Aurora Networks says that it offers the widest segmentation toolkit in the industry, which includes products for both the downstream and the upstream paths. An extensive optical passives offering enables operators to easily implement full downstream and upstream segmentation for multiple nodes on just one fiber.
Downstream segmentation solutions include:
- AT3545G ‘C’-band DWDM full spectrum transmitters – This transmitter family is designed to work in multiple applications; from transmission of up to 120 narrowcast QAM channels in the 300 MHz to 1 GHz frequency band in a Broadcast/Narrowcast overlay architecture, to a full spectrum transmitter application. Full spectrum models are available to support either up to 30 analog channels and 124 QAM channels, or up to 79 analog channels and 75 QAM channels, or 154 QAM channels, in the 54 MHz to 1 GHz frequency band.
- *Broadcast and narrowcast overlay – With up to 40 narrowcast wavelengths supported along with the broadcast services on just one fiber, and at extended reaches, this system provides operators with the most flexibility and scalability.
For the upstream, Aurora Networks digital return technology is optimized for segmentation, with more than 80 return segments supported on just one fiber. The company’s CWDM solution supports up to 15 wavelengths. For even greater reach and fiber efficiency, the DWDM solutions support up to 40 wavelengths.
