It takes a lot of pressure to make a diamond. And here at Viavi, it takes a lot of hard work. Well, not to make diamonds, but to win diamonds from Broadband Technology Report (BTR). And while they aren’t actual diamonds, these awards are precious nonetheless.


BTR’s 11-year-old technology recognition program, the Diamond Technology Reviews, invites vendors to submit information about products that have been released or upgraded since last year’s SCTE Cable-Tec Expo.

Expert volunteer judges (no BTR staff members) review each entry, and similar products from different vendors are reviewed by the same group of judges. Judges’ individual scores are anonymous.

Each entry is scored on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest. According to BTR’s website, “Scores of 3.5 or above are considered superlative and reflect a very positive opinion from the panel.”

Three Viavi products received scores of 4 or higher. Here they are with some quotes from the judges:

  • OneExpert CATV: 4.5 diamonds
    “Standing ovation from this judge. I love the OneCheck view with the Session Expert. I can’t wait to get my hands on one.”
  • PathTrak PNM: 4.5 diamonds
    “Knowing how difficult it is to start from ground zero to stand up an internal PNM system, I greatly see the value of the…PathTrak PMN solution. This judge only wishes this was available sooner.”
  • SmartOTDR: 4 diamonds
    “If I could only have one fiber test unit in the field, the…SmartOTDR would be an easy choice.”

Congratulations to the Wireline team on this big win!
