Spirent Communications plc has introduced the Tech-X Flex, a handheld network and service quality tester, to identify and troubleshoot IP video services in the consumer's home. Touted as the industry's first solution to support testing of IP video service quality over multimedia over coax (MoCA) networks, the modular unit also supports current and future in-home networking technologies including Ethernet and WLAN.

With the Tech-X Flex tester, telcos and cable TV operators can deliver high subscriber Quality of Experience (QoE) by verifying and troubleshooting both network and service related issues inside the customer premise. The Tech-X Flex is claimed as the only solution that allows technicians to conduct in-home qualification of MoCA along with 10/100 Ethernet and 802.11 networks in a single unit, and the industry's first handheld tester to support a dual MoCA test interface for in-home networks.

With both dual MoCA and dual Ethernet interfaces, Tech-X Flex offers field technicians an in-line monitoring solution that helps them avoid issues with proprietary signaling between the STB and the video server.

Price starts at $3,000, with shipments available this month.
