Agama has added remote PHY monitoring capabilities to the Agama Analyzer to give insight into the DEPI streams, from the CCAP core towards the remote PHY, ensuring that any issues in stream or content integrity can be detected.

Agama will showcase the new remote PHY monitoring capability at IBC2018, September 14-18, in Amsterdam.
