Cheetah Network Tracker

The Cheetah Network Tracker is a strand or pedestal mounted network test and DOCSIS® performance monitor agent that is capable of a wide range of programmed network quality assurance tasks. It can be tasked to perform:

  • Analog RF power level measurements, digital RF carrier and DOCSIS® data measurements
  • Physical and structural integrity measurements
  • Power level measurements
  • Measurement data in real time to aid in diagnosing network faults
  • Scheduled measurements to aid in diagnosing intermittent network performance issues
  • Monitoring and alarming on specific RF characteristics to proactively notify users when RF characteristics are outside of user-defined parameters

CheetahXD Network Management

CheetahXD software helps clients consolidate HFC network operations by integrating event and performance data between multi-vendor network elements and management systems.

  • Provides end-to-end visibility across the HFC operations environment
  • Enables NOC personnel to proactively isolate network problems, trace root causes, assess potential impacts and prioritize truck rolls
  • Realtime, fault and performance framework helps pinpoint performance problems by providing a consolidated fault view, as well as multiple domain-specific relational views

With CheetahXD software, HFC network assurance is simplified, operational costs are reduced, and network performance is improved, resulting in enhanced customer satisfaction.

CloudXD Network Management

Cheetah’s cloud service incorporates all versions of CheetahXD from 4.1 and beyond in a cloud delivery platform. This platform improves network performance and network status monitoring in all ways … cost, functionality, service, support and outcome.

  • Eliminates hosting services in the CATV Headend.
  • Reduces cost, headcount, power and space that is typically required by enterprise application software.
  • Small operators, international operators, and enterprise conversions all will save $10,000's per year over traditional alternatives.
  • Runs optical node, power supply and end of line monitoring from one platform.
  • The CloudXD application for each customer installation is housed in secure virtual server locations powered by Expedient.

Cheetah CloudXD is designed from the ground up to be the most resilient, secure and professional service that we could design. Our goal is to provide a scaling opportunity that can easily handle 1,000’s of systems monitored, and that can comply with the data integrity and security standards from Defense applications to private communications networks, and everything in between.
