Gunslinger

Diablo Data is proud to announce Gunslinger  – a software solution for monitoring and provisioning DOCSIS networks tailor-made for small to medium service providers. When your service is monitored by Gunslinger  your team has amazing visibility into the health of your cable modem network.

Gunslinger  Cable Node Monitor tracks the health of DOCSIS CMTS and Cable Modem deployments, providing fast triage and trend analysis of the DOCSIS RF network environment.

Triage Quickly
Empower your team to react swiftly, often before customers notice problems with their service. When physical conditions change in the network you can see the scope of impact they have on your customers service.

Use the Gunslinger Pass/Fail tool to assess the health of a new modem installation before you leave the customers home, or test the service of an existing customer to pinpoint problems with power levels or signal quality without a truck roll. You can save the test results for later review to confirm your service effort.

DOCSIS system health is polled hourly and results are stored in an SQL database so you can:

  • Review the health of an entire service group at once and see when a change was detected.
  • Visualize your upstream signal health with hourly trend charts
  • Reveal upstream error rates that show how effective your CMTS is at fixing transmission errors
  • See what types of modems are active on your service groups
  • Query network traffic stats for the CMTS reportable interfaces

Provision Any Device
Gunslinger’ Quartermaster module provisions your modems and customer premise equipment including VoIP eMTA’s, IP Set Top Boxes and Access Points. Assign a default class of service for modems, or use the Customer Manager module to provision individual modems with an upgraded class of service. Use our API to provision customers in Gunslinger from your billing system.

Review your active lease detail for all devices to confirm that modems and CPE are getting IP addresses without having to monitor server logs or perform network packet analysis.

Backups in the Cloud
Gunslinger performs an automated backup nightly to the Diablo Data Cloud. You can also create local backups and restore your data at any time. In the event of a catastrophic situation Diablo Data can help restore your deployment remotely using the nightly backup.

Deployment Options

Gunslinger is deployable as a Virtual Machine on VMWare or ProxMox. If you prefer a lower cost option, choose to deploy the Gunslinger Micro-Server – a fully functional, custom-tailored small form factor Linux system that can support multiple CMTS deployments.
