PON-1000 HUB Converter - Active Splitter - 1:32 Ports - 204MHz / 1.2 GHz

This optical converter is designed to provide the Migration from an HFC-Network to a completely DOCSIS compatible Fibre Network. This model is typically used in high population density areas or Pilot-Projects.

The EMC “Powered Optical Network Converter” enables cable operators to ensure legacy Services (Analog, QAM and OFDM) and introduce DOCSIS 3.x based Services like “IPTV” as well as functions like “Channel bonding” or “Load balancing”.

Thanks to the optical Input possibility, “new constructions” or “remote areas” can be easily “added” to the existing Network without to change or adapt every time “Head-End” Equipment.

The Model Family PON-1000 is rapidly installed and works like a traditional HFC Node but with the advantage to extend the optical Network until the Building or Appartement, eliminating RF amplifying, respective costs for maintenance and ensuring a higher “Quality of Service”.

The compact design of the system permit to serve 32 optical lines within a system size of 1HE/19”. In Down Stream the served lines are feed with integrated optical circuit combining the 32 single lines. The Up stream includes EMC’s innovative Low Noise “Multiline RP-Combiner” to combine 32 optical lines on 1 or more fibers to the “Head-End”.

EMC’s “OBI free®” technology permits to combine optical lines without to limit “channel bonding” or “load balancing” functions as well as to work in parallel with DOCSIS 2.x and 3.x. EMC’s active solution represents a fully transparent and flexible solution supporting DOCSIS, compatible with “other HFC-Systems” and completely “open” for the future digital network architecture.

EMC’s “OBI free®” technology avoid the very complicated upstream node wavelength management, used by many other manufacturers to mitigate the OBI problem.
