GainMaker Optoelectronic Node 1GHz GainMaker Optoelectronic Node 1GHz

The GainMaker® Node is designed to serve as the cornerstone of today’s emerging fiber deeper network architectures.  The GainMaker Node combines the superior proven technologies of both the GainMaker RF Amplifier and Prisma® Optical components.  Available with two or three high level RF output ports, it is the ideal platform for delivering video (digital and analog) as well as high-speed data services over advanced hybrid fiber/coax (HFC) networks.  With its modular design of fiber receiver, reverse fiber transmitter and RF amplifier electronics, the GainMaker Node station can provide the full complement of functions required by advanced networks.

The GainMaker Node accommodates a second forward receiver with an RF switch to accommodate forward path optical redundancy.  Reverse traffic can be combined and routed to FP, DFB, or CWDM reverse transmitters.  The High Gain Dual launch amplifier module provides two high-level outputs (with the ability to split one internally to feed a third port).   Additionally, the GainMaker Node is available with an optional custom status monitoring transponder for use with Scientific-Atlanta’s ROSA / TNCS status monitoring and control element manager.  On-board temperature, automatic gain control (AGC) levels, RF switch position, power supply condition, as well as other features/parameters can be monitored through this transponder.

Installation of the GainMaker Node is quick and easy.  The GainMaker Node can be ordered as a complete node or as an upgrade kit for existing GainMaker System amplifiers.  The fiber receiver is delivered with preconnectorized fiber terminations.  The optional preconnectorized cable stub is the ideal method for connecting the GainMaker Node to the fiber network (see cable stubs data sheet).  External termination connectors are also available for central strength member and LXE style fiber optic cables.  The GainMaker Node includes a 4-fiber handling tray for these cables.

System reliability and upgrade flexibility are integral to the construction of the GainMaker Node.  Key features include a chromate plated housing to withstand harsher operating environments, local status monitoring of each module, and a 1 GHz housing for future higher bandwidth applications.

GigaXtend GMC 1.2GHz Line Extender GigaXtend GMC 1.2GHz Line Extender

The ATX 1.2GHz GigaXtend™ GMC Line Extender broadband amplifier is designed to assist cable operators in evolving their HFC networks to meet subscriber demand, while fully leveraging previous investments. Gallium Nitride (GaN) technology supports RF output levels up to 57 dBmV. The ATX GaN amplifier provides one high-level forward RF output.

ATX 1.2GHz GigaXtend GMC Line Extender modules have increased gain to allow drop-in for 750MHz, 870MHz and 1002MHz spacing. Backward compatibility often allows upgrades to higher bandwidth with no respacing or resplicing. The DC power supply is modular and located in an updated housing lid for easy access. All ATX 1.2GHz Line Extender modules are factory configured with reverse amplifier, diplex filters, thermal compensation circuit, forward interstage pads and equalizer to promote optimal performance. Optional single-pilot Automatic Gain Control (AGC) configurations are also available.
