshooting tool that can do just that. The unique power of Quiver comes from our patented Xcor® technology, which uses advanced passive radar signal correlation to measure the presence of CPD and any other nonlinear distortion. Quiver allows technicians to consistently detect well below the system noise floor, revealing impairments previously invisible or intermittent. Quiver boosts your productivity by determining the precise distance to a problem source, eliminating hours of guesswork. Most importantly (especially to your customers) your technicians can identify and locate issues without ever disturbing your network.

The productivity tool technicians
can’t live without

We’ve seen it time and time again – once a technician demos a Quiver, they don’t want to give it up. On top of Xcor, we’ve added a lightning-fast FFT, forward and return spectrum analyzer, and our latest innovation, an optional NTC TDR, that works as a PNM companion tool. It’s the first TDR able to operate accurately on a live plant without network disruption – truly a game changer in network maintenance.

QUIVER

Know precisely what you’re dealing with and where to find it

CPD

Measure the distance to CPD impairment within a few feet.

NTC/TDR

Resolve linear distortion zones identified by PNM tools.

RTN Spectrum

Identify ingress with a fast FFT return SA with Noise under QAM mode.

SLM

View signal levels for the entire forward spectrum.

FWD Spectrum

Quickly check levels or downstream issues.

Constellation graph

Identify the type of interference and distortion.

Leakage detector

Analog, OFDM, any pilot – agile over the full BW.

Flexible Operation

Built to help you
perform better

EASY: Locate the problem and get right to work knowing exactly what you are there to fix. That’s all there is to it.

EFFICIENT: Track impairments faster and identify their source quicker – without pulling pads or taking your network down. Quiver’s NTC TDR now reveals and pinpoints linear distortions.

PRODUCTIVE: Quiver detects impairments well below the system noise floor making it possible to fix problems invisible to other meters. If it exists, Quiver can find it.

SIMPLE: Quiver’s intuitive design makes it easy to understand and operate.

COMPLEMENTARY: Designed as the field companion to your valuable PNM tools.

FAST: Add Quiver Navigator to use your system maps to flag candidate impairment locations, further reducing the short time it takes to troubleshoot with Quiver.

PROFICIENT: Quiver’s FFT Spectrum Analyzer has the speed and resolution to capture brief ingress and impulse noise transients.

ACCESSIBLE: Quiver’s 20 dB test probe enables non-disruptive measurements at locations without forward and return test points.

Quiver

Quiver devices are the only tools able to identify and locate CPD. Simply connect to the network and the Quiver display tells you exactly how far you need to go to fix the problem.

Quiver XT

Quiver XT packs a built-in network traffic-compatible TDR to range linear distortions, and Xcor technology to pinpoint the source of non-linear distortions instantly without ever pulling pads or interrupting your network.

Quiver S

We completely rethought the Quiver platform to deliver Quiver S; advanced NTC TDR technology and Xcor radar in a high-performing, compact package.
