Re: [Signals] Signal check

An upstream transmit of 35 is not low - don't know who's been telling you guys that. 30 is low, 25 is REALLY low but 35 is just fine.

Fairly low compared to other user's signals around here. Not saying it's anything to be concerned about unless he's having problems with his connection.

Are you sure about that for D3 systems ? It could be low in some systems / environments / cases

Yes, in fact the maximum transmit requirements drop for D3 bonded when they bond over 3 channels.

And he is having issues.

35 dB SNR on the downstream is within spec but I would prefer to have it higher.

The DOCSIS 3 spec only requires 30db SNR on the downstream for signals between -6 and +15. 35db should be fine.

That's because of "total power" but then why is it that many systems like to and do have DOCSIS 3 run higher like above 40 dB but below 50 dB than did DOCSIS 2 ?

The upstream power level does seem to fluctuate a few dBs throughout the course of the day. Latest reading:

Downstream Value
Frequency 705000000 Hz
Signal to Noise Ratio 36 dB
QAM QAM256
Network Access Control Object ON
Power Level -4 dBmV
The Downstream Power Level reading is a snapshot taken at the time this page was requested. Please Reload/Refresh this Page for a new reading
Upstream Value
Channel ID 1
Frequency 30100000 Hz
Ranging Service ID 649
Symbol Rate 5.120 Msym/s
Power Level 33 dBmV

The signal fluctuation coincided with these log entries which refer to channel changes. Is this a sign of ongoing issues?

Because some systems are lazy and think padding return amplifiers will get them better carrier to noise figures because the modems are transmitting higher?

My logs are capturing a lot of entries pertaining to dynamic downstream changes. Is this normal behavior? I don't recall the frequency changing as often as it is right now, or at all.

That small sampling of log entries shows only one or two of these events per day. By no means is that a lot. Intermittent / occasional noise on the lines can cause these.
