CATV Fiber Optic Signal Transport

Broadband CATV analog AM-VSB and QAM transmission requires extremely linear fiberoptic transport. Olson Technology 1310 nm directly modulated transmitters provide high optical power for long point-to-point links as well as multiple split systems for campus CATV distribution to multiple fiber optic nodes in campus/enterprise distribution systems. Emcore's directly modulated DWDM transmitters provide point-to-point CATV distribution with the capability of also transporting satellite downlink signals in the range of 950 - 2700 MHz. A variety of Olson mini-node receivers exist to provide the required forward path RF power to drive multiple set-top boxes with return path capability.

Features:

MDL6000
  • Transmitter optical output powers of +3 to +15 dBm to drive up to 45 km point-to-point CATV links or multiple splits.
  • Optional transmitter optical output power adjustment.
  • CATV forward path operation up to 1000 MHz.
  • Transports analog AM-VSB and/or QAM signal formats.
  • Superior CNR, CSO, and CTB performance.
  • 950 - 2700 MHz satellite signal transport.
  • Optical mini-node receivers with up to +46 dBmV RF output power.
  • Optical mini-node receivers with variable gain/slope adjustment.
  • Optional return path transmitters for mini-node receivers.
  • 19" 1RU rack mount chassis to house up to 3 forward path transmitters and/or return path receivers.
