Cable Operators are faced with the critical challenge of significantly increasing the efficiency and capacity of their existing HFCHybrid fiber-coaxial (HFC) is a telecommunications industry term for a broadband network that combines optical fiber and coaxial cable. (Hybrid Fiber-Coaxial) networks in order to support the growing bandwidth demands for broadbandThe term broadband refers to the wide bandwidth characteristics for signal transmission. services. Existing HFCHybrid fiber-coaxial (HFC) is a telecommunications industry term for a broadband network that combines optical fiber and coaxial cable. network infrastructure must be upgraded. Complete and extensive overbuilds are not a viable option. Existing HFCHybrid fiber-coaxial (HFC) is a telecommunications industry term for a broadband network that combines optical fiber and coaxial cable. network capacity can be optimized in order to support the economical expansion of broadbandThe term broadband refers to the wide bandwidth characteristics for signal transmission. services and it must be done seamlessly and without disruption. This requires high quality building blocks and components that reduce complexity, in order to meet the growing demand for bandwidth optimization related to the roll out of the DOCSISData Over Cable Service Interface Specification (DOCSIS) is an international telecommunications standard that permits the addition of high-bandwidth data transfer to an existing cable TV (CATV) system. It is employed by many cable television operators to 3.1 standard. MODULO meets this challenge.

The MODULO Frame

The MODULO HFCHybrid fiber-coaxial (HFC) is a telecommunications industry term for a broadband network that combines optical fiber and coaxial cable. Headend Toolkit consists of a 5 RU frame to be equipped with various high-class transmission modules for application in HFCHybrid fiber-coaxial (HFC) is a telecommunications industry term for a broadband network that combines optical fiber and coaxial cable. networks – over fiber and coax. It is already prepared to be equipped with a controller module to provide remote controlA remote control is a functionality which allows the user to interact between the devices without touching them. This can be done via a remote protocol e.g. SNMP or Leitch. and SNMPSimple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a remote protocol used for managing devices in M&C Systems. support for active products. Screening effectiveness fulfills the standard Class A+10dB. MODULO fully supports DOCSISData Over Cable Service Interface Specification (DOCSIS) is an international telecommunications standard that permits the addition of high-bandwidth data transfer to an existing cable TV (CATV) system. It is employed by many cable television operators to 3.1.

All Modules are DOCSISData Over Cable Service Interface Specification (DOCSIS) is an international telecommunications standard that permits the addition of high-bandwidth data transfer to an existing cable TV (CATV) system. It is employed by many cable television operators to 3.1 ready and screening effectiveness fulfills the standard Class A+10dB.

FEATURES

  • Modular chassis can fit up to 18 active cards or 22 passive cards
  • Single card can be configured as a splitter or combiner
  • All cards are DOCSISData Over Cable Service Interface Specification (DOCSIS) is an international telecommunications standard that permits the addition of high-bandwidth data transfer to an existing cable TV (CATV) system. It is employed by many cable television operators to 3.1 compliant

BENEFITS

  • Integrated monitoring portA Monitoring Port is an additional RF port providing the same or less signal level as e.g. at the appropriated in- or output. allows M&C system integration
  • Amplifiers with gainGain is defined as the ratio of the output power to the input power in dB. If a device provides gain the input signal will be amplified (gained) and thereof the output signal amplitude is typically higher than the one of the incoming signal. and slope control
