Cisco spent much of SCTE touting its high-density Prisma SuperQAM XFP Transmitter module for its flagship Prisma II optical video platform. The module is another key piece of Cisco’s converged cable access platform migration plan, which aims to help cable ops to use their existing infrastructure while adding network capacity incrementally.

The service is also expected to allow MSOs to double the density of their current chassis, and reduce power consumption by half. Cisco wants to fit the module into the optical physical interface card in its next-generation Terabit CCAP product, the converged Broadband Router (cBR-8), which will directly link to the optical node and further reduce rack space in the cable head-end.
