Nodes introduced for distributed access networks
Now available from Teleste are two high-performance nodes to complement the company’s offering of devices for distributed access networks.
With distributed access deployments gradually growing in the cable industry, the devices, the AC9400 node and the DAN3 RPD, have been designed to enable a smooth technology transition for operators currently advancing their roadmap of next-generation broadband services.
DAN3 RPD is a compact Remote PHY node, designed and optimised for deep fibre networks and MDU environments. Meeting CableLabs specifications, it ensures interoperability between core solutions from different CCAP vendors without requiring specialised development or back-office upgrades. It supports full spectrum downstream capacity up to 1.2 GHz and it has a single downstream and two upstream segments.
The AC9400 Remote PHY Ready node is an intelligent, DOCSIS 3.1 capable node that supports the Remote PHY upgrade with a separate RPD lid that ensures interoperability with different CCAP cores. It has been designed with operational flexibility and smooth technology migration in mind. With the AC9400, operators will be able to benefit from excellent fibre node capabilities today, and securely switch to distributed access solutions when needed. Also, RF overlay is possible for both signal directions in the RPD operation. The AC9400 node can be equipped with a transponder module, which allows full remote monitoring and control of all node parameters.
Teleste will showcase these new nodes at ANGA COM Digital from 8-10 June.
