FCC Proof-of-Performance Testing
Tero makes it easy and affordable to run bi-annual FCC Proof-of-Performance tests. Tero can run the tests, find the problems (if any exist), fix them and provide you with a log of the entire process. The FCC requires that all cable systems with 1000 or more subscribers conduct bi-annual (twice a year) Proof-of-Performance tests, with intervals not to exceed seven months. For details on Proof-of-Performance test requirements, refer to the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 47, Part 76. Click on the link below. http://www.fcc.gov/mb/engineering/601.html – LINK NOT GOOD

Proof-of-Performance Testing
Tero Technicians run a series of tests to measure how well the plant is running. Tests commonly include:

  • Aural Carrier Frequency Offset
  • Visual Carrier Level
  • 24-Hour Test
  • Aural Carrier Level
  • In-channel Response
  • Visual C/N
  • Coherent Disturbances
  • Terminal Isolation
  • Hum and Repetitive Transients

Ingress Mitigation/Leakage Detection
Tero tests the outside plant for RF ingress and leakage. Typically, testing starts at the node and moves downstream toward the home. These problems are most commonly within a subscriber’s home where RF is uncontrolled. Tero uses specialized equipment which enables the technicians to trace any problems to a specific home.

System Sweep Forward and Reverse Sweep
Tero offers customizable system sweep services using JDSU’s non-interfering sweep system. All documentation is presented in an easy-to-use electronic format.

What People Are Saying

“We worked with Tero on another project where they were working directly for the owner. We were pleased with their performance and decided to use them on our nationwide insurance project. Their knowledge of the business and performance in the field in working within our time constraints were key factors in choosing to work with them again. On the nationwide project tero worked closely with us and responded quickly to multiple changes which happened very late in the job. They were able to respond to these changes without delaying the overall completion. Our typical projects are private or negotiated work where we rely on our subcontractors for their expertise on design items and cost savings solutions, so a good working relationship is critical. I would feel comfortable having Tero involved in design meetings offering their suggestions to the owners/architects whom we have worked with for years. We have complete confidence in Tero, knowing they will get the job done in the timeframe needed and at a fair price.”
